The biggest prize in the world of acting does not take into account, until now, participations in video games.
In a recent interview we conducted with David grivel, the lead designer for Far Cry 6, we heard about some cool stuff. We already shared with you previously, Grivel’s opinion about a battle royale in the world of Far Cry, but another topic of great importance that we discussed with him was about the participation of actors in video games, and Grivel thinks that they should receive a Oscar for these papers.
Giancarlo Esposito brought his experience playing villains.David Grivel, Lead Designer, Far Cry 6When asked specifically, if actors and actresses in video games should be recognized in the Cinema industry, and receive an Oscar when they deserve it, Grivel answered the following: “Absolutely, yes. I think that what Giancarlo Esposito contributed in Far Cry 6, is all his experience playing strong villains, and he is very good at it.”
“Far Cry has always been iconic for having strong villains,” Grivel continued. “If you see the cover of Far Cry 6, you are going to see the villain, and that’s how it was with previous installments. We wanted to be sure we had someone iconic to play this time.”
Grivel thinks that the work that actors and actresses do in video games is no longer as different as what they do in series and movies. Even if the star actor, like Esposito in Far Cry 6, gets the full attention of the players, Grivel believes that all actors are equally important to the making of a video game. In this installment of the saga, for example, you can already see your character in the kinematics, and that adds one more actor who contributes to the story.
Do you think that actors who participate in video games should receive an Oscar if they deserve it? Every time we see them in more video games, for example, Hideo kojima does not release Mads mikkelsen, and proposed to be the protagonist of a game called Mads Max.
