Nathan Schultz's curator insight, November 25, 2015 8:02 PM

This article offers insight on the challenges-and strengths-of video games as a narrative medium.  On the one hand, critics have argued that, compared to the plots seen in films or books, video game stories tend to follow a very simple pattern of "kill the dragon, save the princess."

 

While this may be true, video games stregth as a storytelling medium is that it can more fully integrate aspects of the environment into the story.  A book can only describe a fight between to characters.  A video game allows players to live that fight first hand.
