I have never played a game for a storyline. I simply play a game if it looks fun. To me, a story is just a nice add on, like a sun-roof in a car, but not necessary to have in your car to drive it. Gameplay is the only thing that keeps me coming back too a game. Someone else said thatvideo gamesaren't an effective medium in telling stories. I believe that was wrong, because I think the stories of Final Fantasy VII and Resident Evil are very compelling. However, if the game can't be enjoyed withoutastory, then it is not a very good game in the end. Games aren't stories, they are games. I would rather play Mario Galaxy anyday over Metal Gear Solid 4 guns of the patriots simply because I get to play Mario Galaxy and not watch it, and that is why I buy a game...to PLAY it.

You see, it's people like your friends why people think gamers are stupid. Thankfully, most gamers love Metroid and we know we aren't sexist. I wonder if these same friends refused too watch Kill Bill or Alien because, God forbid, girls kick butt in those movies as well huh? Me, I like the tough chick who can still be beautiful. Just as most women out there like the guy who can be tough and also soft as well. That whole crazy yin yang thing you know. If your friends are worried about their manhood's by what character they play as in a video game, then it shows they are about as far from being a man as you can.
I suppose you could say that Disney hates Japan because they only have a remake of Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea with your logic. We have 6 different Disney theme parks in America. 2 in california and 4 grouped together at Disneyworld. So Disney must hate Japan and their money because they only gave them two parks right? Think before the next time you post.
I just think of Nintendo's transformation. From disallowing blood in their port of Mortal Kombat, to having a game in black and white that makes the blood REALLY stand out. This game wouldn't look good in color and it would loose it's edge. If they colorized it, it would look too cartoony and not like an adult graphic novel. If they made it with realistic graphics and gave it colors, this would be the most censored game ever. They took the right angle with this one.
