Re: Movie adaptations: why do they suck?
How long did it take you to play through Bioshock? Wolfenstein (the original one)?
Fastest time I've got was 10 minutes. Because I've memorized all the levels. And I also finished the secret level too. :nod:

Yeah, Wolfenstein rawks.

My phraseology was poor. I meant that was the only one I liked.

Good.
for a second there, I feared I'll have to label you under the "persons who lost all of my respect for the rest of eternity" category.

Re: Movie adaptations: why do they suck?
OK, so I'm a couple posts late for the comments about an FS movie, but I just figured I'd post these two links:

The music in the first one is a little repetitive, but imagine how it would have turned out (the trailer, at least) if the guy could have used the whole version of the song.

The second one has some footage from Bladerunner interspersed.  I don't think it came out as good, though.

This year, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union Address occurred during the same week.  This is an ironic juxtaposition of events--one involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to a creature of little intelligence for prognostication, while the other involves a groundhog.

Re: Movie adaptations: why do they suck?
Max Pain hasn't be released yet where i come from. The previews make it look like the best movie adaptation ever created. I have seen many of the list, but they all suck.
Imagine awakening, and hearing the heartbeat of the galaxy for the first time.
It is like a cloud, a mist that drifts from living creature to creature, set in motion by currents and eddies.
It is the eye of the storm, the passions of all living things turned into energy, into a chorus.
It is the rising swell at the end of life, the promise of new territories and new blood, the call of new mysteries in the dark.

Well you can give marketing props for making it look good, but the critics are still panning it from what I've seen.

Re: Movie adaptations: why do they suck?
How strange is this? When a good game is adapted into a film, it's terrible, but when a good film is adapted into a game, the game's horrid.

It's popular.

Someone will want to make something quickly to cash off of the popularity.

Re: Movie adaptations: why do they suck?
Time.

How long did it take you to play through Bioshock? Wolfenstein (the original one)? Duke3D? Doom? And let's not even touch anything turn-based or RTS, which can last for days.

There's your answer. They don't compress.

Think thats bad, I remmeber hearing a rumor something about a Sims movie... Now theres a game that never really ends... imagine the movie  :shaking:

Re: Movie adaptations: why do they suck?
Well, there are plenty of crappy movies. Maybe these adaptations are just as crappy as they should, statistically.

Re: Movie adaptations: why do they suck?
The only time I saw the Mario movie was a quick glimpse while I was in a game stop. No goomba stomps :hopping:, a weird Bowser transforming thing :wtf:, and two sticks that acted like the proton packs from Ghostbusters :shaking:. Wasn't too impressed... :rolleyes: :no:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtMZKYnLg5c   (Yes, it's the real trailer)

I still prefer the live-action movie to the Super Show. Though that isn't saying much.
