In general, Scott Miller is no fan of movies based on video games, which isn't surprising given that so few have been successful. The "Tomb Raider" and "Resident Evil" franchises sold well, as did "Mortal Kombat" and "Silent Hill." But the remainder -- and there have been many -- mostly failed to capture the excitement of their source material.
Which is why, Miller says, he has a better idea. The co-founder and CEO of video game developer 3D Realms Entertainment -- home to such bestsellers as "Duke Nukem," "Max Payne," and "Wolfenstein 3D" -- intends to build games from the ground up with transition to movies and TV uppermost in mind. In other words, they are being created for convergence.
