Okay, not sure if this has been posted before so apologies if so.

Basically I have never seen a movie that has been made from a Video Game franchise, so generally I can't say if they tend to work or not.

However I can't help thinking how great the Mass Effect series would be in movies, if done on an epically proper scale by say Geroge Lucas, Peter Jackson or Spielberg, to name a few.

What does everyone else think? Also any other games you think would make great movies?

Didn't Squaresoft do a Final Fantasy movie before they merged with Enix? If I remember right the movie didn't really have anything to do with any of the games in the series, but it still carried the title, and was made by the gaming software company.

On that note though, I would love to see a movie made out of Suikoden 2 or Suikoden 5. I think the premise of either of those games would seriously make for a great movie.

Bulletstorm would be a boss movie, and so would the FEAR series. To be perfectly honest, Call of Duty MW 1 2 and 3 are ALREADY movies. Assassin's Creed would be great as a movie. Left 4 Dead campaigns would be good movies as well. Tom Clancy's splinter cell games. Battlefield 3. Battlefield Bad Company 2.

Movies inspired by games:
Halo Legends.

.Hack Liminality.

Resident Evil.

Super Mario Bros.

Far Cry.

I truly do belive that World of Warcraft would make great movies, the problem I think is that there is a huge story behind it that you can't put in movies, but they made it work with LoTR.
If made right, a WoW movie could be one of the best there is.

I assume Skyrim would make a decent movie, but I have a feeling that it would turn out as tacky as the Eragon movie did...

Mmmm Gears of war i think would be good. all 3 i mean though there are gaps between the games so i guess off shoot story not main chars from the game? *shrug*

final fantasy VII was made into a movie called final fantasy "Advent childeren" which continued on after VII. it was awesome.

I think L.A. Noire would make a great movie. It has a good story, action, and suspense. The only thing I'm not sure about is how they would continue the story.

SPOILER ALERT: Contains important plot points!
Because the main character, Cole Phelps, dies at the end of the game, would a sequel or movie center around Jack Kelso instead?

Yeah, I couldn't even bring myself to finish that film. Eragon is ruined for me forever :(
I still want to see HalfLife as a movie....
This. A million times this. That said, some of the fan-made films based in the HL universe are pretty epic.

The Uncharted series, by far. There's been rumors about it going to be made, but who knows if it's going anywhere.

I'm waiting for more news on this myself, got a couple of casting candidates i wouldnt mind suggesting somewhere.

I think the condemned series would make good movies, as would deadspace if it was done as a live action (I'm aware theres an anime already).

Not really sure of any others, but Uncharted is practically a movie already, they just need to replace the cg with live action.

I think Skyrim would be a decent movie at least what I've played of it so far. So many different stories it could use but then i'm not sure how Skyrim ends so can't judge on that ... Yet

A movie set in the elder scrolls universe would be cool, I dunno about a movie *about* your exploits in skyrim specifically.

Fuck Yeah! HalfLife would be awesome. it'd be hard to show Freeman as a likeable character though, seeing as he doesn't speak.

IMO, the following could be done: Saints Row, Portal (I think that would be AWESOME), Alan Wake. Theres a heap more too.
