Re: Game based movies you'd like to see.

I'd like to see a Mass Effect movie that retells the story of the games, where the pairing that gets picked as canon is male Shepard and Kaidan lol.

They can feel free to rewrite the ending though.

Re: Game based movies you'd like to see.

I've seen plenty of books that were turned into awesome movies, so I can't see why the same can't be done with some video games. A lot of video games today are basically interactive movies, so all you need to do is take the interaction out of them. The only thing you would really need to change about the story is make it suitable for the big screen rather than having a story catered to working with gameplay.

Assassin's Creed would make a good movie. The story would probably have to be shorter than what we're given in the games, but I see no reason why it would work.

Gears of War could work too. Read the novels before anyone tries to argue against me, the Gears universe can make for a great movie.

Fallout could work if you just focused on the main story like what was given in Fallout 3.

Final Fantasy could easily work considering it's more a movie than a game. Hell, Final Fantasy DID get it's own movie.

Red Dead redemption can easily work.

Zelda can even work. The later games have been very much story focused than the earlier games have.

Mass Effect would be perfect for a TV series.

in short, they can work. Thing is they'd work better as a TV series like Mass Effect considering the length of some game stories. Either that or they'd have to cut the original stories to make them fit or make a new one altogether that would work for a movie.

Re: Game based movies you'd like to see.

A Mario movie actually done right.
LOOOL good luck with that. A Mario movie done right would be nigh impossible. (or would have to be completely animated CG)

From what i know about Mass Effect, it seems like it could be a decent film if it were made with love.

Devil May Cry could make a decent to good film too.

Metroid most definitely.

Castlevania would be pretty damn fun and awesome if made right.

Red Dead Redemption would be easy to adapt.

Same with Grand Theft Auto.

A lot of those Space Marine games would be so easy to make into a relatively fun film.

Zelda could only work if it were Peter Jackson LotR style.

Though an Assassins Creed movie might work. That and Uncharted.

Or mabye it's just because I'm a sucker for powerful-ancient-artifact or hidden-ancient-civilisation type stories.
Yea that could be it.

There actually saw suppose to be a DMC movie, but it got cancelled.

Re: Game based movies you'd like to see.

Wreck-It Ralph.



*ahem* I actually think videogame movies are doing better these days - in the same vein as the comic book movies (they range from mildly entertaining to effing fantastic). I mean, I really liked the Prince of Persia movie (never played it myself, but I watched my brother play it). I'm pretty optimistic they could make more videogame movies work, if they got the right studios for the jobs.

That said, I would love to see a Megaman film. <.< I never did play any of the games but I, ah, adored the cartoon.
