Video Games Don't Do Characterization

"Video games have their own emotional vocabulary, their own language. Maybe they just don't do character." A look at characterization in videogames by Writer Austin Grossman who has lent his talents to over a dozen games, including System Shock, Deus Ex and Tomb Raider: Legend.

The story is too old to be commented.

he needs to get into different genre of games and a lot of games have very good characters and emotion.

I've wondered this before, because some times it seems that something in a game makes sense but only if something else was left out. Like they started and added something and never revised their story.

Its because, till now the technology wasn't there in all genres to create believable emotive characters, that is finally changing..although we have not seen it quite yet, we will soon. The pic for Heavy Rain proves my point will prolly be one of the first games to really do these things (hopefully in a believable manner).
