This has got to be one of the funniest threads ever. Angles add a cinematic effect to the film (hence the name cinematography,) gameplay is not cinematic.

Cloverfield had excellent cinematography, even though it relied on the first person perspective to tell the story. Same with (imo) exe.

cin·e·ma·tog·ra·phy (sn-m-tgr-f)
n.
The art or technique of movie photography, including both the shooting and development of the film.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't see anything in that definition that binds how cinematic a movie is to 3rd person camera work.

That's correct, but i think in a game where you can't really control the 1st person aspect of the cinematography, it has to be ignored. Sure you can pick clips, but the only video that should ever be praised for 1st person cinematography is .exe, just because it's a beautiful film, especially with the syncing in some scenes.

Because of that lack of control, it seems more appropriate to me to ignore the 1st person aspect of halo 3 montages in this round, especially since .exe isn't in this one.

I wish people would just vote, and let that be that. There is no point in trying to validate why you voted for what you voted for. Its being done to try and sway voters. Stop trying to make people hop on your bandwagon.

(Used "you" & "your" not talking to no specific person. That may be the wrong "your" but f..k it lol)

I don't know if I fully agree with eamonn but he kinda makes a point. cinematography might not be the right word for this comp, but then again you guys do have a definition of it. so whether or not it's technically the right word, there is a clear definition to base your vote on

btw please vote for contractus people, the opening angles are so cool and it's really different from the other entries

Voted for M2. Exus mapped out every angle.

Yes you can. exe is proof that you can. You also need to take the second half of the definition into account, which is its development.

I agree, though I think cinematography is poorly defined in the OP, and some of the nominations poorly chosen. My post was targeted toward everyone who was facepalming eamonn because, on the whole, he was right.

Voted M2. LBYL3 was a close second for me.
