What are the games that you would love to see adapted as an HBO/AMC/netflux tv series IN A COMPETENT WAY

NetHack anthology series. Each episode in a season is devoted to a different class. The main character dies at the end of every episode for the first several seasons. Writers visualize distinct "players" for the characters, though the players are never mentioned or shown. The "players" get better over the seasons, and eventually ascend in the final season - or at least some of them do.

Spinoff series deals with conducts.

>>64665376

A series of seasons of 30-minute animated episodes based on the Fallout Universe. Perhaps a 30-episode season dedicated to the telling of a single game's plot. Fallout and especially Fallout: New Vegas are the prime candidates for direct adaptations, and beyond that there's no reason that a season couldn't tell a story outside of those already seen in the games.

The animation would be high-quality and detailed, with a visual-style reminiscent of something inspired by comic-books or anime. Lots of visual flair to things like motion and character-appearances to make each frame something worth looking at. Maybe invite some established Japanese animation-directors or animation-teams to give the series a distinctive look. Overall, something reminiscent of HBO's Spawn cartoon.

The violence would be graphic and realistic, much like the games that inspired it. Maybe even super slow-mo shots of things like heads exploding or limbs being severed, both to add visual panache and style, as well as to be reminiscent of the VATS sequences from the most recent games. However, none of the adult-content should be exaggerated (for shock-value) or toned-down (for mass-appeal) too far from the mood of the games, since the games struck a nice balance of pulpy maturity without turning into edge-lord bait.

Each episode would end with a minute-or-so-long Vault-Tech animated instructional-video featuring Vault-Boy, maintaining that edge of ironic or satirical humor that the games are known for. The topic of each Vault-Tech instructional-video that ended an episode would be a vague hint about the content of the next episode (i.e. if the next episode features the protagonist meeting a partner he's sexually interested in, the proceeding episode ends with a video on the topic of procreation in the post-nuclear world, warning about the effects of residual radiation on parents and how it can lead to mutant children, things like that).

Motherfucking Ron Perlman as the narrator.

None because the whole appeal to video games including their story is that by playing them you feel as if you are in the journey. Even the best story based video games would be subpar in other mediums if you stripped that away.

Harvester would have been fucking fantastic if it took itself a little more seriously.

A lot of the menace and intrigue was sabotaged by attempts to be funny, which was a shame.

A man with amnesia waking up in a bizarre twisted 1950's town isolated from the rest of civilization with cultural undercurrents of violence and grotesque sexual taboos that culminates in a bizarre, surreal, dream-like exploration of violence as a narrative tool is one of the absolute coolest and more eerie concepts for a videogame I have ever heard. It's just a shame they didn't run with it like they should have.

I think it could make for a really fun, minimal dialogue cartoon.

Some episodes could be more like one of those Wile E Coyote/Road Runner cartoons, where Bowser or just some generic cannon fodder enemies try to kill or spring a trap on Mario and/or Luigi while they obliviously dodge(or deliberately and deftly dodge and reverse the trap like Bugs Bunny).

Some could be like Popeye, Mario & Luigi trying to solve a basic task taken to Herculean levels like fixing plumbing, or simply storming a castle to save Bowser, before dosing with a powerup to win the day.

You could even something like Courage the Cowardly Dog, with Luigi driven to wits' end trying to solve something with monsters or ghosts.

No, you can translate the same plot on screen.
