It's heavily cinematic in presentation and direction.

Batman: Arkham City is the best game of all time.

Right but most of these games are classified as action genre...

But games like super mario are labeled as platformers...

shouldnt these games have their own genre like cinematic, movie like or something?
#5Mad_CauliflowerPosted 10/23/2013 1:28:26 PM
because it is an action/adventure game, which is a genre.

Cinematic game, is how it presents itself.

I really ******g hate this thread. TLOU is as much a videogame as any other.

And no, I'm not being defensive. I strongly believe that you can call Beyond: Two Souls an interactive movie.

If the last of us is an interactive movie, then Batman Arkham City is an FPS. Final Fantasy is a racing game, and Watch Dogs is a platformer.

Batman Arkham City is an action/beat em ups game
Final Fantasy is a JRPG
Watch Dogs... I dont know

but no

It's a video game. The cinematography isn't any more overbearing that Resident Evil or Metal Gear.
