War of the Servers: A Look Back

It changed everything about GMod. The 1 and a half long machinima that shaped what Garrysmod is today. When GMod was a 9 and carefree, until… the :10bux:. This is:

I won’t lie, WOTS is the main reason I even started playing Garrysmod, but it’s actually a really good film too. WOTS was a better adaptation than War of the Worlds, because it did stay true to the book in a satirical way. While Lit Fuse Films is basically dead, they left a collect of GMod videos that I don’t think can be topped. And if you’re wondering what happened to them, they joined Bioware and do cut scenes now. A fitting end, wouldn’t you say?

Join me today in commemoration of this great movie by watching it with me, and us. If you have seen it, watch it again, or have never seen it, WATCH IT RIGHT NOW, because this is the one and only WAR OF THE SERVERS:

I never liked this film, don’t get me wrong, really well made, but that’s it.

No surprise they did the cutscenes, really good directors, just shit at the story bit.

:frog:

Well, it was at least better than many machinimas people try to make today.

Not the best visual version of War of the Worlds (that would probably have to go to Jeff Wayne’s musical) but at least it’s better than the god damned Tom Cruise movie.

Definintely one of the best machinimas I’ve seen to date. Well fleshed out story and some good characters. Really wish I could’ve gotten the free dvd when it was out

I cried when I found out there wasn’t any DVDs left.

look at the upside, The people who made that (the tech people…) are now working for BioWare

I loved it they made it so well it’s just epic.

I love that movie. Still watch it on a regular basis. And it’s probably the best adaptation of the book, ever. They got the feel just right. Futile war against an unstoppable foe. I showed it to my dad. It depressed him actually.

It actually manages to be emotionally involving. A crowning triumph for Machinima. Wish it could be on TV, to be honest.

It was a terrific movie, the best machinima I’ve ever seen

Watched it last night ahhh the memories.

It made my laugh how the mingebags talked, and eventually how they were defeated (School was on monday) , but yes an amazing adaption as well. Am I stupid if I didn’t realize it was War of the Worlds until the ‘young admin’ appeared?

Thought you were talking about Top Gun for a sec

So fantastic.

The whole movie was done amazingly, there wasn’t a second I didn’t love

This movie was so good.

One of the few good Garry’s Mod Machinimas.

I’ve always adored this machinima… I’m still wondering what happened at the end…

After I watched it, I no longer thought of Machinima as unprofessional, WOTS is testament to that.

I thought It was the best movie machinima for Gmod, but I couldnt help being annoyed at the storyline, “There are too many of them to ban”? and that is why they all got slaughtered?..come on you have epic screenplay, actors, directing, and editing, yet the storyline I found to be abit weak.

They had everything at their disposal except a decent storyline. That’s what kept me from liking it.
