Games+Movies=Greed

I read that they are making a MGS movie….What the F***?? I thought Guns of the Patriots was a ‘movie’. Honestly what reason do they have to make a MGS movie? For that matter what reason do they have to make any game into a movie. I bet if you think about it you can’t name 5 decent game movies. There’s a reason for that. It’s because there aren’t 5 movies to name.

I don’t know who makes these decisions to make these movies but I wish they would just stop. What was the first movie based off a video game? I guess looking back it would have to be Super Mario Brothers. At what point did someone think that the movie was good enough to keep making movies in that genre? It just seems to me as a gamer that some things need to be left alone. Games that we all love and have loved are on a block to be butchered. Now on top of games being turned into bad movies you have abominations like Uwe Boll that kill them that much more. I’m sure his Far Cry movie being released in the coming weeks will be just great.

Now a Bio-shock movie as well. Granted it sounds like it could have potential but probably not. They say that Gore Verbibski is ‘attached’ to direct the film. Even if you take into effect that he did take an amusement park ride and turn it into a movie trilogy, chances are it will still be awful. I guess when you get down to it the problem can’t be stopped because we think that the movie might have hope so we all pay money to see it. That gives a high box office return and that gives the green light to keep making them. I think what it comes down to is Games+Movies=Money. Money+Money=Greed.

    I agree with what you say in the fact that people like Uwe Boll are beating the video game adaptations to a bloody pulp.

    Some video game movies could be good if done right but in order to do that you have to make sure the game has a decent theme and also that the film maker isn’t the anti-christ. (I.E. Uwe Boll)

    Some games like MGS really are movies you can play and lets face it that is exactly what it is.

    B-dar out.

    As long as there are games people are interested in they will keep making movies about them unfortunately. In the same way there will be games with every other movie. Its sad to see your favorite games getting slaughtered by ignorant directors.

    Also as far as naming 5 decent game movies? Tomb Raider? Maybe not all of them but still… Other than that I can’t really think of anything…
