Whether you think of them as “full-motion video,” “FMV,” or “a regrettable trend in game design,” cheesy interactive movies once seemed poised to take over the game industry – and with the help of MacWorld’s Leif Johnson, we brave stilted dialogue (and our own audio issues) to revisit five fondly remembered FMV games from the distant ’90s. Then we bite into Apple Arcade’s games, get charmed by Link’s Awakening, and look at the dead consoles you want to return as “classic” versions.
What game series would you like to see get its own FMV game? (Terrible or wonderful, up to you.)
