After watching the heavy rain style GTA episode made by Ezequiel Guerisoli, it got me wondering. Could the gaming industry kill the blockbuster movie industry??
Come next generation and generations after, graphics are gonna be truly "photo realistic" with modder's like Ezequiel being as dedicated as they are, theres gonna be plenty more of these episodes in the years to come. Which in turn could lead to companies not wanting to spend millions to create a movie when people are making movies with any protagonist, backdrop and stunts they like for a fraction of the price.
So the question that needs to be answered is would they be a market for this kind of movie??
My answer is yes, Ezequiel could of so easily added S-3D to this project, meaning people who own 3dtv's would of downloaded it, and with it having familiar graphics and setting i'm pretty sure a lot of gamers would do 2.
We all know that CGI sells just look at what's avaible at the moment and how well it actually does.
All it will take for this kind of stuff to hit mainstream is, better graphics and a strong enough plot to justify sitting through a 2 hour
Wanna hear your thoughts on this one!!!
