    I feel like half of these will be cancelled

    There are a lot of favourites in here, so here's hoping at least one decent movie is coming out and starts it decently... I'm looking at you, Warcraft!

    As long as characters have the right look and voice i'm open for some of them. Though it would be hilarious to hear gilbert gottfried scream that this is his favorite store on the citadel. And I think they had the right idea with the mass effect books, leave shepard out of it, there are just to many variables, to many ways to get it wrong.

    in 10 years time when superhero movies are commonplace, i feel there will be a big surge in computer game movies. Over time gaming is becoming increasingly more accepted and part of society, and there are plenty of stories to mine. Just need a few more stand out gaming movies and a space in the film industry that needs to be filled?

    Oh come on guys, we knew from day one what the Ratchet movie was gonna be about. You're supposed to be "journalists," do some more research lol. They said day one it was the origin story, effectively retelling the first game but with elements of later games. And then a week later we got confirmation that Nefarious would make an appearance in some way. Now if you'd said we knew nothing about the R&C 2015 game based on a similar plot to the movie, yeah, you'd be right. We just know that it exists. Of that list I'm only confident in a few of the films there. I'd be scared of the Ratchet one if Insomniac wasn't taking active steps to ensure it's up to their standards. I AM scared of the Sly one because we have nothing of that sort there. I'm most scared of a rumored Jak one because my god Jak has one of the most convoluted hole-filled stories I've ever seen (thanks entirely to Jak II).

    I don't think any game story that relies on player interaction will be as powerful in movie form, that's why I don't want to see a Spec Ops: The Line or Heavy Rain movie. Spec Ops wouldn't make you feel nearly as bleak and Heavy Rain would just be another thriller. I think the chosen games should be grounded in reality in some way like The Last of Us or Deus Ex which can remove the gameplay elements in the movie adaptation. Alternatively, the film could go fully stylised and self aware in a style similar to Scott Pilgrim. That's why I think a Shadows of the Damned movie could be really funny. I also think it would be interesting to see a Stanley Parable movie which comments on film tropes instead of game tropes.

    Each page turn I cringed a bit more and more

    Why? I have my reasons, but they have become tired arguments that I'm just spinning into new arguments do to staleness.

    Personally (unless they maintain the same animation) I just don't like the idea of games being movies. Maybe cause of previous crappy ones we've had before left bad tastes in my mouth, idk
  • Vonter - September 18, 2014 9:40 a.m.

    This could go two ways, either retread things the games did well (which could be boring since it'll not be surprising to a person that has already played the game), or it is a reinterpretation, though chances are they don't want to mess with the existing fanbase changing too much the base story.

    And maybe 2 of of those will ever see daylight...
  • Wolfen2k7 - September 17, 2014 5:06 a.m.

    I'm all for Dantes inferno.
  • Numberwang - September 17, 2014 2:17 a.m.

    I really hope most of these don't get made
  • Blaze38 - September 16, 2014 10:20 p.m.

    What? No Darkness movie? I thought I heard it being anounced ages ago? A movie based on the first game would be killer.
  • homestar99 - September 16, 2014 9:29 p.m.

    My wallet just started crying for its' empty future.
  • TurkeyOnRye - September 16, 2014 7:46 p.m.

    Didn't the Peter Jackson/Neil Blomkamp Halo movie turn into District 9 when things didn't work out?
  • hu-deegan - September 16, 2014 4:48 p.m.

    I wish Armored Core would get a film....there's so much potential there....
  • Outofmanyone - September 16, 2014 4:16 p.m.

    Never realized there was so many video game movie projects being thrown around. Heavy Rain is pretty much a film already.. "I just hope they get the accents right. We Philadelphians don't sound like that" Damn straight we don't ;)

    At least they've resolved the question of who would play Snake in the MGS movie. "CHLOE GET DOWN!!!"
