- A little further down the spiral of obscure game exploration, Joel Reed Parker has done an in-depth analysis of the DVD game genre, and as he explains: While doing some research on FMV games in general I started looking into the console, PC, and arcade games that have been converted to DVD video format."

Parker continues: "This took much longer than I thought it would. Everytime I searched for a picture or link, more titles would pop up. A lot of these titles are fairly hard to find, even on the internet. I'm pretty sure this is the most comprehensive list of US released DVD games anywhere, as depressing as that might be."

And blimey, it is indeed - with odd titles from Dragon's Lair III ("in-game footage of the Dragon's Lair 3D [normal PC] game which you then control like a traditional Dragon's Lair game") to the D&D licensed Scourge Of Worlds ("...it seems to have a bit of an underground following. It was released by Rhino and there's even a Special Edition version.")

And probably the worst-looking one? The Misadventures of James Spawn - "The first ever interactive movie produced specifically for DVD. A fresh off the boat stereotypical Indian man receives a ring that lets him wish for stuff. That description combined with the cover picture should give you an idea of the quality."
