I have to admit, that's not the best example when it comes to the story, IMO, since he talked more about the dungeon than the story... Anyways, the main story in Skyrim isn't the best, but the side quests usually have better stories that I found quite interesting, and it's usually hard for Western RPGs to please me in that area. The Assassin's Guild Story, the story of the rebels' and the empire's struggles, even the struggles of individuals you meet along the way were far more memorable for me. I haven't even done everything yet, too.

Honestly, I don't really have an opinion on Skyrim, of course the memes are annoying now but that's not the game itself. Most game stories are really just reruns now anyway. For me to appreciate the story, it has to be at least 75% unique, or really, really, really long. I actually prefer lots of good puzzles, with a lot of variation, over story in games, but a game with a good story and cinematic scenes will entertain me, like Fire Emblem: Awakening. My only exception is Pokemon, for some reason I just like that series.

"There's nothing new under the sun" said everyone who's ever tried to write a story. There's nothing really unique anymore, it's all been done, everything's just a different version of classic tales that have been told for hundreds if not thousands of years. It's just about what elements you use and how you excecute those stories that make them yours. That goes for games as well.

For music as well. This is exactly right.

@CanisWolfred I guess so. Just to me, pressing L and R over and over til the enemy dropped dead didn't appeal to me. It just felt... wobbly and messy.

I tried a lot of different playstyles, and I find it's more fun when you mix it up with Magic and Shouts along with regular attacks. Especially once you get the high-level shouts and Magic. I especially liked Summoning Minions to help me out.

A generic, pointless story is necessary. An amazing story on the other hand, can make the game.

There are no stupid questions, except for the ones that are.

Not necessarily... They need to concentrate on getting back into the meat of what a game is about ;)

@MadAussieBloke Well, game like Portal 2 and Alan Wake have incredible gameplay, but wouldn't be quite as amazing without the story, would they?

Eat the dots before the ghost get you that is a story, you answer your own question

This is not a story! This is not a plot! A story in a game is an explanation for the scenario; not the scenario itself.

The story can be anything you want to be sweety(you have to save the dots from the evil ghosts by puting them in your belly)thats a story

I don't know if you're being serious or not, but I like this philosophy.
