Molyneux – The greatest story ever told will be in a computer game

Lionhead boss Peter Molyneux thinks games will surpass the level of storytelling seen in the Godfather. Bold claims. Not bold enough. He’s told VG247 that games will tell the best story in the world. Ever.

“The greatest story ever told? I think it’s going to be in a computer game,” he said.

“And I think that if I play the greatest story ever told in the same game as you play it, your greatest story is going to be different to my greatest story.

“And that is power.”

Not only will games tell the best story in the world, but if Molyneux has his way it’ll be his team that creates it.

He added: “That ambition to do that, to write that story, or to write that game that allows you to experience that story, is definitely something Lionhead Studios wants to do.”

The best story ever. Hopefully it involves chocolate cake and getting up later than 5.00am.
