Feature: Do Games And Movies Go Hand And Hand?
Posted 31 January 2007 - 02:35 AM
As I have said before (in previous threads), I'd like to know what all of you folks think about this; looking at the past trys, do games REALLY go hand and hand, or "can there only be one highlander?"

I personally think that any games that just copy the film tend to be a bit lacklustre in most areas . I really like the Idea of a game that prequels a film or fills in blanks . The Chronicles of Riddick was a good example of this on the XBox . Other than that , there has Rarely been a good game of a film .

The only way i see games and movies going hand in hand is the advancement of Graphics Technology. Games push the graphics and comping industry forward. If it wasnt for us gamers and our unrelenting thurst for better Graphics, and faster CPU's the industry wouldent be anywhere near where it is now. This related directly to Holliwood films because most all of the rendering techniques used in films are present in the latest hardware and games, allbeit to a lesser extent. So i think we all deserve a good pat on the back for never being happy with the latest hardware for more than 5 minutes.
VIVA LA FUSSINESS!
Great work on the article Alex. Im going to enjoy debating this one as im sure everyone will have a small difference of opinion

anyways i think its a ok thing to do. i think if you make a film from a game that is a great game the game should be the best there is. like a film on gow wud be so class. i would enjoy that so much.

I can`t comment on Doom as I saw it in the states on a TiVo system and it hadn`t recorded all of the film , but what I did see wasn`t too bad ...... If the studios will grant Jackson his wishes then I can`t see the Halo film being a Dud . He`s just the kind of director that can turn the tide of opinion on this kind of thing .
