With every blockbuster film being accompanied by a sub-standard game to tie in with its release, News24.com decided to have a look at several films that never got the video game treatment.
No no and no.
Yes to all these except bloodsport
Sin City would be a good one, District 9 maybe, the rest, heeeeeeellllllllllllllllll no.
Any Jackie Chan movie where it's a mixture of fighting (various forms) and using your environment to evade/avoid/trap others. Would of course include scenes of action on a bus, racing in cars, roller skating, and more.
Uwe Boll's Rampage would make a good Live/PSN title
It never gets mentioned but I'll say it again. BATTLE ROYAL ! Perfect game fodder.
As in the Japanese Battle Royal? That film is awesome, have you seen the sequel, what did you think?
Sequels all right. Tried to do too much over the top action, it lacked the premise and impact of the first movie.
DYNAMITE!!DYNAMITE!! I wish they would make a black dynamite game.
Only if the writing was top notch. Oh, and I would get to say the line "Hah! I threw that that sh*t before I walked into the room!"
Haha. The Equilibrium pic was awesome. I've seen tons of Pokemon memes, but that one's pretty awesome. Edit: That's entirely possible. And...is it so wrong to want an American Psycho game? With remastered Phil Collins hits? The only studio I'd trust with that game is Platinum.
I actually think that Equilibrium could be a good game. The Gun Kata can be a great fight mechanic, though I don't know which studio can pull it off in the game.
Those would be terrible games... ...unless Sony Santa Monica and Quantic Dream did 300/Sin City together. That would be so full of win!
*Pulls The Naked Gun out and watches it.*
I would use the word could instead of would.
Theses movies don't work with game universe.
None of the movies on that list would be good games though I would enjoy seeing the Sin City visual style in game form. Game I would like to see made; Pitch Black the game! I know that since it was releases, several games have embraced the idea of the light as a weapon (most recently Alan Wake) but I feel the very open world and the narrow light band would be stunning.
A Red Dawn based game would be nice.
a direct film to video game narration never worked, unless of course it's some over-the-top cgi film with no story at all what I'd prefer for any film to game adaptation is to set the game in the same universe, however with a different character and plot.
