Bioware talk about Mass Effect movie, their views on the future of RPGs

SystemLink: "RabidWalker of the Official Playstation Forums UK had a chit chat with the co-founders of Bioware, Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, about pretty much everything ranging from their past lives as medical doctors to the upcoming Mass Effect film, of which very little is known. We've pulled some of the highlights below for you to absorb."

If done right, a Mass Effect movie would be incredible. Assuming they make one for all 3 games, the greatest trilogy after Lord of The Rings? Maybe.

"If done right"

That is the key. Honestly I have little faith in video game to movie adaptations anymore. The only half way decent one was Silent Hill.

I must say, I agree with this. All too often game movies fall into the trap of too much trying to be what the game is, rather than adapting the source material to film's format. You can't create an interactive experience in film; it's intrinsically not possible. What I want to see are entertaining films clearly set in the same universe and maybe with similar characters as the games, but with a key focus on story, visual style and - the key thing - good, quality acting.

he is the last guy that should be talking rpgs when dragon age 2 bombed, and they do action adventure games with rpg elements, not the other way around

Amongst rpg circles, bioware has become the number 1 joke

Ha .. Dragon Age II kicked @$$ and to me it's the best example of how a fantasy themed RPG should be done.

Slade2379d ago

you cant even say that with a straight face. I cant without bursting out into laughter.

Generic as generic can be.

I didn't know Bioware made RPGs.

Julie2379d ago

Well they used to make one of the best rpgs for me like:

Baldurs Gate I and II (Shadows of Amn) is one of the best RPGs i have ever played, i still play it.

Also Neverwinter Nights and Never Winter Nights 2, wich i just bought again with all the expansions from Steam , pretty awesome RPG and still looks nice! geeze the magic effects looks better than DragonAge by a lot! :O

But well i agree Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age 2 are not so much in to RPG :3

If the movie becomes a primarily action oriented film then it will suck, imo. The best sci fi movies of all time have good character development, dialogue, and in the end make you think. The science should be explained a little bit, like in the first game, and it should NOT be over the top action. That, imo, is the ONLY way the Mass Effect trilogy on film will transcend the current rut video game film adaptions have always been in.
