The Ten Video Games That Should Be Movies (and the Directors Who Should Make Them)

Nymag.com writes, "We've got more bad news for the TV and film industries - this week sees the release of Super Mario Galaxy for the Nintendo Wii, the first proper Mario adventure since 1996's Super Mario 64, and very possibly the greatest game in the history recorded time. Vulture predicts that by the time the Writers Guild strike is finally resolved, Americans will have quit their jobs, stopped attending movies, and devoted their lives exclusively to the completion of Mario Galaxy. So how will Hollywood win them back? Simple: they'll have to make movies based on video games. And not just the crappy kind they've been pumping out for the past decade - good ones! Hitman (based on the PC shooter) hits theaters next week and, well, we're not getting our hopes up. But we've made a list of a few we'd like to see, along with the filmmakers we think might do them justice. After the jump, our list of the Ten Video Games That Should Be Movies (and the Directors Who Should Make Them!)"

- Mario ? I hope not.

- World of Warcraft is in the making, but giving it to von Trier would not be a clever idea. I think the should`ve made a CGI instead of a live one, but too late i`m afraid :(

- MGS, should be here, even though that too is in the making. I would also have liked to see this in CGI instead of what`s coming. I know Uwe Boll isn`t making it (thank God, or Kojima rather), but i hope they have someone who knows how to make movies. I fear it may turn out pretty crappy, and that i will see it anyway ;)

God of War
Halo Series
MGS
Heavenly Sword (it was almost a movie already)
Bioshock
Shodow of the Collosuss

They've already made a Mario movie and it sucked. I hope they don't head down that path again.

Superb find and some hilarious descriptions. Second Life film with Lynch, Super Mario Galaxy with Kelly...

Farenheit/Indigo Prophecy should be a movie. I also think Folklore would make an awesome movie too something in the vein of Pan's Labyrinth meets Tim Burton. For the reverse I've always wanted to see a game based on Dark City.
