When Ray is mysteriously injured during an in-game battle, he begins to suspect that a dangerous link to a magical object in the game world is at fault.

This is not the Dead Gentlemen Productions movie!
5 March 2006 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

This movie is not the same as "The Gamers" made in 2002! The above reviewer is confusing the hilarious 2002 "The Gamers" with this movie, incorrectly titled "The Gamers". I have been to GenCon SoCal where they screened this movie, it is called "Gamers:The Movie". "The Gamers" is the Dead Gentlemen Productions movie of 2002. Also, there is a new movie from the Dead Gentlemen Production, which is called "Dorkness Rising." I have seen the preview trailers of "Dorkness Rising." It seems interesting. By the way, I am just a fan of "The Gamers," who feels responsible to inform the viewers about the misconception. Please do check out the facts if you had any doubt about what I have said here. You will see the discrepancy.
