2013 Video Game Vids

As video game visuals improve and their characters and narratives become more complex, games are also becoming a far more attractive source for vidders. With a wide variety of styles and genres, games now give vidders the opportunity to explore traditional aspects of AMV and live action vidding, as well as entirely new ways of presenting and telling a story.
