If you're going to have a game that's almost entirely focused on the story, the story better be good. That's my take on it. It's basically like those interactive storybooks that came out in the 90's, they can be enjoyable for what they are.

I remember with this Minecraft Story Mode, one of the main characters is a literal pig. Eventually the pig is mortally wounded in some sort of heroic way, and when he finally dies, his body poofs into a literal floating pork chop. It was meant to be taken seriously as a dramatic sad moment. Then pork chop appears. This was not a well made story.
