Jack Butler from hardreset.co.uk gives his opinion on the comments made by Jennifer Hepler about Stories and their place in video games.
I actually never heard about this interview, but after reading the article, I can't seem to muster the rage to feel bothered by her comments. Writers aren't testers or designers; their work doesn't involve control schemes or map layouts. Her work doesn't require experience in the medium, just in the genre. If she's a big fan of classical fantasy books and movies and has good writing skills, I'd say she's qualified to try writing on a Dragon Age video game. Of course, I'm assuming she worked on Dragon Age 1 and thus has proven herself capable on such an excellent title. If she was on Dragon Age 2, well...I guess maybe she should play more video games, lol.
