Gauss' Favourite Machinima

Now when I did my song choices everyone right away got on me over the choices I made. Then of course asked when I was going to make a list for Machinima, so I can be attacked for my choices again? Well today is the day for that. This though doesn't include a list of comedies because there is so many of them and to make a list about things which I find funny doesn't really serve the purpose. Although I am pretty sure people are going to ask for it, but until I decide to do it you all can settle with this list. So without waiting any longer here are my top 5 dramatic machinima movies.


5) Edge of Remorse This is extremely well done. The story is put out there perfectly. I know people will complain there is no dialogue and yes it may have been better with it, but live with it. The camera work is great as it blends with the story. Speaking of the story, it is extremely well thought out and showcased beautifully. Also the ending was perfect. So many times you have a great story with a crappy ending, but this was not one of them.




4) Blind. In my opinion there is no better machinima around, which has better camera work. I am even willing to over look the fact that the star of this is a Blood Elf. Again as with Edge of Remorse dialogue might have been better, but the music with this one makes it seem like it is like one of those escape scenes from a movie. Face it everyone is a fan of a good ass kicking. Enjoy it.



3)Ulduar Defiance. This is all about Ulduar, which the title kind of gives it away, but it also has its own personal story to it. It uses the music perfectly and transitions are seamless. Now I know this story isn't completely original, and people will probably argue that it shouldn't be ranked above others with completely original stories, but I would ask you hold your opinion until you watch it. It is about 30minutes in length so I will just include the trailer.



2)Tales of the Past III. This is probably the most epic production of a machinima ever made. The battle and fight scenes are remarkable. It doesn't have the camera work of Blind, but it has a great story. With appearences by Thrall, Rexxaar, Saurfang, Jaina, and Arthas you get the feeling you are watching something epic. Mostly because you are. I know I will get a lot of flact for this not being #1 and I expect it. I will include the final fight scene. The actual movie is over 90minutes.




1)Divided Soul. By far in my opinion the greatest machinima in existence. The story here trumps anything even Hollywood could come up with. This was his first machinima after Tales of the Past III and he proved it wasn't a fluke with that series. The combat is equal to that of Blind, the story is better than Edge of Remorse, and the voice acting is absolutely perfect. You may not completely understand it the first time you watch it, but it will make you think. I also know you will watch it again and again.



Let the arguments begin!

  3. I love the action sequence on the rogue one. I also don't understand how the second orc died did I miss him getting hit?

  4. Did I miss it as well? I watched the last part like 5 times and couldn't see him get hit. Did he kill himself because I didn't see it

  5. STRENGTH IS EVERYTHING!!!!!!! That line was awesome. I think I understand but I don't want to give it away. Also that Ulduar movie if its going to be in the top 5 needs t obe number 5. It is just blizzard's story with a minor add to it. It just doesn't compare. I do agree with the fact on your #1 it is probably the best I have ever scene

  6. I'll agree the ulduar shouldn't be in the same class as these other 4. Not that isn't good its the fact that its not its own story. I would even consider putting legs "Out in the Cold" into this bunch, but I assume you didn't because it is Christmas based.

    Also to the people who don't understand stand Divided Soul just think about it and it will come.

  9. I really like edge of remorse. It is very sad how something like that had to happen. I also don't think it needed any talking the music did it justice.

  10. Divided Soul for the win. To the people who don't understand I think the title gives it away...

  11. They are one and the same. If he kills himself it kills him. It is like the good and evil versions of himself. I think it's really great and could have even made a great full length film.

  12. Those were all pretty awesome. I agree with your choices. The story and the actual filming of the last one is incredible. Something even hollywood would be proud of.
