Not sure if this has been brought up before (if so, please direct me Modder Masters). I'd like to discuss not only those video games that have been developed into some form of other entertainment (whether that be movies and/or cartoons, etc.) but also those video game franchises that actually deserve the opportunity to be developed into a fully fledge Hollywood (or other) production. Of course, the most recent video game to cause a stir (mainly bad) is DOA: Dead or Alive. I haven't seen it (and I doubt I ever will) but as always the reviews haven't been positive. Though I have heard the action sequences are well made, the 'story' if there is one isn't worth the film its made on. So for me, it's another title to throw on the dissapointing pile, especially if you are a fan of the franchise and have seen some of the impressive cut scenes developed for Dead or Alive 4. Which brings me to the first point. Besides possibly Mortal Kombat & Tomb Raider, which stayed close to the material it was based on, why is it production companies constantly chop and change scripts, turning the movie into something that simply has the same title or characters yet the premise is completly lost within the haze of visual effects. My other point reverts back to those video games that have an effective and entertaining world in which a movie can be based on. The Legend of Zelda and, dare I say it, Metal Gear Solid, are two such titles. ?
