Learning by doing or through play has always been a successful method - today it's the same but in digital format and far more engaging - will it have better results than non digital story telling / teaching methods?

Katie Chase's curator insight, December 5, 2013 2:28 AM

Storytelling for games seems difficult because the original author has to come up with so many alternative endings. Whoever is playing the game hears and sees a story that is uniquely theirs. This type of interaction really does set gaming apart from other types of media, such as television and film. I believe this is what attracts people to games. –Aellise Czupryna

Ce dessin illustre la notion d'"expérience utilisateur" !

OomphMediaGarage's curator insight, June 23, 2013 7:03 PM

Gaming is a great way to experience a story in a variety of ways, often choosing the story you would like to experience based on a set of given boundaries. Kind of like a choose your own adventure book, but typically with better graphics. that is not to say, however, that gaming replaces books, performance art, theatre, etc. Convergence isn't replacement.
