Some of those videos are just mind blowing. Wouldn't know where to start, personally.

I think it's quite universal...

You see fans do films, mods and all sorts of stuff indirectly related to their favourite game. It's just combining hobbies, really, but in a way that COULD lead to job ops in the future!

Yeah I know at least one top machinima maker who has ended up in that line of work as a result of what started out as a hobby.

In regards to mods etc, gamers do that to make the game better. Films don't improve anything about the game. It's weird, dunno why people do it but I'm glad they do.

I'm very glad people DO spend that time. I love machinima.

There's some good machinima out there, but I admit I tend to prefer the comedy ones. It's a fine line - serious ones and music videos tend to be far too po-faced for me, and they seem embarrassing, but on the other hand comedy is so easy to do badly.

That said, one in particular sticks in mind, though I'm damned if I can remember what it was called...

Too much effort for me! Although a few turn out alright I wouldn't ever bother. :lol:
