I’ve become completely enamored with Vine, the new app from Twitter that has users creating 6-second looping videos and sharing them with friends across social media. People are finding some neat ways to use it, creating stop motion animations, flying objects, and food recipes. It’s a tool that many have already spent some time with, and has led to some ingenious short films.
Still in its infancy, there have been some great little video game inspired clips created in it. We searched the videogames, xbox, ps3, and nintendo hashtags and picked out some choice cuts and embedded them below for your viewing pleasure.
Props to the mini-directors for their creations. Follow them all on Twitter and Vine for more great videos.
I love this first one for the disembodied gloves that crawl across the floor. And the thumbs up at the end.

Judging by what some people are saying of the Dead Space 3 demo, maybe this 6-second cut captures all of the best parts of it.
