Are Video Games the New B-Movies?

From Peter Suderman (via Andrew Sullivan):

I’ve been playing a lot of Killzone 2 this week — which, by the way, I highly recommend — and, in many ways, it’s really just an interactive B-movie. The scripted bits that carry along the in-game action consist almost exclusively of tough-guy cliches pieced together from the last forty years of action movies, comic books, and war films. It’s silly, outrageous, over-the-top, and incredibly entertaining — just like a good B-movie should be.

People don't generally make out (or get it on) in the backseat of a '64 Chevy while a video game is playing out, though.
