Dansky on Game Writing

Over on Storytellers Unplugged, my pal Rich Dansky recently posted “Young Industry My Sweet Patootie, You Goldurn Whippersnappers.” It’s an excellent essay on the challenges of writing for video games and why it continues to be hard to do well even after decades of such games on the market. The excuse, of course, is that video games are a relatively young medium—which is true, when compared to things like books—but Rich chews right through that chestnut to get to the truth beneath.
