BAFTA Games Question Time: Games as Big as Film?
Video: TV's Jonathan Ross argues that film tells story and creates characters better than interactive entertainment
At a sell-out event in London last week, BAFTA and GamesIndustry International held Games Questions Time, a public forum aimed at shedding light on the continued success of the video games industry.
Presented by Eurogamer's Ellie Gibson, the panel consisted of broadcaster Jonathan Ross, Torsten Reil of CSR Racing publisher Natural Motion, Sports Interactive's Miles Jacobson and Lego Star Wars publisher TT Games' Tom Stone.
In the fourth short video of the event published today, answering a question from the audience, Ross compares games to film, arguing that the latter has more emotional impact due to better storytelling and characterisation.
