Robin Burks:  "Throughout the history of video games, some developers have used games as a way to tell a story. Now even AAA titles such as 'Until Dawn' embrace games as storytelling devices."

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, September 22, 2015 11:23 AM

This isn't a new concept, of course, but with the big push Sony gave for Until Dawn, it's an example of a growing trend of how developers embrace video games as mediums for telling stories.

Nathan Schultz's curator insight, November 25, 2015 7:55 PM

The recent video game, Until Dawn, offers players the ability to choose the course of the game's narrative by giving the gamer the power to decide each character's actions.  In one scene, two teenagers are tied to a chair, with sharp spinning blades descending on their heads, and the choice of whether one-or both-of the teenagers dies is left entirely to the viewer.  

 

This idea is fascination because it explores the notion that gamers should serve as the "director" deciding the fate of the characters on screen, which ties back in with the concept that modern audiences want stories to be subject to their will.

Emanuel Maiberg:  "Videogames and sports are kissing cousins and are part of the same family of life known as play."

My first game that I felt fit Jane McGonigal's description of 'epic' was TV Sports Football.  I really did not love football at the time.  The the TV style 'reeled' me in. Pun intended :)

Walker Fuller's curator insight, December 12, 2013 9:16 PM

'Hawken': From indie computer game to transmedia powerhouse | 3D animation transmedia | Scoop.it

Brian Crecente: "Hawken: A year and a half ago no one, beyond the team of nine working on the game, had ever heard the name. But by the end of this year, if all goes to plan, Hawken the game will launch in the eye of a transmedia storm that includes a video web series, a graphic novel, feature film and plans for an animated television show, action figures, a novel and perhaps, one day, lunch boxes."

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
