Top Five Video Games That Should Be Made Into Movies

"With the recent announcements that both Assassin’s Creed and Deus Ex are getting the silver screen treatment, I thought it’d be fun to list my top five video game licenses that (if handled correctly) could make some pretty spectacular movies. As will all opinion pieces, bear in mind that this list is solely of my opinion, feel free to agree or disagree accordingly (just keep it civil if you do)."

I think that Red Dead and L.A. Noire would be better as miniseries instead of movies, but that might just be me.

I didn't see LA Noire in the list, which is odd, considering it's in the picture. I kind of agree though. I would go one step further and say LA Noire would make a good TV series. Each week, a new case, not entirely dissimilar to Monk.
I like the idea of a Red Dead miniseries.

As for the rest of the list: there are a couple of Dead Space movies, both direct to DVD. I'm not familiar enough with Castlevania to comment on it. I do think Bioshock and Elder Scrolls would make nice movies.

Well then it's your lucky day because there is going to be a TV show called LA Noire. It stars John Bernthal (Shane from The Walking Dead) and Jeffrey DeMunn(Dale from The Walking Dead) is also in the show.

Good point,

I think most games would do better as episodes. Movies aren't long enough to fit in the best moments in a game, when they try they usually seemed rushed.

Then again people do OK book versions.

L.A. Noire was already a TV show in spirit: it was called 'Lie To Me' and it was cancelled. Great show, though. Shame.

QuodEratDemonstrandm1863d ago

Watched it on Netflix. Tim Roth was brilliant.

DrRichtofen1863d ago

LA Noir is already getting its own tv show it should be airing next year on TNT, I believe its going to have Jon Bernthal "Shane" from the walking dead playing as a main character or something.

The Elder Scrolls? no, just no. the story is not very good, its better a saga like Legacy Of Kain....wait, what am I saying? just don't destroy videogames by turning them into films!!! keep them separated

This article sucked

( I KNOW THERE ARE ONLY 5 THAT CAN BE PICKED BUT THERE WHERE ALOT BETTER ONES TO BE PICKED LIKE THESE AND JUST GIVING A BUNCH OF OPTIONS)

QuodEratDemonstrandm1863d ago

Here have some more.

Portal
Saints row
Infamous
Just Cause
Prototype
Metal Gear Solid
Mass Effect
Armored Core
Guitar Hero or Rock Band would make a fair to middling reality show, think along the lines of American Idol, but it's your skill with a guitar being tested, not your singing..... hey this is actually a cool idea!

i't love to see a battletech/mechwarrior movie.

i know it's not originally a videogame ip but still, it'd make a kick arse movie if it was done right.
