The Daily Grind: Would you watch a movie based on your favorite MMO?

    
137
Warcraft

I’m not the biggest World of Warcraft fan. That said, I’m pretty interested to see what Duncan Jones does with the Warcraft movie. This is more due to the fact that Moon is one of my favorite pictures ever and less due to the fact that the Warcraft film is based on MMOs, but whatever, right?

What about you, MOP readers? Would you watch a movie based on your favorite MMO (or favorite genre)?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

serowfrkz Your movie is too low budget. They couldn’t even find a good voice actor for the main character.

BigMikeyOcho You honestly think Marvel comics fans would like a film where two Captain Americas are fighting alongside three Iron Mans in a action sequence based on a Marvel Heroes Online game scenario? ;)

Armsman If they made a movie based off of Marvel Heroes, they could print their own money. :P

melissamcdon The latest Wing Commander games are really hard to top cast list wise. Heck, Price of Freedom had John-Ryhs Davies, Tom Marshall, Malcolm McDowell, Mark Hamill… Heart of the Tiger even had Tim Curry. For most movies, that is a hard-to-top cast list.

Gibbins alexjwillis Sure, but given his recent performances, I don’t *want* him to do it.

YES! I love the lore in RuneScape and think it’d make for a great movie. They also have some pretty great animated videos.

Totally. But I’m the wrong person to ask, because I’ll watch a movie based on anything.
