Storytelling in Videogames

This week, in celebration of E3, we’re going to depart from film and TV to celebrate the storytelling in video games. E3, for those that don’t know, is the Electronic Entertainment Expo. It’s the largest video game convention, which is held annually here in Los Angeles at the LA Convention Center. Video games are a major passion of mine, and the storytelling in them has evolved to the point where I believe they can compete with film and TV. In fact, one of the greatest things about the storytelling in games is that in some games you can create a story of your own, and make decisions that will take you down a different path than others that play. Whether you play games or not, this post should fascinate you in seeing how far storytelling has come in video games over the past 30 years. For a perfect example of how far gaming has come watch the trailer below for “The Last of Us Part II.”

Pretty amazing, right?! Well, if there’s any indication games and the storytelling in them will only get better and better. There’s still a long way to go, and the experiences created are already truly one of a kind. For a full look at how the storytelling in games has changed over the years, watch the video below:

        I won’t spoil anything for you, but I’ll point out that they tried to make the entire game a one-shot, from beginning to end. Almost unnoticeable, but it makes a giant experience in how immersive the game feels!
