It has Robert Patrick and Kate Vernon. It's perfectly cheesy.

Half-Life

Duke Nukem

Borderlands

Obviously a complete script & storyline would have to be fabricated for any of them as simply using the game storyline just wouldn't work (though that wouldn't stop Uwe Boll ).

As long as the afore-mentioned wannabe director has nothing to do with it any of them could possibly work as movies.

Is Gears of War still being made into a movie, or has that idea been binned already?

Seriously, after the mangling that Max Payne got during the "movie treatment"; and the very un-doom like Doom film I don't really have much faith in movies based on games.

In principle they should work well; in practice they always manage to screw them up completely.

So far I think my favourite game-movie cross over are the Tomb Raider films; but I'm not a fan of the games so that almost certainly gives me an advantage.

It just needs a little creative liberty. For the last five years I have been slowly writing a novel based on Unreal Tournament, but from a different perspective. It takes place in a setting where most of the Tournament contenders were forced to fight against their will and the respawner technology caused neat things like cancer and sickness that would kill them off after repeated respawns. Imagine if Liandri Corporation was Nazi Germany and you have a pretty good idea of how most of the contenders were treated.

In any case, Liandri's ruins are just the backstory; the novel itself takes place about a decade after the contenders have risen up and overthrown the Tournament hierarchy. The story focuses on a group of Tournament survivors who were known as the greatest warriors humanity had to offer, and their struggle to defeat an unknown alien force that suddenly appeared, declared War on humanity, and glassed Earth. Of course, there is much more going on behind the scenes that tie everything together, but I'm not going to spoil that for you

Fallout 1 with THE MASTER

also the idea written in the post above is something I always thought it was cool after seeing UT2k4, UT3 and UC2.

Thanks, but this story is based solely (and loosely) on the original Unreal Tournament game and does not take any of the sequels into account.

Spider Solitaire might be too violent for the average viewer.

Yeah, and it has mill burray ffs.

But yeah, Zombieland is fun. First half is better though, but that's all down to opinion I guess.

Because money.
