I agree with this actually  oh its so hard to come up with different stories for shooters. :( well come up with a new genera or game-play that works with stories. Like I dont know, how about the return of he point and click. Where a pacifist like me can play as a pacifist character who solves problems without shooting every one around him. 

See this is why I am such a fan of inie games, because for some reason they are kicking ass in the story department.

@Erick @da_nibbler The rudeness was uncalled for, but yes, we would benefit from a bit of enunciation :)
