I think Tabula Rasa might make a better series than a movie... think Stargate but with logos abilities and uglier aliens.

1. World of Warcraft -  Already in the making.

2. Eve Online - Its in space so why not. We haven't had a good space flick in ages.

3. Guild Wars - It has a really good story for all of its's campaigns. Infact better than WoW.

4. City of Heroes - It can work, people like super hero movies.

5. Tabula Rasa - It reminded of me War of the Worlds. Still a shame this game does not exist today. All it needed was some love that NCSoft was unwilling to give it because they want Aion instead.

"Honestly, I would hope that if a Warcraft movie were ever made, especially if it were to be set in the Age of Reckoning, that the main character be a Witch Hunter."

Warcraft = Warhammer?

DDO or even the Eberron world would be pretty confusing for a movie.  The two D&D movies were very poor examples of the elements that folks have come to expect in D&D.  PnP Dungeon Masters have been plotting poor to incredible stories for thier sessions for years.  Record of Lodoss Wars is an example of a D&D session taken and translated to anima with success.  It can be done but it would have to have the elements we are about to see in the Hobbit films to win.  Even the D&D animated series from the '80's is a much better success at translating content.  As mention above, Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms and Greyhawk would be much better translations for a film if done with professionials that believe and know what they wish to capture in the story.  I believe one of the D&D films was directed by no less than a non-film pro D&D player.

EVE would be a great movie.  Even just making The Empyrean Age novel as a movie would rock. 

 

Dark, morally complex storytelling with hardly anything in the way of aliens (even the Jovians were human once.)  It'd be awesome.

As an aspiring filmmaker, I personally have looked into MMORPGs as well as other genres of video game to make into movies.  Most are disappointing.  City of Heroes, coincidentally, I had already considered attempting to acquire the option(an option is filmmaking lingo for an exclusive license for a certain number of years to possibly make a movie) for.  The design of it would make a great superhero movie to be honest.  Lord of the Rings Online would be a horrible game to use.  Lord of the Rings has tightly guarded rights(to the point The Hobbit almost got canceled) due to it's connection to the Tolkein Trust, and people would not respond well to one than isn't  based on one of the books because that is what they expect.  DDO could make an excellent film if done by the right person.  That person would have to be to D&D what Peter Jackson was to Lord of the Rings to make it effective.  Also, due to the failures of the first two films, even though I personally liked the first one, in spite of its corny humor and mediocre writing.  If I were to do a DDO based movie, I would more likely wait until DDO Unlimited has set in and call the film Stormreach.  Most movie goers and gamers have a short enough attention span that after a couple years they will forget the original name of the game.  Slipping D&D into the credits to give credit and also making an excellent film should work.  One MMO I was suprised not to see was Everquest.  The back story for EQ is just as rich as both WoW and Final Fantasy.  In the end with Everquest, making it into a film, as with many other MMOs, are making a choice about characters.  Aion, in time may also become a filmworthy MMO.  In the end, Hollywood is a slippery slope to be treaded on carefully.  Every major studio makes around 12-15 films a year(including their subsidiaries), and only about 5 ever become major hits.  A few of the ones that are made are finished by never see the light of day.  A few are dismal failures and most fall somewhere in between.   I think the Warcraft film will only appeal to the masses for the same reason Epic Movie did.............herd mentality(one leads, the rest follow).  On the other hand, Sam Raimi is an excellent producer who has been around since the 70s at least.  I am pretty sure that we will see Sam's brother, Ted Raimi, in Warcraft, since he is in everything his brother produces(plays the nerdy assistant to Jonah Jameson in the Spiderman flicks, Joxer on Xena, and played a small but central role in one episode of Legend of the Seeker during Season 1).  I would also expect to see Bruce Campbell since he tends to show up in alot of Sam Raimi's work as well.

City of... the movie. Yikes.... but... intriging. Hrm. Don't do it from the FP's pov; have a detective type/minor hero work into seeing them in action; perhaps, the one that warns them of the first Rikti invasion? That way, the FP/Regulators/etc. are just larger than life superheroes that bang out the fight in the end (and you have a LOT of killable heroes in the last showdown).

Eve: Better be a darn series. I'm talking BSG/Babylon 5/etc. space opera. Have five year story arcs, etc.

I do hope so.  EQ1 told a great story for those that read all the quests and went to the GM events

Tabula Rasa would be nice.

I sort of agree- the D&D movies put me off of fantasy mmo/rpg movies. WOW,LOTRO,Aion,etc-may the good lord spare me!

I would like to see a well made EVE movie. The universe is very interesting. I like the fact that it was #1 on this list!

Fallout also needs to be made into a movie IMO.

 

cheers.

If you really stop and think about it, MMOs are perfect for episodic television.  Plenty of content to use for each weekly episode.

I really like this list being an eve player for 3 years i would personally love to see an eve movie or even show i mean the players in it have done things that were front page news worthy such as the infiltration and complete robbery of that one corp (cant remember the name) i remember reading about it in the news and the space battles would be excellent i could just imagine seeing a huge space battle and then a titan rolling in and destroying everything it would be epic.

 

also if anyone could provide a link to the eve clear skies i would very much like to check this out

I agree I think Forgotten Realms would make a killer movie or series of movies I mean the stories for Baulders Gate Baulders Gate 2 Icewind Dale were awesome and I loved the NWN 2 storyline and there is alot of debth for that.  Dragonlance would be an awesome one too very good depth there too.  Problems with D&D and D&D 2 is they just took some of the D&D aspects and put them on screen did not even use any of the indepth worlds in D&D.

 

Also Talba Rasa, Eve Online (I think a anime series would be good but a high budget SyFy series like Stargate or Battlestar would be cool), CoX I would see because I love superhero movies overall,  Hellgate : London had a good story basis and storyline and would make a nice movie, Guild Wars WOW they could do mutiple movies maybe 1 for the 3 base campaign settings 1 for EoTN setting and 1 for GW 2 setting (can't see seperate movies in all 3 base campaigns settings but it could be done).  A Matrix Online movie would basically be a sequel to Matrix Revolutions lol.  Now some movies that would be intresting for old school is a AO movie (I liked the AO animated web series they had for a while) also maybe a DAOC one.  I would be fine with a Warhammer movie always wanted one Asheron's Call Movie would be cool.  Hey a UO or Ultima movie (mostly based off old school ultima would be cool). 

 

Just thought of another movie that would be cool even though it is not a MMO would be Might and Magic based off imho the last great M&M games World of Xeen (IV - Clouds of Xeen and V - Darkside of Xeen).

What the hell is this block of text.  Is it punctuated?  Did anyone even bother reading it?  I know I didn't.  Someone needs to slap this kid and teach him some proper english grammar.  This kind of mess should be banned from My Internet.

Original links from the EVE-O forums: link

And do not forget to watch Clear Skies 2 too: link

 

I do not know if I would like an EVe movie but I would certainly like it as a TV series (the anime suggestion sounds fine).

EDIT: For good measure, this Day of Darkness movie from EVE is pretty nice too.

Uhh ok LOTR ruled it was the best Book to Movies ever made in my opinion.

And yes i've read the books...and no movie will ever be like those books.

WoW movie would have to be a cheap badly done Anime/Comic cartoon and you'd have WoW the movie same poor graphics the game has for sure. or Just do a warhammer movie cause WoW is a ripoff of that.

I totally agree a Guildwars movie should be in the Works...Way best MMO

Eve online space moviie pretty much been done over and over.

Tabula rasa  would probably flop like the game or go watch Starship troopers again..

the rest arent that great pretty much marvel movies rehash
