DayZ and Player Driven Stories

“I like story-driven games.” You’ve probably heard this before, likely from someone gently caressing their PS1 copy of Final Fantasy VII. We often think of story-driven games as those where exceptional amounts of dialogue and cinematics drive the gameplay through an intricate plot. Poignant writing makes us laugh or cry – sometimes both. Emotional moments stab us in the heart, and we say, “Wow, this game has a great story.” These are stories crafted by a skilled writer on the development team. But what about games that don’t have a pre-written story? Are those any less driven by stories? Maybe all games have the potential story; only the storyteller changes." - Cameron Stark of Geekenstein.com (Culture, DayZ, PC)
