Are you kidding? There have been plenty of movies based on video games. And none of them were good. :P As for video games based on movies, that MIGHT work out once in a while, but they're usually awful.

Apparently, you have not experienced the glory that is the Super Mario Bros. movie. ;)

A King's Quest Movie!

If you were to find out that a King's Quest movie (or series of movies) was going to be released in theatres, what would you think?

What characters would you REALLY want to see in the film?  What villains?  What plot/storylines?  What locations?  What kind of mood would you want the film to have and would you want it to mirror the feel of, say, a Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings?

If the film could be broken up into parts (sequels to come), how would you want the film's storylines to be broken up?  Exactly like the games themselves, or combine, say, KQ1 and KQ2 for film number one, and KQ3 and KQ4 for film numbertwo, etc etc.?

Let me know what you think!  I'd love to hear your opinions!

A lord of the rings feel would be terrible.  Epic landscape shots with triumphant music while Graham picks up a clover.  You'd need a quirky director like Terry Gilliam (though i doubt he would ever accept such a project) that knows how to work with smaller scales of fantasy.  Also, I just don't think King's Quest would make a good movie.  it has great characters and plot but in context for a game.  When you take that interactive quality out of it, there isn't as much there.  Adventure games have a  very thorough and intricate style that involves a lot more information than can be portrayed on film or even could be deemed unentertaining if just visual.
