Poll: Which Video Game Needs a Movie Adaptation Right Now?Eric Walkuski |
This past week saw the internet in a frenzy over the latest E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo), which for gamers is like the Super Bowl meets Comic-Con. The first footage from the upcoming 'Need For Speed,' the latest game-to-movie adaptation, was shown, which got us wondering: which game do you want to hit the big screen?
Obviously, there are dozens of choices, but we're going to focus on some of the more popular game franchises today. There are the war games (Call of Duty, Ghost Recon), the sci-fi shooters (Metal Gear Solid, Gears of War, Halo), and unique spins on history (Red Dead Redemption, Assassin's Creed).
A few of these are even in the early stages of making it in front of cameras; yesterday we heard that Michael Bay might end up directing the 'Ghost Recon' film, while Michael Fassbender will be waging war against the Templars in Assassin's Creed.' A 'Gears of War' movie could be seen within the next few years, as well. We've come a long way since 'Super Mario Brothers' and 'Double Dragon,' kids.
So which of these games would you like to see made into a film? We've given you a nice handful of options, but if there's one we missed, don't hold back!
