Don’t like agreeing with/ever reading Youtube comments, but it’s true that even if this scene worked the dialogue is fist-bitingly bad. That’s been the case in every snippet I’ve seen.


#922

Can you honestly say youve played a game that had good dialogue/writing?


#923

I can say I’ve played games with better dialogue and writing than that, race to the bottom face.


#924

Last of us was ok!


#925

Undertale?


#926

Dark Souls/Bloodborne

As discussed up thread, Life Is Strange.
Another vote for TLOU.
And Fallout New Vegas.

That’s probably it mind.

Silent Hill 2 is the benchmark for me but im sure most would disagree! Not played last of us myself but what i saw when the tv was playing it was quite annoying. I hate that modern gaming trend of characters constantly stating the bleedin’ obvious out loud the whole time.

Witcher 3, a couple of the Telltale games, Portal 2, Fallen London/Sunless Sea and Kentucky Route Zero too. That’s all without having to go back more than five years or so.

Technobabylon on top of the others mentioned above has some wonderful writing.


#930

Back into Rocket League in a big way. Thought I’d kicked the habit.

Near the end of Nioh I think but not feeling super inspired to pick it up. I also know that when I do I will play it for hours. It’s a joy to play in the moment but I still just don’t care about the story.


#931

Witcher 3 is a good shout, aye.


#932

Pre ordered this so hoping it’s going to arrive by Tuesday! Can’t wait, Persona 4’s one of my all time favourites.

Looking forward to getting into a proper JRPG. I enjoyed FFXV but it had so many flaws. From the reviews I’ve read, P5 sounds like it’s exactly the game I was hoping it was going to end up being.


#933

Played a bit of Hyper Light Drifter last night. Looks and sounds amazing, but man it’s pretty difficult!


#934

i need healing


#935

Portal 2.

Laugh out loud funny, and perfectly paced.


#936

Stephen merchant isnt it? F that.


#937

He didn’t write it…

Great performance though, as is J.K. Simmons, and the lady who plays GLaDOS. If you’ve not played it

a) Play it
b) I am profoundly jealous


#938

Played the first one, got no desire to play the second. Cant stand that bloke.


#939

Lucasarts games from back in the day: Monkey Island, Indy IV, Grim Fandango, Day of the Tentacle. Elegant games from a more civilised age.


#940

I enjoyed a lot of the writing of the original Bioshock
