What are the games that you would love to see adapted as an HBO/AMC/netflux tv series IN A COMPETENT WAY
the web series and short films on YouTube in the Fallout Universe are comfy af. I would love a big budget movie or series.
in this day and age I do t see why Bethesda havnt created a web series of their own for it.
There's already been multiple movies though.
I would love to see a series about completely new world with bizzare character and customs. Planescape Torment would be of those. But it would require a good director, someone who like dark gothic settings.
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.
Needs to have a slick, stylish animated mini-series adaptation.
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.
I'd love me some Ceasar's legion
Clive Barker's Undying
Viggo Mortensen as the main character, Patrick. The Covenant family, pic related, from left to right, played by Mia Wasikowska, Nick Cave (because why the fuck not), Gary Oldman, Kate Winslet, and Oscar Isaac (and Doug Jones once he becomes that skinless, bloody thing).
while LoK is very patrician, I don't think an adaptation will do good in the current market, mainly because the market has been oversaturated with vampires
but yeah, there's plenty of interesting story for a full series
Imagine Quenting Tarantino working on it
>tfw Adam Sandler have enough money to sponsor 2 seasons of high budget series like this but he prefer to waste it on shit like Pixar and Ridiculous 6
>mfw Undying will never be adapted into a series
eh there is that movie...
the main sin for filmmakers is that they trying to fit a video game into the movie, when it require at least 12 episode series for characters to grown on us without actually taking control of them
Goddamnit I fucking loved these
Short enough for a miniseries too
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.
Mass Effect: Citadel
Each season focuses on a character or set of characters that live/work on the Citadel, similarly to The Wire
>S1 can be about C-Sec detectives
>S2 can be about Red Sand smugglers
>S3 can be a political thriller about a rising ambassador
>S4 can be about a merchant who chases Shepard around the galaxy to try and get his/her endorsement
Half the games were written and directed by some chick too, so everybody can feel nice and diverse. It's a shame that the vampire fad seems to be pretty much over.
Someone should also do Baldur's Gate, starring The Rock as Minsc.
Why do people invent nonsense likei this to explain why video game adaptations tend to fail? They fail because the producers don't care about doing them right. And no, doing them right doesn't require a 12 episode series.
>The Rock as Minsc and with a hamster
>Peter Dinklage as Jan
>Jeff Bridges as Edwin
Movie script should mine elements from the original short, the video game and the excellent radio play adaption.
LA Noire. But it's already a movie basically, with rudimentary gameplay and digitized real actors acting out story, so who cares?
I don't understand why would anyone want Fallout to be transferred into linear medium when variability is the entire point.
You could easily do it like those dime-a-dozen Mohammad movies, where he's never shown on screen, or its from his perspective.
You, I like you. Especially the vault boy segments, thats fucking genius.
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.
directed by David Fincher
pls make it happen
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.
>I don't understand why would anyone want Fallout to be transferred into linear medium when variability is the entire point.
This is like saying why make a movie out of a novel when using your imagination is the entire point.
No Kenobi or Solo movie please. Just this and the second one and a suitable conclusion.
No, you can translate the same plot on screen.
But all the fun in Fallout is about running around, searching ruins, talking to variety of wasteland degenerates, none relevant to actual plot. Actual plot is usually boring.
>implying anyone could play Minsc in a way that didn't feel forced and retarded
And you can translate Fallout's plot into a movie. And someone could argue that all the fun in a book is to imagine everything yourself.
Why make excuses? Game-to-movie adaptations fail because producers don't give a shit, and not because >muh interactivity or >muh long length or >muh silent protagonist.
Why does all these kind of Kotor art pictures always depict Revan as bigger than Malak?
Really, it's odd as fuck since being a big guy was one of Malak's defining attributes while Revan being kinda average all around without the mask was his
Go fuck yourself.
A movie based on MYST would work if handled correctly, although it would fair much better as a series.
With that in mind, I think it might be better to make a movie based on the MYST books instead.
Forbidden Siren 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_HbYTyodfo
Seconding this, MYST would make a great series.
Also Don't Starve as a Burton-esque movie
Obligatory 40k TV series post.
>from the rise of the Emperor and the search for the Primarchs to the Great Crusade and then the Horus Heresy
>the Emperor and the Primarchs all have their characters fully fleshed out
And then maybe some movies for the stuff that happen afterwards, particularly the 13th Black Crusade.
A Series based on RDR would be fucking awesome. If it were a movie it would have to be a two parter, the first movie beign about John Marston and the second about
Jack trying to avenge his father
This would either be great or so shit its great anyway depending on who handles it.
I still want the movie but NOT with Jamie Foxx as lynch.
Posted this in an earlier thread, but a contract-of-the-week miniseries with vague conspiracy shit tying the hits together would be amazing if they did it right.
Just don't fucking touch the dialog and hire Amy Hennig as a writer.
That's because they completely abandoned any concept of stealth (the central point of the games) after a few minutes and just made a bang bang shoot 'em up movie.
Time and place for those things, and Hitman isn't it.
