i'll have to wait until Metroid: Other M is out to see if the story would be worthy of being made into a film

Never thought about it... Maybe... If the director isn't Michael Bay, it could be interesting.

@ Zenman Thanks I hadn't watched that in a couple of days :)

Love your SoaSE suggestion. I love the scope of that game and would drool over a movie (there's not enough sci-fi flicks being made).

As for me, howzaboot Tarantino doin' No More Heroes. Ooh, I quiver at the thought, mmmm. But no Johnny Knoxville, I'll play Travis, it's ok.

There can only be one, like in that foreign movie where there could only be one, and in the end there is only one dude left, because that was the point.

The problem with making a movie out of games like Ocarina of Time and Other M lies in the spoilers. If OoT was made into a movie, everyone would already know how it ends as well as how the adventure goes. Also, for anyone who somehow hasn't played the game, it's ruined for them. For newer games like Other M it would drop sales to make a movie out of it.

The only logical thing to do when making something from game to movie (if it can be a possible success), would be to make up another plot entirely. For instance, bring back Vaati and a mute Navi with a naive child Link unleashing the movie's evil by pure accident. (Hey, he's a kid. Kids make mistakes...and this kid would have to correct it.)

Now, there are games that could, as Adam mentioned, be a Saturday morning cartoon series (we'll never speak of those other series ever again). Heck, even Metroid could be a good cartoon if the right plot (stretched across a season) is used in those 22 minutes of air time.

Personally, I'd want a series or movie on The Legend of Zelda, but that's not going to happen. >>;

No. A thousand times no. If they tried to turn anything Sonic into a movie I going to have to start killing people.

But the story in S&P sucked, and the characters were uninteresting. Not that the gameplay was bad (not my thing though), but I don't know how it would work.

@The Fox: That's why I said action movie. Most action movies don't have good plots or interesting characters, they just have nice, shiny explosions. Which Sin and Punishment has a lot of.

I think that Metal Gear Solid should be a movie. Just look at Metal Gear Rex. Looks like movie material to me.

I don't know why they haven't done that yet. All those games are basically movies anyway. Maybe that's why though.

lol. But I heard that they were actually making the movie. I hope that it runs by its story line though.

I think I could see the Chzo Mythos (http://www.fullyramblomatic.com/5days/) becoming excellent movies.

...Of course, I can also see them becoming terrible movies, but whatever.
