5 Games that are essentially interactive movies

Adam Smith from Coregamer: Have you ever sat down to excited to play a game and when it's all unwrapped and spinning in your disc tray for the first time, you find yourself watching more often than actually playing? In the movie industry, features increasingly seem to shy on story telling and rely more on attracting viewers by throwing hours of special effects in the mix. In the gaming world cut-scenes are slowly taking over in the same way. There was once a time when games were 100% gameplay, but nowadays actual playing time seems to be limited more and more as cut-scenes and button-prompting-interactive-s egments take hold of a lot of current generation titles. Variety is great, sure. But sometimes us gamers just want to play!

the ultimate "interactive movie" would be either dragon's lair or space ace. Actually, pretty much any of those generation laserdisc arcade games. You pressed a button or moved the stick and then watched the animation play out.

What, no Dreamfall? There's loads of action in the games the lists.

Is there no action in Lord of the Rings?

funny... these are my some of my favorite games this generation.

I remember when I was younger I would play games just to get to the cut scenes. I think of them almost a reward. Play through really difficult gameplay to watch some awesome cut scenes.

Uncharted ? Mass effect ?

come on

It's like a Movie, just because Uncharted 2 and Mass Effects have loads of action, doesn't make them antlers movie like. Watch an Indiana Jones Film, then go and play Uncharted 2, both action packed whilst mainting some quieter scenes. The games are interactive due to them being playable...
