Immersive Games

March 14, 2010 10:34:24.202

The entire entertainment industry is shifting, with movies no longer being the biggest draw. Games are starting to be the biggest draw, and I think it's largely because they are becoming so immersive. Rather than two hours of staring at a story, you can now get many, many hours of becoming involved in a story.

Take two games I've been playing recently - Dragon Age: Origins Awakening and Fallout 3 . I played DAO a lot from Christmas (when I got it) until last week, after my third time through it. I've been playing Fallout 3 pretty continuously since. Unlike simple first person shooters, the story in these games is impacted by the things you do. While I liked Modern Warfare 2, I was pretty much done with it in a week. These games? Well, I just pre-ordered Dragon Age: Origins Awakening :)
