I like the Commander Keen mods that have stories. When it gets right down to it, it's a matter of jumping from here to there until you reach the exit. A story adds richness, or should I say, gold. Goldness?

I like the mods that have no story. Those ones that are focused entirely on the platforming and puzzling. Story or not, it's the challenge that matters.

I like mods that hint at a larger unspoken story. Spooky, mysterious... What's going on here? Corridors and secret treasures. Abandoned ruins. What happened? One can only guess, and the beauty of it is that no one will ever know the answer.

I like mods.

Do you mean a story which is different to the original version of the game?

I think a sequel shouldn't go under a different name to avoid confusion.
