In a special Halloween edition of Irrational Game’s Irrational Interviews podcast, Creative director Ken Levine has sat down with film legend Guillermo Del Torro. During their discussion regarding storytelling and creating interesting characters, Del Torro is quick to point out that the gaming industry is just as pertinent to the art of storytelling as the movie industry.

Take that film industry! We feel a little redeemed to have such a big name in the film world recognize what the gaming industry is bringing to the table in the artistic world. It means even more when you learn that Del Torro has such an unbridled love for all things nerd as well.
