Why Must Video Game Movies Suck?

In today’s world, movies are struggling pretty hard to keep people interested. Most stories have been played out or just aren’t told well enough to capture people. Sure, there’s the occasional “Inception” that pops up, but more often than not, people have been relying on other forms of media for their storytelling. The most popular of these being comic books and video games. Most of the time, comic book movies end up being pretty good, if not at least entertaining. Why is it that video game movies can’t capture that same, if not similar, quality?

The story is too old to be commented.

There is no objective barometer to say that ALL video game movies "suck". I enjoyed RE1, MK1, Tomb Raider 1, and even Tekken to an extent. Obviously they don't have the quality of acting or script of an Inception, but its not like they lack entertainment.

Sadly, it's because the directors don't know much about the source material or simply don't care, whereas comic and book adaptations (generally) seem to be taken far more seriously.
I mean, could you imagine the uproar if the makers of the Harry Potter movies had said: "Harry Potter is a pretty good book series... but imagine how awesome it would be if we added a main character called Alice...and she was super powerful! And could take on Lord Voldemort with her bare hands!"
