Default FMV (full motion video) games

Does anyone here have any recollections (good or bad) of FMV (full motion video) games? The games I can think of are the two Mad Dog McCree games, along with Who Shot Johnny Rock?

I also remember a short-lived games machine called the Philips CD-i. Only recall one game for it, called Voyeur (actor Robert Culp appeared in the game).

Going to chuck in a couple that i bought from over at gog .com, namely Megarace 1 and 2. Avoid No.3, it genuinely feels like it's unfinished. Fun, dirt cheap on-rails car combat racing games...

I remember and have blu-rays for Dragon's Lair and Space Ace. Great production values, but they're pretty much non-games.

It's one of those eras that you pretty much just had to be there to appreciate on some level. At the time it was a pretty big novelty to have somewhat of a cinematic quality with live-action sequences in a video game. As a kid I found it pretty mesmerizing and it was kind of like the equivalent of seeing blu ray for the first time as visual eye candy. In retrospect, the vast majority of the games using this technology come off as pretty campy now. But I still enjoy some of them for what they are and an attempt to try something new at the time with improvements in technology and greater storage capacity, etc. They were like interactive movies. Phantasmagoria is still one of my favorite games and they spent a whole lot of money filming and mapping out the game. It was pretty short lived style that represents a point in time.

I like Time Gal! I had that on Sega CD but the quality was pretty bad, I have it on iPad now and it is way better...although I would rather use a controller instead of tapping a screen.

Dragon's Lair II was probably the best of the animated "non-games."

Did anyone play Ground Zero Texas on Sega CD? I think that was the last FMV game I bought on disc.

I remember playing 'Ripper' which came on 6 cd's, a huge thing at the time. The cast of the game is quite amazing, with Christopher Walken, Paul Giamatti, Karen Allen and Burgess Meredith amongst it.
