    Mass Effect series revolving around the trilogy. You could even use the model that was used for male Shepard. Would be awesome to get the GoT guys to write it. 2 seasons per game. Maybe 3 for ME3.

    The Lich King. 

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    I'd take a series on The Last of Us, if only because the source material is such high-quality stuff.

    Beyond that...  Bioshock would be a cool source material to draw from.  Heavy emphasis on the retro-tech world, dystopian political dynamic, and gene augmentation features.  The Big Daddy/Little Sister dynamic wouldn't work so well within the series, so I'd avoid that becoming a major plot point in spite of its prominent role in the game.


    Game of Thrones-style Warhammer series would be cool, too.  The whitewalkers would be kind of analogous to the role I see Chaos taking, and the Dothraki would be akin to Greenskins.


    Hell, XCOM 2, with it's alien-human integration/infiltration and resistance storyline would make for a helluva AMC/Sci-Fi series source material.

    Kind of already have that. Have you seen the LOTR movies? I would watch it though ;-)

    From those I'd choose EVE.
    Talking about games where thousands of players exist simultaneously in a single instance and mechanics related to such games.

    I would love an ESO or Mass Effect series or movie franchise, but after what they did to Witcher, I don't think I can handle another bomb.

    I would make games that were games on one end, same as we have ever known, IE tetris/WoW/UO/Lemmings/Bejeweled/minecraft etc that were somehow algorithmically, perhaps AI/CVNN/quantum assistancedly(TM) TIED to/into AND/OR CONNECTED TO AND/OR HAS AN EFFECT ON REAL WORLD DATA that in our real world today is shifted around by some poor sap in a cubicle someplace. 

     In other words lets change the world, allow folks to make livings playing/creating/supporting and having an ownership stake in things they love to do anyway whereby in game actions/characters/outcomes change/manipulate/move/ or otherwise affects real world data, allowing a sale/an advertisement/a transaction/a movement of data to take place that otherwise would have been loathingly done in the past.  

    Think of a young man playing Tetris at home, earning a living playing a game he enjoys in the safety of home, while on the other end, buyers are being matched with sellers, deals being made, transactions settled, accounts updated, calculations simulated.  

    Think of Minecraft, where each voxel block(resources in a mmo) contains a real world monetary/exchange value(via blockchain), can be traded on a real world or in game exchange, and that inherent value is reflected downline in items/creations made with each said resource.  Value and any other statistics could carry on, giving items/properties/playermade widgits true histories, and real world values.  That can be CASHED OUT or traded allowing generation of real world income via in game actions, the decentralization, virtualization and gamification of work.

    I would remake Babylon 5... I'm sure there's a B5 game out there.
    I'd pay WB to remake the effects shots, no need to remake the whole show imo, just give it the same treatment as Star Trek: TOS and NG.

    If I had the money, I'd probably make Wing Commander tv-series but only if I'd get Ronald D. Moore to be the showrunner.

    So someone gives you $250 million dollars to spend on making movies or TV shows, which games do you port over?

    - I'd do 150 million movie, 2 hours long, on Skyrim. 
    - I'd do 10 episodes (1 hour) of a show on Path of Exile - 2.5 mil per episode
    - I'd do 10 episodes (1 hour) of a show on EVE - 2.5 mil per episode
    - I'd do 10 episodes (30 minute) on youtube of Mike Tyson's Punchout - 0.2 million per episode
    - I'd do 10 episodes (1 hour) of a show Neverwinter  - 4.8 mil per episode

    That's my list. Hopefully, i'll be profitable so I can keep doing more other stuff or keep continuing the TV shows. The Skyrim would hope to be a trilogy. Which ones would you like to see the most?

    One of the problems of film and TV treatments for a fan is that you end up thinking they don't live up to the book/game.

    So I would choose stuff I was not that big a fan of, how about a documentary looking at everything from Bless and FO76 to SC and AoC, the loot box sage and this Early Access nonsense? Cheap as chips and gaming docs can do well.

    After changing the world and allowing folks running on treadmills/powering those pelatons to generate electricity rather than using it and retiring...

    I would then simply remake UO, yes that Ultima Online, based on design docs discussed in part here https://www.raphkoster.com/2012/03/15/the-best-articles/ yes UO,in Glorious high res crystal clear 4k, 3D, with modern server tech so as to allow the original vision Raph and crew had back then to finally come to light changing the course of gaming forever, once again, back on the path of simulating living breathing persistent worlds, and away from carrot and stick leveling treadmills or more recently cash cow, cosmetic item cash shop cash grab and clones

    I would do Red dead redemption 2 - movie 20 hrs long...oh, wait - It already exist!
    You just need $550  :P


    Kids these days like to watch glamour BS. "Independent" girls running around on high heels in jungle/medieval/postapocalypse times in perfect white dress or tight pants, like its just from boutique. And ofcourse they smarter and stronger than any men they face. And 90% made in 3d and all action scenes made by stuntmen. So all what those $$$ famous actors need to do is show their faces.

    SIGH

    Its so easy to do movie...thats what they do with games these days - thats why they all suck.

    Look at this (I dont like DS, but if this would be movie/animation it would look cool)

    Somehow they managed to make DS 3 intro worse...   :/

    And D3 cutscenes...mmmm  so awesome.



    P.S.  I would do my own story...
    But most likely nobody would watch it...
  • anemoanemo Member RarePosts: 1,686
    Something with a Zachtronic game.   The story is there in all of their games.

    Something with EVE player stories, maybe.

    Maybe something with The Saga of Ryzom.    Mostly because it's a neat world and you could pull some epic cinematography off with it's concept of an "Overgrown Plant World".

    A drama of some sort with the LoL world could be pretty neat.  

    Practice doesn't make perfect, practice makes permanent.

    If I had that budget and Disney actually let me make it, i would launch a true successor to Star Wars Galaxies set in the period between Episodes 6 and 7. 

    No locked in character classes, space combat at launch, player run economies and cities, huge sandbox planets, multiple Factions, little to no instancing, and a deep crafting system.

    I can't help but think of a game I've seen advertised on Steam called "Shower with your daddy".

    Maybe it would be worth porting over to a movie starring Jerry Sandusky?

    (Such a creative design concept from yet another creative game developer)
  • Jamar870Jamar870 Member UncommonPosts: 340
    Well if no one mention it, I would do a mini-series of "The Wheel of Time".

    a 20 minute documentary on Star Citizen which costs a quarter of a billion dollars. . .and will never release.

    I'd make a long series of Fallout. One movie wouldn't be enough to cover the whole story behind the nuclear holocaust and the life after the opening of vaults.

    I would port over a show based on Secret World.
