Wellll there is nothing much you can do with a FPS (Unless offcourse you are talking Halo :D )

The problem is games like Doom are only good as games. Once you try to adapt it to movies, it destroyes the whole concept.

It would be like having a MGS movie. The ame is only good as a game. I would cringe at a Hollywood adaptation of it...

i dont really igree with u on that one, catapharact.
FPS's are often games with great stories. one of the most ineresting storylines ive ever seen in games are FPS (but of course Tomb Raider is among them too). (im not too good with the genres, but i count hl and doom as fps..)
i loved Unreal, Half Life, Soldier of Fortune, Doom3, Half Life2, and i think Half Life for instance would be just as good if it was a film or tv series. maybe im crazy but i play those games only for the story, not for the killing, serious sam is better for that.
i loved Unreal, but Unreal Tournament is only for benchmarking in my world. same thing with Half Life, a really good game, but i wouldnt last more then 5mins in CS...

TR Doesn't count as an FPS nomedo. It's action/adventure, like Prince of Persia.

I do agree that some FPS hve very uniqe and distinct story lines but they are only good as the game. Once you trasfer it to a movie, it's just not the same.

That's why I am dreading teh fact that Hideo Kojami (the man behind MGS titles) may sell the game's rights to hollywood.

lol, i know TR isnt FPS...
how could ever a third person game be a first person game :rolleyes:
im not so sure how to rate Unreal/UT though. to me its totally different games. like TR and Nintendogs. ;)

I remember the first Doom game - and its predecessors Wolfenstein and Spear of Destiny. This film has a lot to live up too :D .

i used to play doom all the time when i was at work, we used to have to, to see if we had networked our computers together properly. How on earth is the movie going to work well. It's good as a game but i don't think it'll make it as a film.

The Doom film looks good.

If it ever gets done, it's gonna be a low budget affair. BTW Max Payne 3 is in the works, too; it's being developed by Rockstar, who have bought all rights from Remedy. I doubt it will live up to the previous games with the original creators gone :( (and Rockstar is not really known for good stories or graphics, see GTA).
