Has there ever been one good video game adaption? I can't think of one off of the top of my head. All I can think of when I think of video game adaptations are Max Payne and Hitman...and those were most definitely not good movies.
Definitely a very negative feeling just because of the track record of Hollywood. Who knows though...might come out well if they put in the time.
Coincidentally...this just popped up:
CBS Films has secured film rights to Square Enix's cyberpunk videogame franchise "Deus Ex," with Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh attached to produce.
With high-profile game-to-film adaptations having mostly stumbled at the box office, and gamemakers getting more cautious over how their franchises are treated by Hollywood, CBS Films will work closely with "Deus Ex" developer Eidos-Montreal on the bigscreen version. Film will revolve around second installment "Deus Ex: Human Revolution."
