Electronic Farmyard: The Importance Of Storytelling In Video Games

The Electronic Farmyard writes:

'Welcome to the 16th edition of Narratively Minded, this week I’m going to be stepping away from my usual topic of Television by taking a look at storytelling in the video games industry. I’ll be talking about why a strong well-integrated story can enhance the user experience and how while some developers are really embracing this aspect others continue to treat solid narrative as optional.' (Culture, Dev, Industry, Max Payne, Max Payne 2, The Orange Box)
