    I think Protoype would make an awesome blockbuster movie - its loud, pointless, violent - Prototype: Origins or something...

    And I've always thought Diablo would make a decent film for some reason..

    Except in the (multiple) cases of Uwe Boll

    I'm actually thinking it's for the better that the Metal Gear Solid movie is dead, I really doubt they could have done the game justice. The Prince of Persia movie looks like it might actually be reasonably good, at least from what the trailer showed.

    I'm hoping for God of War movie awesomeness!

    and how did Hitman and Max Payne not have "actual plots and in depth characters" ????

    Frankly I've lost faith in games made from movies, they just butcher the story into some hollywood crap

    And there's a movie adaptation of WoW on the way as well - Sam Raimi will apparently be working on it.

    The Prince of Persia film looks like it might do the game some justice.

    The Resident Evil films should've died after the first one already, last one was the worst of the lot.
