The Jimquisition: Games are not movies, get over it

Oh hello, I didn't see you there! It's been a while since we had one of these stupid little videos, isn't it? Here's one for you. It has Escapist written on it for some reason. Don't worry about that. 

The Jimquisition kicks off with a new series and a fresh flavor as I tackle the rising attitude among developers that videogame should aim to be more like movies. Obviously, I disapprove of this attitude, and tear it a hole in my own particular way. 

There'll be another one next Monday whether you like it or not!
