More on the emergent narrative issue

Thinking about this more, and I ran across an article at gamestudies.org from September of last year, which seeks to quantify the narrative density of a game by how many Polti premises one might recognize during play.

I’m not sure I find this convincing, because it suggests that narrative comes in discrete chunks. What about pacing, development, arc?

But I’ve only had a chance to scan through the article so far, and need to come back to it later.
