From the hiring kit:
Modern video games are often praised for their fantastic visual effects and heart-pounding action, but the real driver for much of the gameplay is the narrative that supports all that eye candy. Without an engaging story, compelling dialog and a narrative leading players in the right direction, many games would fail to maintain the required level of immersion necessary for success.
This is why the importance of the video game writer cannot be overstated. Depending on the game in development, poor writing could render a game practically unplayable and, more importantly, potentially destroy a game developer’s reputation in the market. Character backstories, the quests in a role-playing game and an overarching story that drives an MMO franchise over several expansions all play a vital role in a game’s success. Writers and their ability to tell a compelling story are what motivate players to keep playing.
