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.
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.
wouldnt it bee cool to have star trek movies and tv shows ?
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
