    We all know about a few Game to Movie franchises like the Resident Evil Series and Mortal Kombat. Most of them are poor in comparison to their host games. What if you could watch High Quality movies with lots of stars and great graphics?
    Which franchises would you choose to have on the menu? In order to qualify your choice must be able to sustain at least 4 full-length feature films and a TV series. All live-action.

    Here are some of my choices:

    WarHammer 40,000

    StarCraft

    WarCraft

    Mech Warrior

    Unreal

    Command & Conquer

    Red Faction

    Dino Crisis

    Quake

    Half-Life

    Doom - good
    Streetfighter - I thought this was okay actually!
    Tron - hmm, average
    House of the Dead - okay
    Resident Evil - good

    When it comes down to the nitty gritty, I think games can make good films/tv series. The issues related to converting novels with specific storylines to media has major issues that can be avoided here if just the characters image, attitudes and storyline is followed in a minor way.

    Eve Online and WoW have novels for the fans, why not films/tv? Even if B movie class! So, it's not merely a case of which to convert, but when :)

    I'd like to see Metroid made into a movie.

    Bioshock, love this game!

    just think if it where to be directed by Guillermo Del Toro, someone like that with his rich visuals, is one of the only directors who could do the bioshock world any justice

    Out of all the video game movies made, I still watch MORTAL KOMBAT the most, and it still has the best soundtrack too.
