If you like watching a particular game as a movie (with no commentary and only the game play necessary for the story) then this article will be of interest to you. I’ve listed the video playlists I watched (and enjoyed). For those who are not familiar with this phenomenon: It’s something which has become possible with the advent of large HD quality video’s online on YouTube. I find it very useful for if I don’t own a particular system but are interested in the story of a particular game only released on that system or if I simply don’t want to bother / spend the necessary (continuous) time with the game play, but do appreciate the story / atmosphere (or want to re watch the story). Interestingly enough I enjoyed some of these more than real movies (and they can be quite long).
Notes about this list
– Naturally I’ll only include game movies I feel are worth watching story wise. No commentary is in my opinion essential. Also I will only include playlists I actually watched. And I’ll add new movies once in a while.
– I do like it if some game play is included so that the ‘movie’ appears as fluid as possible story wise (not too much though). And I find it interesting to see some of the mechanics going on.
– The order in which they are shown is indicative of which one’s I found the best (the top one being the best). Naturally this doesn’t say much about the editor as I’ll try to only include ‘game movies’ that are both high-resolution and well-edited.
– Feel free to let me know if there are versions of a movie you consider (much) better than then one I included here.
All of the above movies are thanks to the effort of these editors
– Yic17 (specializes in HD game movies with no commentary; also runs Game movies database, which has a pretty limited choice so far)
– Dansg08 (has game movies both with and without commentary)
– HassanAlHajry (generally very fast with game movies of new games)
– Gamers Little Playground
