    Until this, or the last generation, there really wasn't much story telling in games. The ground breaker in my opinion was Metal Gear solid on PS1. Before that, games were pass this stage, kill that boss type of thing...

    That was true for a lot of games back in the day, but there were some games that were very heavily story based before Metal Gear Solid. Like final fantasy or Chrono-trigger or wasteland or those text based adventure games.

    Sorry to post on a year old comment, but this idiocy demanded it. Final Fantasy 6 has the best story in gaming period. Even Final Fantasy 1 had more story than you're alleging, but Ultima: The First Age of Darkness did, too. Quest of the Avatar? C'mon. There have always been games with stories and games like you describe.

    September seems to be the month for cameos by old GR fellas.

    Neat list, surprised the various idiots in Ace Attorney didn't make it, specifically either Dahlia or Von Karma. I agree with jarkey colt, this over elaborate writing is awesome XD. Also I'm currently playing Mario and Luigi dream team and while I'm only 5 hours in, I find it such a dick move what even happened to the pi'llow people and Antasma. What a jerk, but then again both of them suffering was fair play on his part.

    The Ace attorney's schemes of those two you mentioned may be overly complicated, but actually DO tend to make some sort of sense, in a roundabout way, or at the very least you can't really see them accomplish their goals by simpler means, I think. The point of this article is not that all of these are elaborate per se... but that they are complicated without NEEDING to be :P
  • shawksta - September 27, 2013 12:24 p.m.

    True as most things in Ace Attorney tend to be by coincidence or accidents which is what makes then complicated especially when it wasn't "according to plan".

    My guess would be "spoiler alert," except that they didn't seem to care much about spoiling Heavy Rain (like we don't already know) and Bad Fur Day (not that we ever could have guessed).
  • JarkayColt - September 27, 2013 5:54 a.m.

    Is the slightly over-elaborate writing style in this intentional? I just found it funny in an ironic kind of way. Wait...Meiks!? The same Meiks responsible for "Uncle Dave's Scottish 101"? That can't be true. How could anybody write this from inside a box?
  • GR_JustinTowell - September 27, 2013 6:03 a.m.

    Aye, it's Uncle Dave from GRUK of old. Sometimes, when we clean out his box, we find stuff written on the walls inside. So we sub it up, stick some pictures on and put it on the site. We toss him something Metal Gear related and the wailing seems to subside, so it appears to be a mutually beneficial set-up.
  • JarkayColt - September 27, 2013 6:31 a.m.

    Hold on...are you trying to say that being holed up in a cardboard box isn't already Metal Gear related? I suppose the 'novelty' of that one wore off! I mean, besides the box, what else could you give him? A pack of cigarettes? That's an accident waiting to happen if ever I saw one.
  • Cyberninja - September 27, 2013 5:34 a.m.

    Just include the Kingdom Hearts evil scheme, so much had to go right in Birth by Sleep just so the plan had any chance at working
