Video Games that Should be Movies

Video game movies have been synonymous with shitty movies and for good reasons. They suck. The degree of how much they suck varies of course. For instance, "Street Fighter" or "Bloodrayne" were a god awful movies no matter how you looked at it; "Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within" managed to land in the realms of mediocrity with ambitious CGI but horrible story telling; and I'm willing to argue that "Resident Evil: Apocalypse", despite all of its glaring problems, was a decently entertaining zombie flick.

Why are God of War, Metal Gear Solid, and Halo on the list? Also, Duck Hunt, seriously?

Harry1903364d ago

currently in pre production.

Because it's just a studio looking to bank off the label, and they give any director a budget and timeline, just enough so that they can butcher it.

NewSchoolGamer3364d ago

but only if they followed the same style as the game on the movie kinda like the comic of 300 and the movie.

Not to mention that you would need a good director behind it otherwise the franchise will get messed up. The same goes for Halo and MGS

God of War - Zac Snyder

Metal Gear Solid - M. Night Shyamalan

Halo - James Cameron

Shadow of the Colossus - Peter Jackson

How do you disagree with THAT?

EDIT: I knew there were pompous jerks who understand nothing of culture and inner-workings of the human psyche. I just didn't think they'd find my comment this fast. Metal Gear Solid is about storyline and making you feel emotion. M. Night Shyamalan can do that. Shallow movie-goers like yourself wouldn't understand.

You have got to be kidding me.

M. Night Shyamalan makes boring movies.

I rather take Michael Bay to direct MGS than him.

They should do god of war exactly like the Lord of the Rings. Each game gets its own epic movie. Seriously god of war is the one game that could cross into the main stream movie audience and be a standout success.

I have to say though.. Silent Hill was AWESOME!!!
It felt like the game.

Just imagine if a God of War movie has the feel of the game.

IAm1Bearcat3364d ago

is who would play the actors in the movies.

for God of War, who would play Kratos? someone who's already bald? Vin Diesel? lol i think alot of people would pass (although he seems like a good fit, voice would kinda work i guess)

Metal Gear Solid? eh, i dont know if that could be a movie. there would be alot of dialogue and good luck finding good enough actors to fit all the big characters

Uncharted... maybe, but that already feels like it's from Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider

but again, the biggest thing is getting a good lead actor and having a good script. i would much rather have games stay games and movies stay movies. sure, some people would love a Rush Hour or Die Hard videogame, but the world is better off without those as a game lol

dude, if they were able to cast Peter Parker, Bruce Wayne, Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, Max Payne, etc etc etc, I'm sure they can easily find someone to play Kratos, and Snake.

LeonSKennedy4Life3364d ago

Hello...

Vin Diesel, anyone???

*snickers*

GiantEnemyLobster3364d ago

Bad Choices: god of war, killzone, resistance, etc.

I am a gangsta3364d ago

GiantEnemyLobster3364d ago

It can be targeted towards the same audience that watches Barney and Teletubbies
