Still No Great Video Game Movies - Protagonist Pitfalls - Extra Credits



It's been 5 years since we did an episode on videogame movies so let's take a look at where we've gone and where we've yet to go. In a world where comic books rule the cinema and an entry into the Mad Max franchise swept through the Oscars, why have video game movies been left by the wayside? We think that it has something to do with how video game movies tend to treat the main characters... or rather, not treat them, as a way to preserve lore perfectly.
