    I think GTA: San Andreas could make a great flick. You pull out the player freedom and mindless murdering and cop killing and you've got a great plot about struggling to survive, and make your neighborhood safe through power of your gang while trying to dispose of the corrupt officer tenpenny. Underdog story and organized crime, like peanutbutter and jelly.

    This is bizarre, but I have always wanted to see a space opera miniseries based in the 'Freespace' universe. Television CGI effects are at the point where it would be economically feasible (see Battlestar Galactica), and the thought of a meaty, dramatic war series between the Shivans and the (eventual) Terran-Vasudan gives me the shudders.

    I'd say To the Moon because it's beautiful story of sadness and humor would mix perfectly with Inception level movie effects, I would also love to see an English actor play Dr. Watts and perform the NASA school presentation word for word, it would keep me laughing for the rest of the movie.

    I know it isn't released yet, or even sufficient info on the game is really available, but everything I've seen of Watch Dogs makes me believe it would be a fantastic cyber-punk spy thriller. Just a James Bond thrown in a time machine to sci-fi future makes me believe it would possibly be the greatest summer blockbuster of all time.

    WELL, i know its (allegedly) being made, but BioShock has incredible potential to make an excellent film. Back when we knew nothing of BioShock 2, and speculation ran rampant, most thought they'd make a prequel about the fall of Rapture. I'm glad they didn't, since that would make for a completely different game from the original BioShock. HOWEVER, the occasional violence and slowly building civil unrest referred to in the series would be make for a great adaptation. We fans of the world of Rapture want more of the Fall. A video game can't do that competently. By using film to expand the BioShock universe, making the plot drama and character-driven, rather than driven by survival, we can get that experience without compromising he unquestionable quality that we have come to know. Oh, and i want to win this contest so i can give this game to my friend for her birthday. Sadly, i cannot afford to buy a $35 DS game :(

    Not Halo, because as Forward Unto Dawn is showing on YouTube right now, the Halo universe would almost fit into a Battlestar Glactica style tv show better. Instead, I would prefer something in the Mass Effect universe, not the games themselves, I feel we at the players were so involved in the little details of the story that we each had a different experience and would feel disjointed if it was told in movie form, as it would not be our story most likely. That universe though is amazing and deep and I would love to have a movie somewhere in it. Just a movie about the Skylian Blitz or something would be pretty awesome.
  • Blaze38 - October 21, 2012 9:20 p.m.

    The Darkness would be my choice. When the Darkness 2 was anounced I thought to myself "Well this looks pretty cool but I should probably go play the first one." I have never fell in love with a game harder than this! The game literally opens like a movie with a "What the F--k is going on" chase scene and you are thrown in from there. Futhermore now only does every character in the story feel important but the main character has DEMON SNAKES THAT COME OUT OF HIS BACK! The Darkness was truly a story that my heart was all in for from the begining. From his Monologues in the loading screens to tearing people apart to find his one true love, Jackie Estacato is the movie badass waiting to step in.

    Oh man, I have the best Idea ever for this. I think blaster Master for the NES. Why? Because I think one problem is games take themselves too seriously. I'm thinking a movie like land of the lost. Just using absurd subject matter and add humor and awareness of the silliness. I imagine a high action high special effects comedy. Partially I Just want this done because I want to see the set up done in movie form. I want a explanation of how you build up such a highly deep connection with a pet frog that you'd jump down a massive hole after it, pretty much to your death. Also I want the set up on how the fuck a giant box that is radioactive and clearly marked ended up in a kids backyard in suburbia. Finally I'd have all those questions I had as a kid answered. How an entire world under a house came to be. Who leaves their keys in a billion dollar tank more advanced then any currently existing tank. I Just want closure in my childhood. It could just combine tons of gamer inside jokes with high action and goofy dialogue. I always felt the postal movie was onto something. If only it was done by someone competent.

    A live action Pokemon movie, similar to that of Pokemon Apokelypse.
  • Shadowraichu - October 21, 2012 1:12 p.m.

    Portal 2 would be my answer, I think hearing chell and GLaDOS banter back and forth would be interesting, a rediculously complex plot that only makes sense after repeat viewings, and maybe a subplot of evil robotic birds created by Black Mesa to mess ith GLaDOS, but alas this will never happen unless Valve makes their own moves company. Or even better a Pokémon movie!......wait, they made 13 and most of them suck.
  • F4G1TR0N - October 21, 2012 6:58 a.m.

    Perhaps any on the Fire Emblems, I would love to see one based on the first one though. Its got what an epic movie needs, an epic quest, meaningful characters and relationships, as well as a crazy final fight. It could easily be done in separate movies, having Lynn's saga one movie, going for each legendary weapon could be its own movie, and then the final boss. It could easily be an amazing movie.
  • julian-watkins - October 20, 2012 11:12 p.m.

    I would love to see a Max Payne and a Hitman movie done right. Both film versions that already exist start out right on the money and then just completely fall apart. Same thing for Resident Evil and Silent Hill. Hell, basically a better, more deserving and faithful rendition of every video game movie made thus far.
  • julian-watkins - October 20, 2012 11:08 p.m.

    On an episode of Breaking Bad, Jesse Pinkman is playing Rage (pre-release) on an Xbox 360, using a light gun. This is especially egregious since Vince Gilligan is know as a stickler for details.
  • JMarsella09 - October 20, 2012 6:45 p.m.

    Hmm... Tough... Usually game movies can be ruined if they focus too much on replicating the game itself. Why is Resident Evil fun to watch, because it completely ignores the creepy slow nature of the original games. So how about a game where gameplay is unimportant. Catherine comes to mind with its great plot, or hell Rule of Rose. Anyone remember that one? Terrible, terrible game, but with an amazing story.
  • 8bitBaby - October 20, 2012 12:12 p.m.

    why does it have to be a movie? why can't it be a high end HBO series like ASOIAF? cause I would pick mass effect, but most video games could only be done right as a series. what's the point? video games have so much to offer that a single movie couldn't offer or even a series. interactivity alone trumps all other media that holds you hostage for the duration of the story. okay fine... The Another world. I mean c'mon it's already halfway to being a studio Ghibli film. I would love to get some more crazy fantasy films from Miyazaki and the gang. and this game looks ripe for the picking.
  • StoneDreadnaught - October 20, 2012 12:11 p.m.

    Bayonetta as done by Brian Lee O'Maley and Joss Wheton. Joss would direct the kick-ass, spectacular fight scenes with Brian working to weave in the plethora of video game references, and both of them making the writing fantastically cheesy and fun.
  • ultimatepunchrod - October 20, 2012 10:30 a.m.

    I would really like to see Ninja Gaiden Σ as a movie, but don't change a damn thing. I want a moron with white hair beating the hell out of our hero with nunchaku for 20 minutes only to say, "Lol jk. We're buddies and I need your help to save our city." Then I want a potential ally, instead of helping Ryu mow down the non stop barrage of enemies, just throw helpful hints about making sure to do obvious things with little pink flowers attached to shuriken. Then I want a stupid looking, blonde haired dominatrix that is the very definition of objectification of women (bouncing boobs included) run around while the director pretends the audience should respect her as a warrior (or just as a person in general). Finally, I want a bunch of non sequitur moments in which Ryu falls down a manhole in a modern city into a ruined sewer system that contains the bones of an ancient dragon that Ryu has to fight...for some reason. But most of all, I just want Ryu to die over and over again, and the actor playing him to break character and scream about how ridiculous each of the above situations are and quit half way through the movie; then he'd come back a few hours later and try to convince himself that it's totally worth it to keep going even though trophy support won't be integrated until the sequel.
