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

even Street Fighter

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.

Simply the best space sim I've ever played. It had a great story about megacorporations vs colonists on the fringes of known space. It had crazy pirates, cool ships, epic space battles, the lot. AND it had Bruce Campbell!

Would make a great TV show. In the game the player chooses to side with either the megacorporation or the colonists. You could do both in the show. Like every other episode is from one perspective or the other. Could offer some interesting opportunities, like seeing some of the same battles or events from both sides.

Could even get The Chin himself to star in it... assuming that Burn Notice will ever end.

Mass effect would be a brilliant tv series set over 4 or 5 years. The game is all ready very cinematic to begin with so it should work as a tv show. It always reminded me of babylon 5 as I played it, and i loved that show.

Personally, I would like to see things based off of "Rise of Legends". That was such a bosstastic game, but no one knows about it. :'(

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.
