A movie takes 1-2 years to make, you spend about 2 hours watching and you probably know the names of the actors, producers and director. A song takes a few weeks to produce, you spend 3 minutes listening to and you probably know the artist who wrote and performs it. You spend about 10-100 hours playing a video game, and you have no clue who dedicated 2-4 years of their life making it, amirite?

I saw someone with 94 days yesterday. And yeah, I've got about 13 days on that game.

You know at first I was embarrassed about making that comment, but your courage has inspired me to show my true face. And 94 days!?

I know, it's ridiculous. The game has been out for less than a year which means he has spent about 1/4 of his time playing Black Ops since its release. That's 6 hours a day.

11 days on mw2...11 days I will never get back.

@Brettward95 11 days well spent.

Yeah. I would rather spent 11 days on mw2 opposed to 5 days on black ops. That game was so boring.

Much more than 10-100 hours...

For video games, I like to know the director, composer, and voice actors. As for all of the others who worked on it... well, there are just far too many.

Any time I see a movie I go there and look at all the info

Gary Newman, Markus Persson, Robin Walker, just to name a few.

Starcraft 2 ftw...

Just saying everyone knows Notch

It doesn't take 1-2 years to make a movie. Maybe one year for special effects, but it does NOT take 2 years.

Actually, movies often take a lot longer than that, especially in animation, but most of it is pre-production. For instance, Avatar took like 8, maybe 12 years? I forget exactly how long, but it was a ridiculously long time.

Oh, I wasn't meaning in animation. I'm just saying that filming a movie (which requires the actors mentioned in the above post) doesn't take that long to make. Pre-production DOES take a long time. Depending on special effects, post-production can also take a hell out of a lot of time.
Shoulda been more clear, but that's what I took from the post. We remember actors and they take a couple months of filming. We don't remember animators though. And they are the ones who work especially hard for years.
