Session Name:

Five Reasons Players Hate Your Game Story And Five Tips To Fix That (Presented by Genvid Entertainment)


There are five key mistakes creators make that drive players and viewers away or at least send them to the resetera, Discord and reddit to ridicule an unsuccessful story in an otherwise great experience. The session will evaluate and discuss these five key mistakes that compel players to hate a story, then look at five tips to address these problems. The practice of storytelling in games, game-adjacent content, and adaptations are all evolving, creating new opportunities for narrative development and expansion. By tuning your narrative, players and viewers will fall in love with your narrative, instead of driving them away with storytelling that doesn't match expectations.
