I make no secret of the fact that I would love to see Namco's "Time Crisis" series of arcade and PS2/PS3 FPS games be made into a movie. Seems someone finally got the idea:

I think there are a lot of great game to movie ideas, but the final products all lack.

In attempt to break it down,

A good game is a good game for a reason and thus does not translate into a good movie because games and movies are different in terms of how the stories are delivered (on many scales).

This the same reason why good movies are usually not made into great games without severe alteration and/or completely removing the story.

Honestly I think the best game to movie translation will be based on a game that is either largely unknown or not good as a game and loosely based at that. The problem is, the popularity of a game title is primarily the selling point so I don't see it happening OR the movie is so loosely based on the game, it's not really a true game to movie translation.

1. Zelda
2. Final Fantasy 7 Live action
3. Metal Gear
4.Tecmo's deception
5. Knights of the Old republic would have made an awesome movie for Star Wars. Better than the last 3 we have gotten anyways.
