    There are boards, and boards, and boards... and boards... filled with thousands of posts, debating how his precious "Insert videogame name here" will be a perfect movie... there is no "perfect videogame movie" and never will be...

    Wow would be a great choice and a surefire box office slam dunk with even mildly competent studios at the helm. Nobody says you have to tell the entire game's story and all of it's expansions in one shot. Hell, you could focus it on the Lich King and leave it at that. plus it's a setting ripe for sequels. It's a franchise, easily, and I say that as someone who is definitely not a fan and frankly indifferent to the entire game and genre (traditional MMO).

    I dont really think assassins creed would make a good movie but their doing it anyway

    I can't agree more with NEVER wanting a Metal Gear movie, but I think Shadow of the Colossus could work. In the game they briefly explore why Wander is on this quest and that the people who killed Mono are trying to stop him, a movie could flash back to this plot between each colossus (probably boiled do to four) then show us the fights on a screen big enough to convey their size that you can't get at home. The size and sound (love te soundtrack) of a movie theater are really what attract me to the idea of a SOTC movie.

    Dark Souls and Demon's Souls would make awful films - they're too, well, gamey to be made into films. Doubt anyone would ever try, but you never know with Hollywood...

    Mega Man Zelda (would be awful) Street Fighter (oh they did it...) Final Fantasy VII These would make a lot worse on screen than these mentioned in the article.

    Have you ever watched the megaman or Zelda fan films? They can be good, Hollywood just doesn't know how to do it

    I once heard an argument against ANY video game film, especially the most cinematic ones like Metal Gear Solid, because since they draw heavy inspiration from films, a film based on a video game inspired by a film would just be even more redundant and derivative.

    The far cry movie actually was pretty good as far is Uwe Boll movies go. The guy catches a lot of flack but all in all his movies are good if you go in them expecting dumb fun. Kinda like those cheesy scifi movies :D

    If I could just ask Mr. Cooper to stand aside for a moment... just one moment... Now, Mr. Cooper, can I ask you a question? Just HOW much do you know about Warcraft lore? Let's not even bother with the fact that the Warcraft movie isn't even based on World of Warcraft. Worgen? Supported by pre-wow lore. Draenei? Supported by pre-wow lore. Pandaren? Though they were initially meant as a joke, were still part of pre-wow lore. So, I ask you again Mr. Cooper, just how much do you think is actually "cooked up" on the spot to justify expansions and content?

    It's wow lore so I laughed. Sorry, I just don't like wow.
  • Polarzombies - February 5, 2013 2:43 p.m.

    Far Cry was already turned into a movie.
  • Bloodstorm - February 5, 2013 9:32 p.m.

    Yeah, that was the joke....

    What are you talking about? MGS4 WAS an interactive movie.
  • archnite - February 6, 2013 11:57 a.m.

    Only during the Mission Briefing segment where you controlled Mk II while the scene was acted out. The rest of the time it was Gameplay-cutscene, GP, CS...ect. Like every modern game, just more like GP, CS,CS,CS,CS GP. I find the gameplay to be my favroite in the series, with PW, a close second.
  • slimjim441 - February 6, 2013 10:30 p.m.

    Don't get me wrong. I love the cinematics of MGS4. It's pretty much the best game ever, but nonetheless, it is still about a 3:1 ratio of cutscenes to gameplay. There's like 15h of cutscenes altogether. It's amazing.

    Don't they aready have 2 house of the dead movies? The first take place on an island party spot and the other one was on a college campus. I think Rob Zombie directed them.
  • archnite - February 6, 2013 11:57 a.m.

    So you just read the slide titles huh.
  • lancevance821 - February 4, 2013 10:07 p.m.

    I am still praying for a great Castlevania movie. Not web series But real movie!!!!! It will prob suck though.
  • doominatorx6 - February 4, 2013 7:47 p.m.

    Far Cry wasn't released in North America because it's a common fact that everyone here hates Uwe Boll with every inch of their body. I read somewhere that his films are "better appreciated" in Europe. And I also heard that Far Cry was one of his better ones. But hey, it's Uwe Boll so my expectations are already rock bottom.
