“We need to realize that we tell traditional stories very badly […] there are very few game stories that would get published in your average fiction magazine, and it’s not because we have bad writers. We enable other people’s stories, and that is so powerful and fresh that if we nail it… the sky’s the limit.” - EA’s Alex Hutchinson
