Where is story telling going?

With all this talk of new ways to tell stories where is the current world of telling stories going? I think that in the future everything will be told in the very least in an interactive way. People want to be more involved with whats happening on screen and I think its time everyone started noticing. Everyone will be talking about oh what did you decide to do at this point and this point and oh how did it end for you instead of oh did you watch last nights episode? Everything will change no more boring break time discussions everyone will be talking about something different and everyone will have a different experience. With things like Snapchat, Vine and Instagram the possibilities are endless. I wouldn’t be surprised if in the near future most major shows started implementing digital story telling techniques into there very shows. It would certainly change up the dynamic that everyone is so used to. Well enough of my strange thoughts I’ll be sitting here waiting for the digital revolution of Tv to come were I get to watch old TV purists fight the new wave of TV watchers that want to change the old format. Soon Television wont even be a thing and everything will be on the internet I think. Until then I’ll just be sitting here watching Game of Thrones. Have a goodnight.

For those of you that don’t know I am largely obsessed with the Witcher series. One of the best parts about being a part of a community so large is that there is a wiki set up.┬áThis wiki has everything you will ever want to know about the story of the Witcher. Since the world of the Witcher is so massive it helps to have a website completely dedicated to the documenting the world. Lately I’ve been getting back into playing the game. For those who don’t know the game is build upon story choices that you yourself get to choose. The game as 8 possible different endings based on the choices you make throughout the game. This is one of the reasons the game is so great because you have so much influence over the world with the choices you make. The fact deciding to save someone in this game will have effects in the next game puts so much pressure on you to try and make the right choice. Another great part of the Witcher story is that the charcters are real and actually make you feel emotion while playing through the game. Every character is different and thats one thing that’s great about the series.
