"People love video games, right? And they love movies too? So how about we make some MOVIES based on VIDEO GAMES?!"
We can only assume this was an elevator pitch that recently occurred in the offices of two major video game brands: Nintendo and Atari.
Nintendo's president Tatsumi Kimishima recently revealed he's intent to get a Nintendo film made within five years (did he forget about 1993's Super Mario Bros), whilst Atari is set to partner with EFO films to turn two of its classic titles - Missile Command (which saw players defend six Californian cities from ballistic missile attacks) and Centipede (an arcade game that revolved around shooting giant bugs) - into feature length films.
On the basis of the above, we've decided to go through a clutch of other games with no real story (so not like Uncharted, Assassin's Creed, Halo) to see whether any studios out there might commission us to come up with a script treatment.
Be honest, you'd watch all these...
