Machinima is a portmanteau of the words machine and cinema. It is the screencapture of 3D video games and 3D environments such as virtual worlds. Machinima can range from amateur fan video like this Club Penguin - Had a Bad Day to detailed tutorials of game play.

Here we invite you to share your favorite Machinima or go on a quest to take a look at what Machinima is up on YouTube.

You know, I hadn't really looked much at Machinima, until I checked it out at lunch today...only to realize that I had seen some Machinima stuff on YouTube a while back. When Mortal Kombat Legacy came out, I was really excited, but never followed up with the web series. Now that season 1 is complete (and season 2 is rumored to come out), I think it's time to catch up.

I also saw an Episode of Sonic for Hire and Inside Freeman's Mind. I got a good chuckle from both, even though I haven't played Sonic since 1997, and I've never played the original Half-Life.

I guess my favorite "machinimas" are video walk thoughts. When I get stumped, it's what I use to pass a tough spot (better than throwing the controller at the screen...I make the excuse that it's a type of "more knowledgeable other scaffolding" ;-) )

What? No "everyone gets an 'A'" policy? ;-)
