I picked Prince of Persia, which is coincidentally the only video game adaptation where I have actually played the game. That might have something to do with it...

That is the very definition of a shit list

I liked both Hitman and Resident Evil but at least Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within was an ambitious project. Right?

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. It was my sexual awakening at age 8, and introduced me to the Lara Croft character whom I'm still a fan of today. And dayum, was Angelina hot or what?

I voted for DOA because it has the highest ratio of hot girls in it.

They should have just made the original Resident Evil just like the game instead of what the hell came out. That scarred the shit outta me back in the day!

In the Name of The King, Postal, and Far Cry are video game movies? Not sure which I would vote for. The original Mortal Kombat was pretty decent, the Tomb Raider movies were also not so bad. I liked Hitman, and I thought Resident Evil Extinction was the best in the series (I liked the whole desert location, and I really liked the dusty crusty look of the zombies). I also enjoyed Max Payne, and that's my two cents of the subject.

Silent Hill is actually a very good movie, I wonder why people always lump it with the rest of the bad video game movies. Mortal Kombat was also pretty good.

Prince of Persia could have been much better.

But it's still an entertaining movie.

I'm inclined to agree, it wasn't that bad, it was just very underwhelming.

I wouldn't have immediately thought it, but when you have them all laid out like that, Silent Hill does kind of come across as one of the better videogame-based movies. House Of The Dead is one of the worst films I've ever seen.

Super Mario Bros. baby

Keep in mind I watched it for the first time when I was five years old and it was one of my favorite films until I was about eight years old. I'm 25 now, but I still watch it every few years out of nostalgia.

I just don't understand how someone can't make a good one.

Like, there are a couple that I enjoy, but none that are actually just good. How is it impossible to make a good one?

No more video game movies!

99.99999% of video games wont make good movies. If you do make a good video game movie, you probably have to get creative with the material and piss off the lovers of the game.

Looking through the list you come to realize how bad video game movies are lol. I picked Mortal Kombat on pure nostalgic reason and to this day I still watch it and enjoy it but its by far from perfect. I recently caught silent hill agian after watching it years ago and it isnt that bad of a film. They nailed alot of things right and alot of things wrong. I still enjoy the street fighter flick for how bad it is. If street fighter the animated movie was on here it blows everyone of these movies

Mortal Kombat

With "Man, these are all sad, suck-ass movies" coming in a close second.

Silent Hill captured the feeling of the game while branching off to make a terrifying horror movie. I'd say Mortal Kombat comes in at number two, but it's mostly a nostalgic greatness that makes it worth noting.

Silent Hill

Silent Hill, clearly, it was so close, it had everything, the story was crap though, but visiually, it was perfect, everything was perfect, except the story ...
Christoph Gens really showed that he knew Silent Hill, too bad Roger Avary showed he didn't know jack shit about it.

Christophe Gans is responsible for the story!

He wrote the original screenplay in French, Avary came in to basically translate it into English and do some dialogue which he can be accountable for I guess. But, it's all on Gans. He knew the game's story, he just didn't care about fucking it up...
