This. I think the story of a movie and a game are just too different. A movie is restricted on time, where a game (or a book/show/other) can have a story that is hours upon hours long and can have important plot points that are spread out and too numerous and important to be left out. If they try to cram an entire story from a game (provided it has a decent story line to begin with, I suppose CoD would fit into a movie) it ends up feeling rushed the entire time as it is a completely different pace. Compare that to a story unfolding in a game, it is usually slower, finding things out as you go along and experience things within the game. The way they are told is also different. In a game, its usually told mostly through the perspective of the main character/s, or whatever characters you are given control over throughout the game. You might be shown other bits of information that the characters dont know, but for the most part you know what the character knows. In a movie, you are often times aware of more than the characters know, but that largely depends on the movie.

It also depends what part of a story they want to cover, and how much they want to stick to the original story. I would imagine its hard to stay close to the original story of a video game (that has a good story) and make it an interesting ~2 hour movie.

I suppose it comes down to the director. Its not impossible, but I cant think of one good example of a movie derived from a game.

Goldeneye on N64 was good. But that was a game about a movie.

No, it was awful. The only good part is the nudy girl and you know it. tongue.gif Well, I suppose some of the action was okay, but the acting was terribad and so was the cinematography. They could have done so much with that film...

["Though Fox and New Regency will be far more than mere distributors in this deal, Ubisoft also plans to maintain a high level of hands-on involvement with the flick to keep it true to the source material. Hollywood insiders claim that the developer's demands for more control over the flick were what killed its distribution deal with Sony Pictures..."

Now they say that like it's a bad thing that Ubi isn't willing to destroy their franchise just so they can say that Hollywood deemed them adequate enough to fart something out. Video games shouldn't be made into movies and vice versa. Different mediums and they don't translate.

Honestly, the only question they need to ask themselves, "Is there anything we can add to this story?" I promise the answer will almost always be "no." Fassbender is a decent actor, and I'm sure he'll do justice to Altair, but honestly when the best that you can hope for is to be almost as good, then why are you bothering?
