Groundhog Day

Groundhog Day is a classic movie. I have watched this movie numerous times so it gave me time to think about what if this scenario happened to me? It brought up many issues for me and made me think about many things that I probably would have never thought about. Groundhog day really makes you realize that Time is precious.

I do not think that this would be a good video game because it would be boring because it would be the same rountine over and over again. It's already laid out for you and there's no way that you would be able to control the situation. On the other hand, as we saw, Bill Murray saw that he could change not what happenes to him, but what happens to everyone around him. It gave him a chance to better himself because he knew that he could. Which could be fun to play, but you will still be trapped because in a game your charcter wouldn't have feelings and you most likely would never have the realizations playing the game as you would if you saw it happening to someone.

After looking at both sides, I think that I am going to stick with my first opinion. Groundhog Day would be better as a movei because it affects the viewer, whereas if you were playing Groundhog Day: The Video it would not be as personal because you do not think of your charcter as real and therefore would probably dismiss this situation as simply silly.
