I pulled an all-nighter last night and watched RVB Reconstruction while starting on a new Gunpla, and Netflix apparently has some sort of weird live-action series (called “My Old Dad,” I think?) and the conceit is that this guy lets his dad join him online in Final Fantasy 14 or something like that?
Does that show count as machinima, or at least machinima-adjacent? It reminds me of those examples of TV shows that have an episode where they use actual video-game footage as part of the story (i.e. “Make Love, Not Warcraft” from South Park), and which get mentioned when the topic of machinima is discussed on TVT or Wikipedia.
@diverttime, you play FF14, right? Does this interest you?
