Video Games That You Think Should Never Make It To The Big Screen

Okay so each year or so, there always happens to be that video game series that is selected for a live action adaptation. However, not all of these movies are really that good. It's almost like the sole intent of the directors is to skew the movie down to corny acting, repetitive and blah plots, and worst of all, the newfound shame brought to the video game series. Anyway, what I'm trying to ask you guys is, What video game series do you think Hollywood should leave alone!? In other words, what video game or series is far too epic to portray through 90 minutes of film and bad acting?

In my opinion... The Legend of Zelda, you can have any other game, but please no... just don't.




Dishonorable Mentions

WTF IS THIS

At least Van Damme isn't in this one

At least they got the name right...

  7. As long as they don't mess with Galaga I'm okay.

  8. Baldur's gate is certainly too epic for a movie!

  9. While I think that Metal Gear Solid could make for an interesting movie, it would no doubt be destroyed by Hollywood.

  11. Had never even heard about the Mario Bros one ha

  12. Wait they made a film about Super Mario Brothers?? Why? Why would you do that...

  13. Anything can be adapted into good movie, its naive to think otherwise. Video games just have the problem of no good directors or writers being behind them to do a serious job at it. Because the industry doesn't take them seriously, it took a while for the industry to even look at comic books seriously for movies.

    LoZ would be a challenge though since then main character doesn't really speak.

  14. I don't want to see Metal Gear Solid made into a movie. God that would blow.

  17. Remember the Zelda cartoon series? "Excuse me, princess."
    Motherfucker!

  18. a zelda movie would be cool, but it would ruin everyones perception of it

  19. Uwe Böll for Zelda, make it happen!

    Only a few game to movie adaptions I can imagine actually being good. One of them would be Uncharted.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Left 4 Dead just because the zombie genre has been beaten to death. I made a pun.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Some guy is making a Shadow of the Colossus movie. This fills me with dread and fear.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm gonna go out and say I liked the Tomb Raider movie.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Duke Nukem would be so fun to watch. :D

    ReplyDelete
  24. serious sam movie?? could be good

    ReplyDelete
  25. I actually think Zelda and Tomb Raider are good movies to take to the big screen

    of course only if they're done right

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't care what anyone says. The Resident Evil movies suck, are completely ridiculous, and should never have been made. All they do is take the setting and the characters and just swish everything around in their mouths until they spit it out all distorted and messed up.
    If anyone has seen the first movie and played RE4:
    Don't you think the part in RE4 where Leon dodges the lasers in a quick time event is a little shot at the first movie? (Cause in the movie the people don't dodge the lasers.)

  27. yeah, tetris is going to be a pretty boring movie.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Please never make Zelda into a movie.
    And agree with Justin H

  29. The tomb raider movie was worth it for the angelina sideboob IMO

    ReplyDelete
  30. I actually liked the super mario bros movie...

    ReplyDelete
  31. Tomb Raider was not so bad. I remember a movie where kids use Nintendo Power glove and win the game. Forgot the name, but the girl were hot in the movie.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I liked the Super Mario movie,but that may have been because I was young. I also liked the Mortal Kombat movies, but again, I was naive child.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I actually think a Zelda movie, if done right, would be really kickass. Would need the right director though.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'd say Metroid. Any attempt at adding character to Samus beyond "She fights space pirates for bounty money" is a recipe for disaster.

    ReplyDelete
  35. i think TombRider movie is not popular like the game

    ReplyDelete
  36. although i agree with video game movies usually being awful, hollywood needs to make a battletoads 3D movie right away!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Agreed, Zelda should have been left alone. It is cool that some people think the idea of a video game turned movie is a worthwhile endeavor, but without a competent, and lets face it, a PERSONAL GAMER as a DIRECTOR, things almost never go right. I'd like to say Tomb Raider were good movies, but have never truly played the games. Another bad example I think, is Prince of Persia

  38. As soon as there is a Zelda live action ..I'm gonna burn down theaters to save hundreds of innocent geeks and gamers from committing suicide after watching their childhood memories raped

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hey I liked the Mortal Kombat movies too, guess that makes us odd lol

    The Street Fighter movie wasn't nearly as cool

    Followed!
