It might just be because I'm playing it right now, but I think something like StarFlight would be brilliant for a TV series.

It takes place in a huge universe full of a bunch of different races (from weak to easily able to wipe you off the map), and a rich history of ancients, and then an old empire, and now the current state of affairs. There's tons of little quests to take up episodes while working on a couple seasons-long arc of trying to figure out what's destroying solar system after system whipping out all life. And the twist at the end is probably one of the greatest things I can ever think of happening.

Fun, late 80's fun! I'm such a dork...

ooh, some sort of mutated psyche-out version of Silent Hill as a big epic HBO series with loads of gore.

And Sean Bean in it again (as he was in the movie) but this time he dies. 'cause that's what his characters always do.


If not that, then Manic Miner reimagined as a gritty kitchen sink drama.

And if not that, then a reality game show where contestants play a real-life version of Sid Meiers Civilisation. Played at fast of course, so that we could get to the nuclear weapons bit quickly :whistle:

After the last couple of weeks obsessing over it I have to say The Witcher - although I'm aware there was a short-lived series made years ago, and obviously it was a series of books before it was a series of games. I could see it working on tv now, though: the episodic nature of the short stories coupled with the over-arching plot of Geralt's search for Ciri, the war in the background, the political shenanigans, the lore, the other characters . . .

Skyrim would make a good film. Hero learns dragon powers, dragons and did I mention Dragons?

Skyrim dragons are a bit stupid though. Virtually unstoppable when flying...then they land and give you a good chance to kill them.

7 days to die would make a good series, or though it probably would be too similar to the Walking Dead. The Forrest would also make a great series, survival, cannibals, mutants, secret vaults HBO could do wonders with it.

I think Half-Life would be good. It already feels quite cinematic, and the characters are very good for a computer game.

Big lover of Half-Life, but you know Hollywood will make Gordon Freeman talk. That'd be like Judge Dredd taking his helmet off.

Dead Space could be a potentially great movie.
Mass Effect
Metro 2033
I haven't played it yet, but Horizon Zero Dawn looks like a great game.
