Great article.

 

The player is now not a witness, he is not being guided through a story. He is now a part of it. It's not a case of watching a character. The player is the character, the character is an extension of the player in the same way a car is. The character therefore inherits all the personality traits of the player. This can create situations that detriment a linear story, - click and read more.

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 5:28 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

Brent Lang:  "If Ubisoft's latest campaign works out, Sam Fisher's mission will no longer be confined to game consoles.


But before the game maker could deploy the black-ops protagonist of its hit "Splinter Cell" videogames into other media platforms like novels, television and film, it needed the help of Starlight Runner Entertainment."

On Anita Sarkeesian, Sexism In Video Games, And Why We Need To Have The Conversation | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Erik Kain: "Blatant sexism and misogyny in gaming culture may be the work of a minority of gamers, but it’s still an important issue that deserves an open conversation. The ugly backlash to Anita Sarkeesian’s Tropes vs. Women Kickstarter project is an illustration why."

The Future of Video Game Storytelling

The Future of Video Game Storytelling | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

There is an old but still pertinent argument that storytelling in video games is the last great bastion for the medium to conquer. That game developers working in the 'mainstream space' have traditionally struggled to utilise video games as a storytelling medium, struggled to harmonise play and Hollywood-like narratives, and struggled to inject real meaning into their games without rendering the player a frustrated passive participant.

Machinima: How brands are making films within games

Machinima: How brands are making films within games | Machinimania | Scoop.it

"Creating movies from within computer games may sound like something best left to teenage boys, but the art of machinima, making animated films from within the real-time 3-D 'engine' of a video game, is proving anything but says Aaron Martin, Collective London's head of strategy" ...

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

Seeing the opportunity, EA commissioned Stoneman to create a piece of machinima that showcased the new downloadable content while paying homage to those "Only in Battlefield" moments.

The resulting short movie quickly became one of the most effective pieces of content EA has produced, generating more than 765,000 views and 25,000 likes without even as much as a sponsored post in media support. EA’s campaign for 'Battlefield 3' garnered them the top spot in the newly released Social Brands 100 for 2013.

Juan Carlos Burgon's curator insight, June 17, 2013 6:21 PM

I think in this times of life videogames are openning the doors for new types of filmaking by giving them chances to start producing about new topics and types of themes that are related to life and to actual information that would be great for editing and producing films, they would be magical, or of action, drama and they will have too many kind of brilliant acts to show
