I read a very eloquent and thoughtful post about writing strong characters in a thread today and it got me thinking about how some gamebooks may really excel in one particular category. So what are everyone’s opinions on which HGs and COGs excel in these categories?
- Best use of humor
- Most interesting characters
- Best dialogue
- Most compelling plot
- Most fascinating universe/setting
I figure if nothing else this gives you a chance to compliment your fave and maybe end up attracting new readers to a gamebook.
I’ve only read about 10, most of them COGs, but at the moment I would answer as follows.
- Star Captain
- undecided…maybe ZE?
- Heroes Rise
