Deus Ex: Human Revolution writer Mary De Marle says that she thinks videogames have the potential to surpass film in the storytelling ranks.
I dont doubt that one bit. The main reason being the different lengths of each medium. Films are viewed in one go of 1-3 hours. Games can be played for many hours over many different period of times, meaning more story can be told. Video Game stories can be equivalent to that of books, as more of it can be told than opposed to film.
