    Are those machima movies still being made?

    Remember watching quite a few of them when WoW was still quite new. Illegal danish was a classic, and the most ambitious one I ever saw was a 90 minute long, or so where they fought against the Lich King (don't remember the name, but it was before WotLK because they didn't have the actual Lich King model) and they managed to "cure" him or something after fighting him inside Sapphiron's room in Naxxramas.

    Are these still being made? They must be better than ever with the new models.

    The youtuber nixxiom or sth like that still does some. However they're more like skits with a length of max ~10 minutes

    Captain Grim is the only English youtuber who still puts out WoW machinimas out on a regular basis. Nixxiom sometimes puts one out every now and then, but nowhere near as often as he used too. All of the other English machinima channels are pretty much dead. OxHorn films, SlightlyImpressive, etc.

    Besides Captain Grim, the only other Youtuber I know who still regularly puts out machinimas for MMOs is ZANEKONPU, who does FF14 stuff.

    The machinima scene for MMOs might still be big in China, but they aren't really being posted on Youtuber anymore. You'll probably have to go over to Billibilli or Weibo to find them. Good luck finding one with English subs, though.

    They are but not as much as back in the day. The most recent ones of great quality I remember watching is called "Light's Champions" and they were really well done.


    This era's/generation's version of "Tales from the Past" for sure.

    They aren't being made because they take a while to make and youtube algorithm requires you to have daily vids with subscribers that interact with them.

    Few Youtubers does it, but no match to the old vibe, I personally feel this.
