That is not old.

Eleven years man, since the first UT.

This I agree with, the gameworld offers something that could easily be turned into a good movie with only a backstory, or just a different perspective to the events from either Blood Omen, or any other part of the series.

I did mention Legacy of Kain which includes Blood Omen, but I think the whole story should be done and not just one part of it.

Like I said, a backstory, a sidestory, maybe even a continuation, Legacy of Kain has a world set up, just needs someone to notice that.

Legacy of Kain would be a badass movie, as long as it focuses on fucked up zombie vampire guy. Cause we already have old vampire movies [underworld]

If you kiddies knew anything about a video game's history, you would know which ones were actually based on movies (at least the characters), not the other way around.

Anyway, I figure some of the older Nintendo games would make some good (kids) movies (they're all so cartoony anyway), but I wouldn't want to see my childhood video game memories be butchered like that (Street Fighter, Mario Bros., etc...).

Perfect Dark is basically 007 with a female lead.

Escape from New York was one of Kurt Russel's best roles. Behind Stargate and Big Trouble in Little China (his best movie ever).

Well, well, well...
lets see...

A Halo movie has been in the minds of many fans of the game (me included) ever since it first came to Xbox. http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/Halo_(Film) Read the timeline to see what's up with the Halo film and why its not likely to come up in quite a while.

As for those looking for a Gears of War movie.
It was announced in 2005 that there was one underway right after the game came out, but it was said it would come out in 2009. Nothing has been said and its still in "Production" supposedly. Whomever is making it has kept things pretty *hush hush* about it.

And last but not least.
I wish Mass effect to be made into a movie and though it has been already announced, I have to wait till 2012 to see it. IF it comes out. Though it would be hard to make one that pleases every player of the game due the game's multi-path nature based also on the evil/good choices.


So in short:
Halo
Gears of War
Mass Effect
and maybe Zelda, but I have no info on that.

That might be interesting. Shenmue could provide an interesting story. It would be similar to the Jet Li movie fearless.

Length of posts are fine. Very few people mind reading large amounts of text.

Here's a little bit more about the Gears movie progress: http://gearsofwar.wikia.com/wiki/Gears_ ... %28film%29

Wow Thanks dude!

Haven't read anything from this thing in a while.
And judging from what I just read I can tell this movie is off to a bad start.
Missing on their original date, scaling money down, losing their director, and changing the writer?

Thing about making video-games into movies is that much is at stake, some games are hard to fit into one movie. One thing can take everything else down, hence the reason why Halo hasn't even been started. Waaaay to big to ruin something like Halo, people don't wanna risk it.

I don't think it'll work.
It's already a movie when you're playing it.
