Extracting footage from video games

I've tried googling this but I probably didn't use the right search terms as I didn't get any helpful results.

There are a lot of vids out there using footage from video games like Final Fantasy, Half Life or World of Warcraft. I am not only talking about actual game sequences but also about the story telling video sequences that come up in the game. Does anybody have any idea how to extract these from the actual games? It has to be possible somehow because I see people use such footage all the time.
