What’s the Story? – The necessity of narrative in video games

Jason on TGC writes: I’ve noticed that when browsing through the comments sections of videogame sites and forums, there is a certain attitude that has become more noticeable among gamers. That attitude is about story; I am consistently seeing people demonstrating their belief that a modern game needs a good story, that without one it will lose something. It’s an opinion I can only agree with to an extent. (Culture, Industry)
