Well with the upcoming release of Hitman, which doesn't look half bad. What do you think would be the best video game to be made into a movie, and actually be good.

Halo is a great game, but I think Gears of War is more badazz!! Would make a great sci-fi action movie.

Gears of War would definitly be my choice. I think God of War would be a cool movie too, but my pick is Gears of War.

I had to go with Halo although gears would be an awesome movie.

All i know is they better have someone totally badass play Master Chief

Samuel L. Jackson definitly. "I'm sick of these muthaf***ing brutes on this muthaf***ing Pelican!"




I'm not a big Halo fan, but I would totally watch the Halo movie if they had Samuel Jackson play Master Chief.

i'd say gears of war and halo but this month hitman is comming to the big screen. doom was pretty ok as a game but better when it was a movie.

God of War would be a great flick, the special effects and creatures would be top notch.

no doubt the first metal gear solid movie, if done right, would be the best film of the year. its practically a movie in itself.

with more detail in the story, but it'll be great to see the colossus in the big screen

I believe most games today don't make good movies.It's not because the games are weak in terms of a story,it's because games are a whole other medium all together.It's like reading a book,then watching a movie based on that book.As good as Jurrassic Park the movie was,it was nowere near the calibur of Michaele Critons book.

I think the same can be said in terms of video games.Games absorb you into a world were you are in control of the action.You can play todays average game at least 12 hours before you complete it.Try to jumble all that into an 1hour 35 minute movie and your going to lose some of the "magic" which originaly inticed you to play the game in the first place.

I'm not against movies based off of video games.I just think fans need to to keep their expectations a little low.

You realy think a Metal Gear movie is going to rival MGS or Sons of Liberty or Snake Eater?Probably not.

But here's hoping they give it a damn good shot.

Considering the "success" of the original Double Dragon film, I'd say no. lol

Katamari Damacy. Best movie ever. Godzilla? Weak. King Kong? Puny. Rocky Balboa? Old. Giant Rolling Ball of Doom? Purely amazing.

You know what I have no idea what anyone else has written on here for i just pressed reply cause i had this thought in my mind and buddey man to do 100% totally agree with you, really I think Hitman should be made a video game of. Dude so many aspects you can exploit out of the character its crazy. Have a bald Edward Norton have the role too, would make an insane movie I think...

The first Battletoads is a far better game.
only problem is you can get to the level with the jet skis b4 you get owned and there is no save option.

Super Mario: could have been a lot better.Added a lot of changes and changed a lot of the characters around.Could make a great remake but don't set any of it in the real world.Maybe would make a good Computer Animated Movie. 3/10

Double Dragon:Had a few interesting moments,but didn't live up to the legend of the original game.2/10

House of the Dead: it was very cheesy.Anything buy Uwe Bowell is though.Their is a fine art of being cheesy and this movie perfectly captured that.However,cheesy is cheesy,and I feel as if House of the Dead is a cult classic in the making.While not great,it was intertaining. 5/10
Never saw the second one.

Dead or Alive:Haven't seen it

Resident Evil Franchise: 1 and 2 were luke warm and had very little to do with the game that changed the world of gaming forever.4/10
Didn't see the 3rd one.

Tomb Raider 1 & 2: One was decent,but became extreamley lack luster after the first half hour.5/10
Didn't watch the second one.

Alone in the Dark 1 & 2: Sucked.Flat out. 1/10
Didn't watch the second one.

Bloodrayne: didn't bother watching

Mortal Kombat 1 & 2:I would say the first MK movie is the best video game turned movie ever made.8 out of 10.the second one was terrible. 2/10

Street Fighter:the best part was the big speech Van Dam gave before the big battle.M Bison was great,although very two dimensional.Had a few funny moments. 4 1/2 out of 10.

Gears of War would make for a good action movie, obviously trying to tell a story which will (eventually) arc over 3 games in one movie is pointless as it just wouldnt fit, but maybe if they focused on a new story, smaller in scale, within the GOW universe.

A couple of ideas they could use;

A special ops team striking out a prominant Locust installion
A band of civileans trying to get to a government safety camp
a group of soldiers trying to push back the locust in a particular important area

The GOW world allows for loads of cool things to be thrown in, such as Brumaks, appearances by high level Locust, loads of amazing set pieces. They could film it with the kind of shakey "real war" camera work they did in the game, so the audience feels like a soldiers amongst the group, rather than an invincible onlooker. Could be amazing.

for the most part i agree. but i loved the double dragon and mario movies as a kid so i'll still kick back and watch them if they're on. plus they have the whole so bad that it's good quality going, unlike the bloodraynes and tomb raiders of today that have no excuse for sucking after all the money pumped into them. if you're gonna make a game movie, at least have the sence to under fund it so that we can all laugh at it for its cheese factor and turn it into a cult classic.
