    Pac-Man was actually acquired by a studio to be turned into a CGI film. Castlevania is actually being made...by the director of Event Horizon, Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil...should be average at the best [​IMG]

    Every game I can think of that should be made into a film is actually either being turned into one or was until the rights ran out but Day of the Tentacle could work.

    I always thought zelda would make a good movie. I wouldn't have Link speak though, I'd leave that to his little fairy friend

    Outcast and Mafia, they had stories pretty much on movie level already. Also Pac Man, if it's made by the same guys who did the trailer on YouTube... [​IMG] And I want an Ouendan anime series. [​IMG]

    I agree max payne would be amazing but it wouldent all game to movies are mostly crappy.

    Abes Oddworld & Abes Exodus

    The CGI in those games was WAY ahead of its time and the movie would look amazing if made in the same style.
