Episodic Gaming A Reality?

Posted Thu, Apr 06, 2006 by Boomjack

Episodic gaming, season 2 is now available on DVD.
There is an excellent article at Guardian Unlimited that takes a well-rounded look at episodic gaming. Shane Dabiri of Blizzard Entertainment voiced his opinion on the subject.

"So, episodic gaming looks set to significantly shake up the games industry. But will it breed the never-ending game? Even though he is a key man behind the world's leading massively multiplayer online (MMO) game, Shane Dabiri isn't convinced: "Some massively multiplayer games have persisted for many years - many people are still playing StarCraft, a real-time strategy game we released in 1998. As for how long an episodic or regularly updated game could maintain an audience's interest, I suspect it's for as long as the game experience continues to provide value to the player.""
