Perceptive Podcast — Head-to-Head: Narrative vs. Design

Role-playing survival game is willing to take risks



This week, Ken and I decided to try something different and have an informal debate. Last week we had an heated discussion on gameplay vs. narrative in relation to Bioshock Infinite and my analysis and we wanted to expand on it.

Like in the analysis our conversation will go into some detail about Infinite’s game mechanics, but we did our best not to go into any plot spoilers for any of the games we talked about. If you would like us to have more of these in the future, feel free to leave us a comment below. I also apologize for the heavy breathing during the cast, one of the worse allergy seasons in years makes it a bit difficult to breath.
