not even close. Video games at best are B movies. This trend towards the cinematic in video games shows that the video game industry is in bad shape. They think they have to be movies to be appealing. Being games is not enough.
Yeah not really... maybe if you stack the best up against the best, but average to average they are about the same...
So you don't think VG stories stack up to the likes of Total Recall (2012), Terminator (all), Titanic, Transformers, Expandables, Rambo, Rocky, TDK (series), Avengers, Skyfall etc etc .. or are all those B movies?
I don't see how expanding on VG narrative (when it actually has way more potential than film) is a bad thing, and most games aren't this overly movie type experience like uncharted is, infact movie type games are in an extreme minority. Just because you guys only see what the major publishers throw out doesn't make that the only games on the market. Additionally, if you think I am wrong, please tell me what makes a game trying to be a movie. Cutscenes? Trying to have a story? Occasional set pieces? I really want to know.You're listing Transformers, The Expendables, and the Total Recall remake alongside Skyfall, First Blood, The Terminator, and The Dark Knight?
