Comedy in Video Games

GamingLives newcomer, Adam S, looks into humour in video games and how it differs from other mediums.

"What video games have over films or books is the unity of sound, visuals, and movement, but if a player is focused too much on one of these elements, then any joke the developer has in mind falls apart. Compare this scenario with a comedy club – the comedian has crafted the pauses, and the rise and fall of their voice; this can’t be done with a video game without aeons of focus testing." (Culture, Deadpool, PC, Portal, PS3, Saints Row: The Third, South Park: The Stick of Truth, Xbox 360)
