Ever wonder why your favorite video game franchises never make it in the box office? One of Gamer Limits contributors discusses his thoughts on why Hollywood continues to fail at translating video games into film.
Video game movies? no thank you.
some movies would be awesome based on video games metal gear solid 4 had over 10 hours of cutscenes so that could be a long a$$ movie if it was in theatres i would definatley watch it
Yea true man! I'm talking about ones that are out now. MGS with Christian Bale - amazing.... Either way the only VG movie I like is Mortal Kombat.
actually the hitman movie was pretty decent it even got a good review from roger ebert I think
The only good game movies are the Resident Evil ones. Maybe Silent Hill.
Agreed RE wasn't too bad.
i loved Super Mario Bros movie! wait-- that was crap. never mind.
Heh. Super Mario Bros. movie was pathetic. But hilarious.
Silent Hill That's it.
i agree...but it should have been a little more...i cant tell you what should have been "more" but something else was missing.
Ughh…they already ruined the Fatal Fury/King of Fighters series with horrible anime movies. I’m interested in Bioshock and MGS, but Gears of War will probably be crap.
Really?! I liked the Geese KOF OVA but the Krauser one was crap.
Silent Hill was best
honestly i said this b4 and i'll say it again resident Evil series is probably the only one that was closest to the storyline of the game & definetly my fav of the VG movies btw watever happen to that Halo movie that kept getting canned??? is it even being made anymore?
Some transitions simple should not be made.
I hated most VG movies.
One big problem with Hollywood is the fact that they keep picking the most random game ever to adapt. Warner Bros is making an adaption of Lost Planet, now Lost Planet is a great game and all, but I can think of like a dozen other games with better stories and would be better fit for film. And don't even get me started with Lionsgate getting the movie rights to Kane and Lynch (why the hell would they get rights to one of the worst games this generation?). Fox just released Street Fighter, based off a FIGHTING game where the story doesn't matter. I really don't have much to say except that the movie studios need to get some common sense
Video games and movies, Bad either way you look at it
