Don't forget World of WarCraft as well. It's being developed by the same group that did 300.

What about Bioshock? That would certainly make a good movie.

*EDIT*
Well... the story is awesome. Don't know about the movie though.

XIII

Shocking and love them both. XIII might be based more so on the comic rather than the game though.

Splinter Cell

I wish Michael Ironside (voice of Sam Fisher) was young enough to play the role. His voice matches the character perfectly and...Sam Fisher less the voice just isn't the same.


Sean Costello said:
Kane & Lynch

Hmm, neither for nor against that one. The game doesn't start nor end happy. That's going to make a lot of unhappy movie goers.


Sean Costello said:
Gangland (think its based on the game)

I somehow doubt it is. The game is...well...not the best. It didn't sell the best either. Don't get me wrong, it is fun but I don't think any director or studio would be brave enough to make a movie of it.

Spyro the Dragon

Who could resist the cute, violet drigon? XD

Halo was canceled about a year ago, I thought?

well some of these are scripts floating around, Halo just needs a studio to back it.

Although these aren't the actual trailers for the Halo movie but advertising for Halo 3, there is a lot of potential for it.

Combat scenes are well done, but obviously limited.

I have a (serious) question - has there ever been a good movie based on a video game? I can't think of one offhand...

Hitman wasn't bad. Other than that, I don't think so because the same damn guy makes them all and he butcher them. Its the same one that made the House of the Dead movie, and he's making a FarCry movie too.

His name is Uwe Boll. Apparently he found a loophole in the German law that allowed him to cash in certain amount of money on the movies even though they fail miserably at the box office. Some people say he should die, other want to kill him. He just suck so much. His last movie was In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, the one with Jason Stathan. It did crappy at the box office, I think this will be the last movie we see from him on the big theaters.

Hitman was ok, not good but it's not awful. I expected Agent 47 to be the perfect assassin, no mistakes, only kill his objective, just like I like to do it in the game. :_)

The only movie based on a video game that I liked was Silent Hill. It captured the games creepy mood perfectly, I saw it in the theaters and when I heard the Siren it gave me the weird feeling in my stomach that something bad is gonna happen. I mean this movie is so dark, it's evil, it's creepy, is the best video game based movie I've seen.
