While critics loved the gameplay and gorgeous visuals of Ubisoft's island-bound shooter, the general sentiment was that the story of Far Cry 3 left a bit to be desired.
However, the game's writer, Jeffrey Yohalem, told Penny Arcade Report that the game's plot has plenty of depth that he fears most of the gaming public overlooked. The way the island natives were presented in the game was designed with the intention of providing commentary on how cultures are perceived.
Yohalem also discussed his frustrations with storytelling in games today, saying that writers are not giving their audience enough credit.
