Ellen Page: “Why Would You Not Want To Explore Video Games?”

Hollywood actress Ellen Page says she was “blown away” by the modern achievements of video games while making forthcoming PS3 title Beyond: Two Souls – and claims that the potential of the medium needs to be explored more fully. (Beyond: Two Souls, Culture, Ellen Page, PS3)

She's always been down to earth and cool....
... nice to hear she's got an open mind to try new stuff like videogames :)

Excellent. Ellen is a great actress and I'm glad she enjoyed playing the role. But she said she stopped playing video games when Crash Bandicoot came out. She has no idea what she missed out on over the years. It's high time society recognized just how awesome video games are today. I hope I live to see that.

some people don't need to play every game regardless of how awesome they may be.

That's true. But I didn't say she needed to play every single game. For example, I don't watch movies or watch a lot of TV shows, but the few that deserve my attention--the ones that move you to the point of changing your entire viewpoint on how the world works--will get it. I'm saying that the games that deserve recognition should get just that, and from a lot of people. I'd guarantee a game like Journey or ICO would change the way a lot of people think. It's an art form like anything else, and should be treated as such.

I commend Ellen for saying this, and hope that maybe with her saying this, some new people will be encouraged to pick up a controller.

I'm guessing at around the time Crash Bandicoot dropped, her career took off. So it's understandable why she stopped playing.

Because its usually just to find some random item that has no bearing on the games outcome, many a open world game has not been finished cause of fetch quests.
