Today two of the most famous nerds, Gabe Newell and JJ Abrams, took to the stage at DICE 2013 to discuss “Storytelling Across Platforms”. This included various arguments about their mediums and the respective storytelling techniques but there was something that has peaked my interest. JJ Abrams said “There’s an idea we have for a game that we’d like to work with Valve on,” and Newell replied “We’re going to find out if there’s a way we can work with you on a Portal and Half-Life movie.” Could this be simply teasing fans? Could a Valve game written by Abrams become a reality? Could a Bad Robot film (JJ Abrams’ film company) convert one of Valve’s beloved games into a block buster movie?
