People have always enjoyed listening to stories. Earlier, people used to exchange stories and tales with each other over a fire or a meal.

Later people began telling stories through writing in the form of poems, prose and novels. Today, there are more mediums of storytelling including radio, comics, movies, TV shows and video games.

While reading a book or watching a movie simply makes you a spectator, videos make you feel more involved. As a result, video games have gained immense popularity over the last two decades.
