KYB: Kill Your Top Stories



  • Weclome! here is your KYB you all want. I know you cant wait.

    To save some time I am going to copy and paste the rules outlined by @Brannox from his KYB threads.

    Rules

    Rule #1: When you make a kill, give your reason why you are killing. Just taking it out isn't all that inspiring. Whether you truly dislike it, you strike out of revenge, you feel that there are other important titles that should have made it, or you have legitimate critiques, explaining your kill is necessary to validate its death. Yes, even to those of you who kill because they're good (Because that makes sense :joy: )

    Rule #2: Please keep the updated list for the benefit of other players. Cross through your kill to identify what's been chosen.

    Rule #3: You may kill another game after only 3 other people have made a kill OR if 12 hours have passed from the last overall kill (not necessarily your own). This should be plenty of time for others to get involved.

    Rule #4: If you fail to give a reason, make a 2nd kill without allowing the time to pass/proper amount of players a turn, or if there is an unforeseen issue up for potential review, your kill may not be recognized. This rule is subjective to the situation and hopefully will not be implemented.

    Rule #5: there will be a straw poll for the final two. Please vote for the one you want to win, not lose.

    The story is easily the worst part of these decent at best games, and I honestly have a hard time remembering which is 2 and which is 3, and I played them both on the latter half of last year, i guess the fact that their stories are basically the same doesn't help.

    I think that there's so much better told stories in many other games. 24 was decent TV-series, but this game while not worst thing ever, it's nothing special.

    @TokyoSlim Hit the nail on the head about the nature of this list. ;-)

    Ohhhhh.... I feel it. I understand now. I finally understand everyone's insatiable desire to cut things out. Mwahahahahahaha......

    I'll assume the story and overall mediocrity of the first 3 games also applies to 4, even if it's 10 times better it wouldn't be that great after all



  • @TokyoSlim @Brannox

    LMAO I miss these lists.



  • @Brannox Jones am cry.

    At some point I just stopped trying with Uncharted in these lists, because bard exists. I'm also assuming Nier is mediocre.

    I love me some FFVII, but it's story isn't exactly it's strongest point.

    I have always been more of a elder scrolls fan, I played some of the fallout games but they never really gripped me in the same way in afraid

    No direct experience with Yakuza 0, but from my experience with the series, these games suffer of very poor pacing and the story exposition is pretty bad, so even if the plot is interesting I think it is really affected by this.

    this is actually getting hard for me, I love a lot of these stories, and the ones I don't I think bring some interesting stuff to the table so I don't want to write them off



  • "Never played it, but the story is probably bad "

    Lolllll



  • @TokyoSlim I didn't say it's bad, I said the series has exposition problems :P



  • @bard91 cool. You can kill what you want, it's just a weak reason. :)

    Also, imo Zero might be the best game in the series.



  • @TokyoSlim said in KYB: Kill Your Top Stories:

    "Never played it, but the story is probably bad "

    Lolllll

    And that's why I'm staying out of this - I haven't played a single game other than MM, and the one other game I had any familiarity with, 24, was taken out before I could get to it.



  • @Oscillator if you looked at the original list and had only played MM and a licensed "24" game, i really feel bad for you. :(



  • @TokyoSlim It was the best reason I had for the games of the list :P, and more importantly a valid complaint towards the series
