"Not content with dredging through our collective childhoods for comic book and cartoon heroes to bend to their corporate will, Hollywood executives have now started piling on video game-to-movie adaptations. The problem with most, if not all, of these recent video game movies is that they suck, hard. Not that these executives care, since they are just cynically telling directors to paint-by-numbers and churn out dreck that the fans will watch anyway. Since when do games like Street Fighter, Tekken, or Mortal Kombat need movies made about them, anyway? The major point of these games is punching other people in the face, hardly enough content to fill a 2-hour feature film.
To encourage debate and hopefully to show the world that not all video games are mindless entertainment, we've compiled a list of video games that we think would make better films than the current crop of duds."
