    Default Sega games they should turn into movie's? (Sonic)

    Finally saw the sonic movie after a three month closure. It featured the Sega logo accompanied by images of Lotsa eighties Sega games.

    Which games would you wanna see as movies?

    Outrunners would make a cool fast furious type flick. Shinobi a cool ninja action film and altered beast a fantasy film with lots of ankle kicking!

    Golden axe would be best with lots of fleeing villagers, goblins stealing stuff and a badass final boss. The movie could end with the heroes and villains jumping out of a multiplex screen and bringing their fight into our world.

    And your Sega movie's?

    Altered Beast.

    Greek mythology and animal transformations, that could work.

    I mean, ideally none, but maybe the title and imagery of Outrun could be turned into an existentialist road movie along the lines of Vanishing Point.

    You could probably do a good 80s style buddy cop movie loosely based around the Streets of Rage franchise. Ditto for Yakuza/Ryuu ga Gotoku. Comic Zone might work sure personally well as a Who Framed Roger Rabbit? type of deal.

    And while it isn't really movies, I think that Valkyria Revolution would have made a better anime than a game (though the latter could be addressed with some relatively minor gameplay tweaks and better pacing). On a similar note, Shenmue would probably make a pretty great live action TV series set in 80s Japan.

    Also, Persona games can make good anime series, but I think that I would like to see a Carnival Phantasm style slice of life mixed with a thousand tons of weirdness style series starting all of the various Persona casts.

    I kinda want to see a Wreck it Ralph kinda movie based off of the Sonic & All-Stars racing games, starring Ristar as he tries to learn how to drive, and ends with the post-credit announcement of him not only being playable in a direct sequel to Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and Ristar himself getting a new solo game.

    Not the games themselves, but you could easily set an anime series in the Shining or Phantasy Star universe.

    Persona games already have animes. Persona 4 got two animes. Persona 5 got one. Persona 3 got a series of movies.

    First Valkryia game got an anime. The less said about it the better.

    Mentioning Valkyria...I remember when I saw Valkyria Chronicles in the SEGA logo for the Sonic movie that made me think it would make a great movie, but there's no way you could adapt it's gorgeous aesthetic into live-action, and that's half the appeal of the franchise.
