G’stuff! I myself enjoy a bit of both worlds, Both the cinematic stuff and the gameplay as well!

For me, however! The most important thing has always been the Story! maybe a top 10 videogame stories is in order? Just a suggestion! ^^

Telltale games?

computerssuck93 says:

The only thing call of duty gives way to is a headache… And if were talking about purely the cinematic moments in game (and nothing to do with the gameplay itself) the Battlefield series annihilates call of duty. Having played both series, call of duties cinematic look like battlefields normal gameplay. Oh yeah how could u leave out Halo??

Chris H says:

Games that focus on story are most of the time trash. I would never watch a movie that I had to stop and do some random activity that I don’t like every 5-10 minutes. That is also why I never liked Shadow of the colossus and also will probably not like The Last Guardian.

Alonso Solórzano says:

Make a Top 10 about the most famoust game cancellations, for example the new Silent Hill. And then also a Top 10 about mysterious and less known games that were announced but we never heard from them again, like that game called Sadness that was announced for the Nintendo Wii and we never heard from it again.
