The brainchild of director, star, and co-writer Orson Welles, it has become critically lauded over the decades as one of the greatest films of all time. Some would argue that it’s the greatest, period. In more recent years, it’s also been labeled an artistic threshold by games journalists in search of “the Citizen Kane of video games”—a moniker used so often that someone actually created a Tumblr dedicated to compiling instances of this specific comparison.
And it is absurd."
