Out Damned Hollywood!

I just saw a headline: "See How L.A. Noire Does Justice to the Faces of Real TV Stars"

Really? REAL TV stars? The true gods among us? Oh, be still my inferior medium’s heart!! I’ve NEVER worked on a game that couldn’t be made better (or be fixed) by adding REAL TV STARS!!!

In fact, let’s just admit right now that the film/TV medium is the pinnacle of Art, and interactive entertainment is just a tiny boil upon its side. The reason games suck is they don’t have the steady hand of Hollywood to guide them, and when a superhuman creator of film deigns to dabble in video game production, only good things can result.
