Remember the end of the Doom movie? This feature-length FPS film is like that

If you ever watched that Doom movie with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, you know the best bit was when the film abandoned all narrative pretense to become a first-person demon destruction experience. That's pretty much the whole idea behind Hardcore, a crowdfunded first-person action film that just put out this intense trailer.

Be warned, they don't call it Hardcore for nothing: the trailer has a lot of blood, brief nudity, and explicit levels of Sharlto Copley (aka Chappie and Wikus van de Merwe from District 9). The creators say it's the "world's first action film to be shot 100-percent from the hero's perspective," which is obviously familiar territory for FPS fans. Still, seeing it all in live-action (including plugging robot parts and cables into your first-person cyborg body) should be novel, at the very least.

Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo.
