Gamers Prefer Open World to Linear Narrative

Videogame Roundtable Episode 240: Third Time’s the Charm – If you’re wondering where the podcast has been, it’s been in technical hell. Twice the podcast was recorded each week, and both times there were serious technical issues. This time, we’ve got it right, and even have Paul dropping by to discuss his new book, “Gaymers: the Difference a ‘Y’ Makes: How (and Why) to Make Video Games LGBT Players Care About”. Actually, it’s mostly dominated by a discussion of an episode of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.

Otherwise, the news items include: Kojima end of Konami employment, French consumer advocate suing Valve over violating consumer rights and Ken Levine states gamers prefer open world to linear narrative
