Should Movies and Video Games Ever Jump in Bed Together?

Should movies ever jump into bed with gaming titles or even the other way around? Over the years, movies and video games have had a somewhat tumultuous relationship and there’s certainly been a lot more hate than love. (Industry, PS3, PS4, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

They have, its called licensed gaming.
So far, all but a few games have made anything worth mentioning.

Now, if you mean should they borrow from one another? I would say no. The game industry can borrow from movies. But movies have nothing to learn from the gaming industry...at least nothing productive.

Should they? No. Can they? Yes. I think we've already seen the detriment of cross-media entertainment when it gets taken too far; Rock Band, Guitar Hero, Wonderbook, any Interactive movie, and coming up, Beyond: Two Souls. It's all fad and folly, gimmicked and greed driven... in other words, not good for actual gamers and the industry, long term.

I prefer gaming to remain gaming and not to be expanded into something it isn't...
