Outstanding and hilarious!
21 August 2014 | by wgeddingsSee all my reviews

I play RPGs and The Gamers:Dorkness Rising is one of my favorite movies. Most of the other movies about gaming do not really "get it" at points so I have been anxious for more from The Gamers. Hands of Fate was okay but dealt mainly with card games so it was less interesting. Now, they are back into full RPG mode but in the opposite direction.

Here, we have a "real life" Rogue, Cleric, Warrior and Mage playing fantasy characters. They play a Nerd, Nurse, Jock and Liberal Activist. Seeing how gaming characters would react to things that are ordinary here in our real world is fertile ground for jokes and this movie makes them while also not making fun of gamers.

This was a hilarious movie and I cannot wait for them to make more!
