Definitely a Metal Gear Solid movie.

Also Zone of the Enders and Ace Combat 5 as well as every Final Fantasy.

I'm sure there are more I'd like to see but i can't think of them at the moment.

I think a Splinter Cell movie is in production.

I wouldn't mind seeing a Half-Life movie, personally.

Besides, they're making a Halo movie. What could be better than a Halo movie?
Although it has been stated, I feel I must reiterate.

As much as I would like to have seen the Halo movie come to fruition, it appears that Hollywood politics would not allow for it. Bottom line is, the budget for the movie was just too much. The producers bailed as well as the studio I think. For a while the movie just kinda sat around waiting for someone else to take up the project, but it was not to be. For all intents and purposes, the Halo movie is dead, unless someone decides to take up the project again.

I'm actually a little surprised that nobody else brought this up, but what about a Mega Man movie?

Okay, when I started this thread, the idea was to figure out what games would make good movies. Then I come back to find that over half the posts on the front page are about how video game moves suck and why they shouldn't be made into movies.

C'mon people, I am aware that most video game movies tend to suck. Which is why I said in the beginning that we should assume that they would be made well into movies. That said, I would like to hear your opinions as to which games would make good movies and why.

Anyway...

More movies I would like to see:

Devil May Cry, Mechwarrior, and maybe a Shadow of the Collosus movie/series.

Pretty much anything? I've never been a fan of Halo and after playing through the first game, I honestly have no idea what everyone's so excited over. As for a Kingdom Hearts movie, it seems like it'd be tough to condense everything into a movie. Something like Resident Evil would work well as a movie, but they absolutely BUTCHERED the first game's story until it only slightly resembled RE1.
They did a pretty good job with the manga, so a Kingdom Hearts movie could be possible if it was like that. (I forgot about Mechwarrior. >_<)

Shadow of Colossus???

Wonderful!!!

but im wondering how they would fit every fight in 2~3 hours without butchering some of them...granted that,it would also need a bit of storyline as the game offers little to none

Hmm...

Seeing a movie based off Warhammer 40,000 might be interesting as well. (I know its not a true videogame, but I think it might still count).

Crimson Skies would be another interesting movie (Although it might get compared to sky captain a lot)

A Starcraft movie would be an interesting twist as well.

Don't care what anyone else says! Phoenix Wright should become a movie.

I'd like to see a movie based on Knights of the Old Republic as well

Silent Hill? An ok effort but again, same problem with RE. Why do they have to butcher the storyline anyway? Not to mention that I just don't get the same feeling of dread from the games. Hnh. At a superficial (non-gamer) level, SH worked but for the purists? No sir, it just fell flat. Palatable but flat.
I'm looking forward to postal since the game I felt was so unbuyablely bad (fun but not something I'd waste money on) that is can only bring about hilarious results, which already is a given for how bad boll's movies are. *looks around for uwe to make sure he isn't going to run up and punch him*


Silent Hill, ahh :D

I loved the movie and I'm as a diehard fan as one can come, I even purchased those really awful comic books. I'm thinking if they kept it to how the games are and without Red Pyramid then we would be left with 2 action scenes and hardly any violence. I sure as hell didn't want to see Harry run around for a good hour killing one or two monsters at a time then take another half hour to solve some mindless puzzle.

The thing was I went in with no expectation of how it would be, had I gone in thinking it would be like the game I would have left pissed. Maybe it is me but I felt Christoph Gans did an excellent adaptation of the series, and I hope a second will come about. It probably helps though that Akira Yamaoka was an executive producer and over saw the shoot. He is one of the last members of team silent that still work at konami, as well as his own music. I just wish Takayoshi Sato over saw the shoot or monster design since I feel his did great work on silent hill 2 and the CGI sequences of SH1

I'd like to see a Metroid movie. It would be neat if someone like James Cameron got on board and worked on it!

You seem to have left out a major example of when Video Games and Movies generally will and do not mix: Super Mario Brothers.

Heh I know that it would be probably be past its prime now but how about a River City Ransom movie?

Just two guys fighting in battle scenes for 2 hours while having the title fight song play for most of it. :P (You all know how it goes).

To be honest, I'd pay to see that. :)
