Video Game Cutscene Movie Club (Watch/Discussion)

In the last few decades, video games have come a long way. From humble beginnings in Pong, games can now be incredibly cinematic, featuring nuanced writing and expressive acting made possible by advancements in performance capture technology.

As the overlap between movies and games increases with ever more actors, stunt performers, writers, directors, composers, producers, and developers working in both mediums, I thought it might be worth having a place in the Movies board to discuss storytelling in gaming and introduce non-gamer cinephiles to an area of filmmaking they might be missing out on.

You don't need to be a gamer to enjoy the amazing stories games have to offer.

To start things off, one of the best stories in a video game in recent memory, and one some moviegoers may find themselves vaguely familiar with if they've seen a recent film adaptation, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End:

Found a review from the perspective of it as a cutscene movie:

Simon & Alisha (Misfits) | Amy & Rory (Doctor Who) | Nadezhda & Mikhail (The Americans) ♥
Tyrone & Tandy (Cloak & Dagger) | Gomez & Morticia (Addams Family) | Nathan & Elena (Uncharted) | Geralt & Yennefer (The Witcher)
