I believe someone is making an Expendables video game. I read this just a week or so ago, but can't remember where.

 

My pick: Red Dawn, by Rockstar games. Set in alternate 1980s, featuring the voices of Charlie Sheen, Powers Boothe, and Harry Dean Stanton.

They kinda made that game with last year's Homefront, complete with a Milius script.  It was awful (just like Red Dawn) and completely unenjoyable (completely unlike Red Dawn.)

they also kinda made that game a few years back, they called it "Freedom Fighters"; it was pretty fun (just like Red Dawn), and really enjoyable (just like Red Dawn, again)

I'd LOVE to see a Batman '66 redo of Arkham City. Complete with Dutch angles, sideways wall climbing, GTA-style car chases through Gotham in the Batmobile, wacky weapons like Bat-Bombs, guest stars (Sammy Davis Jr!), "Pow!" and "Splat!" bubbles every time you knock a henchman out - all taking place in broad daylight.

 

 

Flash Gordon.jpg

 

The world NEEDS a Flash Gordon 1980 game. A mix between Assassin's Creed & Arkham City would be the way to go.

A Sci-Fi haunted house shoot em' up. Like Resident Evil.

A game in the mix between Assassin's Creed & Arkham City would be the kitten's mittens. The world NEEDS a Flash Gordon 1980 game.

Apart from the obvious additions, Dead.Space made me think of The Black Hole while I was playing it, especially the bits on the bridge of the ship

Man, this thread is only, like, two degrees away from "Movies that should have been turned into porno parodies."

BT was poor, to be expected from 80s movie quick cash in games, don;t know about the rest.

EDIT: because it was the cash in 80s I was sure there would be a Dark Crystal Game - an there was!

I'd say make it more of a "Silent Hill" in Space, since they already have a Pyramid Head equivalent:

Being chased by that bastard through dimly lit space corridors would soil countless pairs of pants, i tell you.

Play as a lone roman soldier survivor trying to cross hostile territory to safe ground while every single celt/pict in the general area is out for you; make it a semi-open world game were you must  find food, supplies and even acquire new weapons and improvise tactics, and i'll pay full price for this one.

I'd pay double that - top call.

Yup, that thing seriously creeped me out as a kid.

Try to avoid Shack and his hammer as travel across the country as A No. 1, infamous hobo! But Shack isn't the only thing to worry about - Cigarette, a young punk, is trying to take your spot as Emperor of the North! Can you achieve the delicate balance of showing him the ropes and surviving? Make sure to stick around for the Bonus Level where you rack up the points by hitting children with a rooster.

AS mentioned above, Starship Troopers games have been made, but I'd really like to see a great one. If they hadn't watered-down things with the sequels, I think we may have seen more games. Maybe next gen someone will have another go at it. God knows the processing power to have the required onscreen bugs will be there at that point.

One of my favorite under-the-radar games from last gen. Still my favorite squad commanding system too, although I haven't played it in a while so it may not hold up great. I/O really should have made a sequel to this instead of those Kane and Lynch games.

Squad based multiplayer shooter; one team is the retired agents, another the corrupt Feds out to stop them from getting the intel/VIPS they need, with weapons and set pieces of insane level; grenades can be knocked back at enemies, and rcokets can be detonated  by gunfire, final mission is getting to kill the President and  Richard Dreyfuss.

Dibs on Helen Mirren and her sniper rifle.

 If there was a Flash Gordon video game, I would never leave the house. I do remember there was a Flash Gordon pinball game. Yeah I know apples and oranges.

Still, it's been kind of a geek dream of mine to eventually own one of those pinnies someday...

I would have got behind the development of a video game for The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

Inglorious Basterds.  

post #77 of 91

Always wished Lucasarts had done a Star Wars graphic adventure back in the day. Knights Of The Old Republic ended up doing a decent job of scratching that itch, but still would've loved to have seen what they could've come up with back in the early to mid 90's pixel art golden age.

Time Bandits would lend itself well to a gaming endeavour

The whole of space and time, chased by the creator and hunted by Evil while trying to get as much coin as possible.

Would woRk as a puzzler, adventure or platformer.

Sub games galore as well.

Post-apocalyptic GTA clone with car combat, brutal hand to hand/edged/bludgeon weapons combat and access to that cybernetic eye for use in sneaking/ambush missions; "Two tribes" must be used as the background music of the last chase/escape mission.

I could see The Dark Crystal having been a point-and-click adventure game ala Myst.

 

I have no idea how -- or even if -- it could be done, but I'd love to see a Memento game where every time you quit and save, you have to find your save in-game by deciphering randomly generated clues you left for yourself.

 

And a Real Steel fighting game seems like a no-brainer.

The Shining would make a great spiritual follow up to Eternal Darkness. Ghost training your sanity meter. Running through the maze.

The only way to make a Memento game interesting is if you could play as anybody BUT Leonard.  Since the player doesn't have the same condition, it would be pointless to play Leonard.  It would be more interesting to play someone who interacted with Leonard, and since Leonard keeps forgetting things, you could manipulate him into doing things...but since he would note everything down, you'd have to be careful or he'd kill you.  That would be a pretty fun game.

Brotherhood of the Wolf.

 

Each load screen (do they still happen?) would be the cross fade of Belucci's tits to mountains.

 

Mystery, adventure, fighter.

Its... much better than the debacle that is the Amiga game. But its basically a text adventure game with some spiffy 8 bit graphics depicting what's happening.

 

The nes Akira game has gotten a fan translation:

I wondered why they never made a Mad Max/Road Warrior game...that would've been awesome.  Think of the potential of characters and levels.  You could have the open expanse of the desert in a 3rd person roaming environment complete with a vehicle, your dog, weapons, having to hunt for food while avoiding being killed by enemy camps.  You'd use your super car to outrun people and could soup it up with weapons, bombs, oil slicks, etc.

 

How about Speed: The video game?  You have to keep the bus over 50 mph while bobbing and weaving in and out of traffic....or it explodes.  The fact that this is highly improbable in the movie, only makes for a very challenging game.  

 

Total Recall...think of it...being chased around earth and then exploring Mars, trying to figure out your true identity while evading Cohagen's men, hiding out all through the planet.  The Hilton, Venusville, the Pyramid mines...

 

 


The first movie that comes to mind is Crank. It'd be like GTA, but the chaos would be a requirement or you'd die. Big Trouble in Little China could also be a blast.

 

Also, a next-gen console game of Speed Racer could be amazing. It'd have the best bits of both the Burnout games and Mario Kart.

 

It's amazing to me that a movie so inspired by anime and video games and all the Matrix games so far have sucked or were seriously flawed.

 

Sky High could be fun. You create a character and have to 'pass" super-hero classes and defeat bullies with powers as well.

 

District B13. You're in a cramped slum surrounded by violent criminals, but that's okay because you kick ass at Parkour.
