Once known for being crude and violent, some video games now feature sophisticated storylines and characters. Some players see a new literary tradition arising.

Clementine is a girl who is trying to survive a zombie apocalypse in a video game series based on the comic book and television franchise The Walking Dead. But for Michael Abbott, who teaches theatre at Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana, she is more than that.

"I would just be driving down the road in the car, and I'd be thinking about her," he said.

In this way Clementine resembles great figures from literature - she looms large in people's imagination, he said.


Movies and literature will be a thing of the past in the near future. The trend in video gaming is moving more and more towards interactive story-telling and open sandbox worlds - things that books and movies would never be able to achieve.

Hopefully reading a book won't become totally extinct.

Reading a book! That's so antiquated! Use a Kindle coffeetime.gif

Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.
