Submission + - Why videogame movie adaptations need new respect->

An anonymous reader writes: Hollywood has yet to find any videogame property it is willing to treat with the same respect as J.R.R. Tolkien or J.K.Rowling, arguably still following the principles that led to the appalling Super Mario Bros. movie in 1992: 'A game lacks the complexity that a movie requires'.

This article suggests why and how Hollywood should grow up regarding VG>movie adaptations.
