In an attempt to elucidate the truth of this question, I pose it to the massess?
which is more important to YOU the members of COMICvine????
Comic books? or Video games?
oh, and no prevaricating (although I realize that's difficult for some)
"Hmm...I can't speak for everyone else, but I would say comic books...Ubster, what's prevaricating mean?"
Prevaricate, is an advanced word for...LYING...;)
and YOU my friend, at the very least, have my respect for being a COMIC fan...first!
You'd think the site was called 'Videovine'...based on the amount of video game threads...:(
The Godhead says:
"True dat, man. I mean, don't get me wrong: I have nothing against video games. I mean, Mortal Kombat, GTA, and the Evil Dead games are all that keep me sane sometimes, but ater completing them, you feel like you've just wasted however many hours. I mean, I dunno, when I beat Zelda, there was nothing there, emotion wise. Now, when I finished Watchmen, by Alan Moore? Different story friend, believe me..."
I've enjoyed both.
Comic books entertain our fantasies about vigilante justice (usually).
Video games entreat our yearning for simulated combat, play, and/or adventure.
Comic book superheroes have made appearances in video games as have American horror film monsters such as Leatherface and Jason Voorhees.
Video games can explore environment-perception acuity or terrain flexibility. I'm waiting for a great Aquaman (DC Comics) adapted video game.
If we look at war-simulation video games, we get a nice synthesis of comic book entertainment and general video game thrills.
Maybe it's all about 'mortality mirrors.'
