im really looking forward to Halo and Silent Hill.
There have been quite a few games to movie adaptions. The only one that I can think that was decent was the Tomb Raider series. The recent release Doom, was pretty much panned by the critics. Super Mario Bros was a terrible movie along with the fighting genres Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter.
One video game to movie that might actually be good would be Half-Life. The plotline is pretty good and the game pretty much played out like a movie.
Mortal Kombat 1 was quite decent while Mortal kombat 2 royally sucked.IMDB says Mortal Kombat 3 is in pipeline.
While I admit that Mario Bros was an awful movie, I do actually enjoy that it made the most out of a difficult subject. Let's face it, there is no way to do the Mushroom Kingdom filmic justice. It was designed to be a game; it will always be a game.
There is simply no way to translate Goombas, Fire Flowers, and Yoshis onto film, and they did a remarkable job of creating a world in which those things existed even if only in name.
That said, I still haven't seen a good Game-Movie transition. Even Halflife seems difficult and it may be the easiest that anyone has proposed. I personally am surprised that no one has tried to make a movie based on movie inspired games like Castlevania or Prince of Persia.
The easiest Game to be converted into a movie would be Max Payne. It was made more like a movie......so many cut scenes .
People liked Doom apparently. Still gotta see it myself
wouldnt metal gear solid be perfect? i mean, the "games" already are movies.
anyway, i have yet to see a good movie made from a game. but i doubt there will ever be one.
