Don't we have this thread like every three or four weeks? :p

As I've said several times in the past, FS2.  The plot is significantly more complex and convoluted than the first game, and a greater percentage of missions seem to be tied directly to its advancement.  It provided the Shivans with a much greater aura of mystery and power, which has served so well in spurring on the modding community over the years.  Also, beam cannons. :yes:

Mongoose, you're thinking of the favorite quotes threads.  Or the favorite cutscene thread.  Or the favorite anything thread, really.

The topic definitely comes up far more frequently than that, even if it's not always in its own dedicated thread.  Thus Snail and Battuta's reactions in here. :p

 
Sushi won the thread :p

and after everything we've seen here maybe even more.
I know we're not the only ones, and we were not the first,
and unapologetically we'll stand behind each word."

Preemptive note to moderation: stating you cannot argue the key point in a storytelling medium is stupid.
Yes, but there are people who lack the ability to 'discuss' and degenerate into 'arguing' a little too quickly for anyone else to have their fair share of the former. :P

But, my $0.02, FS2. Mo'****er. That was all kinds of win to little Dilmah when he was 6-9.

The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community

The OP asked "Which do you prefer, and why". Not "Why is the story of FSx better than the story of FSy". The first inquiry is good. The second one is an invitation for a flamewar. Which this thread should not become.

It would've been FS1 if I'd played it first, but nothing'll beat the way my mind exploded when I played Freespace the first few times.

FS1 for story.
FS2 for execution.

Although both have been surpassed in overall quality by community content.



Pretty much what this guy said.

That said, I find it quite amusing that there are more posts that poke fun at the previously locked thread than those on topic.
