I'd make a Call of Duty movie about the true horrors of war. Showing that a billion dollar gaming franchise has been glorifying something horrible. Protagonist dies at the end from something stupid like a landmine.

Yeah they already made that, it's called DRIVE

Myth: The Fallen Lords

I would love a Halo movie trilogy. I really love that universe. The only problem is that Master Chief barely talks and you can't build a movie around that. Neither can you make a straight adaptation from the game, since 90% of the game is you actually shooting things. But this is a gripe that applies to all games you want to turn into a movie.

not him, but why not? or make it two movies, moving from mechanical augmenations in the first one and into the nano ones from the first game in the second movie

All the GTA games are just mashups of every crime movie ever made.

For me, it's Psychonauts or Grim Fandango directed by Henry Selick.

Hotline Miami

No I think he means a good movie based on Max Payne

Probably not starring Marky Mark

Anyone seen this movie?
It came out this year and it's supposed to be shot entirely from first person perspective.

They showed it at some festivals but there are no release dates yet.

I think HL done right would be more surreal then both those movies.

Obviously Hotline is heavily inspired by Drive, but it has enough of it's own world and vibe to justify a movie
>>
Mega Man set in 2200 America.

He's a cyborg super cop sent to disrupt Dr. Wiley's takeover.

Think Speed Racer, but refined & a bit Raid Redemption... with proto plasmas.
>>
>>64585316
Everybody in this thread can go back to /v/. No matter how much you've convinced yourself otherwise there are literally no videogames that have good plots. Videogame worlds are messes of different movie inspiration thrown together childishly and they can never be successfully adapted into a movie that someone who isn't a manchild obsessed with the game will enjoy.

Homeworld would make for a great film or even a miniseries, if done smartly.

It's a simple enough story, but on a grand scale to keep things interesting and rich.

I know it's not the best game in the series but I think it would translate the best into a movie. Also most likely to because it's so popular.

Despite ALL evidence pointing to the contrary, I still think there's a way to make a good Hitman movie.

Secret: Make 47 more like a horror movie villain, an efficient master of disguise without conscience. The actual ultimate killing machine.

Played by Mark Strong, Corey Stoll, or Jason Statham (though I'm not sure about that last one).

The whole point/appeal of video games is largely to take the settings of movies and to give the consumer the experience of manipulating it.

Pretty much all games take their ideas from movies so when you make a movie from a game it just ends up being a watered-down version of something that existed decades prior.
>>
>>64585617
A Fallout movie could really work. As long as it wasn't a straight adaption of one of the games and was an original story that had lot of the lore incorporated into it.
>>
>>64590431
It would be better as an tv show/anime. A movie would not be long enough to cover half of what they need to.
