Why Hollywood Should Stop Making Videogame Movies

GamerNode's Tyler Cameron writes:
"Turning a videogame into a live-action movie always sounds great in theory.

This is all so very true. I remember when I first played Max Payne. I thought it should be a movie.... Yeah, not the movie that was made, cause that s*** SUCKED.

In Max Payne One, they kill his family and he gets the blame

In Max Payne Two, QQ Mona QQ

If thats not Enough, in Max Payne Movie, he gets to fight CGI Monsters!

I wish we'd give our video game plots and stories to either a indie group or eastern europe and see what they do... it's not like we'll be disapointed.

italianbreadman3154d ago

Give it to anybody besides those who have been doing it so far, right? Jeeze. They stink.


The best Movies based in Games are:

Silent Hill and......I think that's it.

Waiting Silent Hill 2 incoming 2011 (

yeh i actually felt silent hill was a decent film but could be better tbh. am looking frwd to SH2 though

italianbreadman3154d ago

Yeah, I kinda liked Silent Hill, too. Still not as enjoyable an experience as the games, but alright.

bjornbear3153d ago

silent hill did remotely capture the vibe of the game and consisted of a fair story and narrative =)

that and Tron are the only "video game movies" that are worth mentioning

Marojado3154d ago

Haha, this is the only reason anyone needs to stop making movies based on computer games.

To be honest, my immediate thought was something similar.

Uwe thinks their movies are somehow good to make movies like that.

Also he hates Michael Bay:
