The Maturity of a Medium

Ben Fox writes "We subconsciously bind cutting edge gaming to its own context. Recent games, as far as narrative and thought-provocation are concerned, impress by the medium’s own standards but fail to grasp the lofty heights of film, or even television in this regard.

The industry at large is simply not a mature one." (Culture, Heavy Rain , Industry, Journey, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Red Dead Redemption)
