Full-Motion Audio – Vidjagame Apocalypse 335

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.)

  1. QotW: An FMV style Sonic the Hedgehog game with the 2020 Movie’s Sonic. It would piss of what’s left of Sonic fans, but the game would be glorious like the highly acclaimed trailer for the movie! We could also license gangsta’s paradise.

  2. QotW: I want an FMV Resident Evil game much like the opening of the original, cheesey acting and all. I just want to see real people trying to pull off that dialogue in real life.

  3. QOTW: Tetris!

    Each actor is dressed in a squishy blocky tetromino costume, and films every variation of rotation and movement, as well as them falling to the bottom of a giant glass case.

    Additionally, scripted dialog scenes can be added for individual combinations of blocks. What does T-block think of L-block? How does I-block feel being slotted in at the side and disappearing immediately? I have to know!

  4. Hi! Just wanted to say I started subscribing to the lasertime patreon after Chris went on that beautiful rant about guns in the U.S. on Vidjagame Apocalypse. I wish more content creators were as honest and outspoken as he is about whats been going on in the states. Don’t stop speaking your mind, I greatly appreciate it. <3
