From Interaction to Impact: 3 Games That Engage Players in 3 Different Ways
This article speaks mainly on how games impact players to respond in a certain way. It really touches on how games are not just a story that you can read or watch, but games can tell a story that the players actively participates in. This creates a deeper interaction and can potentially influence and impact players more than other types of storytelling.
“Gaming, on the other hand, is interactive; it’s a two-way street in which players have agency, or control, in the story.”
I think this is a great statement from the article as it relates to my research. I don’t think that this two way street necessarily needs to be on the basis of a story. Sometimes, the deepest interactions you can get in a game have nothing to do with a story that you are following, but with other people who are playing the game with you. I definitely think gaming is a two way street where players influence their own experience in the game.
