The second was LucasArts, with games such as 18 RPGS, ADVENTURE GAMES, AND THE GROWING IMPORTANCE OF STORIES The Secret of Monkey Island, Sam & Max Hit the Road, and Day of the Tentacle.

However, what really sets THE WORLD ENDS WITH YOU apart is the way it merges together its gameplay, graphics, music, and story into a single unified whole, with every single element of the game fitting with and supporting the others. The game takes place in Tokyo’s trendy Shibuya district, the heart of Japanese fashion and teen culture. Featuring many fully recognizable streets and shops from the real Shibuya, THE WORLD ENDS WITH YOU uses its setting to exceptionally good effect. The sharp Japanese comic–style graphics fit and enhance both the setting and the focus on Japanese teen culture.

In addition, ports of popular PC RPGs (such as The Elder Scrolls series and assorted Bioware games) along with a few specifically made for consoles (such as Fable 2, which we’ll discuss in Chapter 10) have given console gamers a taste of open-ended storytelling. Meanwhile, a variety of action, adventure, platformer, and FPS games have been released that feature deep, well-done stories of their own.
