Gamasutra: While many in the games industry are weary of hearing prognostications of the "Citizen Kane of games", noted film director and certified geek Guillermo del Toro has thrown in his two cents regarding gaming's own tipping point.
Asked by Wired how interactive, nonlinear storytelling forms can possibly rise above the "geek ghetto", del Toro answered, "Go back a couple of decades to the birth of the graphic novel-I think we can pinpoint the big bang to Will Eisner's A Contract With God."
"Today, we have very worthy people doing literary comics. I think the same thing will happen on the Internet-gaming side. In the next 10 years, there will be an earthshaking Citizen Kane of games."
