Recently on this site, one of my colleagues wrote an article pointing out the rather massive story deficiencies in Infinity Ward's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. This wasn't an attack on the game itself, but more the idea that the game is trying so hard to invest the player in the store when the story is so structurally unsound. While this often isn't a problem, if the game plays well enough... but there's always that moment when a bad plot development kicks the gamer square in the head.
Bad video game writing has been with us since the medium's inception, and will likely always be with us, but sometimes, a game features a bad plot turn so heinous, so irritating, so "Were-they-even-paying-attention"-ny, They must be pointed out. For if not, we'll forever be... Trapped... in the Plot Hole.
