Good video. It was a laughably stupid comparison and deserved the trolling and mockery it received. Schindler’s List came out almost 30 years ago IIRC and is still talked about and still holds up. LoU2 will be forgotten in a year or so, if not sooner.
The worst part is the way the press gushes over narrative type games because they badly want their medium to be held in the same light as movies or television. When in reality if LoU2 is the cream of the crop when it comes to gaming narratives, it’s not even as good John Wick let alone Shindlers List.
I would say TLOU2 and similar are very good narrative games (like RDR2), but since they are made to be blockbusters the type and level of story would also be similar to blockbuster in movies (so your John Wick is appropriate comparison), perhaps some indies and A tier or lower could have the narrative level of a deep movie since it wouldn't need the mass sales, but then it would possibly lack on visuals, at least with the newer tools it is possible to be made pretty enough. Future is exciting.
