thinking about this birdsite thread
and I had a different question, sorta related: what are the games (or other interactive experiences) in the past five years or so that are most opinionated about what a narrative even is, or how a narrative works?
@Alonealastalovedalongthe I'm using the word "narrative" in the narrow sense of narratology, sorta taking for granted (for the purposes of this discussion) that the structure of a narrative can be separated from the act of its telling (the whole fabula/sujet thing). I think another way of talking about what I'm looking for is games where the elements of abstract narrative structure are explicitly exposed as game mechanics (in interesting ways)
@aparrish thanks for clarifying, I was actually unaware of that vocabularly so this gives me good food for thought!
