Come up with your own idea for a movie based on a game.

Recommended Posts

With John Cena in talks to Star as Duke Nukem and Hollywood likely screwing it up,I've decided to make a topic to make your own crazy ideas for movies based on a game.

 

I'll start.

 

Commander Keen:billy blaze a 10 year old goes to save mars with his talking teddy bear who was never in the games and sounds like Jar Jar Binks. At the end of the movie you find out it was all just in Billy's head and he just has a wild imagination.

Fallout

Spoiler

 

Follow the main quest from Fallout 1 with Ian and Dogmeat as companions

 

Vault 13. Introduce MC, who is really naive and innocent, but nice and good at talking (a speech character)  

-> Shady Sands. Introduce Ian, who is basically Han Solo. General introduction of the wasteland, how sucky and incompatible with the MC it is (and how Ian fits like a glove in it.)

-> The Hub. Introduce Dogmeat. Have the MC interacting with one or two Brotherhood paladins, set them up as xenophobic assholes. Set up the Cult as really shady weirdos. Meet with Harold, who talks about the Cult, The Master, and Super Mutants. Ian learns about Necropolis so that's where they go.

 

-> Necropolis. Help the Ghouls, get chip. Cut to scene of The Master and Lou reacting to this and deciding to spread out with raids.

-> Vault 13. Overseer is afraid of the Mutants attacking, tells you this is your fault and to go find a way to stop them.

-> The Hub. MC and Ian ask Harold to tell them everything he knows, mentions the Brotherhood know the exact location of the Master's base.

-> Lost Hills. Convince the Brotherhood to help them break in, they don't, but the Paladins shown before decide to help anyway, as a pay off of their earlier scene at the Hub.

 

-> Mariposa Base/Cathedral/Master's Vault (all the same place)

Paladins help by distracting (see: killing) the cultists. Dogmeat dies helping them trying to get in the Master's chamber.

The Master talks about human evolution and shit, Lou is a smartass like Ian but far more intelligent, in a way proving the Master's point.

MC gets the Master to accidentally reveal how to destroy the base.

Ian sacrifices himself fighting Lou, MC finishes Lou off (and maybe Ian if he's just too fucked up but still alive) and destroys the base.

 

MC comes back to the Vault and is told to just go away forever because he has changed too much, at first making him sad, angry, making him want to kill the overseer, but realizing that not only its true, but it may be best for himself, and not just the vault, to just leave.

MC goes from being really naive and afraid of larger conflict to far more okay with violence, use of force, lying, etc, as being shown in dialogues with each new character, doing callbacks to things he's learned from Ian, Harold, the Brotherhood, and so on.

Sonic the Hedgehog. Or more correctly, Sonic Adventure.

BUT, and you gotta be seated because this is the best bit, it's half 2D cel animation like Who Framed Roger Rabbit? where the inhabitants of Station Square or whatever are live-action but Sonic and his myriad annoying friends are all toons.

Best. Idea. Ever. Send chicks to the usual address, with the usual amount of the the usual substances. You're welcome.

Sonic movie is already in the works as a live action cgi hybrid at Paramount.

I suppose their ignoring my pleas for 2D cel animation means the chicks and substances aren't on their way? Dang.

I mean, that's good and all (I do own it), but where the fuck is Bob Hoskins?

I know he's dead. No excuse, not after Peter Cushing in Rogue One.

I have done this a lot...

 

Super Mario Bros as a gritty cop drama with lots of gore. Mario sleeps with the princess who is the wife of the mayor. Toad is some crackhead. They all takes drugs they call magic mushrooms due to the vials they're in. They solve murders and stop crime in a horrific part of New York City called the Magic Kingdom. They're plumbers alright they clean up the shit of the city down the toilet.

 

Doom as a kid friendly animation that has talking demons in a high school setting. Doomguy plays the principal... don't get sent to the principal. That guy will kill you! Eye rolling comedy ensues. Everyone hates it.

 

Pac Man is a normal meth head. People around him keep dying. He finds their bodies. Someone is out to get him! He decides to hide in a safe place where no one will find him. The power goes out in a house and he's then haunted by the ghosts. He thinks the ghosts did all the killing, but no he had killed them all while taking meth and they're there to haunt him. Twist ending ruined.

 

Five Nights at Freddy's as a group of teen friends each become security guards and one by one they disappear. Eventually they all decide to work the shift for the last night together to face their fears and animatronic insanity happens. Guns don't work against robots. They soon discover the man who programmed the animatronics was a prisoner at a mental institution.

 

FTL TV series where the mothership is the only constant... each and every crew dies at the end of the season as their ship is destroyed and a new one sets out the next season. There would be people who return from the first season as escape pods happen and clone schematics can be found. Not to mention sometimes there are sometimes people who get captured and then moved for interrogation purposes.

 

Duke Nukem played by John Cena and his son DJ (played by Zack Effron) go on a raunchy road trip to kill something big. They save women, party and shoot pig cops. Then they wake up once the drugs wear off to discover every monster they killed was an innocent human being. The women they saved were just normal women and not ultra hot bimbos. When they were screaming "save me!" they really meant save me from Duke and his cokehead son!

 

Space Invaders... not from the sky, because they've already landed and send out waves of marching alien drones to obliterate a farmhouse. A lone farmer and his teenage son must defend their family against menacing aliens. Think Night of the Living Dead but with flamethrowers.

 

Pitfall played by Bruce Campbell in the jungle. Hilarity, horror and adventure ensues. Its like Indiana Jones meets Tarzan, but budget and more animation. Plot is unimportant in an adventure. Pair him up with a female, an angry sidekick, a young adorable sidekick and the funny muscle with heart and you have a movie.

 

Wolfenstien played by Dolf Lungren... because he's back in movies now. He's not MechaHitler, instead he's BJ Blaskovitch and MechanaHitler is played by either Arnold Schwartzenager or Segorney Weaver. He has no allies except for a bad dog he taught how to be good again.

I always liked this take on Pac-Man (I used to have a t-shirt with it on):

 

636x460design_01.jpg

 

The artist gave this story:

 

Quote

In 1976, Cosmonaut Nikolai Peckmann was sent alone to an orbiting space station for what would be called Mission Six- to study the radiation levels and strange circumstances that killed all four crewmen of the last research mission. By the third day, Peckmann’s broken transmissions were coming back to ground control filled with increasing paranoia and delusion. He claimed that the spirits of the dead cosmonauts were coming to claim him, and that he had to keep moving to evade them. He shouted that if he could capture consume these spirits himself while he still had strength, he could move to the next level of consciousness…Truly the rantings of an insane man. Indeed, video recovered later would show Peckmann running around the confined but maze-like station, downing emergency sedatives like a madman….pausing in a corner momentarily, only to throw back vitamin pills and give chase to his invisible demons. He had exhausted the entire cargo of vitamins, pills, and fresh fruit well ahead of schedule…It was determined that another mission to recover any remains or gather any more research would be a waste of the people’s money, and the station was allowed to drift out of orbit and into space- a failure never to be mentioned again. It was ordered and assumed that all video and paper evidence had been destroyed.

I had an idea a while back for the Doom movie done better. The original doom movie was fine as an action movie but not as a doom movie. i feel like it could be improved:

so first, we don't meet the doomguy until later. second, it's just full of references to idsoftware development and 90s games. the moonbase disappears due to an incident in the teleporter testing (we'll call it a resonance cascade for references to FPS purposes) and then 6 months later cut to a secuirity team being deployed on the moon that is still there. on the ship is where we meet our 2 heros (yes, 2) BJ and Stan (doom RPG reference). for some reason, the moon has been having a lot of quakes... leading to the line from BJ "i ain't afraid of no quake" after a while the ship gets contact about more and more quakes. until... last transmission "something's come out of the teleporter! situation negative! situation negative! it's green and pissed! turn back turn back! ahhhh!"  end transmission. the team of 5 land on the moon now with a mission: find out what's happened, and destroy whatever it is. after that, it kinda becomes like diehard with 2 heroes (the other 3 die after landing). concluding with the fight with the 2 barons and the narration at the end of episode 1. no other characters after the other 3 die. just BJ and Stan and diehard with demons and a lot of 90s game and action movie references. (BJ played by Bruce Campbell because of course. and Stan played by carl urban. carl was fine.)

 

now for wolfenstein movies: escape from castle wolfenstein: die hard but in a nazi castle
                                           wolfenstein ii spear of destiny: indiana jones but he's a soldier trying to stop nazis from gaining power instead of an archaeologist trying to put something in a museum meanwhile he's hindered by nazis.

Unreal Tournament prequel that takes place in 1990ish alternative presence. Except tournament is fought by preteen kids, and it is mandatory. Will be done in cute anime style. Looks innocent, but only for first few minutes.

Fights usually look like 6x6 brutal brawl in quickly abandoned flats, but sometimes rooftops or inside bigger buildings (final battles). Mainly cold weapons will be there, but in the end even firearms appear. No death will be offscreen, no violence will be stylized (no bloody splats and shit, but when stuff happens it will be so shocking you will go on therapies). Main character dies in 1/3 of movie. From that time, you dont know who will win. No character is likeable cause everyone is bare survivor. Battles will show more fatal failures and cowardice than epicness (almost no epicness here, it is supposed to give realistic "strongest wins" outcomes).

Should be max 90min long. Will make you suffer on first watch, but will have strong motivational effect in the end.

Master of Orion.  Humans besieged by power-hungry aliens on all sides while trying to keep peace talks afloat in the galactic council.  Meanwhile the protagonist, a badass space archaeologist, is looking for the lost Orion artifacts of power while trying to evade the robotic guardians and other traps of the ancients, as well as the aliens who are trying to get to them first.  He can have an Elerian defector as the obligatory awkward alien love interest, because a movie's got to have a crappy romance subplot right?  And a Darlok shapeshifter will imitate her trying to assassinate the protagonist before he gets the artifacts too.  Spaceships will blow up.  Planets will blow up.  There will be lots of cuts to the arguments in the council that you probably don't care about but they will be there anyway.  End it on a cliffhanger where the Antarans warp their fleet in out of the blue and start wrecking everyone, forcing a temporary truce between the species against the greater threat so that there can be a "stay tuned for the sequel" spot.

 

So, sort of like a hybrid between Star Wars (mostly the space battles and the prequel senate stuff) and Indiana Jones IN SPACE.

wizardry 4

 

it's a play in one room. main character is werdna who used to be a man of influence and power but is now imprisoned in what used to be his old place of business. today, though, he's woken up with purpose - he's gonna reclaim his youth and rebuild himself as the go-getter he used to be, if he could just get out of this funk he's in

 

then for ninety minutes he enters progressively deeper layers of despondence while failing to find the single door to his cell at any point in the film and eventually goes back to bed a wreck
