Have you ever watched a film or read a novel, wishing that you could change the narrative to save your favorite character? Game designer David Cage allows you do just that in his video games, where players make decisions that shape an ever-changing plot. In a talk and live demo, Cage presents a scene from his new project, letting the audience control a character’s decisions. “Interactive storytelling can be what cinema was in the 20th century: an art that deeply changes its time,” Cage says.

Idno seems like going down a predefined rigid path is not exactly telling the players story. Try something with emergent stories like .e.g rimworld, dwarf fortress, minecraft etc.
This is the guy who described Detroit: Become Human as being like Blade Runner, except the humans are the bad guys, and everyone immediately asked if ever watched the movie………. TED, you f*cked up
Did Ted actually do their homework for this one? This guy is notorious for being one of the worst writers in the gaming industry.
The presenter, Cage, laments the idea of the writer having total control over what happens to the protagonist. The game, Detroit: Become Human, presents you with hundreds of different choices that effect how the story progresses. And yet, the consequences of your decisions are still entirely pre-written and programmed into the game. So in the end: NO, you do not have as much freedom as you think. Even though Cage's games certainly do more than most other "choice-driven" games, much of what is discussed in the talk is hyperbole.
–>IT'S ALSO AN AD<–
Sid Mier Civ author said "games are a set of interesting choices."
5:18 did they not say 'name'
Hi, I'm Conner, the Android send by cyberlife
28 STAB WOUNDS !
I fuckin’ love David Cage. Say what you want about him, but I am blown away by the magnitude of his creative accomplishments
My fav game is omikron by quantum dream
He's one of the worst game developers in the world.
This game makes me cry
David Cage love ❤️
How come the worst game designer and storyteller in recent history gets a ted talk?
Hopefully he mentions the 28 stab wounds…
I bet they have huge data about humans behavior from this game
litrally a comercial this is shameless
i like how we all came for connor
I would love to see one of those 4-5000 page scripts <3
Hey your whole game is just a cutscene
Hello, Can anybody recommend a tutorial for me, where I can learn how to model for video games like the one shown on this video using Blender
Fascinated with the idea of choices, but not consequences. What good are choices when they all lead to the same outcome?
The problem with this is that every permutation that involves decision making is still curated by the developer of the game.
Desicion is an illusion in David Cage games. Yes he tells stories, but he is not a good storyteller like Hideo Kojima or Cory Barlog. He is more like Tommy Wiseau.
Games where you only choose options shouldn't be considered games in my opinion.
The problem is that story telling in games is usually so bad.
Ethan Mars, a forgotten hero… 🙁
Ngl your games are disgusting like wtf you were you thinking?
this man made the best games
Story tellers? I prefer to be a story maker.
Thanks to David Cage and especially Fahrenheit and Heavy Rain. Games that subtly change the Way of Thinking. Art that is able to return faith in humanity.
I needed 16 years to understand.
Sure, taking the easy way out and letting the one who's supposed to be invested in YOUR story play with the strings. That's what storytelling has always been about
How is this a Ted-talk. It’s literally just a marketing campaign.
He just used a Ted talk to promote his game…what a chad lmao
Some of ya'll really be praising a pervert (made a nude model of Elliot Page without his consent or knowledge) and a homophobe ("We don't make games for f*gs" – David Cage). I wouldn't be surprised if David was also a transphobe too.
Out of all the funny s* he produced over the years, him talking about his revolutionary storytelling on a ted talk, was by far the funniest.
David Cage, you've done it again!
