I can't help but think of Granny's Garden on a BBC Micro any time this sort of interactive story is mentioned.

Re: Netflix to allow viewers to choose their own ending.

Too many people like sad endings though. Stories (nearly) always should have a happy ending.

Re: Netflix to allow viewers to choose their own ending.

It is a shame Netflix don't do sport - being able to decide the end result would be really good (especially when combined with betting)
