View Full Version : Games that should be movies, Vice Versa


Ramsey

Should become Movies:
Halo 1/2 (It really does have a great storyline)
Snatcher
GTA: SA (also has a great storyline)

Should become games:
Chronicles of riddick (I know, its already made into one, but the whole series should stop being movies, Vin Diesal is a better videogame character than he is actual actor)



I'm kinda braindead at the moment...I can't think of any.


Post away your ideas.

Halo would be a great movie! Also Splinter Cell would be nice, along with D.X Invisible War and Prince of Persia (or lesure suit larry)

Doom (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0419706/)
Half Life would be an awesome movie.
Well considering GTA III/VC are more or less a movei already (Godfather,etc.) SA would be kind of good, I donno I have yet to play it.

I'm not too sure about San Andreas yet, but Vice City would definitely make a good film. Fallout and Fallout 2 would be great, too.

As for vice versa, I'd rather like to see Equilibrium made into a game, provided they could get the gun kata down well.

:eek: You saw it?

It was a good movie, yet, its budget is was low, I know they could have done better if given more money.


It would make an awesome game now that you mention it...darn.

It was worth seeing just for when our Cleric friend bursts into the kata. I liked it, but it's the kind of indulgent liking I usually reserve for B-movies.

Let's Chop Cats!
11-07-2004, 08:56 PM
That was a good movie, but it's hard to get that into gameplay. The closest I could see is the HL Mod The Specialist, which has Matrix like elements and such. Just no katana :(

Bartender
11-07-2004, 09:05 PM
The Specialists is fun, but the Matrix-y elements aren't very strong. Enter the Matrix was a good game, mostly for the combat system than story or anything, and I reckon, having made that, they should be able to rig up a fairly good representation of Equilibrium's kata.

FF7. Best storyline ever.

"FF: the Spirits Within" really spoilt it for me. The story was as boring as hell.

Metal Gear (Solid? I can't remember).

Kingdom Hearts. Though the disney characters might spoil it a bit.

Bartender
11-07-2004, 09:42 PM
I thought FF7 was being made into a film already? With it's actual storyline intact, something like the first time two FF products have been related.

Ramsey
11-07-2004, 09:43 PM
The first Metal Gear Solid would own as a movie. The second one is garbage (storyline wise) the gameplay was excellent though.

Not a direct copy of the game, but a sequel.

Cecillianne
11-07-2004, 09:52 PM
I'll shoot Squaresoft if it sequel sucks. FF7's storyline is honestly the best between 8, 9 and 10.

But 8 would make a good movie as well. <3 Squall Leonhart's gunblade.

Ramsey
11-07-2004, 09:54 PM
Squall was my idol when that game came out. I'm not kidding.



And FF9 kinda sucked..

Street fighter?
You best mean the Anime film and not the 'Live-action' crap they made, that thing was awful, can't even call it a movie lol.

Chrono trigger could never be done as a movie lol, to many endings.. and if you took the main ending then you would have to do chrono cross too.. and that would just nerf anyones brain lol, unless they have played the games first..

but now i think about it, they would make cool movies.. would have to be anime though, couldn't do it justice in 'Live action', just wouldn't be right (what with chrono's hair and frog and well almsot everything lol)

FF7: Advent Children looks to be a follow on from the avents from FF7, Looks rather cool but im not sure on the story yet. Although Screen Shots inculde Cloud and sephiroth so im confused on how it set/based. (as the only info i can find is in japanese on a flash site so i can translate it) i do know that they are doing a Mobile phone game based on the movie though.

check it out (in japanese so you might need the language pack)

Metal Gear Solid - i wish there was a movie version of this game... it would be a boxofficehitt or a groundbreaking movie.

Parasite Eve - Aya Brea is just so beautiful... and the perfect actress to play her role will be for me... Tara Reid.... i saw a poster of Tara Reid's movie "Heavens Pond"... and Tara Reid was in all green, and she looked exactly just like Aya Brea... and thats when i thought Tara Reid would be the perfect actress to play a Aya Brea role if there was a PE movie.

The last three GTA's..Tony Hawk's Underground 1 wouldnt be that bad..Fable/Zelda..Maybe Silent Hill 2, it's already kinda like a movie.

That's a pretty screwed up list. Depp as Cloud Strife? Barrymore as Tifa? No way!

You're in luck! They already have a draft script ready for Silent Hill the Movie, its being produced as we speak!



And guess what the good part is ;)


Konami won't let anyone work with the movie other than Konami, so you better believe it will be done right :)

You beat me to it. Since I read they're going to make one, I'm really scared it's going to suck.

Maybe not, though.

EDIT: I think Devil May Cry would make for a good action movie.

11-08-2004, 02:33 PM
Dawn of the Dead should definately be a game.
I just saw that over the weekend, and if the game was half as good as the movie, it'd still be great.

And to whoever said Doom as a movie, they are. And I think Vin Diesel is the lead character...

And the Matrix would be a GREAT game, if they wouldn't screw it up like they did on "Enter the Matrix". :angry:

I believe some film production company have bought the rights for Metriod, so there may be a Metriod film in production soon.

If they did it right, I think you could make a great game out of Gladiator. Not like that rubbish gladiator RPG thing, but make it a RPG/Hack & Slash/Fighting with maybe a bit of army commanding and deadly horse chariot racing.

They are making a Scarface and a Godfather video game coming out middle to end of 2005.
I think Max Payne 1 and 2, Hitman Silent assasin, grand theft auto(III,vice and san andreas) could make really good movies.

Unreal Tournament, I like the storyline to it.

Its in the future and the jails are getting overcrowded so (like they did in the roman empire) made 10 of them fight each other, and the winner got there freedom. (they took people from deathrow or life in prison)
