Default Games that should be made into a movie

Didn't know where this should go, but what games do you think should be made into a movie? I think Halo should be made into a movie, and was going to be made by the Peter Jackson and Weta team of Lord of the Rings and King Kong fame. However, while there are numerous shorts on youtube and a working Warthog (which is currently on my Christmas list), the production is on hiatus or canned (hopefully not the latter).

So how about you? What games should be made into movies?

How about Metal Gear Solid, Far Cry Instincts, Bioshock, Perfect Dark, and Mass Effect.

In todays Climate with Iran, I reckon that a film about a stolen WMD would be just perfect. COD4.

Anyone who says Dawn of War should get a bullet in the face.

Tom Clancy Rainbow 6, or Splinter Cell should get a mention. And so should "The Hobbit".

If someone made a Resident Evil movie that was actually about the f**king game, I think it would be one of the best zombie flicks ever made. Just thinking about watching someone make their way through that mansion with real life graphics gives me the chills!

I'd love to see the Halo movie get going, and I'd also like Mass Effect, I think. Assassin's Creed would make a good movie, too.

You'll forgive me, but you must be mistaken. I've met your makers, and they don't even know your name...

Its not a video, and technically not a real game, just a fictional one used for comedic purposes on 'That Mitchell and Webb look' but I would definitely go to see 'The Wangernumb Code'-based on the game numberwang


Do not disallusion yourself brothers, today we die, our bodies broken and our souls shattered, we will be remembered as corpses on a battlefield.Raise hell my brothers for one day our great Father will hear of our struggle, and he will be honoured to call us his Sons. In death our Glory shall become eternal.' Karik Farron, 1st Lord of the Dark Scorchers at the Fall of Kempar.
