    I have one question- who is Hilter and why are we scared of him?

    The last paragraph. Houghters, you win the internet. Also, if you don't need Hideo Kojima anymore, can I have him? Even just for a weekend?

    I may have bitched a bit when you weighed in on the whole ME3 ending thing but my love for your articles has not diminished, Dave. Gold.

    If you haven't seen The Wire you haven't seen the greatest show on television. Love to see it get mentioned even as a joke. That Game of Thrones one was bang on though was it not? Kind of reminds me why I have lost the desire to play JRPGs.

    The Wire is not the best show on TV. The Wire is not the best show by HBO. The Wire is not even the best show by HBO set in Balitimore dealing with the drug gangs. Watch THE CORNER. Infinitely better than The Wire. And it's based off very real life.

    The best show by HBO is Game of Thrones. The best show on Earth is also Game of Thrones.

    I couldn't help but laugh out loud while reading the ending of the Battlestar Galactica one. So funny. :)

    Most of these are sadly true... Though I WILL say that, as idiotic as Band of Brothers by infinity ward would be. It probably wouldn't be the bore-fest that band of brothers actually was. It would have made no lick of sense, and it would be shit, but still... Also, while the medium still needs to grow, I think there ARE some genuinely good stories and scripts in videogames. Bioshock, Journey, Shadow of the Colossus, To The Moon. I mean, sure, some of them still have slight videogamey elements, but if you take the story as a whole, and translated it as it is to film or series. I'd say they would hold up really well.

    I'm not sure how games like Shadow of the Colossus and Journey have good scripts per se, I mean they're more about the experience and atmosphere. All of these examples in the articles are plot heavy with plenty of dialogue. Hence the beauty of the video game medium, you have narrative without much in the way of a script, hence why a film translation of some of these just wouldn't work.

    Well true... But what I meant is that if you could capture the essential premise and atmosphere into a movie or a series, it COULD work. I said this mainly because I don't really believe all videogames stories are just "good for a videogame".
