Fantasy and video games go together like peanut butter and chocolate. It’s a tried-and-true combination, and we gamers keep coming back for more. As much as we¬†like prancing around as elves with arcane and mystical powers, I think we can agree to the fact that the medium has the capacity to expand, to tell real, meaningful stories.

Games like Emily is Away and Depression Quest have proved that the vicissitude, disappointment and heartbreak of everyday life are themes an interactive medium can explore — and explore successfully!
