Dumbest game plots


Sabre

Recommended Posts

What's the best, worst, dumbest or smartest game or film plots you've ever seen, with the focus mainly on the dumb.

I played a bit of Far Cry 2 where the goal is to kill half the population of cival war africa to kill the guy who started the war in the first place. How did he start a war? By selling guns cheap. How the hell does that work!? If they didn't have guns, they would just fight with bombs, sticks, or buy more expencive guns. I'd understand it he egged them on, but so far it never mentioned it. All he did was sell guns. Wouldn't it make sence to kill the evil dictators that are funding you? Also, if your doing missions for these bad guys for information and cash, aren't you making the war worse?

i found farcry 2 story very realistic i think i heard some where this had happen in the past and doesn't surprise me

the worst plot i ever heard was gaylo, why would a bunch of alliens invade earth? just because they thought we had some big power or whatever

@Julius, i assume your a fan of the nerd?

Totally agree, but it at least has some point in its existence, to make us lol at it hardcore....

the scene where they show stock footage is hilarious, the one where he talks about sattelites linking in outer space...

it shows the same clip 4 times, its some stupid radar thingy, then they flip it, then flip it again by showing the same shot as the first, then flip it again.. dont know why, but i couldnt stop laughing!

also the fact that the director cant tell the difference between night and day is simply hilarious..

@Julius, *hi fives!!!*

@macdowel, Im assuming that youve never played halo... at all... otherwise you would get it..

honestly in my opinion, starfox doesnt even hold a candle to how grand of a story Halo is... but despite that i love starfox!

its under devealoped, which is really what makes it so charming! but if the starfox series was as epic as halo is... OMG i would love it till the end of time XD

Wrong. The people who made far cry 1 made crysis. Far Cry 2 is unrelated. Different makers, different setting, different plot.

Farcry 1 is complety different from 2 although the develpers say its the direct sequal

It the publishers who say that. Crysis is the spirtual sequel. That's why I call it Fino. Farcry in Name Only. :)

the dumbest is from fancy pants adventures world 2, simple: 1- fancy pants plays a smple golf game, 2- he won an ice cream as a prize from the mayor, 3-an gigant rabbid(not a raving rabbid) steal his ice cream, 4- you go out to find and kick his butt to get back the ice cream. 5- i won't spoil the (predictable) end of the game.

I like how Battlefield:  Bad Company focused on you, the player, just going around several MASSIVE levels just killing Russians (Which I find not racial at all, *Cough, Cough*) and just going after this ONE guy. 

Here's basically how it's put: 

"Oh, hi! Welcome to Bad Company.  You are assigned to go out there and get yourselves killed a thousand times before killing the man you're after.  Ah, yes, and here:  This is an M416 with a grenade launcher attachment, and a sort of other weapons.  Shoot anything that moves, including your teammates that won't shoot back at you, nor will die!  Have a nice day!"

Somes it up in those words; best as I can do. :lol:

*cough*Star Fox Adventures*cough*

:facepalm:

I would say Pepsi-Man. You play as a guy that has to refill pepsi machines for the public. Plus exploding cars, jumping off building ect.

Its said that Sonic Adventures 2 Battle copied one of the levels from that game. Watch this video to understand.

i liked starfox adventures... i do have to pick at it though, its really not a starfox type of game... its more like legend of zelda (come on the holding up everything you find is iconic of zelda...) since i like zelda, i didnt have a problem with adventures...

however the fact that both the gamecube games didnt give the freedom of choice and had you stick to a linear story was what upset me about it the most... that was what made starfox so unique at the time  :cool:

it was kind of cheezy, but it was a game when we hadent seen the franchise in a long time... it was a bit of a refresher for me, not to mention we got Krystal out of the deal right? *cough cough "SUPER SEXY" cough cough*

lol

Basically my opinion of the game; but lets take a look from a "xbox gamers" perspective...

A planet full of dinosaurs is invaded by the sharpclaw, a bunch of two feet walking mini-t-rex's, and a anon blue Fox has to find out what happened to her parents (she still doesn't know lol) and climbs some ship and gets raped by a t-rex . Discovers she has to return some spirit things that keep the planet together (why not gravity?), she then is thrown into a "crystal" looking almost identical too the one Zelda gets trapped in in Ocarina of Time. Why the game is appearing to be something of the non-space related game series, and giant ship full of forest kritters gets thrown onto the planet-excuse me one-without a weapon to battle armys of dinosaurs.

Yea, I would say that's pretty random. Really good looks for its time (and the gamecube)

Mario.

Think about it for a while. A plumber who gets high eating mushrooms, walk around in brightly colored worlds with mushroom people, angry turtles, some of them flying, and saves a princess named after a fruit from a huge, firebreathing dragon/turtle.

Don't get me wrong tough. I love Mario, in a strictly non-gay way that is.

I want to play Bad Company for the SP game because apparently it goes from sort of typical milletery story into crazy town. I've not played it, but I'm told you don't question it when you have to ignore orders and drive a monster truck in order to steal some gold.

Marios rescue the girl stories are fine I think, but it's the world they are set in that's weird.

Huh. This topic reminded me of a "poem" my friend wrote for an intro on his project for the mario game.

In a magical land

of talking mushrooms and flying turtles

One very fat italian man goes on an epic journey

to find his princess.

With a jump and crushing his enemies under his own weight,

he searches this land for his beloved princess.

the only luck he has on his side is more mushrooms and a star that allows him only temporarily invulnerablility.

this man journeys world after world, castle after castle while in the process of defeatsing turtles, weeds and fire breathing dragons to only find...his princess was in another castle.

This is the story, of the fat man.

Mario.

And that right there ^ basically summed up the storyline.

Of course! Don't you know that people become little angels as soon as you take away their evil guns? LOL, what's worse than the plot of the game is the fact that some people actually believe that the world works that way.

Day of the Tentacle has one of the most stupidly awesome plots:

A genetically engineered tentacle was walking behind the secret lab in a motel one day and took a sip of the toxic sludge coming from the sludge-o-matic machine (because he was thirsty). The sludge gave him super-intelligence and the desire to take over the world. Meanwhile, Bernard and his roommates receive a letter from the other (nice) tentacle who explains that the purple tentacle (the evil one) wants to take over the world and that the mad scientist Dr. Fred will kill them both to stop the world domination. Bernard races to the motel and frees the tentacles, forgetting that one of them was evil. The nice tentacle (green) decides to try to catch up with purple tentacle and "talk him out of it." Dr. Fred discovers Bernard and explains that his plans have been ruined, now the only way to stop the tentacle is to turn off the sludge-o-matic... yesterday "TO THE TIME MACHINE!" Bernard and his roommates get in the time traveling outhouses (Chron-o-Johns) and they prepare to depart. Unfortunately, Dr. Fred uses a fake diamond in the machine, causing the travel to stop early. Bernard is sent to the present, but one of his friends ends up in the far future, the other in the far past. Together, they have to work together by flushing items through time to each other to return to the present and stop purple tentacle once and for all.

poor poor mario.. his princess will always be in another castle... :(

i love taking it literally, like that college humor video where this guy calls and complains about the mario bros plumbing, that was classic..

i just imagine bowser being a gator coming out of the toilet... and the shrooms at the end telling him that his peach is in another castle.. just like that episode of south park with the kitty spraying drug thing..

ah good stuff :D
