I'm a sparetime gamedev, and tend to go for niche platforms for some reason. Currently that niche platform is blu-ray players.
You can code games for blu-ray players using Java. All blu-ray players run Java as part of the blu-ray specification.
They are extremely limited of course, compared to other platforms. That's just what makes it fun. It's an intriguing challenge.
One thing blu-ray offers / encourages that other platforms don't, is the usage of videos. So in my latest blu-ray game I'm using a video as a background. But that's about it. The video is a universe with music. Everything else is just arcade game on top of it.
When you put the disc into a PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, it doesn't list itself under "Games" but rather under "Videos".

Yeah, with those examples, I'd be inclined to call Myst an FMV but not C&C. Because in Myst, the actors appear greenscreened into the same environment you play with, while in games with only cutscenes, the gameplay is totally unrelated to the FMV.
