AI Good Guys (in games in films)

I learnt about a new film genre.

Until recently I was unaware of the film genre game characters who want to be good. After watching, I can recommend both Free Guy (2021) and Wreck-It Ralph (2012).

Both films show the lives of characters in video games. The main characters (in the film) want to create a better life for themselves and the other game characters. I found this idea refreshing while watching Free Guy, only to find out that Wreck-It Ralph explored it too, nine years earlier!

There are plenty differences between the films, so you don’t have to choose one over the other.
