This week on The Collision, we’ll be talking about video games, why they tend to suck when they’re made into movies, if movies based on video games can be better, and if their increasingly cinematic nature prevents them from moving between mediums. We also get into a surprisingly contentious argument about Wreck-It Ralph. Finally, in honor of this week’s topic, we recommend some video games instead of movies.
