Bitmob Writes: Recently I saw a Digg post about something I'd been considering lately. Every time a game sells successfully, you hear rumors of a movie being based off of it. Obviously, this is usually greeted with Uwe Boll jokes and -- more often than not -- moans and groans from gamers.
The problems with games being ported to movies are obvious: You watch movies; you play games. Your interaction with the main characters is completely different in games. You are the main character. You make his choices, you adjust his stats, you cause him to live or die. In movies, you're just along for the ride.
