I'm having a hard time figuring out what your debate is about.

I'm providing sources to information proving the Media is by far, not demonizing the Video Game industry, and you are trying to point out things you believe I am wrong about.

Going back to 2 posts to when you said:

Quote

and their for shows that many of the ideals of the games franchises are maybe destroied or hurt in the movie


How would "ideals" be destroyed? Unless you took Tomb Raider's expansive mythology and applied it to your real life beliefs (in which I hope the majority of people refrain from)... I don't see in any way, shape or form a hollywood movie, based on a video game, could hurt anything, let alone ideals. Ever heard the term "any publicity is good publicity"? If a Hollywood production is featuring the title and trademark your video game company owns, this term applies ten fold.

Yes but did it also accour to you that King Kong wasn't based on a game and was pretty much a guanteed sucess because of its name. and the game probaly sold good because people wanted to play as a giant monkey


Did I say the movie was based on the game? I have read my post 3 times just now and I believe my mentioning of the movie was to help prove that the video game industry is colliding with the a multi billion dollar movie industry. I said "more and more Directors for big-time hollywood flicks will approach the video game industry in a more serious manner" ... obviously I knew the fact that the video game was based from the movie, otherwise I would have chosen a differant structure of words.

Quote

Also did it ever acour to you that maybe game devlophers don't need directors to make great games, it just director need game develpohers to make good gaming movies


Wow you amaze me with this information. Is this a fact?

Quote

Also again Chronicles of Riddick wasn't getting help from the director showing that game developers are fine without interferance


Exactly ... my ... point.

Quote

Yes no need to tell a gamer what will happen in the future for gaming just a wast eof breath we know all of this already


If you know this... and you still think the media is demonizing the video game industry... provide us some links to news articles that display the video game industry as something bad. Please, indulge us sir.

MOG, The two week time frame is up and I  am afraid this means that you are now disqualified.

itsjustadeer wins by default.
