The Powerful Use Of Words Within Games
Words are powerful – no doubt will ever be uttered from my trap to prove otherwise.
Words may lead to undeniable satisfaction or severe heartache; like any indisputable flip side of every coin in our lives.
Not everyone on this Earth will take note or feel that games are capable of provoking strong feelings within us or even capable of telling a truly prodigious tale.
Thus my quest to prove the world wrong on this via the over-saturated means of communication that is the world wide web continues and in result have the same effect of hawking into an industriously flowing river. Nevertheless, I shall proceed with my ramblings.
I have had the splendid opportunity to steal a personal computer that luckily had Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs already neatly taking a nap on its hard drive. I knew this game would need to be played by my personal self. It has an atmosphere so dense and a truly riveting story, but what really surprised me was the use of language within the game.
All the scribbled thoughts of our protagonist and notes picked up along the way was written in a high quality English language that one doesn’t have the honour of gazing upon often nowadays. The dialogue itself taught me a few ways of expressing myself or even when writing my various speculations about the increasing of price of fossil fuels. (Expressing myself like this may lead to my teeth being discouraged from my flapping chatterbox if the person is to believe I’m either trying to be a presumptuous simpleton or of a questionable sexuality. Neither of those would be the case.)
Various games out there have tremendous writing contained within – whether it be dialogue, storyline or both; it is without a doubt something to be found within the gaming medium that may prove to be genuinely enticing.
I’m able to go full-on fanboy over some games with remarkable writing and stories to be found amongst the game titles in the dust-ridden landscape that is the gaming industry, but I’d rather ask you, dear readers, to tell me all about your favourite well-written games?
You know you want to.
