    I've been doing this for awhile. I watch the video game movie cutscenes put together like if I'm watching a movie. It's great. It's watching a triple A movie with a billion dollar budget.

    That's one step away from buying a my little pony, turning vegan, and driving a prius while wearing sandals.

    I've watched videogame movies for games I've already played long ago, but don't have the time to replay them but just want to experience the story again.

    The original Metal Gear Solid is a masterpiece, one of my favorite games of all time, but its aged like milk. But the storytelling and voiceacting has aged like fine wine. This 4 hour summary of all the game's relevant cutscenes and codec conversations would save everyone at least 9 hours.



    And the interrogation tapes offers an awesome prologue to the story.

    I understand the appeal, but I could never get into it. I must play the game to feel the impact.

    I highly recommend not doing that and instead doing something useful with your life.

    The problem with this is there's still alot in the plot that gets covered by in-game play, and videos made with purely cut scenes will miss alot like a confusing jump cut

    Personally I don't feel right doing that. It feels like a sin

    Movies these days are just terrible. Video game story lines are infinitely better. Could you fucken imagine if Star Wars actually grew a set and did something like this ?

    They're great for when I'm interested enough in a storyline, but don't want to commit 20+ hours in reaching the finale. Legacy of Kain comes to mind.

    I liked unlocking the movies from PS1 SFEX+Alpha but too short.

    The bits of Death Stranding that I saw around its release did seem to actually be quite well acted/written for a videogame, helps I spose they were able to hire people like Mads and Seydoux.
