Re: Super Podcast Action Committee - Episode 8

It's also interesting to note how high-budget games are marketed like movies, to the point where every high-budget game seems to need a trailer...

I think following the 'Zap! Pow! Bam!' mentality of Hollywood with computer games is a dead-end in the long run anyway, whilst there will always be a market for it, I think the majority of people will get bored with that style of game eventually.

Edit: As an example, take the X-COM series, it would be possible to make a movie out of the story, but never out of the game, because computer games allow the protagonist to be someone who could never be represented as such in a movie. That's why games like XCOM Enforcer wasn't recieved well and the Syndicate reboot bombed, because people took a 'film' attitude to the game and completely ignored what the game was.
