How Gaming and Movie Industries are Inspiring Each Other
Though Steven Spielberg’s nostalgia-infused Ready Player One and Channel 4’s virtual-reality drama Kiss Me First are examples of the way mainstream cinema and television have been tapping into video- game culture in 2018, it’s not just the stories on screen that are learning from the realm of joysticks and pixels.
