What’s the story, RPGFan? Do you think it’s worth a look? It seems kinda familiar, like a story from a book.
RPGs and adventure games very often have an outsize focus on storytelling, in part because so many of them are about a group of characters growing and changing over the course of their journey. Naturally, RPG fans of all stripes would prefer their games have a great story and great gameplay, but we know that’s not always the case. In today’s episode, five panelists decide whether they prefer a great story or great gameplay when only one of the two is an option, and highlight several games with particularly good narratives and lackluster playability, or vice-versa.
