    I was just with my sister talking about our favorite games and debating which ones would be great for Hollywood to pick up. She chose Final Fantasy 8 - I love it but story is waayy too complicated. I'd would flip for a chance to see "Parasite Eve" go to cinema.



    What do you guys think? Anyone interesting to play the role of Aya Brea?
    Or any other games out there you think could be turned into "good" movies?
    Lets face it - "Resident Evil" went off the real story's course and onto its own. "Doom" - lets forget about that one, shall we? "Final Fantasy" - too complex for its time for audience to understand. "Silent Hill" - near perfect!!

    If done right, Parasite Eve could be a really good movie.

    But ya know they're not going to do it right.

    House of the dead(s) were... horrendous to say the least.

    Absolutely not to every single suggestion made and yet to be made in this thread.

    Videogames and movies have never, ever, mixed with positive results. Ever.

    Parasite Eve would make a great movie! I miss this game and I hear SquareEnix is developing the third installment of the series.

    The problem with games --> movies is the cheese factor a lot of time. Anyone remember Super Mario Bros?

    DarkStalkers would be a pretty good movie I think but after what happened to Street Fighter I'd be scared of see another Capcom movie go live action.

    Persona might make a good series.
    Guilty Gear would be nice.
    Metroid would be epic I think.
    MegaMan could be a classic
    Contra.

    Persona 2 would make an INCREDIBLE movie.

    I would like to add Parasite eve started as a Horror Novel then a game LOOSELY based on the concept, then a movie based on the book.

    definitly world of warcraft. Though I don't know how they would mix up all the different storylines in one movie.
    And Mortal combat! That one has some nice stories too, or Tekken... hmmmicon_biggrin.gif

    Halo = movie license purchased. currently in production.

    Splinter Cell = movie license purchased. was in production at Paramount, then went to Dreamworks. Status unknown.

    Parasite Eve = already made into a film (in Japan). I think it released in 1998.

    Starcraft = Blizzard (property owner and game publisher) wants to license this to a Hollywood production co. rumored to have courted James Cameron, but he declined. status: dead in the water.

    Mario = made into a movie and was a huge Hollywood flop.

    Mortal Kombat = made into movie(s). Not huge commerical successes, but big enough to warrant sequels. Currently Mortal Kombat: Rebirth is being completed. I don't know when it's set to hit the theaters.

    Metroid = rights purchased by Jon Woo but Nintendo backed off. Nintendo wants to reserve the right to produce its own film in the future (likely to be animated/CGI movie).

    Zelda = practically the same story as above. Zelda cartoons have been produced in Japan, but I'm not aware of anything being released in the U.S.

    Final Fantasy = high-production CGI movie released in the U.S. and was a huge failure. Cartoon series released in Japan, and was a success. Never released in the U.S. but you can buy the series on DVD (I have them. they're quite good).

    Kingdom Hearts = was discussed at one point but shelved due to multiple licensing issues b/t Disney and Square. not to say it won't happen, but it's unlikely. in my opinion, if it does happen, it will release as an animated/CGI film.

    Drake's Fortune: Uncharted = Script has been written. Sony and director David O. Russell were in talks, but talks went south. Sony and various producers are currently in discussions.

    I'm a huge Square Enix fan. And as much as I would love to see my favorite games on film, I remember how disappointed when I went to see Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within.

    It was so bad, that I convinced myself it was good and my friends had to say, "Sorry- it was horrible..."

    If they ever do make films, I'd still watch it icon_biggrin.gif
    I'd want Kingdom hearts, Parasite Eve, Vagrant Story and Final Fantasy 6 (3 on SNES).

    I always thought the backstory to the Halo movies would have made a better movie... The story of the Forerunners. How awesome would it be to have a sci-fi movie with no humans in it.
    They'd be fighting the Flood, saving life in the galaxy onto an ark. And then Mendicant Bias, the A.I., goes crazy and starts killing your people. And then a love story between two people trapped on different sides of the galaxy - one about to be killed by the Halo rings. It's epic stuff.

    -Darkstalkers
    -Soul Force (gotta love Voldo and his S&M outfit)
    -Ninja Giaden
    -Metroid
