I hope video game adaptations are our version of comic book movies in the 90's it just takes one "raimi's spider-man" or "singer's x-men" it just takes one hit to really get hollywood on board the huge library of potential.
As a big gamer, God I hope not. The stories aren't worth it. The ones that are, are basically rip offs. Bio-Shock is the only one I could possibly see working on its own merits.
