DETERMINING FACTORS, DESIRABLE PERSONALITY TRAITS AND SKILLSETS
Perhaps more than most other jobs currently available in the video game industry, the role of a game or quest writer is less technical and programmatic. The writer’s role is to create engaging narratives that fit into the foundational framework of the project under development. These stories, whether they are the overarching narrative of the game or specific quest stories within the larger story, must transform the player. It must take them to that virtual world and immerse and invest them in the outcome. Achieving this goal requires extraordinary writing skills.
