This isn't anything really different from the sort of projects we saw 20+ years ago; developers have been trying to make "cinematic" games for decades. Remember all of those FMV games?

Games have always been games and games are still games. Some of them were - and are - trying to be more like movies than others.

Not because it is short (I've bought Rez, day one, 5 times at this point and you can easily play the game in an hour and a half), because it just does not look like it would be a fun to play.

Sure, if you want to get all pedantic in regards to what classifies as a "game".
