MOVIES INTO GAMES AND GAMES INTO MOVIES

Post  MENTOK the MINDTAKER on Thu Jan 14, 2010 2:05 am

Personally I can't think of very many movies that have been converted into games that didn't royally suck.

On the other hand I know there's some games that have been converted into movies that were done quite well.

To list off some of the biggest abominations that first come to mind, see below:

MOVIES THAT WERE CONVERTED INTO SUCKY GAMES: In no particular order
All the LotR games
Spiderman Movie #1
Harvey Birdman (because whoever did Phil Ken Sebbens voice should be banned from ever doing it again)
Just about every Terminator game (cept maybe Redemption if your playing it on the xbox)
Harry Potter (you know which ones)
Aliens Vs Predator: Requiem
Transformers
Kung Fu Hustle (the horror!)
From Dusk Till Dawn

GAMES THAT WERE CONVERTED INTO SUCKY MOVIES: In no particular order
Bloodrayne (how the HELL could you screw that up? The game had a perfect storyline!)
Monopoly (not out yet but I'm highly pesimistic)
Tomb Raider
Alone in the Dark
The Super Mario Bros (I dare someone to honestly say the live action movie did the Mario bros justice)
Street Fighter
Mortal Kombat (though with todays technology, kicking back and watching MK on DVD is now hilarious)
From Dusk Till Dawn (i forget which one came first, both sucked equally imo)

Wait, what? There was a Harvey Birdman game?!

I actually liked the Mario bros movie >_> You could list the Pokemon movies up there; some are brilliant, but some are pretty bad. I'm looking at you, Destiny Deoxys.

Yep, it's on the PSP. My friend purchased a copy and while I love point and click games

Ala "Use Gun - On - Man"

It really was quite short and the person that did Phil's voice was TERRIBLE... on further thought, Harvey Birdman was never a movie. Oops. Embarassed

Not only was there a Harvey Birdman game, it was made BY Capcom & ripped on the Phoenix Wright engine Razz It even had a cameo appearance by Guile! (BTW, my Legend of Chun Li Blu-Ray, best X-mas gift I got ;P Muwahahaha)

Terminator,karate kid, um... idk if it would count as a movie, but the TMNT game was pretty bad... the indiana jones games , rambo , um... another idk if it will count, but star trek games, texas chainsaw, Halloween, independence day, ghostbusters, rocky, nightmare on elm street, back to the future.
(FYI- i'm getting these from AVGN reviews. If you don't believe me, look 'em up. )

Oh god, I completely forgot the terrible Game converted into a Movie that is "Resident Evil". The first one wasn't bad, I quite liked the second one... but the third one. ARGH!

And where the heck did they pluck the Alice character concept from? Telekinesis played no part in the Resident Evil mytho's what so ever... not to mention it's already nerfed everything that hasn't got the same ability. Wtf?

golden compass and chronicles of narnia were HORRIBLE games based off of AMAZING movies. what happened there?
oh and the eragon game...which was based off of an already bad movie. it didn't have a chance.

what about doom? i didn't think the movie they based off of it was all that good. entertaining but not the best movie out there

The best part of that movie was when it went First Person... oh and the end credits, wait.. what? Razz

Guy #1: I got about half a clip, you?
The Rock as he lifts the BFG: .... One round.

I liked that line Razz

I think chornicals of narnia was an' okay movie.. It was a little too much for me when they broke out the unicorns..
Seriously bro, you cannot look like an' epic MALE hero if you ride a unicorn..
My favorite thing is the giant lion guy. His voice is sexeh, but I don't want to spell is name because i'd probably turn it into some variation of the word 'ass'.
