Making Linear Story Telling Interesting in Video Games By Acknowledging the Fourth Wall

Player Effort: "Making gamers reflect on their experience with a video game by acknowledging the 4th wall by making the player an active participant in the narrative is a sure-fire way to make linear video games more compelling. Bringing in thought provoking questions and the ability to create a point in the game where the player goes through self-discovery is one of the ways this can be achieved." (BioShock, BioShock: Infinite, Culture, Spec Ops: The Line, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves)
