I think you could easily do a Last of Us movie. Its a fairly straightforward game with some complex characters but there isn't many game elements that would get in the way of the movie. Lots of games have the levels to pad the length in between the story beats but the Last of Us is definitely all about the story instead of the average gameplay. I would love to see it made into a movie.
