WHAT??

What happened to Gears? Uncharted? Resistance? Deus Ex? Wolfenstein? Tenchu or Ninja Gaiden? Crysis? Something with parkour like Mirror's Edge?
UMM GOD OF WAR anyone?
There are sooo many games that are better suited than the ones you picked.

WipeOut

I always thought the classic WipeOut futuristic, anti-grav, racing game series would make for a cool movie or movies. There is a lot of freedom with character usage of the drivers, but it would be more about making the vehicles seem to have a life of their own. AND, it would have a killer soundtrack.

2 out of 10 ain't bad ;)

this one is another one that could be phenomenal, and I think Wan is a really solid choice. They'll have to tinker with the story a bit though because truth be told the backstory of the game is a bit retarded.

BAD LIST

We REALLY need:
1. a Peter Jackson THE ELDER SCROLLS
2. a J.J. Abrams HALO
3. a Zack Snyder GEARS OF WAR
4. a Quentin Tarantino RED DEAD REDEMPTION
5. a Ridley Scott KILLZONE
6. a David Fincher HEAVY RAIN
7. a Gore Verbinski BIOSHOCK
8. a Christopher Nolan ASSASSIN'S CREED
9. a Steven Spielberg SPLINTER CELL
10. a Martin Scorsese GRAND THEFT AUTO
11. a James Cameron FALLOUT
12. a Zack Snyder GOD OF WAR

Yeah, I used Snyder twice but only because if he made either of those movies,

Yeah, I used Snyder twice but only because if he made either of those movies, I'd be first in line. He sticks close to the source both in script and on screen

Good list

I definitely like the idea of Edgar Wright doing Brutal Legend. It's something I hadn't thought of previously. I wouldn't mind seeing a dark adaptation of The Legend of Zelda, directed by Guillermo del Toro. Also, I think Brad Bird would do a good job of making a Ratchet & Clank movie.

Yea I agree with Freeden. Wtf was this list? DJ Hero?! Tomb Raider needs to be done right, pretend their was never those last 2 that were awful and I love that series. Where's Zelda, MGS, Shadow of the Colossus, and Mass Effect?

What was this list? N+? Limbo? Tomb Raider (which, as you mentioned, was already done). Most of these games pale in cinematic quality compared to others which deserve adaptations far more due to such a rich story, world, and characters. What about the Deus Ex games? Metal Gear Solid? Splinter Cell? Ace Combat? Pretty much any game by Konami? The list goes on, but I would hardly call this one a top ten list of games which need a film adaptation.

hmph

The only one that I think would have trouble working is DJ Hero. I personally love the game and the idea for that matter but I get the feeling Channing Tatum would play Channing Tatum, someone like BOW WOW would play the token black dude that hollywood feels would have to exist because it's a music movie, and they would probably leave out Daft Punk in favor of someone like Jeff Bridges to play "The DJ to put an end to hip hop/mash up music". You know what, it's probably better if they don't
