None of it is FMV, all just pre-digitised and converted graphics.

Looks to me like a user-made list. Not really a definitive guide.

Yeah, I think you're right, and as these aren't FMV games (e.g. Street Fighter The Movie, Pitfighter etc) it might be nice to have a 'Best use of digitised images in a game' question in the future!

Star Trek: Borg of course! It plays like an interactive episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation with my favourite character, John de Lancie's Q, having more screen-time than in all seven seasons of ST:TNG.

The 7th Guest. Completely blew me away when I first saw it running on my mate's PC. Filled with brainteasers and a nice soundtrack too.

Call of Duty, definitely. It almost feels like you're controlling it in some parts, it's that immersive.

Yes I remember this; there was also Klingon, where you also had to speak Klingon into a microphone. Really wish I could play those games now.


Did anyone play that PC 'game' where you directed a movie? Was it any good?

I love, love FMV interactive movie adventures, so choosing a favourite is nigh on impossible. But if I must then it would be Quantum Gate and its sequel, Vortex. It has a strong theatrical aspect to it including convincing acting and explores some interesting ideas regarding illusion and reality that are deeply enhanced by the interactive, decision making aspect of the game. It's the most immersive of the lot that I've ever experienced.

Power Rangers on Mega CD was an interesting take on the genre.
