Featured this one. I'll PM JJJ about rewarding you and Ugi with points.
Yep! If you think a comment deserves to be featured, post in this thread. For the most part JJJ will handle this sort of stuff, but any of the mods can feature comments.
I've just started playing through all of the storygames on the site again (in order to make up for a 4-5 year period of hardly playing anything!) so I figured I'd check on this thread.
Ah, okay. Cool. I was actually about to ask how to get comments featured, but then I saw this and that saved me from making myself look dumb for asking about something already addressed. :) I'll have to keep my eye out for good comments. (And also cross my fingers that any of my comments will be seen as helpful! After all, gold stars are purdy!)
Well, many storygames still don't have any comments featured due to there being so many of them (hence this thread). I'm planning on going through and featuring comments as I read through storygames (I obviously don't get points for this), so if I see any of your comments and they're good enough they'll be featured! If you want to jump the queue a bit you can always nominate your own comments in this thread if you think they're good enough.
That would be too hard for me to do. I have self-esteem issues. It would seem too arrogant of me to promote myself like that.
This is from Katju Domination: Episode 1- Godzilla
The mechanics of it where static, which is bad for fighting stories more so than others. The plot was hair thin. Static fighting is only okay if the telling of the story is more important than the fight itself. You have no story whatsoever so I have to compare this to a poorly executed fighting style game. Give the readers to want to be the best, and reward them properly when they do. I felt no drive to better myself, or a plot to carry me along. I gave you points for effort though.

This comment's not bad but I'm not sure what "Give the readers to want to be the best" means. Unfortunately, if a sentence doesn't make sense in the comment, I usually can't feature it.
Here’s 3 Comments from the Kill Aman’s Mustache Game for feature consideration :)
This game is the greatest random game in history. Nearly every joke can be found in the forums (except the pulp fiction ones, and a few select jokes that evolved from PM between each other), and every one has it's purpose.
Kill Aman's Mustache is a glorious joke, portraying a man's fierce melancholy from not having a glorious mustache, and wishing to destroy it. Oh, YOU (the player) may of come up with excuses, but we all know the truth. My mustache is glorious, and everyone is so blatantly jealous of it. Heck a game was made about how much BZ (BerkaZerka) wishes he had my mustache, and in desperation had to kill it. But I digress, let me return to discussing the game.
As I mentioned before, this game is the greatest random game on this site. The jokes are hilarious, and the mustaches that are shown in certain items are amaizing. Each scene has a plethora of humorous lines, and whenever you see Briar_Rose or my minions, I would suggest to press the back button. It's dangerous to see them, and you might get an early ending.
However, I have some complaints. In this game, it is possible to kill my mustache, which is complete nonesense. This game can be random, but I refuse to believe that it can be so illogical. It's crazy to think that I could be defeated. But, I understand BZ's frustration and thus I accept his game with an 8/8.
As a last note, please understand that my mustache is amaizing, and that if you do succeed, I expect to see your dedication to the mustache. My mustache is glorious, and it is truly a godly 'stache. The 'stache is forever, and it is great.
If you play this game, be warned. The mustache is eternal, and this game is incredibly difficult. Don't think you can defeat me without trying. You will fail often.

Clever and fun. I particularly like how you incorporate certain links to move the story forward in ways they wouldn't normally be used. Nice use of multimedia. I have a feeling I missed some secrets as I was left with a few items I didn't use. I wish I could revisit rooms, but that may very well be the point.

Here’s some submissions for my Chuck Norris Quiz Game:
I'm not really a fan of quiz games, but as far as quiz games go, this is definitely one of the best!

Quiz was amusing, and you put a good deal of effort into the ending.
I gave it a 6, because it needed more chuck norris.

Here’s 3 for my King’s Logic Game.
Loved it! Took me a couple of goes to work out the logic behind it, but I had fun figuring it out. Really fun puzzle ^_^

Very fun game. You're going to need a lot of logic and some luck to get it right.

I love it! It would be much better if it were part of a larger story. If you could build an entire story with miny games like these it would be fantastic.

I found the top five comments for Love SICK.
First impressions: dick in ass....For anyone who likes to drill his own ass with his own dick, this is TheBeST story. It gave me some ideas on killing., anyway. A better way to rape someone is to poke out her eyes and skull fuck her, hahahah. Endmaster, seriously. Do you even have a relation with any female human? How come are you here writing for kiddies? You should be out their killing motherfuckers right now!! Bitch out. This story entertains like gangbang, and while it's fucking short you(the random asshole reading this) shouldn't consider it bad. L=Q. God pick me up!!? Hell, am i even alive. Is this story even real or is it just a pick of my imagination. Why should i believe that you aren't a tenticlatic alien, who fucks 100 whores a day? Are you even human? Review score:8/8.
Dude... I always thought I was fucked in the head and no one could ever match my level of insanity. You not only disproved that idea, you strangled it and fucked it in the ass with your dick wrapped in barbwire. Well played EndMaster. Well played.
I think I'm gonna throw up. You are one sick puppy. I love reading your stories, but please don't move into my neighborhood.
WTF I'm a Mormon retard. Usualy I like your stories but this one is all crazy and screwed up. I'm a little worried about your mental health...
You know, it wasn't really necessary to say "I'm a Mormon retard." The retard part was obvious when you said you were a Mormon. Lol.
Ummm, on second thought maybe you shouldn't feature these. Ha ha.
If there was a category for Sarcastic Featured Comments, I’d shamelessly nominate this one:
This throbbing tale of robust dramatic timing was like a cascading explosion of literary ecstasy in my mind. Saturating the deepest recesses of the psyche in white hot creativity! It changed my life forever!
-- BerkaZerka on 12/23/2012 6:01:31 PM
Of course it was a totally sarcastic comment (in response to an overinflated game) and should NEVER be featured

I enjoyed this very much! I guess its because i know how much scripting went into this, the game is really good in terms of scripting features and its a creative idea! I'm going to play it again ;)

very well written. I expect alot of great things in the next one. Also going from hero to zero is something i didn't see for this series. Well done skills.

Thanks for the suggestion! I've featured Briar_Rose's comment along with mahuesz's and my own.
Don't forget the 2 points haha ;)
Folks who get a Comment Featured get 2 XP (as well as the person that suggests the Comment) ^-^
Yep! I don't have the power to award points to members so whenever I feature comments I send a PM to JJJ detailing which comments I've featured (and if someone suggested the comment then that user's name too). Your points should show up next time JJJ reads his PMs.
No problem, That's cool that you can set Featured Comments though :)
Wow I thought we had stopped doing this. I still remember going through game after game and trying to find decent comments.
Never knew about this, welp.. You learn something new everyday.
Thought I would ask about this one on my game Rising Flames from Silver as I think its a pretty good comment and seems balanced:
Ok, I don't want to blow my own horn here, but... I'm totally blowing my own horn. Basically, I wrote this comment for Jack and Jill Live On:
Just a heads up, I only feature comments on storygames that I have read (which is why some of the above suggestions have no reply by me). Having said that, the next storygames I will be reading are the ones with featured comment suggestions, so chances are I'll get to the ones here pretty soon.
Been reading stories on this site for awhile but this is my first comment left. At first I didn't think too much of this when on my first playthrough I got an ending and two people had died because I went home but after another crack at it I have to say this is a very expansive and challenging read and I find it hard to believe it's your first storygame. Into my 3rd attempt at actually beating this after finding out there was an item I needed that I'd missed way back in the beginning and looking forward to finally finding the "winning" ending (assuming there is one lol)
-- Psychotic Dragon on 5/27/2013 7:10:25 PM
I like this comment because I think that my story will be viewed like this quite a bit, that it (deceptively) doesn't look like much at first. It's my first try, too, so some people may expect a flop. I actually grew to despise the first page for a while because I just could not seem to find a good way to kick-start this adventure.
It's not a bad intro, it's kinda funny (to me, anyway, and my friends got a few chuckles out of it,) and it explains your character's initial mood, what kind of day they're having, what their normal problems look like, so on. So, it gets the ball rolling, just not very fast. Once you get a little deeper into the story, though, the world is... well, as he said, "expansive." It's also more complex than you may expect from a horror story because it's got puzzles and riddles and item combinations that... some people found pretty odd, but so far, odd in a good way.
(I guess the bug must of been a site error. Odd.)
Anyways, this game was fantastic. It had an odd way of going about things, and it allows for a large amount of freedom for the user (though it has a very specific path in order to get the best ending). The descriptions for the pages were correctly done, in certain cases incredibley grotesque, in certain cases simply creepy, and, oddly enough, quite amusing when intended. Definatley one of the better horror games on the site.
-- Aman on 5/27/2013 6:19:34 PM
I like this comment because... well, yeah, I'll best honest: it's quite flattering. However, more importantly, it sums up what I was trying to do with my story. Grotesque, creepy, odd, but funny. Giving you freedom, but still challenging you to make an extra effort for a bigger reward...so, yeah, it fits.
Comments for http://chooseyourstory.com/story/a-game-of-life-and-death I presume?
xD Ah... I guess I forgot to mention that part. Yes. It -is- my only storygame. I mainly wanted to show my appreciation for the feedback.
Here are the best for this storygame.
Well it started off kind of funny but then it just went... I don't know what the hell was going on. Personally, if you're going to write a game about the Simpsons, I don't think you should randomly include characters from other shows. I had no idea who any of them were.
-- Briar_Rose on 1/17/2013 7:21:36 AM
Eh, this didn't do it for me. It could've been good, but the story was scattered and wasn't really coherent. You automatically assume people know which characters you're talking about (we don't), and anyone who doesn't know the Simpsons is gunna be S.O.L. Surely Outta Luck. 4/8 for the effort, but next time put some thought into your story, please. I've read one way stories that were fantastic. This wasn't.
There wasn't any game- it was just click through pages of Simpsons pictures. Why was Dale from King of the Hill in the Simpsons' car at Lion Safari? It's a neat idea, but very poorly written.
