Movies For Gamers: The Terminator (1984)

This is a new section of where we post and discuss a trailer for a classic cult movie. The movies we select will hopefully be movies that gamers will love too. And of course, if you haven’t seen it, we’ll give you a link to get it.

Everyone loves and remembers the heroic robot in Terminator 2 Judgement Day that saves John Connor. It was a great film, but was quite different than the movie that came nearly a decade before it. Basically a horror movie, the original Terminator flick was dark and suspenseful as The Terminator took on a Michael like chase, but amped to 11. Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a heartless killing machine (literally) in this movie and with great success. The future scenes are awesome, especially if you consider the movie was made in 1984. Sarah Connor starts off as just a young mother, but by the end of the movie she begins to become the true bad ass we see in T2.

Various games have been inspired by The Terminator including but not limited to the official Terminator games.
