What video games do you reckon should have film adaptations?


With failures such as Far Cry, The Super Mario Brothers and House of the Dead proving that directors are incapable of making a basic story work, the film industry needs YOU to help it! What video games should have a film, and why? I personally wanted to see the Spyro the Dragon movie, which was later cancelled. I reckon Medievil (PS1) or even Halo (it would be a good sci-fi flick, right?). Perhaps L.A Noire even though that pays homage to film noire.... Which do you choose, and why?

    Too right, the F.E.A.R game would be a good choice. As well as it being greatly inspired by Japanese Horror, so I can see a lot of potential.

    Super Marios Bros., though popular in my circle of friends, I thought it was an absolute flop. The character depiction was a bit sad, even though I love John Liguizamo as an actor. I did enjoy the FMV sequences from the C&C franchises.

    I remember seeing this trailer and thoroughly enjoyed the actual release. However, seeing its upload date on YouTube greatly disappointed me. The Resi movies were OK but strayed greatly from the games' plots at times. Still, entertaining nonetheless.

    I think Splinter Cell: Conviction has great potential, but it's a very complex story and few gamers understand the game. This is Tom Clancy stuff, so it's only for true fans of his. But I agree, I would watch it ^^

    Modern Warfare has a brilliant story but I personally don't think it needs to be a movie. It's practically every cliche out there with a different take. SC2 however would definitely be something new.

    Mass Effect movie has already been announced, and you can check its progress I on several sites. As far as I remember though, the cast isn't all that good.

    I disagree with the last bit. Freeman should be in it and feature strongly, and other people from Black Mesa. There has to be a strong lead character. They'd probably cast Tom Cruise as Freeman, or something. And Morgan Freeman would be Dr Vance.

    Very true, but with so many different writers on the same game, it's hard to justify lore and make ends meet. Plus, it could make what's working severely flop. I wish Blizzard the best though ^^

    There is Batman films already so I doubt that there will be a movie based on a game which is based on the same movie and comic license. There will be other Batman movies after the Dark Knight Rises so maybe it could happen but I doubt it.
