I think we need to get a head start by listing the good ones, in that case. I suspect most of them are games that feature FMVs, but aren't comprised entirely of FMVs. Stuff like the Wing Commander games or something.

Numerous people have been doing that in the thread, over and over and over again.

Here is a complete list of FMV games and can be organized by date and if FMV is part of the gameplay or in cutscene only. You can find it all right here.

while it's not a retro game, I'd just like to mention Her Story in my response to this - that's an FMV game that is 100% video clips. And it's amazing.

I've seen quite a few listed... and very few interest me. :(

Who knows, though? Maybe I'll bust out my copy of Wirehead for Sega CD. :roll:

(I also own a copy of the Scottie Pippen game. Weep for me.)

Hey that's fine if none of the titles interest you. I could care less about the ladies of the 80s, but am totally fine with you folks playing it. Maybe it just isn't your month.

For what it's worth I did beat two FMV games last year:

Late Shift

There's only one FMV music game worth mentioning folks, and you know it is:

that's right - I remember being really intrigued by Late Shift after reading your write-up of it actually.
