At the end of the day, very little has been revealed about these projects, and they might have some great ideas, but fundamentally these games shouldn�t work as movies. They�re just too complex to be worked into a single, linear story.
As I noted before, I�d like to see what a filmmaker could do with more linear titles like Call of Duty
or even Halo
, since those games are pretty much one-way affairs without a great deal of choice, and if the source material was treated with respect I�m sure they could turn out great.
Games now have the ability to make millions of dollars, and can be played in almost everybody�s home. Believing that a film adaptation could in some way raise the profile or accessibility of a game just feels insulting; not only to the game and its creators, but to the fans as well.
