Though they have the same title, a film director and a game director can have two very different jobs. As a film director almost always guides the a team into making an product that is ultimately their vision, a game directors job could simply be to make sure a game gets completed, their vision secondary to the "mission."
This isn't always the case, especially now with game directors turning into recognizable superstars. Game directors are becoming known as visionaries in the same sense as their film counterparts, so what if their film counterparts started making games, too?

There was a time long ago (the 90's/early 2000's) where it seemed like movie tie-ins to games were a foregone conclusion. If your movie had guns in it, there would be a game about it. The industry even exploited movies that weren't gaming-related at all, just to turn them into generic, bargain bin castaways. (I'm looking at you, Scarface.) Then, the storm stopped. There hasn't been a drive for proper console/PC blockbuster tie-ins in years, as they've mostly been relegated to throwaway mobile game status. Which makes this list all the more interesting.

Comic book movies are the fashion this day and age, to the great pleasure of nerds across the nation. The moves themselves happen to be getting better in quality, to the point where some of the best in the sub-genre stand up next to other great films from every corner of Hollywood. Video game movies have not been so lucky. The good ones are few and far between. The rest turn us into unrelenting optimists, scratching and clawing for any shred of "good" from otherwise redeemable movies. Warning: this list will a lot like that.
The PC version of Grand Theft Auto V was a long time coming. People clamored for the PC versions, mostly so they could frolic into the game's guts and mod the crap out of it. Gamers were given an extra treat when Rockstar released the Rockstar Editor, which was a developer-created mod suite that gave players easy access to almost all of the games assets. It also included a director mode. It's been chaos ever since.
