The Best Video Game Stories of 2011 by Lost Link

Unlike one of my notorious accomplices b-rock, I try to dedicate my time to a single gaming experience before moving on to the next. I feel more immersed and focused on the game’s story and characters. That, or my memory won’t allow me to save multiple princesses at once.

Top 10 Best Lines in Video Game Narratives

kidding

Dialogue has been an integral part of human interaction since the beginning of all time. In stories, dialogue can reveal the nature of a character, progress the plot, and create understanding in the audience. If the script is good enough, a single character can dominate a role to the point where the script seems to disappear. The same is true in video game narratives.
