come on... Matrix came out in 1999, I don't think that for the time video games had the tech to recreate bullet-time during gameplay. The PS2 wasn't even out yet! If anything, video games took from The Matrix movies and Matrix took from anime.

The shaky cam first person view has nothing to do with FPS, it was The Blair With Project which started that and many movies before it made use of it too but not to the same extend.

And the other 2 are stupidly irrelevant.

Matrix...ermm never seen a John Woo movie before?

Matrix made bullet-time popular but Max Payne´s bullet time inspiration comes from movies like Hard Boiled and Hard Target.
