but Valve proved to us that Plot is king
I'm not going to jump on the whole "Half Life 2 rules / No it suxx0rs Doom 3 rules" bandwagon, but I really wish people would look BEYOND half life when they talk about plot.
Because, really, what plot did Half Life have? Bunch of scientists open up a portal to another world by mistake, aliens come through and kill the scientists. Player kills the aliens and goes through to close the portal.
Oh yeah, move over Tom Clancy, New York Times Bestseller right here...
I mean, come on. If you want to be really cynical about it, Half Life's plot sounded a lot like the plot from the original Doom if you ask me, and nobody ever heralded that as "The King of Plots".
And there have been quite a few games out since then that have had plots that were approximately a hundred times better than Half Life's.
If you REALLY want to make a statement like that, you should say "And Warren Spector proved to us that Plot is king"
Edit : I see people already argued the same point earlier in the thread. Sorry, I usually never read through a whole thread before replying to something I see.
But the whole Half Life = Awesome story thing is a pet pieve of mine anyways.This comment was edited on Aug 14, 16:18.
