Storytelling: The Importance of Wonder

MWEB Gamezone writer Zubayr Bhyat explores one of the key aspects ignored by many game developers that could've brought many a game into brilliance: Storytelling

The story is too old to be commented.

Such a lovely article! I agree entirely. Although as I said yesterday, I went into games like COD thinking "I'm here to kill things" and then ended up weeping a bit as the story unfolded because I am lame xD

I find it amazing so many developers don't invest more into good storytelling. So many good stories invest into our imagination and inspire.

Great read, games like Dear Esther and To the Moon filled me with wonder. Storytelling is a vital aspect of player immersion for me, more so than good graphics and action.

I have to get Thomas Was Alone, heard the storytelling in that is amazing and it's all about shapes, lol.

Dude, that game is also on my list

With all the flashy graphics nowadays, its seems that a lot of developers forget storyline and its so important. Nice article. I hope more devs read it to remind themselves of paying attention to this part of a game. I want to be entertained and immersed in a game, not just drool over the pretty graphics, which normally lasts 5 minutes.

@TongkatAli - Must check that out. Enjoyed Wall-E so may look at that.

Speaking of which, Wall-E was another great piece of storytelling done brilliantly.
