hi there,

Im new here and I wanted to know what people thought about games being turned into films.

I read the other posts about Uwe Boll and I can tell you people dont like him.

I would like to know what other games you would like to see as films and who would you get to direct.

There is this old thread of zombies which I found most related to this, its soley dedicated though to games of movies by Rockstar games...

I see it is open now. Good man.

I personally would like to work on Half life, the script practically writes itself and it would make a great production.

Or would people like to see a Hitman movie?

Hitman is cool.

Welcome, Boll, we are searching through the threads to see if there is any other similar thread, but so far, it should be OK. Perhaps u, I mean somebody could make one of Jet Set Willy, that would rock my world.

Yeah man. Jet Set Willy would be fantastic.

Cast Jackie Chan in the lead role.

That would be great.

:D

Games I like most are heavy on the story side so they would probably suffer from the same problems like adaptions of popular books.

But they left out my favourite part, whine, whine, bitch bitch...

Come to think of it Broken Sword could be mde into a good one I think

I would pay serious money for MONOPOLY: THE MOTION PICTURE.

"Welcome to the Boardwalk Hotel. That'll be $2000. Bitch."

Shit yes; also, I think Operation would make for great viewing.

I have always had a love of Hitman with the sneaking and killing. It would make an excellent movie.

I want to see Echo the Dolphin with Julia Roberts as the lead. Or Duck Hunt: the Movie with Julia Roberts as the hunted. Dick Cheney can play the beer swilling hunter.

Leisure Suit Larry would make an insanely funny R-rated CGI comedy. I mean... come on.

Keith Courage would be nice, if we are talking 16bit video games.

Which we are.

Now that I brought it up.

Oh, 16-Bit? Super Star Wars. It writes itself.

I think I might have to wait an entire lifetime for a Metroid movie. I would still really like to see Halo made, and made well. Is Uwe still available for that one?

Rampage! Big old CGI graphics, loads of damage and a negligable story. Thats the way to do it! All it is is us against them.

So simple...so perfect....How about them apples?

Shit, give me a Berserker movie please!

PostPosted: Fri Dec 29, 2006 4:02 pm

Rampage sounds like fun.

Halo is already taken by studios and will become a film. Last I heard was that Peter Jackson was connected with it then it went quiet.

There are some good ideas up there, I like those.

I think we have about a billion TV shows covering that game already.

So now im confused and all.....or are you? If you confused me, then your not confused but perhaps everyone is confused like me. If your confused, then im not confused, only you. Which one of us is confused? Anyway, monsters would be more fun on paper. On film, its AVP=monsters= :cry: . Im just so lost and confused and dazed and eccentric....yet peaceful.

Final Fantasy: Advent Children was all right. Fantastic looking graphics and camera moves. I admit the story is a little weak, but I did really buy it for that.

What about Oblivion? Thats a good game and it would make an excellent film. Epic one too, like 10 commandments or something.

Lots of fighting, great story and fantastic scenes.

Bubble Bobble may be worth looking into...

A raw and bloody Bubble bobble... Like how i remember it....

Streets of rage would be cool...
