Wrapping up our six week discussion of storytelling, we decided to acknowledge a number of games that we felt were especially strong examples of storytelling. While the lists that each of us generated do not contain much overlap, the patterns that did emerge amongst these games are interesting. In other words, while the games aren't the same, what we seem to value about good storytelling in video games seems to have some similarity.
You can listen to the patterns emerge here (still working on getting these up on iTunes):
