I'm still patiently waiting for the day when Hollywood realizes that movie adaptations of games just aren't worth it anymore.

I suppose this proves I'll be waiting even longer than I thought.

Oh come on after my favourite movie of all time, Wing Commander, why wouldn't they make more game-based movies.
It just can't fail!

Movie adaptations of games and vice versa are only failing because they are developed seperately and at different times. If both were developed at the same time, and the teams worked very closely with each other, maybe sharing the same story writer, it could very well be a WINNER.

So dividing attention and resources across two different mediums is the recipe for success?

I have to disagree. :/

Perhaps not dividing attention and resources, but making sure that both the movie and game complement each other, perhaps both telling different parts of the same story, making sure identifiable characters can be found in both the game and the movie. I really think its possible; having a good movie game and vice versa.

You can't have a good movie of a game.  That would implode the universe.

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Batman: Arkham Asylum has shown the world that one can have a fantastic game based on a comic book series.  Who knows what other wonders the future may hold.

Mortal Kombat was good :D

As was the Street Fighter ANIMATED movie. (heard the live action one was not so hot)

AVP, though lacking very much in plot, was highly entertaining.

Well AVP is more a comic book movie.
They're not bad but I dislike them for the massive liberties they use with continuity (specifically alien incubation and growth periods).

Very true, but why oh why did they have to make that abomination AVP 2  :confused: :confused: :confused:
Also I would love to see a movie of the X series. Dunno how it would work but I think it could be done :)

AVP2... Urghhh...

 
Am I the only one who thought AVP2 was better than the first?

Yes, definitely, though they both sucked hard, AVP 2 wasn't even a good watch. Talking of rubbish game movies, has anyone seen doom?

Hey speaking of movies that I sort of enjoyed. I got the DVD on my shelf right now :D

My biggest peeve with Doom is that they changed the story from supernatural to scientific though.

So.

I believe that the combined ensemble of District 9, Halo 3: Landfall, and the Halo 3 'We Are ODST' trailer that came out yesterday proves that a Halo movie could be excellent.

Yeah a Halo movie would be very cool. Also, and I think I have made this point elsewhere, what does everyone think about a Freespace movie. I know it has probably been brought up before, but it would be great, especially with modern CGI.
