Op Ed

The Game Reviews - Metal Gear Solid 4ís Wasted Story.
"Now donít get me wrong, I love a great story. The problem here is that cramming a story into a game without it really affecting the playerís experience is wasted effort. Games are interactive, and players remember their experiences with a game more than they remember a cutscene they passively viewed. This isnít wasted effort in the philosophical Sisyphean sense. Publishers pay salaries to people that write story, code cutscenes, and record lines of dialogue. This is cost and time that can be better spent on other aspects of the game Ė ones that actually matter to the player."

Not very impressed by this article. I don't really think you can compare MGS4 and Skate2. Thats like saying the problem with horror movies is they aren't documentaries.
