The Story Question: Can Video Games Really Tell Good Stories?

Video games can tell stotries. This much is undeniable. But how much they should, and how well they can do so, are still up for debate. Game Informer recently published a quote from Twisted Metal and God of War creator David Jaffe. This seemingly anti-video game story quote raises the question of how good the medium is at storytelling. At the same time, the outrage among fans about the ending of the modern gaming era’s most ambitious story, the Mass Effect series, makes the question unavoidable: what is the current state of storytelling in video games?

I have to say, I have loved the build up for the release of ME3.  I’ve stayed away from anything story related and mostly anything about the game in terms of combat.  I’ve looked at the basics and I know the overall story since I’ve played the others.  Finally, this week my wait and blackout are over. (spoilers for ME1 and ME2 in this article)
