Game based movies you'd like to see.

So this is a thread where you can talk about movies based on video games you'd like to see except Zelda we already have a thread for that in General Zelda. Here's my list:

A Mario movie actually done right.

Metroid would make a good movie you know base it on Samus Aran's life childhood to the present. Her back story makes for a good movie plot.

Anyway what are Game based movies you wanna see ?

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

Game based movies tend to be bad. I like movies that are made to be in the game canon though. Resident Evil Degeneration and Dead Space: Downfall are examples.

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

Well with how popular games are today it might be doable. Not saying it will happen most likely won't thank you very much crappy Mario movie. But this is what you'd like to see if it were to be done.

Resident Evil is more of a serious game like Zombie survival we're talking fantasy like Mario.

Splinter cell and Metal Gear solid are a maybe seeing as they're more about sneaking being stealthy and a movie about that might be crappy.

None. Games are games. Films are films. I'm not letting Hollywood mess up my favorite franchises.

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

I somewhat agree with Hungry Hippo, but I do confess I'd be interested in a Warcraft movie....

However, most games I'd even half-want to see take on the risk of being brought to movie form..I'd prefer it to be a movie based EXACTLY on the game.

Like, a movie that basically takes the cutscenes from a game, adds ones to fill in the gameplay sections and gets graphically updated with CGI Square-Enix style. No 'reimaginings' of games as movies or what Uncharted almost wound up being.

So, I guess what I'm saying is don't involve Hollywood =P

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

I was about to say Metal Gear, but then I realized it would be kinda redundant.

I wouldn't mind seeing a movie based on Diablo 2.

Really? No one wants to see a Game based movie? Hollywood can't do it? What if the company that made the game played a part in making the movie?

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

Finally someone here is open minded. A Mega Man movie would be a cool concept if done right. Anything can be a cool concept if done right.

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

Well, what if we suppose the movie will be good?

Because if that is the case, Mario Bros and Bioshock are my pics.

(And, about MGS... why nobody has considered a CGI movie of it?)

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

The only series I'd be remotely interested in seeing turn into movies would be the Assassin Creed franchise.

Now that would be some awesome ❤❤❤❤❤.

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

Anything Hollywood got its grubby, greedy hands on would be ruined, because they'd involve cheesy cliched romance, make the villain ridiculously flamboyant, add an obscene amount of cursing, and overdo everything else that made the game awesome.

MGS? They'd overplay Raiden and probably make him gay. Snake would be a cliched action movie hero like Rambo.

Assassin's Creed? They'd WAY overdo the flirting each assassin does, and make them complete cocky jerks. The fight scenes might be good, though.

Metroid? Either Samus would be a weak, whining woman who couldn't get the job done without agonizing over killing every single alien parasite she came across, or be an over-the-top gung-ho feminist.

Halo? It would be completely focused on how much the Spartans are killing machines, and hardly give any attention to the struggle humanity's going through, and how close they came to getting wiped out. Master Chief would be a Mary Sue. Cliche, through and through.

Mario... Yeah I don't see that turning out well at all.

The Professor Layton-movie is actually pretty okay.

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

Many games are completely unsuited for the silver screen, but it really depends on the director more than the subject matter. I feel like Ridley Scott could make something pretty awesome out of Halo or Metroid. Pierre Morel could make an awesome Deus Ex, and a Half-Life movie by Sam Raimi would blow my mind. Video game movies aren't inherently bad, it's just that they're usually made by untalented people, starring cheap actors and produced by a studio looking for audiences to cash in on.

What flirting? The only assassin that did any kind of flirting was Ezio.

They'd find a way.

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.

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

"Guess Who; The Movie"

It's 1970's America, two detectives; detective Peter Van and detective Orlandi Augymubeng, have 4 hours to match a face of the Crescent Moon Killer. Luckily, an evil mastermind known as "Billy the Pre-Teen" has contacted them via Skype.

Only Billy knows the true face of the killer. But as per usual, Billy don't play fair, the agents have to test their brains and indeed minds to knock down 23 photographs of potential murderers and find the 1 photo that pictures the actual murderer.

Augymubeng did it, he was sick of being the only Ghanian detective and felt throughout his career that he was being limited to how far he could advance due to the prejudice 1970's America had against Black police officers so he committed the ultimate crime, and then he was going to solve it and become the most decorated detective in the world, and he would've got away with it too if it wasn't for that pesky pre-teen!

(By the way, there was a Guess Who PC game Guess Who ? (PC CD): Amazon.co.uk: PC & Video Games )
