    The thread name says it all.

    Let's have some fun,

    What Video Games would you want made into films (even though you know Hollywood eventually will and most likely screw them up bad just for a quick buck), who would you have direct it, and who would you cast in the necessary roles? EXPLAIN WHY.

    Live Action and Animated are both allowed. Whatever you think works. Even Pixar. Nothing is wrong with having a movie look like one giant cut scene. Metal Gear does it all the time and people love it(minus the insane lengths).

    With the remake rage in Hollywood these days, anything is game (yes, even that shitty 90's Super Mario Bros. film), as long as none of it breaks Board Rules.

    Any film studio or release method is game. Hollywood, foreign, Bollywood, movies made for TV, direct to DVD, anything.

    Also, anything that is a bunch of hour-long episodes (mini-series) like "Band of Brothers" is game as well if the story would never fit into a 2-3 hour movie or even a trilogy of films. The Metal Gear saga is a prime example of where this could be beneficial.

    DISCUSS.

    Conker's Bad Fur Day?

    Just make it a CGI film with as much violence, adult humor and language, nudity and sexual content as possible.

    That would be a great idea! As long as it keeps an R rating. I mean, have you ever heard of a super successful movie that was NC-17? But anyway, I would think that the Grand Theft Auto series could make a great movie. If done the right way.

    YEAH uh....No. Absolutely not. I mean, when I heard the kid from Even Stevens was in the first Transformers back in like 06, I was like, DAMN YOU BAY! But I now see it was an okay choice. But if Michael Bay directed the new Halo Movie, I'd be pretty pissed.

    I mainly want to see a Metroid movie directed by maybe Michael Bay, James Cameron, or Sam Raimi. I would hope they cast Jessica Alba as Samus Aran, after seeing her performance as Susan Storm in Fantastic Four. In that movie, she was hot, blonde, and an ass-kicking super heroine. All of that applies to Samus Aran.

    On the other hand, Peter Jackson was going to make a Halo movie but supposedly it's either canceled, or just in development hell. Hopefully the latter because I REALLY want to see a Halo movie and Peter Jackson, IMO, is a great director, after seeing King Kong.

    If you saw Alba in Sin City, your pants would explode, Junior.
    Alba was weak in Fantastic Four, IMO.

    on topic...
    I woulda went with Michael Mann for GTA: VIce City, but not after he ruined his own Miami Vice.

    I would love to see GTA San Andreas...

    Max Payne was a good game adapted to a shitty movie.


    Kingdom Hearts with KH2 elements directed by McG.

    Devil May Cry- John Woo

    Onimusha- Quentin Tarantino

    None. Anything that's turned into a movie adaptation will suck, guaranteed.

    The Legend of Zelda. I still can't understand how this didn't get made after the success of 'the Lord of the Rings'.

    Halo. Just because I love Halo.
    I'd love to see DMC up on the big screen, it would be great for over the top ultra violence.
    Metal Gear would be good as a movie as well, it wouldn't feel as annoyed by it if it where an actual movie instead of a "game" with cutscenes every five minutes. The problem is that Metal Gear has so many plots and sub plots that are all apparently integral to the story, you could never get it up there in any sort of digestible form and still be really true to itself.

    A CGI Ratchet and Clank with the same humor as the games, returning characters, and tons of action.

    Valkyrie Profile and Dino Crisis 2.

    Neither have a chance in hell of happening, though. So I'm safe from worrying about a bad adaptation.

    Metal Gear- with Solid Snake played by either Vigo Mortenson or Hugh Jackman.

    I'd have no idea who I'd want for a director because he'd have to have attention to detail for the talky bits but a visual eye for the flashy action and giant walking tanks.

    Or David Hayter? ;) 
    How about the movie director that Hideo Kojima picked out to do cut scenes for Metal Gear already: Ryuhei Kitamura :D
