Are Games the Place for Great Stories?

Leave a comment

Over at Rock, Paper, Shotgun, John Walker debates himself on whether games just aren’t a great environment great for telling really great stories, or whether games are the ideal environment for a new form of narrative we’re just developing.  It’s brilliantly designed to drive pageviews – my compliments to the chef on rousing that kind of ire in one’s own readers – but solidly done: excellent points on both sides of the argument, and, taken together, a pretty balanced view of both the opportunities and challenges of interactive narrative mediums.
