My Dream Game to Movie Adaptions

This is a list of games that I believe would make great cinematic experiences. I left some creative ideas on the side for each game adaption. Enjoy!

After witnessing one of the most beautiful stories in a video game, I reflected on this game hard on the idea that Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem would make an excellent piece of cinema. Basically, I would like to see it with an adapted script covering the best and most vital parts of the game as well as keep the first couple of scenes very similar to the game. Just as Shyamalan did with the first few minutes of The Last Airbender, it followed very close to the 1st episode of the show.

Some of my favorite early cut scenes of the game is when a man shows Alex the death of her grandfather. I really want that scene to be almost an exact copy of the game. It is so perfect!

Rated R for disturbing sequences of graphic violence, frightening images, and intense psychological menace.

Runtime: 192 min (3 hrs and 12 min)
After playing this epic game full of 16 giant bosses and beautiful cut scenes, who in their right mind did not imagine the possibilities of turning this into a film? Thinking about it makes me go crazy. Now, the final cut of this potential work of art would require taking the most impressive bosses in the game. I see this as a revolutionary opportunity to change cinema. Shadow of the Colossus would be seen as the one spectacle epic that would change the hearts of audiences, become a powerful movement of change to humanity, and be the 1st film in history to sweep 16 Academy Awards. I can only dream!

Now, I will add that this movie should seriously be shot with a bunch of long takes for most of the boss battles. It is kind of like the game in that regards. You are almost looking at Wander as if the camera is being controlled by the gamer. I see potential to this idea. Movies like Gravity and Children of Men come to mind when it comes to long takes on epic action sequences.

I also feel that the shots made on the locations of the forbidden land should feel grand and mystical. Almost like Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The companionship between Wander and his Horse become so emotionally involved that the most depressing cut scene in the game will hit the audience hard when it happens.

I feel the style of this game would progress from a light intro to darker territories. As Wander progresses through the story defeating one enemy after the other, we notice physical and psychological changes. It leads to a very tragic style of storytelling with so much at stake. There is going to be some violent sequences. The most violent parts happen late in the film. Near the end, when things start to look worse, it is lessened by the fact that Wander does not bleed red anymore.

Rated R for sequences of graphic violence, frightening images, and disturbing moments.

Runtime: 196 min (3 hrs and 16 min)
This would make a great action-packed horror adaption. Not only does Resident Evil 4 have an interesting story full of memorable characters, it is also very beautiful to look at. Imagining this into a film is not too bad of an idea. As Leon progresses into the story, he becomes psychologically affected by this feeling of isolation (after losing communications) and the amount of lives he needs to kill in order to save one life. I want this movie to explore a lot of psychological, philosophical, and political themes.
