Electronic Arts' TJ Galda closed out the D.I.C.E. 2012 presentation with a presentation on the future of storytelling in games. While many gamers and developers strive to combine the artistry of movies and the interactivity of games, Galda said that has already been achieved with titles like EA's own Fight Night Champion. Galda then proposed that developers take cues from the world of television and pursue episodic content. While he acknowledged that some companies have tried this unsuccessfully in the past, Galda said the problems they encountered could be overcome with a little planning.
