Lionsgate is looking to make "The Hunger Games" into a video game. But considering the plot of Suzanne Collins' books, designers must balance the series' graphic fight scenes with its PG-13 audience.
For God sakes no, we all saw what Transformers was like, Lost, Saw and Terminator Salvation. There plenty of more God awful ones but those were the only ones that came to mind. Keep it a book and movie and that's it.
yeeeah i dont want this to be looked at as twilight -_-. already bad enough people think this is just battle royal.
yeah i hate when people say that... battle royal wasnt the first book/movie to come up with that idea. i could say battle royal is just another running man......
Im sorry for my ignorance but... This isnt based off of battle royal?
go watch the episode simpsons did it on south park, they pretty much sum up this whole deal with similar ideas....
Anyone ever read "the most dangerous game" :)
The most dangerous game. That's the first thing i thought of. Such a good story.
"He had never slept in a better bed, Rainsford decided."
imagine if naughty dogs makes it? i'll be pretty cool.
I've been wanting game for Battle Royal since I first saw it. It could be great. A huge island like Far Cry, with persistent enemies that dont just load in when you come along. You have to find food and water, you can set traps, form alliances, double cross friends. Use guns or just melee weapons. Plus lots of fan service. Oh well, I can dream.
Yeah, but I'd say the problem would be that a game that focuses on survival techniques first and foremost would be an insanely niche genre. Gameplay would ideally be slower-paced, focusing upon survival more than slaughter, probably taking the Snake Eater formula of eating/injury treatment and increasing it. Unfortunately, for a movie tie-in, they'll likely go for some crappy action-oriented mess, and lord knows they can't show or do much more than imply violence towards children in a video game, or the media will host a lovely little shitstorm.
Bump it to an M/18 rated game. This SCREAMS gore :D
Haven't seen the film but I heard that it wasn't very gory in order to give it a low classification. A game would almost certainly be made in the same manner as the film with little gore to attract the audience that enjoyed the film.
the book is pretty gorey with Childrens Limbs (like age 4+) splatting everywhere, Peoples skins melting off their body up until their bones, people getting skulls crushed, blistered to death, intestines hanging out while still fighting.......yeeeaaahhh, aslong as the game is based off the book its fine :P
Don't do it. Just don't.
There is a game on the Apple app store
Not really possible since you don't fight the enemy until the third book.
There's usually bad movie tie Ins.
Great book? It's a children's book for crying out loud. It's good for small children.
lol, only you would read this book to a small child.
From The New York Times "Notable Children's Book of 2008"
Watched the film. What a crock of shit. I then read the book fantastic don't make Boyce any worst with a game
