I'll agree to disagree with you there. Vaas is the only decent character. The others (especially you posse of friends that you were holidaying with) are beyond one dimensional.
It takes a bit of a bad turn with the mumbo jumbo shit as I stated a couple pages ago, but in terms of actor performance and against peers it still fares a lot better than glorified framing devices such as Skyrim, Sleeping Dogs, The Sabateur, and countless others which simply seem to include a narrative premise as a bare-bones justification for the setting.
Ha, the story in this is absolute piss, doesn't stop it being my potential GotY though.
Compared to most games it's well written and performed.
The guy who plays Vaas gives an excellent performance.
The story is very well acted, choreographed and altogether hangs together incredibly well.
The last time I was drawn in this much was The Walking Dead, although FC3 doesn't have the same level of emotional attachment. Having said that, I really can't wait to put a fucking arrow through that twats face....
