Episode 10: Film and Gaming, or Attack of the Lincoln Memorial! 1


This episode of the Gamer’s Tavern is devoted to examining the link between gaming and film. Film has influenced tabletop gaming over the years and, more recently, gaming has started to influence films as the kids playing the Red Box grew up to be writers, actors, and directors. This week’s show notes are going to be a little odd as there aren’t going to be very many links. We talked about a lot of films during the podcast and, while I’ve listed them all below, I’m not sure whether you watch films through Netflix, Amazon Prime, DVDs, or if you choose some othARRRRR method of getting your media. So I’ll list the film titles for you to search, but there are some interesting notes you may want to look at when it comes to some of these films.
