When you have two passions, like video games playing and movies, instead of just one of them, you have to think for which hobby to use time. It is a big dilemma and, of course, sacrifice, because you have to sacrifice one hobby for another. Though, there is one exception when you can combine two favorite things. The result of combining video gaming and cinema is an interactive version of a motion picture or a film adaption of a favorite video game.

The first arcade game inspired by a movie was Death Race. It was released in 1976 and based on legendary Death Race 2000 movie made one year before. Though, according to other sources, Raiders of the Lost Ark game should be considered to be the first movie-based game by the reason that is was the first fully licensed game. The most important thing here, to my mind, is that such an idea to combine movie and video games came to people, and I can enjoy this one of the greatest achievement of mankind because it prevents me from the agony of choosing between playing my favorite video game or watching a movie on my sofa with a popcorn bucket. My joy can be compared with jubilation of a gambling lover who can easily find all best casinos in one place on nederlandsegokken.nl – online casino website instead of going to Las Vegas.

The news about launching the Apocalypse Now video game pleased me no end. The film of the same name belongs to my top 5 favorite films. Dedicated to the Vietnam war, Apocalypse Now raises profound philosophical questions. In 1979 its director Francis Ford Coppola conceived the film so that it would capture minds and hearts of viewers twenty, thirty and forty years later. And he managed to do this because this cult picture influences us till now.
