WGTC writes: Storyline! Yeah, that’s an important part of videogames these days. It may be something that’s been lauded by gamers since the days of Zork, but only fairly recently has it become so in vogue. As a general rule, the cycle goes: experiences wanted by players from games of old > indie games do it > becomes cool > triple-A developers do it > becomes uncool, and around again. And it makes sense in a vague kind of way. Big budget development teams don’t want to waste money experimenting with something new if people won’t buy it. They’re a business after all. Let the bedroom devs take the plunge, they’ve got nothing to lose. If it works, then copy them.
