The thrill of the chase. The rush of the chase. The thrill of the chase from the moment the race begins to the moment you jump in your car and begin the endless pursuit that you will never quite hit the end of.
For a long time, thrillers have been a major part of movie making. After all, if your big story is about death, why not also have a race to the end? So we have this genre of film that is so thrilling, it’s the reason why the majority of movies are made.
As one of the most popular genres of film, it’s easy to get carried away with thrillers, but this is a genre that is best left behind. For one, it’s impossible to predict how long a thrill will last. And two, its often difficult to know how much you need to be excited about a story to be willing to engage in it. In this way, it’s much easier to be lulled into a false sense of safety when we’re trying to be entertained.
Well, I have to say I’m not the biggest fan of thrillers, because I’ve never been that wild. But this is a genre that’s easy to identify with. It’s the genre that lets you take your time and savor the ride, and as much as I love it, I’m not sure there is much of a thrill in that.
Im not even sure that thrillers are a good place to look for the thrill of a life that has been lived. When you’re in a life-threatening situation, you don’t need to be afraid of anything. That’s not what thrillers are about.
And here’s the thing. Although thrillers don’t have the immediacy of games, they can still provide excitement. As long as games have a story and a “plot” to follow, the thrill of the story is more than just the game itself. If you’re a thrillist, you’ll find that thrill and interest in each of the many plot points.
While games have a plot, thrillers don’t. The plot could be the same as the story, or it could be different. But you can still create a thrill by following the plot.
A thrill is any suspense or excitement that makes you want to get back and find out what happened next. Games give you the satisfaction of knowing you completed the game, but thrillers bring you the satisfaction of knowing you made it through the story.
Games can give you a thrill, but thrillers are more than just games. In a game you might know something is going to happen, but it might not. In a thriller, you might know you’re going to be shot in the face, or fall down the stairs, and yet you’ll still be able to control your reactions.
In both games and thrillers, you have to learn how to use your skills to do the most important thing: make it to the final level. In a game you might know which character you need to get to, but in a thriller you might be blindfolded and have to memorize the entire plot.
