A Brief Look At Narrative In Gaming

jumptogamer:

Several weeks ago, my mother caught a glimpse of me playing Final Fantasy X; a now twelve year old game. She caught me during a cinematic and asked if it was a movie or a game. The legitimate confusion in the inflection of her voice genuinely worried me as she went on to add about how boring it was. This lead to a realization that in spite of how long it has been since the release of such a narrative driven, albeit poorly executed, experience there still exists this massive misconception among non-gamers about what video games can be. (BioShock, Final Fantasy X, Industry, Mass Effect, Metal Gear Solid 2 HD, Silent Hill 2)

Well no wonder she thought it was boring. You were playing FFX, that game is awesome when your playing it, but when you watch it, it's kind of a drag.
