7 Video Games That'll Make You Feel like You're Watching a Movie ...

By Holly

Not all video games consist of shooting down enemies and racing cars on a track. Some of them have in depth stories that you'll be dying to finish. They'll let you take on the role of a character and control their actions and dialogue choices. That's why it'll actually feel more like you're watching an interactive movie than playing a game. If you like that idea, here are a few games you should check out:

1 Life is Strange

This is a story about your average college girl--except she's able to travel through time. After she learns about her powers, she does whatever she can to prevent her loved ones from getting hurt. Of course, it's never a good idea to mess with time, which is why her plans don't always end up working out. You'll be in charge of making the character's decisions, so make sure you give her a life to be proud of.

2 Until Dawn

If you love horror movies, then you'll love this story about a group of teenagers who spend the winter together in a cabin. You'll get to control pretty much all of them, which means you'll be in charge of whether they live or die. If you make the right choices, you can finish the game with everyone still alive. But if you make the wrong moves? Your favorite characters will be gone.

3 The Wolf among Us

Do you love fairy tales? Well, this game is about the Big Bad Wolf. Of course, it also includes Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, and all of your other favorite fables.

4 The Walking Dead

It doesn't matter if you love The Walking Dead, or if you've never had an interest in it before. This game has entirely new characters (with the exception of Glenn and Hershel). You'll play as Lee, a man who's on his way to jail when he learns about the zombie apocalypse. With the help of a little girl you're bound to fall in love with, he tries his best to survive in the new world. When you're done with the game, there's even a sequel for you to play!

5 Beyond Two Souls

This is the perfect game for all of you science fiction fans. You'll play as a girl who has special powers that others try to use to their advantage. At points, you'll play as her as an adult. At other points, you'll play as her as a little girl.

6 Tales from the Borderlands

This game lets you play as two separate characters whose stories intertwine. It contains action, adventure, and even a little love story. Whatever you want, this game will give to you. It's created by Telltale, who also created The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, so you know it's going to be good.

7 Heavy Rain

This is the tale of a man who loses his son. Instead of letting it destroy him, he decides to do whatever he can to try to get him back. This game has plenty of twists and turns, so you'll always be on the edge of your seat.

If you want to feel like you're watching a movie that you're actually involved in, you'll love these games! Have you played any of them yet?
