drewkarpyshynStewart Smith interviewed author and game writer Drew Karpyshyn for Tyler Paper. The write up covers Drew’s take on how writing in video games has improved and how it connects with the audience.

“I think once we get better at that, realizing the connections that the players feel, we’ll get better at finding ways to draw on that, to utilize that, to give you those intense but personal moments that will help you connect with the game. That is video games’ biggest advantage over, say, film or a book. Because of the interactivity you’re never going to have the depth or complexity, it’s very difficult to have that because you never know what players are going to do exactly. But the trade-off is, even though games may be lacking a bit of that, the impact of what’s happening is so much stronger.” -Drew Karpyshyn
