Storylines Spanning Two or More Games?

  Note: This Is Just A Sentence For Those Wanting To Tear Our Their Eye's With Rusty Hooks.....

 
In RPGs, we all like storylines, of course, that's why most of us play the game. What I'm wanting to ask, what games can compare to certain storylines. Xenogears...Xenosaga(series), I don't see any other games or series of games that are that big and that involved. Matter of fact, I don't know any other series that spans three games with a continued storyline, not off the top of my head anyway! So, to you, what games, that span more than two storylines, are grand in whole. Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga, that series is great.

Ahhhhh! *gouges eyes out with rusty fishhooks*

Seriously though, I had to stop laughing before I could read the rest of your post. ".hack/" Series has a huge continuing story, but unfortunately I didn't like the gameplay and never got into it. Shadow Hearts continues the story from the first to the second, but in an turn probably never existing in Video Game history, the storyline ends, but the series continues for the third game. Unfortunately for games like Xenosaga and .hack, you can't pick up in the middle.

It goes like this (in chronological order):

  • Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII (mobile)
  • Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII (PSP)
  • Final Fantasy VII (PS1)
  • Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children (DVD, UMD for PSP)
  • Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII (PS2)

Quite a long (but great!) story if you ask me... :smileytongue:

Silly why would an RPG player want to tear their eyes out, that would certainly not be good for their game playing life.

Actually I think alot of us play games to play a game, because it is, oh I don't know, a little thing called fun. lol

I'll get interested in a good storyline though and I do like stories that continue from one game to the next, esp. if I have come to like the starring cast.

I believe Mastervivi said something like that when people color-code their posts... and.... oh, look!  I'm doing it now! 

That's exactly why I play games.  For fun, among many other things.

  It would be really hard for someone to pick up in the middle of either of those series, they could, but...what fun is that. Of course, they could read a summary/script, but without those long visuals...they won't get the atmosphere. I didn't remember Shadow Hearts/.Hack. I never liked Shadow Hearts and I know the historical facts are really bad but, I know some people here Love that series.

Well you have to go into the series knowing that 90% of the game isn't serious. They used the historical Rasputine, and made thier own silly little story out of it (I didn't know Rasputine really existed til hearing about it after I played the game.) I'm sure they're going to do something of the same in the newest installment.
And I think that its good that an RPG is willing to step away from the mold in the way that SH does.

Shadow Hearts has a good continuing storyline. I also liked the Lunar series and Xenosaga series as well.
