I realized some games like GTA V or God of War have a very cinematic feel in them. So I wondered; can videogames really be seen as an inspiration for making movies? If so, which ones do you like the most in that aspect? If you don't think so, please tell me why.
of course they can. Both of my screenplays have been hugely inspired by video games. I am a gamer myself. For me the ones that influenced me the most are : Bioshock trilogy, Dark souls trilogy, Bloodborne, Halo,.. .
We have movie adaptations of video games these days. Prince of persia, Warcraft, assassin's creed, Hitman, Silent hill, Angry birds, Tomb raider, Mortal combat, and a ton more.
Whatever inspires you whether it is video games, comics, paintings, films, the news, or whatever. It's all valid. Inspiration comes from all over. I'm not much of a video games guy myself but I can totally see how they could inspire film ideas and approaches.
Thanks everybody for your kind comments! I might had not express myself clearly. I meant inspiration in a more technical than conceptual way. For example The fully sequence shot God of War or the smooth character transitions from gta v.
