This paper is concerned with answering the following question: "Is Vladimir Propp's Model (31 Functions and 8 Broad Character Types) a valid model with which to analyse games from a variety of gaming genres?" More specifically what genres of games can be analysed by this model and in what terms? Can the model only be used to analyse the story arcs of games or can it also be used for analysis of level narrative and even perhaps for dialogue between the player character and computer controlled characters? In this paper, Propp's Model will be used to analyse selected games from a variety of genres in terms of character archetypes, story arc, level narrative and character dialogue. The ability of the model to cope with in-game player decisions will also be examined. The validity of the model as a video game analysis tool is assessed and recommendations given on which video game genres the model is most applicable.
