Today, there are so many movies based on videogames: Doom, Resident Evil, Streetfighter, there was even a Super Mario Brothers movie at one point. Would you pay 10 bucks to see a movie based on Runescape?

They would not make a runescape movie, A game that is only online can not make a story.

You know what, that would be a good idea! We should have have Jagex sign a agreement with Miazaki

i doubt one will be made even if it is, i wont bother to watch even though i play this game sometimes, the graphics make me puke! I mean if the movie is gonna have graphics like the game, who will bother to go yea if they make it more.. realistic ( the movie.. real instead of animated ), i might go for it - after checking the reviews and critics first :P

Ha funny you mention puking, once i played Spyro the dragon for six hours straight, stood up, and puked! It was really gross. Something about the pov and the controller made me dizzy. The graphics are pretty bad on the PS1 spyro, too. I got sick... A bad movie might make me puke, too! :)

I think it's kind of like "I just worked an hour for ten dollars." and then I wonder if my work justifies spending that much on a movie. It might be good, it might suck. Chances are, it's gonna suck!

I agree! Hollywood seems to see everything as either a profit or loss. I've heard that the statistic is usually only 25% of movies make any money! That means that 75% of the time, the studios lose out. I guess if you produce 2 or 3 blockbusters a year, that make 400 million dollars, that makes up for the loss of money spent on 20 million dollar budget movies.

I think there is so much material in Runescape, enough for a Lord of the Rings like trilogy. There are the Fremenik and Vampyre storylines for example which on their own could be made into a complete movie.

Base on the way things are going i think that they are going to make a movie on halo. I think that god of war would be a great game to make a movie of.

Do you mean like a live action GOW, or a CGI? I love that game! I also like Shadow of the Colosssus, which is pretty good.

However nerdy this may sound, I believe that it would actually be a very good watch. After all, the Jagex staff has wrote a lot of fictional history about RuneScape. I can definitely see it become a sort of trilogy. If you look at the Library, you'll see they have some extensive stuff about the game's "history."

LOL, video game movies tend not to do very well. It seems like they usually suck really bad, or (see above) they end up being a giant commercial for the game. Although my favorite video game movie was probably Resident Evil.

I probably would. It would be pretty interesting and have violence in it. I wouldn't if it was constantly woodcutting.

there is so much content in runescape that i highly doubt they could turn it into a movie lol, but if they did i would go and watch it just to see what they put in it!

It would probably be five minutes of dialogue and 78 minutes of CGI special FX!

hmm i would probably wait until it came out on dvd and then rent it. when there were still quests to do, i did enjoy runescape, but after a few months i got so bored with it..and havent been back since actually. i would rent the movie, but not spend the $10 to see it at the theatres.
