Vidya or movies, r9k?

Which is the better medium?
>>
>>26300457
Vidyas.
This isn't even a question lol.
>>
vidya is the correct answer
movies require no skill
>>
>>26300457
I think videogames have more potential for narrative complexity. A movie needs to wrap up in maybe 3 or 4 hours but a game can easily take a whole day to complete
>>
Video games have potential but the best games are nowhere near as good as the best movies.

Comparing something like The Great Beauty to literally video game is just hilarious.
>>
>>26300457
Movies might tell a better story, but you're passive. You can pretty much shut down your higher thinking when viewing a movie.

Video games directly engage you, however. You're more involved in the story than you can be with any movie.

Movies. Video games are a shit way to tell a story and Immersion is detrimental to high art, it's mindless.
>>
>>26300739
telling a story doesn't have to be the only goal of a medium
this is why vidya wins. because it's not limited to a one-dimensional narrative.
>>
Kojima Games
They are the best of both.
>>
>>26300829

Everything in life is a story, there is nothing else.
>>
OP should specify if he meant the potential of the medium, or comparing the best existing examples of each medium.
>>
>>26300457
Movies is for braindead cucks and women.
>>
Movies you pleb.
>>
>>26300922
OP here. You could give examples and talk about the potential of both mediums. The posing question I made is open to interpretation. Just say what you want about both mediums.
>>
Video games have more potential but are actually just complete fucking garbage on the same tier as anime and super hero movies.

The reasons are simple:

>The people who work on them are manchildren with no taste; the stories are insultingly bad. In fact, a lot of video games that get praised for their story actually have some of the dumbest ones in the entire medium (see: metal gear, mass effect, final fantasy, japanese RPGs in general), so the consumers, "gamers", also have awful taste.

>Gameplay is incredibly limited by our current technology. You are not the "main character" in a video game no matter how much you want to believe it. There's no freedom, you can only do a limited set of moves and the AI reacts in a limited pre-determined way.

Film is an established medium with a lot of history, it's only natural that it has higher standards.

Video games
We can mod our women to be nude.
>>
No really comparable but I think movies are better. Movies and TV shows have given me more feels than vidya.
>>
Depends.

Movies are better for sheer artistic value, creative cinematography can portray moods and ideas better than video game play can.

Vidya is better as self insertion is stronger, allowing a person to be more morally invested, such as TLOU. Also some games have the potential to have variable story's or endings based on the players decisions, such as FO:NV or undertale.

It all depends what your looking for.

This.


If I wanna be a naked wasteland warrior, I can do that. There will probably never be a movie about that.
>>
>>26301844
Yup.
Feels good knowing that not only is the game I buy gonna give me 30+ hours of play time but also free porn customized to my liking.
