The lack of the lack of knowledge

"At a roundtable event at GDC 2013, a roomful of video game writers shared the tips and techniques that have helped them navigate some of the more precarious positions in their careers."

Antony Johnston, who wrote ZombiU and Binary Domain, characterized the situation as a perceived "lack of authority" on behalf of industry writers.

"In my experience, the problems isn't just that people don't understand how a story works, but they think they do," Johnston said. "It's not just the lack of knowledge. It's the lack of the lack of knowledge."
