Well...when it comes to modern filmmakers, I know Christopher Nolan is very particular about using practical effects as much as possible and it's something I certainly enjoy seeing.I still think there's a way to achieve a middle ground and find a place for organic special effects. Nobody seems to like hard work anymore. All you need is a room full of computer whizzes and you're totally covered.
This really makes me wonder how many movie effects guys have lost their livelihood and can't find work today because CGI has made their profession largely redundant/obsolete. It makes classic flicks like the FX series really antiquated today...
People are charging for fan games now? Weren't paid mods already seen as a catastrophe as is? Why would anyone do this?The Half-Life paid fangame Hunt the Freeman has voice acting by youtubers. It's an amazing catastrophe
be sure to stick around to 5:30 for the most blasé soldier ever.
Sometimes the line between FMV cheese and CGI cut-scenes is very blurred. A lot of fun to re-enact.I already posted a clip from the gaming classic Exodus from the Earth, but I'll post the intor because I'm astounded nobody involved in the process of making this game and localizing it in english stopped to think about what the hell they were doing.

Lol, I didn't even notice that one! PC FPS from Warsaw pact members aren't known for their polish or grasp of the english language."Frank, you must clarify this situation. Find out about the vaccine and what the most important..." <He just kinda breaks off there at 2:35. Is that intentional?
