This week on Extra Punctuation, Yahtzee dives into the choose-your-own-adventure video game genre and why games like The Quarry are not as innovative as developers think they are.

Extra Punctuation Transcript

During the slow release months I usually go to Nick the editor at the start of the week and go “Whaddaya got?” and he’ll throw out whatever review codes have come in that he thinks I might go for. Not too long ago he threw out As Dusk Falls, a new branching paths narrative game from Xbox Game Studios. And after one look at it, I felt a profound sadness. No, I do not want to play any more fucking glorified Choose Your Own Adventure Books. I already did The Quarry this year and I only did that so I could take the piss out of David Arquette’s horrible facial animation.
