View Full Version : Films to games vs. Games to films

Harry Potter, The Matrix and LOTR have very cool video games that are co-branded with the release of the films. Obviously Star Wars has inspired a rash of great SW games on various platforms. What about films that are a genesis of games. I can think of Tomb Raider and Mortal Kombat, but not too many others. Any cool ideas? What about games that you think would make really cool fictional movies? These are some of my votes:

1. Rachet & Clank (http://www.ratchetandclankgadgets.com/#)
2. Splinter Cell (http://www.splintercell.com/us/)
3. For the unreleased but highly anticipated" vote, I submit I-Ninja (http://www.ininjagame.com/) I could see Pixar taking this game for a real ride!

A Zelda Movie would be awesome. Metroid movie would be the best though...... *drools* :)

Yes Zelda would be cool. I hear Alien vs Predator will be made which should be awsome.

I think Perfect Dark, Halo, and Half-Life would also make great movies.

The Legend of Zelda = A perfect game to make into a movie if Nintendo will let them make it deeper than something just for kids.

Metroid = Don't even think about making this into a movie cause Samus all by herself in a movie just isn't interesting at all, and introducing anyone new will destroy the very nature of it being 'Metroid.' You all know that fact as well as I do.

Perfect Dark = Bah!!

Oh and Harry Potter, LOTR and The Matrix had crap games made from them.

So all in all, Zelda is the way to go if you want an epic, if they'll let it be that way instead of some small kiddy-like adventure.

Yeh, buy Lynk, imagine if they made Metroid Fusion into a movie, with SA-X! That would be awesome to see.... but your right... the movie would have to pretty much follow Samus throguh out the whole movie....

*shakes head* nope it'd suck, you can have multiple bad guys and an SA-X but there's only 1 main character. 1 main characters is boring, no development or interaction for that character, and speaking to Adam isn't my idea of good development in a movie.

I want to see an I-Ninja movie by the people who did Ice Age.

They're making an Alien vs Predators movie, it's James Cameron who's doing it I think.

Anyway, we can consider this more of a mix of two movies into a game, then back into a movie...neway...

It's better to keep games as games. Most movie games suck.
The opposite can be good tho.
