I think Dead to Rights Retribution would make a good movie.

After mounths of rigorous trials and conducted research I have finally come to the conclusion that Modern Warfare 2 can go SUCK IT. (Note to self, change signature..... I probably could have changed it by now, but it's funny being all meta and self aware.)

@ Rowby: Oh they're going to do a Halo movie. It might take them a while, but its too big of a prize to ignore.

I'd like to see a Dragon Age movie, or a COD MW movie.
Stufflikehearts - He is a Sith Lord. I love Blood Lord :3
Jeffffey - Blood, you look at the information someone says, look over what really happened, and reply in a way that makes them realize what they were really thinking.
Light10s - Blood Lord! Your avatars are becoming more epic. You make me feel like getting on all fours and submitting my loyalty and obedience to you.
Fievel - Numerous campaigns and conquests, countless bodies decaying after the abandonment of victorious battlefields. Such is the life of Blood Lord.
Dusk_Imp - Blood Lord is like a celebrity here. Everything he does is pure awesome. ALL HAIL BLOOD LORD
Doctress Who - Why couldn't there be a Blood Lord in every forum? It would make life so much easier.

Yeah, I wouldn't mind seeing that. Besies reading all of the KotoR comics.

I know that. But I wouldn't be here around that time or wouldn't have time to check on it.

Didn't Michael Barnes made a machinima movie with MW and MW2?

Well with any game. There has to be 3 things that will make it a good candidate for turning into a movie.

The first is that it has a coherent and well written story. Crap writing for a game will make for crap writing for a movie. No open ended games, multiple endings and such are fine but the game has to have an obvious start an obvious middle and an end.

The second is that the capabilities of the characters and villains are possible while looking realistic.

Lastly the game has to have a wide player base. Sorry but if nobody has heard of the game it will be hard to convince them to go to the movie.

Bioware games mostly fall into these categories so as long as they keep away from Uwe Boll they should be fine on Mass Effect and Dragon Age.

Other games to consider.

Legacy of Kain, because vampires are in these days.

Diablo 2 could be interesting but it may not have enough content to satisfy.

I liked the Silent Hill movie and I think that Silent Hill the room could be a neat movie.

From a realistic perspective it needs to be a movie that has some kind of appeal to everyone. Sci-fi and fantasy are usually the best options when it comes to appeal. So Halo, any Bioware game, and Bioshock for me.

Killzone
Bomberman (in my opinion, I like to see the bomber dude saving his world...again)
God Of War
Gears Of War

True Crime and GTA would literally be like any other movie dealing with cops and/or mobsters. GTA might be succesful, but it would only be called GTA for the appeal.

Idk. John Woo's films were cop based movies, right?

John Woo started in the film industry didn't he? He was one of the first to do all this slow mo, crazy flying potatoes and doves action. THEN he moved on to make a video game, which I heard didn't sell as well as they expected since there were already games with slow motion gun fighting out there.

Just as I was reading this thread, I heard a Dead Space movie was under way, which is probably old news, but whatever.

The game itself was like a movie, nothing bad can come of this. Surely.

Well GTA would pretty much be Scarface except it would be with stolen cars instead of drugs. I like bioshock though. It's odd enough that it could be done well without breaking the bank.

But what else is there to tell? We already saw "the movie" so unless you make it into a whole new story with a whole new twist, it's pointless.

Perhaps, but to be fair Heavy Rain could actually be a good movie by itself without relying on the video game fan base. Make it like Sin City all Gritty and shit.

Hey, that's actually a pretty good idea. Rat man could make a lead character, explaining what happened before the first game.
