the problem with Films based on Games is because Directors and Producers Arent really Trully fans of the Video Games Franchises. In the majority of the cases They never played the game or just played a few times.

The only thing I found disappointing about the Assassin's Creed movie is that there was no sequel

I’m sorry, but did everybody forget about the original Mortal Kombat movie? The opinion may have changed, but I remember people saying the OG Mortal Kombat film was the best fighting game movie and even arguably the best video game movie until Detective Pikachu.
Btw I’m not talking about Mortal Kombat Annihilation, that movie is absolute shit.

You forgot to mention that the witcher show also works, not just because it's a show, but because it is based on actual novels

I am 100% sure that video game movies can work. You need a game with deep enough world to create your own main character. Exploring some video game worlds as someone who is not "the chosen one" could be really fucking interesting. And how is living in this world with such "chosen ones". I think this has potential. But as you said: it has to be the right game, like e.g. bioshock doesnt work from anyone elses perspective really, no matter wich bioshock we are talking about.
Dont get me wrong, a film will never reach the potential a game has. I still think there are some good ideas to explore.

I think the argument is a bit to the extreme, but I think a lot of the points are valid. The extremity is that I think “video game movies” are possible but good ones have not come out yet. I think studio interference and general lack of true vision and inspiration for the movies is a large part of why they fail. There used to be a similar curse with super hero video games in the 2000s and 2010s with activism pumping out crappy cash grabs until rocksteady blew everyone outta the water with the Arkham games. I think the right artist and the right franchise just have to come together. Give Ari Aster a Silent Hill film. Give Cary Fukunaga a RDR series. Just some examples of what I think would be great, but I have my fingers crossed that we will see a faithful adaptation of a video game UNIVERSE and lore rather than an actual “video game movie”. Also, I know it’s been used as an example but the LEGO Movies are pretty close to good video game movies. The Jumanji films (new and old) are fun.

The only universe that I could see it taking place in a video game universe is the last of us or something like that. Where you can make characters all working towards a goal and have different perspectives instead of just one.

I think it’s possible to make a good video game movie, but under one rather big restriction. If you want to make a video game movie, make it a unique narrative set within the world of the game. Some games such as Skyrim, Fallout, etc have really interesting world building and settings that would lend well to making narratives set in them.

After seeing dective pikachu and the sonic movie i think video game movies are turning over a new leaf, granted the original design of sonic in the movie looked rubbish but the final design looked pretty good

Honestly the solution is just to make a spin off for the game franchise so you dont have to rely on the story in the game but you get to keep the title and you get to relate the stuff in the movie like e.g. Easter eggs, natural laws, characters and so on to the game*s

Video Game movies will solve the problem with interaction by giving the theater audience quick time poll game play. There can be multiple endings and new content with new sequel come out. This boosts rewatch ability. Giving us a new experience with everyone in the theater! What do you guys think?
Ooooo what if audiences are randomly given roles for video game movies. Thus you have characters in the movie can be accidentally hilarious! All these experiences can’t be replicated when coming to home video. But yeah! This is the future!!!

Ah yes bioshock, the only game that wouldnt work as a movie, if you pick any other game that is heavily story based it would work way better, bioshock would work as a movie if it was just another story in the bioshock universe, i liked ur content until you picked the one game that wouldnt work to try to prove your point.

"Uncharted cannot be turned into a movie" on stfu already. Prince of Persia has alot of climbing and acrobatic moves, yet still the movie did ok. Your channel is depressing as fuck, your shitty lazy ass voice is also depressing, you don't like shit. "Best spider man game is spider man ps1" what a fucking dbass

It is possible to make a good video game movie... god just isn’t that kind.
Remember there was supposed to be a Halo Combat Evolved movie directed by fucking STEVEN SPIELBERG and fucking PETER JACKSON??? That shit would have been dope as fuck. The production company went bankrupt tho and the movie never got made
