I Never Asked For This: Video Games vs Movies


At the end of the day, very little has been revealed about these projects, and they might have some great ideas, but fundamentally these games shouldn�t work as movies. They�re just too complex to be worked into a single, linear story.

As I noted before, I�d like to see what a filmmaker could do with more linear titles like Call of Duty or even Halo, since those games are pretty much one-way affairs without a great deal of choice, and if the source material was treated with respect I�m sure they could turn out great.

Games now have the ability to make millions of dollars, and can be played in almost everybody�s home. Believing that a film adaptation could in some way raise the profile or accessibility of a game just feels insulting; not only to the game and its creators, but to the fans as well.

I am Liam, an English and Media student. I run a blog called The Vocal Protagonist with a friend of mine: https://thevocalprotagonist.tumblr.com/

My favourite games are RPG's, Puzzle Platformers and anything with an engrossing, engaging world or narrative. No brand loyalty here, but my favourite system is probably the good ol' Playstation 2.

Currently playing: The Basement Collection, Dishonored
