Why videogame movie adaptations need new respect

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 3 years ago

Games 0

An anonymous reader writes "Hollywood has yet to find any videogame property it is willing to treat with the same respect as J.R.R. Tolkien or J.K.Rowling, arguably still following the principles that led to the appalling Super Mario Bros. movie in 1992: 'A game lacks the complexity that a movie requires'. Yet a modern videogaming masterpiece such as 'Mass Effect' has the depth and breadth to deserve better treatment in the proposed trilogy. Is Hollywood again going to disrespect fans who, in this case, have as much right to see a good plot respected as the readers of Lord Of The Rings? This article suggests why and how Hollywood should grow up regarding VG>movie adaptations."
