    EDIT: Just realized House of the Dead has a crappy film from 2003.

    There is a Tekken movie and a Castlevania series (not sure if that counts)

    But.. from that list, I'd say Contra.

    Also a number of Megaman shows, a number of FF movies, Halo movies and a short, a Streets of Rage movie is coming c. 2016.

    Just focusing on films for the purpose of this poll.

    I didn't realize there was already a Tekken film.

    I was going to say something political here, but decided to withdrawal my comment.

    Disturbing.

    See above. I forgot that they did release a House of the Dead movie back in 2003. Minus seeing the girl who played Lois Lane in Smallville bare chested, it was actually horrible. They could easily do a really good one though if they put the effort into it.

    Castlevania most definitely.

    Also, House of the Dead was the only movie I’ve ever walked out on.

    Would require a ridiculous budget however.

    Came in here to post this. Massive oversight on @Philo-Publius part. Mass Effect has a deep rich lore and characters to base a series of movies off of.

    Nah it never usually works out well lol. There are media representations of a few of these already,
    Final Fantasy has some small film(s) about it, Castlevania has a really good animated show.

    Don't blame you saw it at home. The only reason I finished it cause I was drunk and high and was just laughing at it with this chick I was watching it with at the time. Tomb Raider 2 was the only movie I've ever walked out on.
