520    What really makes a video game story interactive? What's 
       the best way to create an interactive story? How much 
       control should players be given? Do they really want that 
       control in the first place? Do they even know what they 
       want-or are their stated desires at odds with the 
       unconscious preferences? All of these questions and more 
       are examined in this definitive book on interactive 
       storytelling for video games. You'll get detailed 
       descriptions of all major types of interactive stories, 
       case studies of popular games (including Bioshock, Fallout
       3, Final Fantasy XIII, Heavy Rain, and Metal Gear Solid), 
       and how players interact with them, and an in-depth 
       analysis of the results of a national survey on player 
       storytelling preferences in games. You'll get the expert 
       advice you need to generate compelling and original game 
       concepts and narratives. With Interactive Storytelling for
       Video Games, you'll: * Explore popular styles and genres 
       of games (RPGs, Online Games, First Person Shooters, and 
       more) * Learn to create effective, original concepts and 
       story lines with key components in mind: structure, 
       process, characters, player desire, and outcome * Learn 
       about what players want, what they expect, and how to 
       create truly compelling player-driven experiences * Get 
       access to an associated website with additional data on 
       storytelling preferences in games, valuable PowerPoint 
       lectures for professors for each -- of the book, and links
