The Paxton Configuration: Not Bad For a Non-Player Character: Lance Henriksen and Video Games, Pt 1 (2002-2008)
William Johnson, the talent who last week brought us that amazing podcast regarding The Mist (2007) with Michael Alatorre, today offers the first part of a survey involving Lance Henriksen's work in video-games.
At The Paxton Configuration, Will writes "Not Bad For a Non-Player Character: Lance Henriksen and Video Games, Pt 1 (2002-2008)," an inspired choice of subject, and our first video game post on the blogathon. Very cool.
Here's a snippet:
Be it bad guy or good guy, horror, sci-fi, or western, Lance Henriksen has done it. And the adventure continues. But let's take a look at Lance's history in the video game market, in chronological order. For as the world turns, so does Lance's role in the history of video games. What follows is a bumpy, wide ranging, and up and down road. . .but in the end, Lance Henriksen prevails in providing his voice and making something special, sometimes out of nothing.
Thank you Will, for another original and involving post.
