  2. @robfahey @GIBiz Enjoyed this. Having a vision about how to make things 'better' is one thing, fully delivering on them is another.

  3. @rhipratchett It’s frustrating to see Cage’s points being dismissed based on his own creative failures, but understandable all the same.

  4. @rhipratchett @robfahey Because literal, abstract action is at the core of what makes workable fun in games. That will never change.

  7. @naomialderman @rhipratchett @robfahey Actually I find the β€œgames can be everything yo” increasingly disingenuous. Essentially a sales line.

  10. @naomialderman @tiedtiger Zombie Run is never a game about story. Surely. I'm not even sure Walking Dead is about story

    @naomialderman @tiedtiger Surely story is part of the metagame. Like Achievements are. Or missions. Or Levels. Or score

  11. @nicholaslovell @tiedtiger Dude are you actually telling @naomialderman the writer of the actual game what her game is about seriously.

  12. @tiedtiger @naomialderman @newsmary But I don't believe any games are about story. I think story adds to games, but is not critical

  13. @nicholaslovell @tiedtiger @naomialderman You're wrong. I too write games that are about story. You can believe otherwise all you'd like :)

  14. @naomialderman @newsmary Ouch. Not particularly aimed at you. It's because I don't believe that story is the essence of a game. any game.
