Any games that have writing that stands the test of time?

I haven't played it myself but everyone raves about Planescape: Torment.

Writing makes gameplay more enjoyable (if its is enjoyable to begin)

>> No.4535194

Writing is not a game mechanic except in dialogue-based games, anon (the ones with multiple options), and even then it's debatable.

>> No.4535206

Sure. But try eat a good dish on cardboard surface.

>> No.4535475

This, storyfags go away to your containment board and enjoy your games without the fear of running into ludonarrative dissonance.

>> No.4535484

Mostly newer games suffer from that. Anyway whatever.

I've already explained multiple times on this board why NiGHTS into Dreams has the best story in a video game and will never be topped. Should I bother doing it again?

this game because of nerds always spazzing out over it when it gets brought up.

good writing is timeless

>Writing is not a game mechanic except when it is
Good job anon, you undercut your own comment and made yourself not only look like a douchebag, but also retarded.

>> No.4536425

Keep reading. There's only one case and even then it's arguable. Most of the time writing in games is just flavor and has nothing to do with the mechanics.

>> No.4536427

>Any games that have writing that stands the test of time?
Try The Longest Journey. It's a fantasy story that starts out in a futuristic setting and quickly tears itself away from a specific time or place. Dialog is great and characters are very memorable.

>Blood Omen
Also Soul Reaver, definitely. The dialog in these games sometimes make you feel like you're in theatre. The writing's just so good.
