Hi gang, been awhile and I been busy like you wouldn't believe. But I am back now that things have settled down around me. lol

So this weeks topic from me.

What game would make a good TV show or Movie? We had a few in the past make a cross over.

Examples:

Clue the Movie

Mario Brothers

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtMZKYnLg5c

even Street Fighter

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9hatLT-vl4

So in your mind what game would be great as a TV show or Movie, be it board game or video game or whatever type game. Lets hear some ideas!

BTW I have two picks.

1. Mass Effect as a TV show. I think it could hold it's own as a weekly TV show, and it would be most excellent for viewing on a Friday night.

2. Star Wars The Force Unleashed as a Movie. Disney wants a spinoff movie, well this could be a great spinoff from the main story. Make it happen Disney, and many the Force be with us all.

Halo. A war that scale has got to have tons of great stories.

Axis & Allies: Iron Blitz - the game failed because of a weak AI, but it had the concept of mixing up the starting countries for each player. So by extention we'd be talking about an alternate universe WWII where anything goes. I'd like it in a mild dieselpunk format, where the altered war can gradually design devices never seen in our world.

Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri colonization space saga.

Freelancer. Compelling story, big universe. Enough similarities that it would probably interest the Firefly Browncoat fans.

If you don't know what that is, i'd advise googling it to much info and it's a game that's worth a read through of the synopsis.

Oh oh I have a great game that should be made into a TV show.

Ultima game series! Not that Ultima online version, but the stand alone ones.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultima_(series)

It would make for a great TV series, and you can kick it off with this guy in current times. Maybe he loves to play the role playing games, and knows all the facts of every game there is to be played. Then one day someone introduces him to a new game call Ultima, but it's more than just a game, as he finds out later. Just like in the 1st game, he gets summoned to Sosaria to defeat the evil wizard Mondain.

Each game could be 1 season of a TV series.

Season 1 - The First Age of Darkness

Season 2 - The Revenge of the Enchantress

Season 3 - Exodus

If there are good writers and actors, we could get a few more seasons.

Season 4 - Quest of the Avatar

Season 5 - Warriors of Destiny

Season 6 - The False Prophet

Still lasting even longer, you can switch out cast, and bring back others that left the show. Then get even more Seasons!

Season 7 - The Black Gate/ Serpent Isle

Season 8 - Pagan

Season 9 - Ascension

I think it can work out, if done right it would be a great show. Oh details of the games I posted as season is located at the link.

I had a thread about it ages ago. i got completly spammed for even thinking it .
I thought they could base a show around the episodes like the 2800,
Or jsut follow the Enterprise F.
of at worst randomly pick a captain from the game and make a cgi episode using tht bridge crew lol

It's very cool. No need to apologize. I was just announcing there was now a herd of "black sheep", to use your term, interested in Freelancer.

Did I mention Homeworld? I'd really like to see the journey of the Higaarans and the sequel, brought to the screen.
