What does it mean to establish a canon of video-game storytelling? What are the benefits and dangers of thinking about video games in terms of canons? Why is it worthwhile to examine whether or not a classic like Ocarina of Time deserves to be remembered?

It was our pleasure to discuss all of these questions and more with the great people of PAX South last month at our presentation on With a Terrible Fate’s ongoing series, Now Loading… The Video Game Canon! Check out footage of the panel below, and look for more coming soon.

Thanks again for having us, San Antonio—we hope to see you again next year!
