Morning Link: Why You’ll Never Be Happy with Video Game Films


Ever wonder why all video game movies are terrible? Well, so did Kotaku’s Leigh Alexander who wrote this rather interesting piece on why gamers will never be fully satisfied with game movies.

She primarily cites the deeply flawed Resident Evil movies as examples, and turns to the recent RE: Degeneration flick as a counterpoint as to the real underlying issue behind our hatred for game movies.

I won’t give it away, you should read the article in its entirety yourself. However, it does bring me to a question, are there any video game movies you would actually classify as “good”?
