On my design blog at http://www.armpitgames.com
, I have posted a counterpoint to this article : http://www.costik.com/gamnstry.html
where the author states that any attempt to combine story with game is doomed to produce a crappy story and/or a crappy game.
I think hes missing the point of playing story games.
Its an old article. I wonder if he still feels the same way?
