What better example can you get of converging media culture?! I was tickled, at least.
I’m sure that I can describe this as a distinctive genre within machinima – when using one game to parody (?) another game. Lovely the way that the gaming sound just makes it complete – would it ever work with a rock song? This is the mixing of gameplay mechanics (although is it gameplay mechanics if we’re just passively watching it?)to describe a story, in my opinion, so deserves it’s own genre type within machinima.
But then I get confused when watching this superb film (embedding disabled for some mysterious reason).
Ah – what’s the point of organising everything into definition boxes really?
