The Guardian recently spoke with Stan Lee about his involvement with Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 — which, honestly isn’t very interesting in and of itself — but once the conversation became about videogames in general, the comic legend shared his refreshing outlook on the industry.
“If I were young now and I wanted to do stories, I would very much want to get into the videogame business because it’s the most exciting. Videogames and movies are the most exciting forms of entertainment,” Lee says.
“But a videogame in a way is more imaginative, it has more variety. In a movie you stick to the plotline, in a videogame you go in a million different directions,” he explains. “I have no idea how they’re able to do that. It’s like a miracle.”
What a neat concept to think about, if I do say so myself. Now the question is, what company would he work for? I wonder which game studio is the most in line with the way Marvel Comics operates.
