It's too early to tell but with serious adaptations of Assassins Creed and World of Warcraft we could be entering a golden age for video game adaptations.
I'm not saying it's a bad thing, what I'm saying is that video games have become a form of story telling that movies will never be able to do justice too. Video game adaptations have generally sucked because ultimately you can't replicate the experience. I mean, The Last of Us is without doubt probably the best video game I have ever seen in terms of story, it's actually one of the best stories in any medium I've seen in the last 10 years, but you couldn't replicate it on film.
