You wouldn’t put up with a bad story in a film – why expect anything less in a video game?
Video games aren’t just entertainment. They are vessels for great, engaging stories that deliver drama and characterisation like any other narrative medium.
The Problem With Story is a contribution towards connecting gamers with great stories. This site is dedicated to the reporting and critical analysis of story telling in video games, along with exploration of different narrative structures and contemplation on how the industry can grow.
As video games mature, they become more respected and sit alongside films and books as a story telling device. The Problem With Story is an attempt to get them there, faster.
