Hey! It was my birthday last weekend, and to celebrate, I’m going to write this blog… Yay.
When I was a kid, buying a game was a very, very big deal. We don’t all have the same story, but when I was in high school in France a PC game would easily cost 350 francs. (that was roughly $50, and taking inflation into account that would represent about $75 today). My parents would give me 100 francs a month (taking inflation into account, that would be about $20) to buy comic books, music, movies, snacks, drinks, etc… It meant that if I wanted to play 3 (3!) video games a year, I basically had to give up on all other types of entertainment (including going out with friends, etc…) for the whole year. Christmas was kind of the only real way to get video games, but even then, given their prices, it was pretty rare to actually get one (that, and my parents didn’t like video games anyway, so it was tough to get them to consider buying one for Christmas).
Guest blogger The Jay Doctor mentioned it a few days ago, a movie based on acclaimed PS3 Game “The Last of Us” is in the works. “The Last of Us” grabbed many awards, and was nominated for “Game of the Year 2013″ in more than 15 famed events. IGN’s review of the game in particular, says “The Last of Us seamlessly intertwines satisfying, choice-based gameplay with a stellar narrative”.
For those of you who have played the game, you already know how close to a movie the experience feels like. If a game was to ever be made into a movie, The Last of Us would be the best choice.
So what could possibly go wrong with this?

Do you remember Flappy Bird? It was big for about 2 weeks in January and then it disappeared almost as fast as it came, so people won’t blame you if you missed that. Flappy Bird was a controversial game, addictive yet clearly cheap in its programming and design.
Flappy Bird was also accused of plagiarism because its graphics were heavily inspired by the original Mario games, and, maybe more importantly, it was claimed that the game’s creator made $50’000 a day at its peak of popularity. But the author took the game down from the various appstore in order to get rid of the controversy around the game’s popularity vs its actual quality.
