Choice

Stop Crying About Choice is an oddly-named but unusually perceptive discussion of choice at the boundary of hypertext fiction and games, written by “HM” who might perhaps be Joel Goodwin.

I disagree with much of the argument – I think the author mistakes the importance of rereading and of contemplation, having little patience for or interest in lyric – but this is the way to do it: serious and thoughtful discussion based on familiarity with lots of works.
