This year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is proud to introduce a new category: Best Video Game Adapted from a Movie. And the nominees are:
Shoot your way through 1970s Berlin in this vast moral quandry from the makers of Grand Theft Auto. “Trick out” your assassin and then lay waste to the Palestinian leaders who either did or did not orchestrate the murder of Israeli competitors at the 1972 Olympics. Each Palestinian is increasingly difficult to assassinate as you hunt down their leader: code name “Bowser.” Or assassinate your friends with the multi-player function.
Goodnight, and Good Luck
As Edward R. Murrow, you use the fledgling power of broadcast media to stand up to one of the most powerful men in America, Joseph McCarthy, and his dangerous minions known as the “House Un-American Activities Committee”. Write, edit, and produce real-time news segments powerful enough to capture a disinterested public’s attention.
Getting the truth behind a shockingly vicious murder is up to you and a wise-cracking, gun-toting martini who rides on your shoulder. Use your devastating “Flamboyance” “Wit” and “Big City Aura of Importance” combinations to persuade two murderers and a small mid-western town that you’ve got their best interests at heart (not really!) and thereby change the face of non-fiction literature.
Navigate the dangerous waters of life as a closeted gay man in this dramatic role-playing adventure. Play as either Jack Twist or Ennis Del Mar. Tend the herd, ride in the rodeo, and live a solitary life of unspeakable loneliness, all while keeping your feelings hidden from a multi-leveled world that can’t understand you. Then, break the bricks to get all the gold coins.
