By "video game movie", I do not mean movies that were adapted from video games. Oh, no.
Instead, I mean movies that have video games as a plot element. In light of the upcoming French thriller Black Heaven, now is as good a time as any to take a look back at some of the other films that have incorporated video games into their plot. Several of these movies came out during the early 1980s, hoping to capitalize on the then gaming craze.
