The Games Hollywood Plays

I love a good, linear narrative as much as the next person who earns their living critiquing linear narratives, but even I must admit that compared to the worlds created by the best games, the more conventional storytelling forms of film and TV are looking a little . . . played. I hope there will always be a place for narrative as we've known it, but the generations yet unborn may one day look back at the movies we've grown up loving and wonder how we used to stand these stories where you had no say in what happened and were stuck looking at whatever some director felt like showing you. Perhaps for them, a movie like Raiders of the Lost Arkwill be as endearingly quaint as W.K.L. Dickson's Edison Kinetoscopic Record of a Sneeze.
