As Real as Your Life

July 26th, 2011 Comments off

Michael Highland’s film “As Real as Your Life.”

Part documentary, part narrative, and part animation, As Real as Your Life chronicles one video game addict’s experiences and explores the personal and social repercussions of spending more time playing in the virtual world than in the real one. The film brings to light the enormous potential for video games to change our society, and aims to start conversations about the role video games play in our lives.

An excerpt from the video is featured in the excellent TED Talk video: David Perry – Are games better than life? Both videos are a must watch for game developers.
