Have you ever played a game and thought, "Wow, this game is so much fun!..... But the story makes absolutely NO SENSE!" before? Yeah, it's a strange topic for a forum, but why not? Just pick the game you loved playing or would like to play, but also can't stand because of the story!

For me, it's Kingdom Hearts.


Now, I've played SOME of the games in the series, some felt more easy to pick up than others did. But for what it was worth, it was way ahead of it's time back in the early 2000s, and even now, they continue to innovate and offer new ideas to make the game better. I applaud that, but PLEASE, can someone do the same for the story!? I understand that Japanese writing is different from English writing, but that shouldn't be an excuse! This story is one of the most convuluted, stupid, and most- padded out stories ever; Re:coded had NO REASON to exist! It was just a stupid retelling of the first game! But even that doesn't compete with the fact that this universe has no rules! What IS a Nobody? Are they the husks of people who have been killed by the Heartless, clones of the original person but also with the same memories, or half the originals' subconscious taken physical form!? I DON'T KNOW, you tell me, game!! I don't know, and if I don't know, why should I care? Never before have I seem a story quite as bad as this one...

Thanx 4 reading!

Assassin's Creed 3. The third game just did not do it for me. It had the slowest start out of any Assassin's Creed game and the ending when

Kingdom Hearts is awesome...

Pokemon is pretty stupid, but it isn't because of the storyline anyway.
FF7 is pretty stupid IMHO.

boogerman on sega but I liked it!

A janitor sneeze and falls into a toilet leading him to a world of snot. You have to defeat the levels with farts, burps and bogey

I'll second this ^ I'm not sure if you're just talking about the first game or the series overall but as for my opinion really the first KH story was epic. It was probably one of the most interesting stories in a video game I've played besides Final Fantasy X. The sequel (the true console sequel KH II) was 'good' but for some reason the story seemed to be dull. Still though it hadn't hit pure stupidity yet. Now after playing and seeing the story of KH: Birth By Sleep (plus reading about the other handheld video games' stories) I just think the series has gone to crap. Time travel this and then the introduction of the '14th' Org. XIII member it just all seemed so forced now. I don't care if it has good gameplay anymore (KH; Birth By Sleep had great gameplay) the story is what always drew me in. Now it just blows.

But yeah...worst plot goes to the rest of the KH series besides one and two.

I see. And to answer your question, it's the series overall. Yeah, I personally found the first game hard to follow, but at least it never reached the levels of pointless, confusing arcs like Re:Coded did. Seriously, if what I heard is true, Coded was just some stupid retelling of the original, though that's just what I heard. So, do you think KH has a chance to come back? Since you were a fan?

And that's fine. I never said that the GAMES were bad, I just said that the STORIES could've been better.

Nope. I felt totally screwed when they released all these different arcs onto multiple handhelds I didn't have (besides the PSP). That kinda sucked real bad. But once I read about the ridiculous stories these games were telling and when time travel came into the mix I just gave up. Plus, Haley Joel Osment sucks as Sora now. His balls dropped real low or something inbetween KH I and II. His voice just sounds so awkward and forced now. All Kingdom Hearts can be now to me is just a good memory.

So you didn't like the first KH's story at all??? I mean I thought it was confusing as heck too but when I played it as a kid it almost was cool having all the mystery behind everything.

Also I played Chain of Memories on the Gamebody Advance. That game and its' story was totally awesome! And that was just with sprites and crappy graphics. I don't know how the story got this bad.

Sorry you feel that way, man.

And no, I didn't COMPLETELY dislike KH I's story...I just thought it was a very, VERY strange way of introducing a franchise to an audience (Though it could just be because I'm American and am not quite used to the Japanese style of writing, who knows?).

Appreciate it bro but it's all good. Anime has filled that void. I'll admit though it was a very confusing game so I understand where your coming from. Anyways forreal all i gotta say is RIP KH.

If you want a dumb plot, look no further than 'Prinny, Can I Really be The Hero and Prinny 2: Dawn of Operation Panties, Dood!'

Plot for #1: As a Prinny, the player is tasked with tracking down the ingredients for the Ultra Dessert for Etna. She gives the 1000 member squad ten hours to track it down, threatening to kill them all off should they fail.

Plot for #2: Prinny first meets up with the Phantom Thief, a legendary thief of the Netherworld who steals rare items, though Prinny doesn't know who he is yet. When the Prinny Squad enters Etna's castle, she informs them that her panties were stolen, and forces the Prinny Squad to look for them by sunrise, or else she'll turn them into panties. A note left by the Phantom Thief tells the Prinnies that he stole the panties, so the Squad goes looking for a rare item to lure him with.

Awww! The plots (if they could even be called that!) were silly, but I still thought they were pretty fun. The games are supposed to be dumb, though, since they are just Prinnies after all.

The plot of the Scott Pilgrim game had me twingeing, but the gameplay was still fun.
