Sex, movies and videogames

January 29, 2009 | By | 2 Replies More

Movies are a staple of American culture.   Videogames are another staple.   And yes, movies that feature videogames constitute ultra-special moments for those who are fans of both.

What are some of the top movies that have utilized videogames as part of their story lines?  Nick Smith of pwnordie.com has taken away much of the guesswork by compiling video-gaming excerpts from National Lampoon’s Vacation, Back to the Future II, Superbad, 40 Year Old Virgin and many other popular movies.  If you follow this link to Nick’s site, you’ll experience the escape, the competition and, yes the dysfunction that Hollywood associates with our intense use of videogames.

What kind of site is pwnordie?  It is a relatively new video site “dedicated to everything related to video games. Users of the site are able to upload their very own original gaming content and share it with the world in one location built just for them.”

    Consider how the relationships between video games and movies have evolved since Tron here and here.

    Lately I've been playing Grand Theft Auto, i'm most impressed with the "live" music/radio, driving physics, and cinematic scenes.
