Are “Interactive Movie” Games Taking Over?

The Late Night Gamer: ecently there has been a sudden rise in the success and amount of “Interactive Movie” games, such as Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls and Telltale’s The Walking Dead.

The most important part of the game comes from your interactivity with the progression of the story, making heart-wrenching and emotional decisions that ultimately root your heartstrings to the game.

Exactly! Interactive movie games haven't been popular since....what...the early 90s? It's nice to see this genre return in popularity. They're hardly taking over the industry.

Great games come in all shapes and sizes it's good to have choices.

"Sudden rise"? Three games were referenced, of which Heavy Rain was released four years ago. Three games in four years is a "sudden rise"?

I would think that the interactive movie genre was more prevalent in the 90's when there were games like Journeyman Project, Under a Killing Moon, Myst, or 7th Guest. Adventure games were everywhere back then.

I don't think they are taking over, just a new popular genre. I love them but I still like my gameplay games too.
