What game is it they call "Rebel Assault" in the first screenshot? Doesn't look like Rebel Assault to me...
(The star of that one? A then largely unknown actor called Clive Owen. Wonder what he’s doing now…)
He was doing okay until this line:
...making fat sacks of cash starring in movies, apparently. He should have said they're taken as side gigs and then just left it alone.
I actually thought this was an interesting article. I agree that the prose is dreadful, but the guy dug pretty deep into the memory banks--he mentioned a whole mess of FMV games I haven't thought about in years.
I'm not even sure it's all that cynical. The success of Wing Commander and 7th Guest did spawn a zillion terrible variations that were all trying to come up with a unique way to involve a video shoot in a game.
To be honest isn't Indigo Prophecy/Fahrenheit and Heavy Rain like the old FMV games?

games like WC4 and the Command & Conquer titles were really amazing - what did they get right?
