Hi! It's been a long time (well, in net terms! :)) since I last posted here.
I was thinking, what adventure games you've played do you think would make cool movies? Here's a few that come to my mind:
THE LONGEST JOURNEY An obvious one! Not sure who'd be good at playing April, probably the girl who voiced her in the game. I haven't played the sequal, yet.
THE WATCHMAKER The voice acting in it was terrible, but the basic plot was very cool.
MYST/RIVEN I think these would make good fantasy movies.
MOMENT OF SILENCE A genuinly scarey premise--a super computer takes over the world!

Also Still Life i would say would make a good movie. Also the Cyberia series would be interesting to see turned into movies.

I know you've mentioned TLJ, but I thought Dreamfall would make a great movie itself! Action, romance, and of course, a great adventure story with a variety of different characters thumbsup wave

I am going to agree with Becky- The Last express would be great. The characters are just wonderfull. Byzantine would be worth it just for the great scenery.

Sherlock Holmes The Awakened - if only to see all the Holmes purists spit out their biscuits. lol (I'm a Holmesian and I'd love to see this made into a movie!)

A combination of Riddle of the Sphinx and the Omega Stone think at least ROTS.

Was there mention of a possible Nancy Drew movie? Think I would much prefer just the games.
