So I had this idea for a website I'd like to make, but I'm not sure if people would be interested in using it:
Basically it'd be a website set up to share and discuss, the storylines (plots) and connections between video games. Basically people could discuss and interpret the story of games, like the L4D series, games like the Resident Evil franchise, etc. Lots of games (especially Valve Games) have lots of information of the games stories open to interpretation so people could share their thoughts and connections between titles, etc. Another instance could be (for example the Postal Series). The overall story and plotline (in the overall franchise) could be shared, but then connections and plot holes between the games, could be shared and discussed and whatever.
I'm not sure how popular it would be, but I think it could be cool. I know I play most of the games I play for story lines but sometimes I'm forced to start with a sequel or mid way in the story and a place like this would also be useful to help catch players of game series up. It would be separated into forums based on game franchise, and game universes (example Half Life and Portal series take place in the same universe). I got the idea for the site, when thinking about the new L4D and Payday: The Heist crossover maps.
I know this isn't the biggest community, but it's one I like a lot, and I'd love to hear feedback from you guys. Would you use a site like this if I were to set it up?
Here's just a little list of game franchises (series) I love to discuss the story and plots of.
Megaman (there's so many different kinds but all connect and are in the same Universe)
Resident Evil (played 1-3, and part of 5. No idea how the games went from awesome zombies, to normal people who are 'infected' and axe you...)
Left 4 Dead (Now with the Payday universe connection. Also love discussing how story goes from one map to another. Ideas I've read are awesome)
Silent Hill (not sure if their are many connections besides sh1, and sh3 but would love to hear from others who know more then me)
