He's wrote the adaptation. Of course he's going to look at things positively. Scum with their PR, all of them...

Of course it would, I wonder how a Portal movie would turn out to be... or a TF2 movie xD

Oh...

Realy though... Some games, I can see being turned into movies. Mostly FPS. RPG's and other open ended ones... not so much.

If they did Half Life from a non-freeman perspective, and if it was done by like, J.J. Abrams, then it would be amazing.

The Max Payne movie has me psyched... it'd be pretty hard to mess that story up. Though I wouldn't be surprised...

Why do they turn every game-movie into a live-action one.... Why not make computer animated movies. They usually turn out well. Right?

You get a good writer and director and Zelda would be excellent.

Yes.

I wouldn't say it's "messed up" but they did insert the heaven vs hell concept to add more and to make it less dry of a story line in comparison to the game which really didn't have that. Still it looks like one of the more promising game to movie adaptions that I've seen so far.

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.
