movie games that wouldnt suck!!!

For the most part I think we as gamers can agree that movie games suck. The some is usually true in reverse too. Generally movies made  from games suck too. To me a good game is like a long movie that you can interact with. Some of my favorite games that support this idea is Mass Effect, Metal Gear, and Uncharted. Games like those make you feel like you are a part of the experience while at the same time watching a 20 to 40 and up hour movie. It would seem like games and movies would be the perfect marriage, but that isn’t always the case. So I decided to come up with a list of games and movies that would be wonderful together.1. Saw / Heavy Rain

Playing through Heavy Rain for me was like watching Saw. Especially the part where you have to cut your finger off. The control scheme  would be perfect for a saw game. Quantic Dream did a wonderful job of making you feel immersed in every suspenseful second. Saw being a movie about mystery and punishment, would be a perfect marriage to Heavy Rain.

2. Fast and Furious / Midnight Club

Fast and Furious has always been one of my favorite movie series. Its a sham that it doesn’t have big games to go along with it. Midnight Club L.A. was not my favorite in the series but it was still decent. I think it was lacking structure and story. For me if you merge the 2 together  the end product would be a game with a developed story and plot line with the tuner, action and customization that you would expect from both.

Thats my picks, whats yours?

    Games like Uncharted, Mass Effect, & Heavy Rain may play like movies, but I don’t think they would translate properly to film.

    The real charm of Mass Effect & Heavy Rain comes from the player’s involvement. The choices you make and the implications of those choices are the most compelling part. That would be completely lost in a linier movie.

    Uncharted is a fun cinematic game, but without the knowledge that you are actually controlling the action, it’s just another popcorn flick.

    They could be decent movies, but I think they are more as games.
