Live actors

Other (objects, etc.) concept

Some or all characters are acted by real people or animals (not just voice acted). May be limited to cutscenes, videos, or similar.

Not to be confused with real protagonist or other real people offering their likeness to the games.

This is as opposed to the norm of drawn, computer generated, etc. characters (actors).

Digitized images/video tags do not imply they're of live actors, thus this tag is separate of them.

The first Live actors video game was released on December 1990.

Electronic Arts, Activision and Virgin published most of these games.
