A mostly undiscoverd art form, fragmovies or montages are a great source of entertainment. There is a huge community of people dedicated to making videos of their favorite games. No matter what type of game you play, there’s bound to a group of people who enjoy showing off their skills. I myself am a huge shooter fan, if you haven’t picked that up, and there are a number of sites I like to visit when I’m bored and like to watch people better than me pull off some of the craziest plays I’ve ever seen. I mean seriously, some of the people that play video-games have GOT to be freakin’ cyborgs or something…
Anyways, here’s of list of my favorite sources of fragmovies and montages.
A great source for fragmovies from games that more realism-based. (CoD 4, CS:S) Tek-9 is the top CoD 4 team in the world.
The Movie Vault
Mainly a site dedicated to Source Engine games such as Counter Strike, Team Fortress Two, Day of Deafeat and others, there is also a collection of other games like Quake III: Arena, CoD 2 & 4, and many others.

If your a fan of fast-paced sci-fi shooters, this is the site for you. You’ll find hundreds upon hundreds of Quake, Quake II, Quake III, Unreal Tournament, and UT:2k4 videos. Of course there are other games, but move-so-fast-your-brain-matter-dribbles-out-of-your-ears shooters are the main feature here. (Check out AnnihilatioN, my favorite Quake III fragmovie!)
Halo 3 Forum
This is for all you console fans out there. The videos section on H3F is the best collection of Halo videos on the net. Browse the videos section on the forums for the latest videos made. Also, the Video Help section has some of the best tutorials for capturing from your TV. Not worthy enough for a seperate mention, Halo3Montage.com is also a half-decent source for H3 montages.
Check out these sites, or google your favorite game and watch some videos. After watching many CS:S and CoD 4 fragmovies, I’ve actually managed to pick up little details here and there that make me a better player, and I hope you can do the same. Well, have fun and once again, Happy Fraggin’!
