could this series translate well into film?
Not really. The 'plot' of Half-Life is laughingly bad and hinges on great atmosphere, the character of Gordon Freeman isn't really a character, and it's hard to make a coherent story about the guy who runs around scientific facilities and shoots zombies in a face with magnum
well... one of the co-creators and writers of Half Life just left Valve saying he didn't want to write for just games anymore and wanted to write for other mediums... hmmmmm...
Well, the game came out based on the movie and the game in the movie.
I wasn't quite old enough to see it when it came out, but I do remember seeing it in the arcade years later when I started going to them in the late 80s.
They gotta get JJ Abrams on that shit quick. But we need to spice up the lore to make it accessible for general audiences
>vortigaunts are now cute fluffy creatures
>Alyx is now a main character, she needs no Freeman
>One of the combines realises that he doesn't want to make people pick up the can and deserts. He's black and becomes good friends with Barney. They're wacky together.
>The villian is obviously G-Man, tall, white man in a corporate suit
>Nihilanth is replaced by a giant spider or some shit, can't have our characters kill babies, even if they're giant and ugly
>ouch that sliced my soul in half
t-there's going to be a half life 3 r-right ?
another JJ teen angst movie featuring bazinga and spock
If fictional games count, Wreck it Ralph certainly deserves a mention.
