☞ The importance of narrative in RPGs:

“It’s safe to say that the RPG has taken over every video game genre out there, but this domination shouldn’t surprise us. The RPG is founded on a handful of core principles, including the telling of a story and the growth of a character or group of characters. These principles pervade human desire — not just video games. Tracking a visual representation of progress satisfies our most fundamental needs, and the joys of following a story go back as far as storytelling itself.”
