The FMV tag stands for Full Motion Video. In the context of gaming, it refers to a genre that incorporates live-action video clips or sequences into the gameplay. FMV games became prominent in the 1990s with advances in CD-ROM technology, which allowed developers to include high-quality video footage in their games.

In an FMV game, live-action videos are used to depict characters, settings, and events within the game's narrative. Players often interact with these videos by making choices or solving puzzles through a point-and-click interface, quick-time events, or other interactive elements. The actions and decisions made by players affect the progression of the story and determine different outcomes.

The use of FMV in games aims to provide a more immersive experience by utilizing real actors, sets, cinematography, and storytelling techniques. It blurs the line between traditional movies and interactive gaming, allowing players to feel more engaged in the narrative.

Notable examples of FMV games include:

  • Her Story This critically acclaimed indie game revolves around searching through fictional police interview footage to piece together a murder mystery.
  • Night Trap One of the most controversial FMV games from the 1990s; players take on the role of a special agent tasked with protecting teenagers from evil creatures lurking inside a house.
  • The Bunker A psychological horror game set within an underground nuclear bunker; players explore its dark secrets through live-action clips while making choices that shape their fate.

FMV games offer a unique blend of cinematic storytelling and interactive gameplay elements. While they may not be as prevalent in today's gaming landscape, the FMV genre continues to captivate players who appreciate the merging of live-action footage with interactive storytelling.
