Whats your opinion on games that are made up of many discs?(ex: disc 1, disc 2, disc 3 etc.) I mean any muli-disc game in general, but mostly ones where the game's story is contained on all of them and youre required to have all three to finish.
In my opinion, I love how those games have a large deatiled plot, but I really dont like the fact that you need all of them. To me its a huge inconvenience! If one of the discs were to get scratched or there were a problem with one cutscene then you cannot finish unless you buy a set. even just losing one disc prevents you from finishing. I think that the whole the story of the game should always be on one disc, for convenience, and if a game has more than one disc, the other disc should only have additional content, or another story not related to the main one, so youre not required to have those other discs.
I had an idea of a way to keep games with a huge main story(or multiple chapters and characters) on one disc:
A character selection screen like the ones used in Fighting games(ex: Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, super smash Bros etc.) you chose the characters(only a certain amount can be chosen), the game's story is programmed with blank spaces between the beginning and end(in the main story), the individual stories and even the characters themselves are cut&pasted into the main story and all character's chapters are the same length to fill each space in the main plot. so every single time you play the story and characters in it will ALWAYS be different, and the main story will only be on one disc.
