Recommended Posts

Well since the DOOM movie is beening made...I was wondering what other games you all would like to see become movies?

I'll start the ball rolling with three that I would like to see:

1. Theif 2 (the metal age)
2. StarCraft
3. KKND (Krush Kill 'n' Destroy) 1 or 2

Weird choices i Know..

Oh and if a thread like this has been done before..(Sorry)

GAmes into movies:

The Suffering

Carmageddon - Sort of like an anti "Fast and the furious." Hell, there's even a bald guy in it.

Duke Nukem - fucking duh.

Blood

The most obvious I can think of would be Half-Life and Deus Ex, as they are quite close in terms of plot to being a movie already. Losing the interactivity would be a blow (especially in the case of Deus Ex), and the film makers would need to add something substantial to compensate. And not just more explosions and car chases. :p

As a kids' film, Lemmings might be cute. Kind of done in the style of "It's a Bug's Life" (or whatever it was called), with the plucky lemmings having to solve all sorts of problems set them by some evil race that is toying with them, and finally breaking free and kicking some ass with, er, their shovels.

unfortunately, none of the games with enough depth, character, and originality to make an interesting transition to cinema will ever do so. game movies due to their very nature generally require monster budgets, and unless there are more or less guaranteed ticket sales due to the popularity/accessibility of the franchise it's not going to happen.

i'd like to see, for example, a film rendition of planescape: torment, a champion crpg known for being profound above and beyond anything else seen in a video game. if done right and in the spirit of the game, it may actually do the storyline more justice by removing the tedium of the hack-and-slash text-heavy original. not to mention that bringing the fascinating visuals of the planescape universe to life would probably be the best use of a bloated hollywood movie budget in a long time. but since it wouldn't sell tickets to stupid people based on name recognition it's not going to be made.

most of the games listed would make horrible films even if done exceptionally well, half-life and deus ex are the only exceptions i see otherwise.

Fallout or Final Fantasy 6, but only if I got to direct or write the screenplay. :P Also, Liam mentioned Planescape: Torment, which is an awesome game, but I think it would be a bit lackluster on the action for a movie and it didn't explore the Planescape universe that much (he only went to like 2 real planes outside of Sigil fer cryin' out loud). I have some pretty sweet ideas for other Planescape-related stories. The Baldur's Gate series would rule as a movie, but I think it would only work in some kind of miniseries format.

Ah haha!!!! LOL!
This is too funny, I see these kids at our local mall doing this shit and I wonder to myself who actually dances like that?
As for games to movies, GTA Vice City would make a good movie!
