Many of us remember the old classics such as Golden Axe, Virtual Fighter, and Crazy Taxi. They were fun games for their time, in fact many of us still enjoy playing them occasionally. However, Sega is currently working to develop them into feature films, TV shows and digital series.
Video games have been a notoriously bad choice for movie material, with very few having any notable or even moderate success. One of few successful adaptations was by Paul W.S. Anderson with the Resident Evil series. Other films, such as Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, might be enjoyable as ‘B’ movies, but even ‘A-List’ casting didn’t save them from failing in the box office. Many game based movies such as ‘House of the Dead‘ don’t even rate as enjoyable, by any means.
