ND: Making games is harder than making movies

Think it's a difficult job directing big budget movies in Hollywood? Think again, because according to Naughty Dog's Amy Hennig, it would be much more difficult for them to make an Uncharted game than a movie of the same.

Amy was asked whether her team would be able to make a Film in the light of Uncharted 2 being compared to many movies, to which she replied:

"We probably could. And honestly - I'm sure I'm being completely foolish to say so - but in some ways I think it would be a lot easier. What we do is so complicated. People have made analogies before - it's like you're trying to shoot a movie while inventing the movie camera. We have to write these games engines to make the game do what it does," she said.

"An industry like film, where there's some new technologies but a lot of it is working in a very familiar territory, there's a formula they can use. Whereas we're right out on the bleeding edge all the time."

This Naughty Dog sure knows what she's talking about, the lady ain't no novice.

  1. that's a pretty broad statement, of course in some instances, but not all the time.
