Anyone else just watch the cutscenes for most games like a movie and think..."wow, this game would have made a good movie"?

Anything from Blizzard would make an amazing movie. Anything.

I've thought that with the Final Fantasy games before. Then I saw The Spirits Within, and was underwhelmed by the fact that it was just another sci-fi film instead of being a Final Fantasy film. Visually it was a stunning film for its time, I'll admit that. But the soul of the series, what it was supposed to be bringing to the screen, wasn't there. They just tacked the franchise's name on it.

Didn't some editions of the second game come with a bonus disc of all the cutscenes from the first game strung together as a movie? As I recall, I actually liked it better that way.

The movie did borrow some elements from the games. For example, there was talk about people's souls becoming one with the planet, sort of like the Lifestream from "Final Fantasy VII". There was also a machine called Zeus, the FF games have a lot of things named after gods. Yes, I think the fact it wasn't based on the games was part of the reason for the movies failure at the box office. Several years later the FFVII movie "Advent Children" came out and some fans forgave Square. But I'd love to see some big budget live action FF movie in the future. If Hollywood were to do that, they would most likely do "FF VII" first since its perhaps the most famous game in the series. But FFVI" would make for an even better movie. Imagine how crazy Kefka can be if they choose the right actor. And how we see Terra develop her supernatural powers throughout the course of the movie.

Thank. You.

I was convinced the Overwatch trailer was something from Pixar.

Nah. I prefer the interactivity of video games. Plus, most movie adaptations of games are terrible (and vice versa).

If your thoughts at the end of the game are, "This would have been great as a movie," then it probably has failed to deliver as a video game.

Oh yeah! Forgot about that, I have that one too

I actually don't mind long cutscenes, it's like a small break for me... but yeah, if you're rushing for a save point to save your game, then that's a different story

Breakdown has no "cutscenes" to speak of, yet am I the only who thinks it has the potential to be a great video game movie?

Screw Xenosaga lol. If anything, Xenogears should be turned into a movie or an anime! It's a game from 1998, but it's long from being dead. When they put it on the PSN, people rejoiced! It's still one of the top games in the remake rankings.

You won't find a story like that ever again
