I think it is.
It has a fantastic story line, characters, etc.


Your thoughts?

No, I don't think it's worth a film adaptation.
A video game and a film are very different. And the main thing about the GTA games is that there are many different ways to play them.
What would be the point in watching someone else do it? It's much better when you can do it yourself, especially because you can try lots of different ways of doing it yourself. And then if you get a bit bored, you can go off on a rampage whenever you want.

And how would a film cope with the tedium of things like the Taxi or Paramedic missions?

The GTA 2 8 minute movie did very well in my opinion. icon14.gif

I guess GTA III is capable.

No, I just don't know how they'd make that work, without it becoming another Scarface rip off.

It's well worth a film adaptation, but hopefully, no GTA will ever get one.

Do you seriously want Uwe Boll to ruin a great franchise as this

Maybe Vice City would make a good movie, but then again most game to movie adaptations are total garbage, just pretend its a movie when playing biggrin.gif

Not really because Vice City is basically compiled of a few movies, mostly Scarface, which is almost the same as VC.

Well yea that's why I thought of Vc, its already movie-like, its scarface without a cuban main character pretty much haha, plus tommy is just as cool as tony montana

It'd also be pretty hard to come up with a GTA movie that didn't resemble Scarface just with a different setting. With that in mind I don't think any of the GTA games so far would make for a good movie, or something more than Scarface clone for that matter.

Bit hard, since the game is famous and old, but still could be done like Hitman.

Could use this guy too, as the protagonist:
