Well, The Line does touch that, but it has bigger focuses in mind.Originally Posted by Mr. MR
A game like The Line isn't made for entertainment, but it is a good video game that portrays emotion very well. Not all video games are entertaining but some of them are nonetheless a good video game. See?Originally Posted by Mr. MR
The same view you hold of the world's view on video games exists for everything else ever. The good, the bad, and the ugly, so to speak.
I haven't played Xenogears but I doubt it can stand next to master literary works and critically acclaimed movies.
Except that goes for everything. I see a commercial for the latest film or see a low quality book and consider it garbage.Originally Posted by Mr. MR
Anyone who has read a good story knows that reading plays off of your own imagination.
Flims uses the imagination of everyone involved with it, almost a collaboration of visions.
Video games is a unique way of storytelling medium but it will probably never get the chance to become great.
Reading is restricted to whatever the writer writes while watching something is simply observation. With video games, you are virtually experiencing the creation firsthand. I tell you, playing Goldeneye is a hellavalot more fullfilling than watching the movie. More so than reading about it as well.
