Feature Film Made In GTA IV

Nearly a decade ago, we talked about how the concept of machinima was becoming more mainstream, and plenty has happened since then. People have made all sorts of cool stuff within video games. Slashdot points us to a short blog post by someone pointing out how it’s becoming cheaper than ever to make movies these days, and points out a few great examples.
