    At least 90% of announced video game adaptions never make it through to completion.

    Given the general quality of the ones that do succeed it's probably a good thing.

    Professor Layton...?

    How can you possibly make a movie that's a series of derivative mini-games packaged as shovelware?

    Also, where's Tetris: The Movie? :D

    make it a standard mystery and Layton and the kid have to solve puzzles. of course it will take 5 seconds.. I can kinda see that working.

    Mass Effect will become a generic sci-fi movie

    L4D - standard Zombie movie.

    Gears has Cliffy B. involved so I have high hopes for it. The fact that the creator of the series itself is adding his input doesn't make me as worried as any other of these movies that are supposedly being done.

    This is very true. If only the 10% left were guaranteed to be terrific, eh? :D 

    L4D would be in danger of being a sort of Romero rip off on film, but you never can tell, perhaps they'll do something different that will set it apart from the rest of the Zombie schlock. :) 

    Yeh, the ratio does lean more towards 'suck' unfortunately. Perhaps we need a high profile project like MGS to raise the bar further and show that these properties deserve respect. There was talk that Spielberg love 'Bioshock' and that he may be inclined to at least produce a film. Still, just a rumour, but that kind of director on board a VG adaptation would help I think.
    Silent Hill IMO is the best example so far, it set the bar higher.

    Its a list cobbled from across the web, but as llamatron said, just cos its announced, means nothing. 'Nightmare Creatures' was announced and the film rights were sold years ago, then..... nothing.

    I had never heard of Layton, but Tetris The Movie sounds intriguing! :lol 

    Hell yeh. I'd love to see one. My only worry is, can cinema match the epicness of the game?

    Yeh, its looks OK.

    There's also a fan made Mega Man movie being made (and apparently, close to being finished). Here's a link to the site:

    MEGAMAN

    My opinions so far regarding the trailer (keeping in mind that it's fan-made and very low budget):

    - Don't like how the timeline is messed up (Rock should've been the second bot built behind Proto Man, but it seems that at least Roll and probably the other 6 original RMs came before him in this movie).

    - Also not really feeling Dr. Light so far (though he is better than Dr. Fudd from MM8:lol )

    - I really like Dr. Wily, the guy seems made for the role

    - I'm definitely going to see more of Proto Man (or who I'm assuming is Proto Man), as I'm kind of indifferent towards his design at the moment.
