The Importance of Pacing

Pacing is an important aspect of any game, from both a story and a gameplay perspective. A game with poor pacing introduces characters or situations and then refuses to develop them properly (Final Fantasy 13), has a plot that drags on for too long (Dragon’s Dogma), or flashes action and plot at inappropriate times (Unreal Tournament 3). A game that is paced well gives you enough time and detail to understand and fully comprehend the plot and characters, but doesn’t linger. (Bulletstorm, Deus Ex GOTY, Dev, Grand Theft Auto IV, The Witcher 2: Assassins Of Kings)
