Video game movies. Which one should be made?
« on: August 28, 2009, 11:18:29 AM »
This should (I hope) be a tough one since other people have their ideas about what a movie should be like and how it should work out with the given choices. Fell free to reccommend others, but try to vote anyway.

Only 1 vote. You can change vote. You can see the results without voting first.

Sorry. No Halo on the list. They are already doing one based off of the first book.

Well, I voted for Descent video game (the obvious choice). Personally, I think there's a lot of potential, and I already have ideas about what it should be like. 8)

I do like descent, but i dont think the games could be made into movies.

And i also like The Conduit, but the more that i think about it, i dont think it could be a movie. It seems too "All over the place".

I actually will have to go for Freespace for this one, because the story seems to be really solid, actually.  :)

As long as I like Battletech (Mechwarrior) and Descent.
My vote goes to Metroid (my top favorite Nintendo game ever).

*coming back from Nursing Foundation test-cramming to momentarily lurk*

I just had to post on this one:

I'll have to say Freespace. I think it would have the potential to redefine the whole space-sci-fi genre... In fact, using the whole subspace concept, I was trying to think of a scene that would rival the "Death Star Trench Run" in terms of it's being memorable. I came up with the concept of having the hero being sent into a subspace portal with the destination being the core reactor of a gigantic Shivan juggernaut capable of destorying the GTVA fleet. A GTVA capital ship sends a beam straight into the subspace portal with the hero, chasing it at lightspeed into the portal out of subspace into the reactor, thus destroying the hero's ship and blowing the Shivan reactor to pieces. It'd be epic.  ;D

The only reason I thought of this at one point is because I came up with some ideas for FS2 campaigns not too long ago.

*goes back to studying, carry on*
I, for one, hope this is much, much more than a reconnaissance mission.

I don't think the Descent games have enough depth or characters to be made into movies, but even though I've only read Descent: Equinox, I think at least that book is more than good enough.

I just re-read the options here and wanted to let you know that MDK stands for "Murder Death Kill." Violent, eh?  ;)

Oh, I was really torn between Republic Commando and Descent.... I really, really liked the story behind that one.

Freespace FTW! It has the structure and a story that can be reformed into a movie.

Dude, I would be stoked if they made a movie about the Transcend campaign!

Freespace would make for a good movie, too, but I'm still holding out for a Descent movie. :)

I'd go for "None of the above".

Video games should not be turned into fiilms. I can't think of any film made after a game that I'd consider being good.
