P.O.V. of a new wave.AbstractIn this project, in the lense of different emblematic games, I will analyse narration in the video game medium with a dedicated focus on independent productions.
The game community wrongly imported narratological criteria from traditional narration without questioning their relevance, but evaluating video-games with criteria used for movies or literature is not necessarily pertinent.
The narrative/mechanic divide raised by video game pundits is not pertinent because narration has many forms.
