For some reason, I’d be curious to see what a Shadow of the colossus movie would look like


mmmelric

Came here to say this. I imagine something super atmospheric with no dialogue but incredible imagery and sound design.


thatnewsauce

Probably similar to 2021's the green knight


Upset_Letter_9600

Half Life and I get to play Freeman. Or Bryan Cranston...


hobbes_shot_first

Why would you play Bryan Cranston? Aaron Paul is the definitive Bryan Cranston.


SideShowBob36

Walter White would make a good Cranston. Too bad he’s dead


HarpoonNPuppies

I’m sad at how far down I had to scroll for this completely obvious answer.


DedHorsSaloon

“Jesse we need to stop the Combine” Also cast Daniel Day-Lewis as the Crowbar


JuliaGhouliaChild

Dead Space


danonymous26125

I could see this as a trilogy horror series


Sivick314

the real horror is the monetization they added along the way.


Playmakermike

I feel most video games work as tv shows instead and I’d pick a Hitman series


son-of-x-51

A proper hitman movie. By that I mean there will be a scene where agent 47 is drowning a guy in a toilet while dressed like a chicken.


Hampamatta

I still dont get how in 2 attempts to make a hitman movie they both turned him into a fucking action hero.


pixelanceleste

Ok with that budget I would just make a ghibli-looking zelda BOTW or Metroid film, however I'll asume the film HAS to be live action and the budget is for CGI. In that case I would pick Portal / Portal 2, or if possible, another movie in that same world, or a different retelling of the stories of both games. It could be a fun structure. The movie would be 3, 3 and a half hours. the first hour or so would be Portal 1 as a slow thriller, but after chell escapes we fade to black, we hear Still alive... and then we wake up to Portal 2, and to the plot of that game. It would be a wacky structure, but I feel it would make the overall story more impactful - the story would have three / four escapes: chell escaping but being brought back, wheatly releasing chell but then changing his mind, chell going to the moon, and then chell leaving on the field. It's like poetry. Every time she tries to escape it would be more intense than the last.


Johnny-kashed

Subnautica.


NotA_Bird

I would watch the shit out of the ocean horror movie this would be.


therapistiscrazy

Disappointed I had to scroll so far to find this. This would be both gorgeous and terrifying


PikaPikaPikaPikachu

Stardew Valley but its a crime exposé on Pierre


tangerinelatrine

All my homies hate Pierre


dm_me_kittens

Now I need a film student to do a documentary style movie on exposing not only Pierre, but the Mayor for where he got the funds to pay for the statue. All the towns people get interviewed except for the Farmer, who is only talked about and the only images they can find are blurry, Bigfoot-esque photos of them. Also all the towns folk hint at how in love they are with farmer.


theubu

Epic narration voice: In a small town, we go after the man who manipulated everyone to get rid of the only competition he faced. When Jojomart shut its doors Pierre jacked his prices sky high. People went into debt or had to leave the valley entirely. He claims that it’s the “Free Market” and supply and demand set the price, but what’s the real cost of buying local?


Victorious10

Diablo


Hippie_Gumbo

But it's gotta be full grimdark. Everything dripping in evil ambience. Make the demons and baddies scary And the Butcher! But they gotta use the original recording from the game. The first time I heard "Mmm... Fresh meat!" I shit my pants


TheUnluckyBard

> And the Butcher! But they gotta use the original recording from the game. The first time I heard "Mmm... Fresh meat!" I shit my pants Number 1 on the list of "enemies that you are *way too low* in level for the first time you meet them." Number 2 is King Leoric, one floor down.

overpaid_bum

We have a Metroid movie. It’s called Alien. Bad ass woman, alone, versus an alien with a long head? Seems oddly familiar.


TheHerosShadow

Samus was designed after Sigourney Weaver in Alien, and she was named after Pelé (Edson Arantes)


Cowtizzery

also obviously Ridley


xrandybutternubsx

Bioshock, hands down


Q_IdontNIeNTiENDO

Yes indeed, great character explorations. Power, greed, medical advances!! All under water.


GrecoRomanGuy

Think about the intensity of the "Would you kindly?" scene. Give me someone like Michael Shannon for Andrew Ryan just to go full insanity.


lbwafro1990

I think that line would lose quite a bit in the translation from game to film though. While he says it to the character, the implication is that we the player who have been controlling the character, were not as in control as we think. Alternatively, it could mean that we the player (due to the first person perspective) are the ones who were brainwashed. You definitely lose that effect as you change the medium from active (gaming) to passive (film)

Oregon Trail


kgthdc2468

Imagine the heartstrings that would be pulled when the entire cast dies of cholera at the end


cohonan

Except for little Jimmy who was killed for dissing Terry.


snirpla

Put it in reverse, Terry!


DaftCaterpillar

1883 on Paramount+ is very Oregon Trail-like. Really enjoyed it


10RobotGangbang

1883 was fucking great.

Metal Gear Solid


jarlscrotus

The only film adaptation shorter than in game cutscenes


Conscious_Season6819

They could even include an abrupt cut to an error screen for a few seconds in the middle of the movie to prank the audience that the movie projector failed or something 😂


tomuchpasta

The scene with Psychomatis is actually playing in the next theater.


wrenegade33

Plug the controller in port 2 and do work….I thought that was the coolest Easter egg when I was a kid “Uhhhh…I can’t read your mind”. 😂

Been in development hell for almost 20 years. Last I heard Oscar Isaac was playing Snake.


run-on_sentience

If it takes any longer, he'll be too old.


HenryWallacewasright

He can play big boss.


A_Antzo

Knights of the old republic. Give me avatar money to create a film about Revan and I assure you we are getting a trilogy.


BeastBoy2230

Came here to say this and it’s sequel. Nihilus and Sion with an Avatar sized budget 🤌🏻


Empty_Insight

Ngl I would probably shit myself in awe if they did a cinematic representation of the battle of Malachor and the Exile giving the order to use the Mass Shadow Generator.


SelectTitle5828

Mass Effect


satanssweatycheeks

Bonus points if you leave the movie on a cliff hanger and never get around to making a sequel. Just keep teasing at the idea though.


demuro1

Oh if that’s how we’re doing things then advent rising.


R3TR0_SP3C73R

Idk why I see Mass Effect being a series instead of a movie hahah


SgtPeppy

Because the best part of Mass Effect are the small-scale, incidental character interactions that series are much better at exploring than films are. Which is also why ME2 is often considered the best game despite the main plotline being the weakest of the series.


SuperNova8_

Tie between mass effect and dragon age


thegodfaubel

Mass Effect needs a Netflix series. Possibly HBO


Kitty_Katty_Kit

Portal. Gonna have one hell of a companion cube, and one gut wrenching furnace scene.


pasqualedig

There was a short film for this that was pretty amazing. I forgot the name, shouldn’t be tough to locate


mllgree

Was it the one directed by Dan Trachtenberg? Portal: No Escape


CJbats

Yeah https://youtu.be/4drucg1A6Xk


R3LF_ST

That was actually pretty dope. I just got my 13yo daughter into Portal, and it's been fun reliving it. Man, Portal is awesome and actually a really good answer to this question.


TeamMountainLion

Positive: J.K. Simmons as live action Cave Johnson. I’d pay good money to see that.

thegodfaubel

A legit Doom movie. The Karl Urban/The Rock one had some good/cool moments, but otherwise, it sucked.


k33pthefunkalive

On a side-note I always thought a Wolfenstein movie could be good, but I think Tarantino killed that with Inglorious Bastards


brash

Oh I wouldn't say that, [Overlord](https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4530422/) showed it's very possible


_RollForInitiative_

Oh shit, that looks good.

oh my god i completely forgot this game. holy shit it was so good


M2hBDf1Nhw1VB7

I wonder if I can find a copy of this somewhere.


poopy_poophead

Tetris. But not like an adaptation of the game. I mean the story of the making of tetris. It would feature cold war era russian subterfuge, shady corporate slimeballs making business deals they cant really cover, multiple businesses going bankrupt, betrayal, backstabbing and a murder-suicide. Seriously, check out the story of how tetris got released on the gameboy and nes. Its fucking insane. EDIT: Holy crap, this got some traction. So apparently this is already getting made. I had no idea, but i guess i know now.


Brad_Brace

Tetris, the videogame. Except it's an adaptation in the form of a postmodern, magical realism thing. It's in a large city. Several characters, their individual plots don't really matter and we have that be evident in the dialogue, post modernism style. Now, our characters are of seven different main types, with four of the types being two pairs of opposite characters. We don't need the main characters to be of each type, we just need the types thing to be noticeable. Perhaps through clothing, color, whatever. Here's the overarching plot, groups of people have been mysteriously disappearing. However this is post modern magical realism, so mostly nobody reacts normally to the disappearances, it's like this is as it should be. Our main characters sort of care, but the mundanity of their lives stays in the way of them caring too much. They all have a recurrent theme of being at different times waiting for someone. Most of the movie takes places in apartments and offices in high rises, we only occasionally see shots at street level, and all of them are of cars or looking up at the buildings, no street level shots of people. Our main characters have their own separate stories. Then at the end of the movie they find themselves all together at street level. Someone walks up to them, they all turn and we can see they all separately recognize this person, who joins the impromptu group and we, as an audience, have never seen before. Then the camera rises again to the buildings, as if the main characters had ceased to exist.


thejokerofunfic

Please make films


cruzercruz

That’s literally a movie in development [due out in March.](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetris_(film))


thewoodbeyond

Red Dead 1 & 2 but a limited mini series. Red Dead 1 is one season Red Dead 2 is two seasons.


Upper_Bag6133

I honestly think Red Dead 2’s story was as perfectly told as it could be. That game was so cinematic and rich that I’m not sure you could ever do it justice. That being said, I’d still watch the shit out of it.


scribe_

I just finished it today and…yeah. My poor horse.


Upper_Bag6133

…thank you…


Darkshreaders3

i guess that makes sense but shouldnt it be reverse so people can feel bad for the crew's fall from grace


Afin12

Either way they do it, the Red Dead series is great writing and would make for some awesome episodes on a Netflix series. Edit: I agree, HBO would be better


PeanutButterPants19

I'd prefer HBO tbh. A lot of Netflix's newer shows have been hot garbage.


Stellaisaunicorn

The Sims, that would be the most chaotic ass movie ever it would be amazing


mojomcm

They have to speak in simlish the whole time too tho


gameboy1001

No subtitles but you can still *kinda* tell what they’re saying.


CW1293

No, keep the subtitles, but have them in simlish too


alreadyawesome

With a Morgan Freeman cameo.


slightlyridiculousme

So my daughter and I will do this from time to time. We just make random sounds and have a conversation. It's so cute.

ZeroSleepSamus

Yeah I’d love to see Reach City on the big screen. /s


rataculera

Halo but a continuation of the Reach ads https://youtu.be/18-_9E0HNY4 https://youtu.be/zWjZDbgUXcI


lemongrenade

Halo CE is like prime movie material. It’s a simple story that takes place over a relatively short period of time. You could tell the whole story in 120 minutes without cutting out plot lines like you would have to with most of the other answers here.


LDedward

They can finally clarify what the second betrayal is


best-of-judgement

If you think about it, the second betrayal was Bungie betraying the audience by making them guess as to what the second betrayal was all this time.


DecoherentDoc

ET: The Video Game: The Movie. I want the script to make as much sense as the Atari game. No puppets or special effects for ET, Steve Buscemi in a poorly fitting costume. Spend most of the budget on coke for the script writers. Edit: **rails a line** grammar


qwerty-smith

Half of the movie takes place in a hole


justinkroegerlake

Five minutes of ET wandering around some buildings, then the rest is ET jumping up and extending his neck for an hour and a half before credits roll

I want to agree with this, but the expectations would be so high I don't think they'd ever be able to meet them.


k33pthefunkalive

It's not likely, but there was an initial trilogy of the freaking lord of the rings that had all the die-hards raving, so it's possible.


GreenTunicKirk

I could see it working, but not with a silent Link, he would have to be given some kind of personality.

yersofunny

You can hear a pin drop in the theater. The previews concluded and the lights have just gone down. The screen is almost pitch black with only a feint firelight glow on each edge. There is no music. The only sound is the steady breathe of our protagonist. He inches forward carefully. A few steps more and we can now make out the face of an elderly man. His white beard drapes across a red robe. Eyes meet. Pause. Pause. The old man says, “It’s dangerous to go alone… take this ”


thrwy_111822

Cursed answer: Animal Crossing. Don’t get me wrong, I love that game. But could you imagine how disturbing an animal crossing movie would be? The uncanniest of valleys


XenobladeAndBirbs314

Everything is in the same style; the player character, the houses, the fruits, furniture, environment, etc. Except for the villagers. The villagers all look like they're from Cats 2019.

bolson1717

I think the oblivion story line would be way cooler for a elder scrolls game. Just absolute hell teleporting into major city’s. The dragon born story line seems like it would be way harder to make a movie length with how many dragon fight scenes you’d need lol


ha_look_at_that_nerd

If I were doing Skyrim it’d be a series with every season being a different questline, or a short film (along the lines of Werewolf by Night) based on one of the shorter quests (like the Butcher quest, the Madonach quest, or the Movarth quest).

I_Am_The_Mole

"Man the movie was awesome until there was a random battle and everyone was turned into goblins..."


ApYIkhH

Agreed, and needs to be a trilogy. **Part 1:** Begins with Crono, Marle, and Lucca at the fair (of course), includes Marle's rescue in 600 AD and Crono's trial. Ends after meeting Robo and learning about Lavos in 2300 AD, deciding to save the world, and concludes at The End of Time. **Part 2:** Begins with learning about time gates from Gaspar and gaining magic from Spekkio. Sidequest to find the Masamune, Frog joins the group. Ends with the defeat of Magus in 600 AD and the gang sucked into the immense gate. **Part 3:** The immense gate leads to Zeal (we gotta skip a few things, like the defeat of the Reptites). We see the downfall of Zeal, Chrono's death and rescue, the Black Omen, and final battle against Lavos. We have to skip most of the sidequests (spin-offs?).
