Edgar Wright "too scared" To Own Console

Post by CyberpunkCentral on Tue Jan 04, 2011 3:26 pm



His movie revels in videogames culture, but Scott Pilgrim vs. The World director Edgar Wright has told Eurogamer TV he became "too scared to have a console in the house for 10 years," after becoming hooked on PlayStation games.

The British filmmaker explained that he had to kick the habit during the making of sitcom Spaced. "At some point I had what I can only call a troubled couple of months on Resident Evil 2 and Tomb Raider 3 – and [the PlayStation] had to go".

Despite subsequently becoming a "lapsed gamer", Wright said working on his latest release revived his interest in the medium. "After Scott Pilgrim I did get a PlayStation 3, solely to play the Scott Pilgrim game. I was stunned by how well it came off."

Videogames addiction was recently the subject of a controversial Panorama documentary. Wright's obsession seems to have turned out rather better than it did for the subjects of the BBC's film, Resident Evil inspiring an episode of Spaced and critically-acclaimed zombie movie Shaun of the Dead.

You can hear more from the super-lovely Wright on his earliest gaming memories, whether he'll ever make a videogame, and why movies based on games are rubbish in our video chat embedded below.

Edgar Wright is easily one of my favorite directors of all time. I can understand his concerns. Sometimes I wish I hadn't bought any consoles because I do spend way too much time playing video games and they are quite a distraction, but I'm sure I'd be spending too much time watching television or on the computer. If not one thing, it'd probably be another.
