ITT: Video Games that you were surprised never turned into a movie.
>>
>>81877731
none
Video game movies are shit(except for Resident Evil. RE movies are better than the games)
>>
>>81877731
The premise of this game was wasted IN the game.

Like it was still an amazing game which was impressively strong from a technology standpoint, but they set up the idea of a squad that investigates paranormal events like a SWAT team mixed with the X-Files and the game only focuses on ONE such event.

They should make a movie of Street Fighter: The Movie: The Game called Street Fighter: The Movie: The Game: The Movie

I am shocked it hasn't been turned into a film. I would love to direct it if I was a filmmaker, considering no one else seems to want to make it.

Resident Evil are among the worst films ever, let alone video game movies.

I am so glad it didn't, it was a good game and the game made the story turn out okayish. The 'scary parts' were scary because of the AI, the enemy could be everywhere. In a movie it would be shittier than the new ring movie adaptation from usa.

>>81878051
Though 3 would be easier turned into one movie, or 3 with broken-steel and a point lookout spin-off.
This, according to Hobbit standards, would be 11 movies: 3 main-story 2 for each dlc

>>81878633
I think New Vegas would work better as an HBO tv show than anything. The DLCs can be two hour specials sprinkled in across the show until Lonesome Road which leads into the finale.

Who should play the Courier?
>>
>>81878717
Yeah that would be better. FA:3-the movie as hype before.

IMO Karl Pilkington; Bullet in head, doesn't really know what's going but goes through the story because it's 'doing something'.

Companions could make him a hero, (Int/science check scores), first of it's victor, boone, ect. everyone he comes accros join his band or stick wth him for a time.
End battle would be him and all 'good' companions going berserker on the dam.

>This because giving the Courier too much of a persona would be meh.
>>
>>81878863
But what faction would the courier side with?
>>
>>81879027
Mr. House or Yes-Man
>>
>>81879027
House or yes-man; certainly not legion nor NCR.
If yes-man: Christine Royce as waifu in charge and Karl just being Karl irl as husband of the most powerful woman in the Mojave.
Or Followers of The Apocalypse (with or without mister house) Just force House to take more care of people with his robots, or yes-man.

Legion. Kill Boone. Kill all degenerates.
Purify the wasteland. Legion is the best choice.

I killed Caesar, Vulpes, told Lanius to fuck off so he can continue to ruin the Legion from the inside, I slaughtered everyone of their encampments and bases, foiled as many of their plans as I could and dropped a nuke on them at the end of Lonesome Road.

Legion ones are fun too:

>Kill any named Legion members with Hunting Revolvers, Ranger Sequoias, Brush Guns, Service Rifles, Hunting Rifles, or Cowboy Repeaters. (10 to do)

Perfect Dark would work well, but Gits sank at the box office so...
Wolfenstein should have been made by now, it's a super jew beating up nazis, easy sell for any studio
>>
>>81879723
>been a few Halo movies
Forward Unto Dawn was decent, but wasn't really a movie nor was it AAA with a big budget and good director like a real Halo movie deserves. Fall of Reach was an animated series and Nightfall was a shitty series.

We need a REAL Halo movie that premieres in theatres and has a good, passionate director with a decent sized budget.

I remember everyone hyped FEARs plot as one of the greatest things in fps but I don't think it was nothing special.

Also the games world wasn't very interesting. Only industrial areas and offices populated only by soldiers. Would've been cool if you bumped into some ghetto dwellers while fighting your way through the derelict districts

Fallout 4 would be a better movie as it was a better game
>he plays New Vegas
Here’s thing thing about fallout
fo3 was good for its time, but combat sucked

when new vegas came around, it was a "new game" but it looked exactly the same and there were no innovative new features, fighting things were a chore. plus there were like no open world respawns, making its replayability the worst.

When you first start out in NV there’s no story at all. I’ve never played an RPG like that. There’s nothign to draw you in, and the game is so retarded if you so much as walk in the wrong direction you get raped by a deathclaw, because ObsSHITian is too lazy to design a decently flowing world map so they lock down sections with high-level mobs.

This is why Fallout 4 is the best.

fallout 4 is by far the most enjoyable. they added innovative new features like settlements, hit markers, respawning enemies (when u compare it to NV its a new feature) and made VATs a lot less cheap. It still is a noob feature, but instead of stopping time it slows time, not by enough in my opinino though .

Power armor is finally as it should be. Its not a gay looking martian suit that looks so flimsy a 9mm bullet could penetrate it. Now i can believe its actual powerful death suit, not the worst cosplay at faggotcon. Plus, in fo4 you can attach jetpack. A fucking jetpack. Enough said, fo4 is the FIRST 3D fallout to have a jetpack.


It’s 2017. fo4 is just a superior, well polished game. I can’t wait for skyrim remastered. Another great game.

I don't think anybody would say FEAR had a good story. People loved FEAR because, at the time, it was one of the best FPS games which introduced mechanics which nearly every shooter has adopted.
The story was very bland, shallow, and forgettable.

Radiant AI, which while primitive, allowed the "director" to spawn enemies anywhere and adapt their AI on the fly
Also bullets were able to interact with environments to much greater extent like tear chunks in walls and concrete and creating debris which can be interacted with, as well as shooting chunks of flesh off enemies which they reacted to

I'm not sure how it could work as a movie. While the game had a plot, it was super simplistic. Man slays one monster after another to bring his girlfriend back to life. The whole game is just traveling to a colossus, defeating it, and traveling to the next colossus and defeating it.

For realsies though I think the Legacy of Kain games would make excellent films, at least when compared to the usual overhyped dudebro-centric AAA schlock farted out by jewywood every season. Especially considering the games themselves may have aged like milk (and were honestly kinda terrible even back when they first released) the story and characters more than make up for that, and you could definitely do a lot with them for at least one movie.

They have changed how studios can write down their losses as tax deductions and many stupid as fuck culture subsidies have been actually limited in many countries. Uwe Boll is probably never going to make movies with big budgets.

Uwe Boll abused tax systems and film subsidies in multiple countries. Make everything as multi-national production, shoot in multiple countries and etc to leech money from said countries and abuse tax codes of said countries.

Thats combat. Its a graphical top-down game with text descriptions.

Why do you have an opinion on it if you've never played it (or apparently even seen it?).

It was really well written and has an interesting plot.
>>
>>81886171

The reasons why he quit making movies are simple. Hollywood and random investors aren't interested in making medium budget movies, some of tax loopholes they abused are now non-existent, all people in charge of cultural funds and other tax funded subsidies now know his reputation as he got kinda famous. Also the market where they used to make money is dead or at least in complete chaos as video rentals have been replaced by streaming services.
