Remember that Super Mario Bros. movie? Yeah, sorry for bringing that up. Remember that Halo movie that was being made? Yeah, we all wanted that. Travis Freese of Leviathyn.com lists five games that need movies.
I think a Metal Gear Solid movie would be interesting.
Unless Kojima wrote and directed it, with David Hayter as Snake, IMO it would be a steaming pile. Kojimas ideas and plots are way over the majority of Hollywood's head and it would just get massacred. Even if they got the perfect director on it, hearing any other voice after growing up for 14 years with Snake as David Hayter would be plain wrong.
If Kojima made a movie it would be 84hrs long. :D Sometimes I think I'd love it if they made a Mass Effect movie, but anytime they make a movie of based on something good, they just end up ruining it. Case in point: GI Joe... what was done to the franchise was blasphemous on so many levels.
1. HALF LIFE = (The Purchase Brothers have already made a couple Outstanding fan films that capture the true essence of HL, just give them a bigger budget) 2. STALKER = (Just film it in Pripyat and Chernobyl and fans would fill the theaters just to see their favorite Radiation Zone! Ridley Scott would make this Awesome) 3. ZELDA = (give it the Peter Jackson and let him do his thing, Easy Money, seriously Easy Money) 4. RED DEAD REDEMPTION = (Let Clint Eastwood direct it and have top notch character actors) 5. GRAND THEFT AUTO = (Jason Statham in the lead role, Oh wait they already made Crank and Crank 2!!!) 6. MASS EFFECT = (this one is Easy as it would just be the new Star Trek, I'm sure Michael Bay would get this one DARN) 7. UNCHARTED = (The One EVERYONE wants made as it would be the new Indiana Jones, use Mark Walhberg and us GAMERS will burn Hollywood down!) No HALO or METROID cause they would totally screw it up as the game depends so much on the main character and Hollywood would all of a sudden have Master chief or Samus falling in Love, have some lame sidekick character, or totally detract from the games but then again I can see them using Mila Jovovich as Samus!
where is metal gear? wtf that guy choosing red dead and dead space lol
choose hello kitty next time
Red Dead and Dead Space both have good storys so they won't be that bad if they were movies unless the directer make's the movie shitty.
Dead Space Issac Clarke - Joshua Jackson http://img2.timeinc.net/peo... ...Make it happen EA
He's an annoyingly handsome barsteward. I'd like to steal and wear his face. Good call though. I like Joshua Jackson in Fringe. He's no Walter Bishop though.
I see Walter Bishop like a less sane, older Otacon. When either of the above cry, you feel a manly tear brewing. Off topic, but when Sunny asks Otacon where Uncle Snake is, and he replies "snake had a hard life... he needs some time to be alone *wipes tears*" It shames me not to admit several manly tears flowed...
Heres my list of games that need movies 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Movies to games rarely works well, and it doesnt often work out well the other way around either. All i know is if my favourite game was on the big screen it would probably end up as a disappointment, so I'd rather they just left it.
Lol. I enjoyed that. :) I did enjoy that Doom movie. Urban's the man. :)
Glad you liked it :P Yeah there is the odd exception. I thought the silent hill movie was pretty good.
List needs more God of War.
Why is there no uncharted, I would prefer uncharted more than any game in that list.
I don't think any big games should be made into movies. Like Uncharted, MGS, Halo, etc.Movie adaptations of games rarely work, in most cases it would just tarnish the franchise.
Signed for a Halo Movie.
No to all of those but Red Dead. Does anyone HONESTLY think any of those games has enough dialogue, character development and hearty storytelling to warrant a feature length film? I sure as hell wouldn't want to watch Master Chief shoot alien midgets with Mohawks for 2 hours with the usual "SAVE THE WORLD PLZ" that is really only awesome when you're playing a game or when a self-aware movie pulls it off well.
1.- God Of War 2.- Metal Gear Solid 3.- Assassin's Creed 4.- Bioshock 5.- Red Dead Redemption Oh...I forgot Uncharted.
Duke Nukem needs a movie...
