Today a new video regarding behind-the-scenes work on Call of Duty: Black Ops II has been released.
Mark Lamia talks about the relevance of Hollywood's blockbuster tradition to the video game industry. He states that nowadays, Hollywood's stars, writers and directors are willing to work in the video game industry as well.
David S. Goyer, who is a writer for the newest Batman trilogy, and now Call of Duty: Black Ops II, tells us how although the game is just a First Person Shooter, it needs to be sophisticated, and overall the storyline is being looked at like a movie production.
Goyer proceeds to claim that the story of Black Ops II is better than "most movies being made".
The interview then switches to Trent Reznor, who produced the score for The Social Network, and is now producing the score for Black Ops II.
Lamia states that the player will be able to hear Reznor's work as soon as the player starts up the game.
Both Goyer and Reznor continue to discuss how video games are now blurring the line between entertainment and art, and how video games are probably the biggest entertainment industry these days.
Lamia and Dave Anthony, director of Black Ops II, finish off the video by talking about the benefits of video games telling a story over simple film.
