  1. a Percy Jackson Last Olympian Video game
  2. A Rise of the Planet of the Apes video game
  3. a Thundercats video game

What ones would you want?

#2 Posted by fuzzybunny566 (451 posts) -

are we talking properties that have never had a video game made before?

#3 Posted by scared_of_radio (9 posts) -

There is a problem with this question. I think the majority of those media that lend themselves to be made into a video already have been. Many of those attempts were poor, so when I make my list I know there have already been versions of these in video game format, I just wish someone would do them well.

Book: The Odyssey

Movie: Transformers.

Cartoon: The Ultimates.

1. A Dr. Strange exclusive videogame might be cool, but then I'm a Dr.Strange fan who just wants more good Dr.Strange whatever the format.

2. I'd love to see a videogame based on a Sam Peckinpah movie, I was kinda expecting Red Dead Redemption to have some Wild Bunch/ Bring me the Head of Alfredo Garcia influences but all I can remember in that vein was a Gattling gun sequence and the occasional dark humor. Maybe a straight up adaptation would be cool.

3. A Kingdom Hearts-type game but with Cartoon Network characters and Dragon Quest characters. For me it could just be mostly Hanna Barbera's creations with Gennedy Tartakovsky's characters. Why the fuck not.

1. Neverwhere

2. Bloodsport

3. I don't know... Mighty Max lol

#6 Posted by mosdl (3229 posts) -

For books I'd love another Discworld adventure game

For movie I'd love a gunkata-based Arhkam-style brawler for Equilibrium.

For cartoon, an Archer metroidvania game ala Shadow Complex.

1. A huge adventure game based on Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Alternately? Some kind of adventure game based on Charlie Huston's novels - any of 'em.

2. The Sean Bean Sharpe novels - this could also qualify as number 1, but it wouldn't feel right without Sean Bean's likness.

3. Toxic Crusaders!

  • Book: American Psycho, though preferably starring the more darkly humorous Bateman from the movie rather than the eye-melting, tongue cutting, cannibalistic, necrophiliac monster in the book. Would most work as an Adventure game.
  • Movie: A History of Violence. A brawler, with dialogue trees and stuff. Also it'll make you feel bad when you're pulverising a mobster's nose.
  • Cartoon: Would love to see a Batman Beyond game given the same treatment as the Arkham games.

book...The Phantom Tollbooth

movie...Fight Club (an adventure game with fighting and anarchy missions...not that fighting game mess than came out for no reason a few years ago)

cartoon...Aqua Teen Hunger Force (a real game this time)

#18 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8699 posts) -

Book) The Dragon Prince/Star trilogies - Politics, battles, magic and dragons. Yes please.
 
Movie) The Tournament - The best assassin's world wide duke it out in a unknowing town, hunting each other and each bringing special skills to the table.
 
Cartoon: Legend of Korra - I love this series' setting and Korra is probably my favorite cartoon character ever, she's so bad ass.

Starfist: First to Fight- Book

Starship Troopers (A really fucking good one, not a shitty half-assed piece of crap)- Movie

Gundam- Cartoon

I know there's a SST game and a few Gundam games, but none are worth a damn.

Man, I was totally typing Batman Beyond when I saw you said it first. I love that show.

The Hobbit, The Hobbit, annnnnnnd The Hobbit. But they all have to be awesome games, with different formulas. So one would be like Darksiders but instead of dark gritty zelda, it'd be.... Zelda with the names changed around. And another would be a really good direct control adventure game with some light combat. The other would be a party based RPG. They would each stick tightly to the source material, respectively (so one would follow the movie[s] tightly, another the book, and another still the cartoon {whatever man, it's a cartoon! it counts!}).

But really it'd be more like Serenity, Treasure Planet, and The Hobbit. Serenity would be a very story/atmosphere heavy shooter sort of game with a somewhat light focus on shooting. Treasure Planet would be like linear more refined Assassin's Creed (in that there would be a lot of kind of extra mechanics, and it'd have some good fluid movement and simple combat). The Hobbit would be the adventure game idea from above, keeping faithful to the source material, which in this case would be the book.

Man if the art and writing was right, a Calvin and Hobbes game would be fucking amazing. That'd be an adventure game I'd play so many times.

I was hoping that the new Thundercats reboot would lead to a tie-in game at the very least, but alas it was not to be. Thundercats is fucking perfect as a concept for a video game - we just have to wait until someone of power realizes that.

Ghost in the Shell the manga

Ghost in the Shell the movie

Ghost in the Shell the anime

I just really want to be a bad ass cyberpunk lady who leads a squad of highly skilled cyborg private police personal taking out criminals and solving crimes n shit gosh darn it.

#28 Posted by Soap (3611 posts) -

Book : Ready Player One (it's a book about a video game, but it could be a crazy mash up of WoW, Second Life and every single IP ever)

Film : Inception. (they could probably do some crazy stuff with that.)

Cartoon : Adventure Time! (because it's fucking awesome)

#29 Posted by BigDaddy81 (330 posts) -

Book: The Silmarillion

Movie: Team America

Cartoon: The Pirates of Dark Water.

I would settle for ANYTHING involving the Pirates of Dark Water.

#30 Edited by believer258 (11994 posts) -

Book? Er... I read but I can't think of any single book in particular that I want in video game form.

Movie? I think Jason Bourne could lend himself well to a video game. I know there's been one that actually wasn't too bad, but there could be one that's really good. I guess he could also count for a book character, though I have not read the books so I can't say for sure. I believe the books and movies are supposed to be very different.

Cartoon? Well...

I'm not the biggest Ghost in the Shell, or even any sort of GitS fan at all, but a Stand Alone Complex game? Or a game where you can re-enact the scene in the original movie where she really fucks that one guy up in the puddle? Yeah, that could be awesome if done right. Like Deus Ex, only with a woman and in anime form. I know there was a PSP and a PS2 (edit: and PS1!/edit) game, but I don't remember hearing anything good about them.

#31 Posted by tescovee (361 posts) -

Book - Dark Tower

Movie - Inception (I think it could be a neat concept?)

Cartoon - M.A.S.K.

#32 Edited by Lunar_Aura (2779 posts) -

Fudge-A-Mania, Inception, and the old racist Merrie Melodies

EDIT: fuck

I thought my choices were good. But then I started thinking about a GitS game, and yeah. How cool would it be to have a group of Tachikomas at your command? Or maybe even be able to play, or at least customize them? And Batou? If the storyline was a main quest like a "complex" and the side-missions were "standalone" bits, the Standalone Complex would give you your rough format for how to divvy it up. It could be great if the writing was up to that level of quality...

PS. Plus what said above. I think we're onto something here!

#34 Posted by flasaltine (1682 posts) -

The Odyssey would make a great adventure game.

#35 Posted by gaminghooligan (1465 posts) -

A Venture Bros game would be my cartoon choice, one that is made in the same fashion they're making the new South Park game, one that is a representation of what makes VB so so good.

Movie would be Snatch, a fun game centered around a heist with a funny cast of characters, throw in some of the guys from the original movie like Brick Top.

Book would be A Song of Ice and Fire series, I know there have been attempts but none so far have been able to capture the spirit of George RR Martin's world and characters, honestly the best has been the mod for Crusader Kings 2 which really gets the intrigue and backstabbing of the series right.

#36 Posted by GnomeonFire (769 posts) -

@Flacracker: When I see this, my mind instantly goes to Rise of the Argonauts. Which if done much better actually would be pretty awesome, and the Odyssey is a better story too.

#37 Posted by BonOrbitz (2216 posts) -

Book: Frank Miller's Sin City

Movie: Disney's The Black Cauldron (an adventure game with Don Bluth animation)

Cartoon: The Max Fleischer Superman series

#38 Posted by takayamasama (442 posts) -

Book: Dresden Files series

Movie: Inception

Cartoon: Open-galaxy Futurama game.

#39 Posted by TekZero (2674 posts) -

Green Fried Tomatoes.

#40 Posted by Dixego (386 posts) -

Book: uhm.. I don't know, I haven't read many books yet. I'd say The Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy but there's already one of those

Movie: Inception

Cartoon: My Little Pony, I guess. It would turn out not so well though.

#41 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3065 posts) -

Wheel of Time (an RPG or a strategy game, not another FPS)

Inception (because it has potential to be a really intense story game based in that universe)

Centurions (because I will argue that this is the best cartoon series to come out of the 80s until the day I die. THE DAY I DIE!)

#42 Posted by BBAlpert (1526 posts) -

Point and click adventure based on the movie Airplane.

You know that would be amazing/awful.

#43 Edited by boj4ngles (287 posts) -
  1. any Sharpe's Rifles books
  2. Blood Diamond (but not just an Uncharted ripoff, it would need to be a full on African mercenary simulator like Jagged Alliance but more awesome)
  3. Futurama

Edit: O dam there is already a Futurama game, I need to get that!

#44 Posted by MikeGosot (3227 posts) -
Book - Battle Royale. I would want the first parts of the game to be something more like the Social Links of Persona, and then, when the time comes, the comes becomes this super-hardcore-hard-as-fuck survival game. This would lead to interesting scenarios, because players would be attached to the characters. For the Persona 4 fans out there... Would you kill Chie?
 
Movie - Crows Zero. A brawler where you edit your moves a la God Hand, interact with enviroment to attack, create gangs and punch Yakuzas? Yes please.
 
Cartoon - Regular Show. A 2D downloadable game that changes the gameplay based on what the heck is going on.
#45 Posted by NMC2008 (1237 posts) -

Book - Hustler or Nintendo Power

Movie - Hot Fuzz

Cartoon - American Dad

#46 Posted by Fobwashed (2119 posts) -

Altered Carbon. I imagine a Deux Ex style setting with investigation and whatnot.

Last Action Hero. I'd love to play a game starring action hero era Ahnohld

Avatar. Either series. I'm assuming we're saying a good game will be developed.

What?! No way! Gotta look that up. Okay, then I say Don Bluth's Secret of Nimh and if that's not going to work I'm going with @MikeGosot Regular Show. Why does Adventure Time get all the attention?

Edit. I'm getting my movie and cartoon mixed up. Movie: Secret of Nimh or The Dark Crystal. Cartoon: Max Fleischer Superman series. Maybe we'd finally get a good Superman game besides The Death and Return of Superman.

This thread just made me realize that I never read books anymore.

I am not sure how I feel about it.
