Being a great digital storyteller himself, Wesley Fryer highlighted this excellent video lecture series as a gem about gaming and storytelling recently. It’s really fun and inspiring.
Daniel Floyd’s ten minute YouTube video, “Video Games and Storytelling,” is a video lecture you won’t soon forget. Reminiscent of “RSA Animate – Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us,” about Dan Pink’s book “Drive,” this video by Daniel Floyd is the most intense, “rapid-fire” visual presentation of related images I’ve seen in a video lecture to date. Several clever visual quips in here, but you certainly have to pay close attention! The content is outstanding also… as a digital storyteller and a storychaser, I’m quite interested in the confluence between storytelling and gaming.
The whole series(now called Extra Credits) about video games is here : http://penny-arcade.com/patv/show/extra-credits. This is a comprehensive series about video games, every week it took a deeper look at games; how they are made, what they mean and how we can make them better. Daniel is a great storyteller with humor.
