While digging around for something else entirely, I found this list on games and their movie counterparts. No, not the terrible ‘movie of the game’, but films that happen to have the same name as a game.
But this brings up a more interesting thought – no-one ever made a game called ‘Predator’ (that wasn’t tied to the movies)?
Staying slightly on topic, Justin Marks – the guy behind the new Street Fighter movie script – makes his feelings known in this column on Gamasutra. It makes a good argument to why game movies usually suck, why good games don’t always make good movies, and why movies of games are going to become better.
