Would Skyrim Make a Good Movie?

IGN: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim stands out as one of the biggest and best games of the year. No doubt work is already progressing on expansions and follow-ups. But for now, we wondered about the possibility of a Hollywood film adaption of Skyrim and how that might work.

The movie would be 1 hour long... that's how short the main story is when translated to a movie that doesn't show the traveling and needless conversations

As long as Ron Swanson has a leading role...

you just inspired me to make a mod for a dragon shout that summons all the bacon and eggs you have.

now when i say all the bacon and eggs you have, you're thinking just a lot of bacon and eggs. but i mean, literally, bring me ALL. the bacon. and eggs. you have.

Skyrim is a great game, probably one of the greatest game's I've played this gen. But as a movie, eh no. The story in skyrim is kind of terrible and movies are all about story.

How is it terrible? SPOILER

Dragons are returning for some unknown reason after thought dead for thousands of years Nd Alduin is able to raise them from the dead. The dragonborn also returns to unite a land torn by civil war in a desperate struggle for survival. Cliche yes but EVERY story is now.

Exactly. The story is short and generic. It was very uninteresting to me. The side quests are the whole game pretty much.

Rowland2446d ago

the setting would definitely translate very well as would some of the characters but the plot and screenplay would have to be created from scratch.

Let's see would a game all about freedom and exploration make a good movie?

In a word "No"

A TES movie set in Tamriel not directly bassed on any of the games, that could work. TES has a rich universe that could make a good background for a movie.

Maybe, following a dragonborn story in a middle earth type setting, meeting greybeards and slaying dragons......sure why not
