"Video games are slowly evolving into a creditable media for storytelling. One might not see it amongst the wave upon wave of space marines or soldier types, and to find a game that doesn’t have a muscle glad hero or a busty two-dimensional heroine is becoming increasingly uncommon, but that is merely an unfair stereotype. Not every character has links to the classic view that each protagonist needs to be anatomically perfect. Recent efforts have bridged the gap between games and more traditional media; most notably Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and the complex relationship between the couple forced together by circumstance and forced to wander around a ruined New York wasteland. One could be forgiven for thinking that this was a recent development, but as any geek will tell you, our narrative journey starts way back in the 90s."
