    Probably Taro Yoko. Genius at storytelling and delving into the questions of "what makes us sad?" and "why do people kill?".

  • Yoshi9000 posted a message in the forum topic Narrative at the expensive of gameplay?. on the Games Discussion board

    in retrospect, haven't there always been games trying to convey a story. Just look at oregon trail, a game that blends choice making into the gameplay, so the story is pretty much the game itself. Al...

    Sci Fi all the way. But I prefer the more cerebral/arthouse-ish kind. Blade Runner is a more blockbuster favorite, but lesser known favorites are Solaris (Original Russian), and Under the Skin. Cant w...

    Big cyberpunk fan, so Cyberpunk 2077 and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided may finally make me pick up the next gen console. Also so glad the new Deus ex is not a MMO.

    NIER. Unless you need every bit of backstory and setting explained. You will not know exactly where you are, nor will you understand how the world came to such ruin and waste. But that really isnt th...

  • Yoshi9000 posted a message in the forum topic What is your ultimate dream game?. on the Games Discussion board

    An open world game with an emphasis on story telling and atmosphere rather than customizing and leveling up. Gameplay should be simple but have plenty of strategics. Also, multiple endings and many w...

    Glad to see a mention for NIER, I feel its story is fantastic for a videogame, and the voice acting is also great for a JRPG. I manages to tell a tragic story of a father trying to save his sick daug...

    At telling stories? No. Videogames tend to lack writing quality that books and movies have. However, I do believe videogames have just as good plots. Maybe I just havent seen the best movies or read ...
