Reasons why writers play video games

1. Creative story World

I have to admit the way the story world is built and designed in some video games are pretty impressive and captivating; which is one factor that drives players to increase the game’s ability to be explored. Every video game has to hold the quality that would tap into a player’s interest in exploring the setting, and a story world full of surprises. This happens the same way with how settings are reimagined by writers. The fictional dwellings is much like an empty canvass while the video games’ story world functions as the colors that expresses the setting’s vibrancy.

2. Feud-Driven Storylines

Conflict highlights and gives spark to the story’s main viewpoint which goes the same way as to how novels are written. In fact, it’s the conflict that draws players to beat every obstacle until they reach the winning goal. Similar story should be achieved in stories. Conflicts should be focused more to dig in the interest from readers as to how, and will the characters be able to beat every barrier.
