If You Like RPG - Have You Seen "The Gamers" Movies?

I am amazed how many avid role-playing gamers I run into that haven't even heard of The Gamers movies by Dead Gentlemen Productions and Zombie Orpheus Entertainment members. If you love role-playing games, you should have seen The Gamers movies. Help Zombie Orpheus Entertainment get to the next goal of The Gamers: The Series!

I am amazed how many avid role-playing gamers I run into that haven't even heard of The Gamers movies by Dead Gentlemen Productions and Zombie Orpheus Productions members.

If you love role-playing games, you should have seen The Gamers movies.

Help Zombie Orpheus Entertainment get to the next goal of The Gamers: The Series!

They are getting closer, but more folks need to step up to make it a reality.

The main reason is probably, while there is a strong core of loyal fans, just not enough people know about the movies and the effort to create the series.

So help spread the word and join their Patreon page to support making The Gamers: The Series a reality!

I've seen a lot of very insulting movies about gamers, that clearly were not made by RPGers, while The Gamers movies by Dead Gentlemen and Zombie Orpheus seem to be labors of love, with a lot of tongue in cheek of course, and one of the few that was not being downright mean-spirited about gamers.

* There is a terrible "Gamers" move by Sideshow Productions, that is absolutely horrible and mocking of gamers. Any chance this is being confused?

The movies I think have been to varying degrees poor to terrible representations of gamers, and found to be boring and focusing on too many dysfunctional negative stereotypes to downright horrible and mocking (they vary between tabletop RPG, LARP, and computer-based RPG):
* The Dungeon Masters
* Role Models
* Lloyd the Conqueror
* Screw It, I'll play make believe
* Dungeon Crawl
* THAC0
* The Assemblage of the Crystal Sphere
* Second Skin
* Monster Camp
* Unicorn City
* Darkon
* UberGoober

Not as bad:
* Gamerz with a z was better than those in the above list, but didn't enjoy as much as The Gamers.
* Knights of Badassdom, I actually liked the first part, until the horror film part kicked in, and the butchered editing that happened with the release. :-)
