A recent survey asking “Which game would you like to see Hollywood make a film of?” has provided some interesting results, with games like Dragon Quest and Metal Gear topping the list.

The ranking ranges from unsurprising to mysterious:

1. Dragon Quest
2. Takeshi no Chosenjo
3. Metal Gear
4. Tetris
5. Spelunker
6. Legend of Zelda
7. MOTHER (Earth Bound)
8. Ace Attorney (Gyakuten Saiban)
9. Portopia Renzoku Satsujin Jiken
10. Grand Theft Auto

Sadly, we do not hear how respondents proposed Tetris be turned into a Hollywood movie.

Other titles making a potent showing included witch probing game DokiDoki Majo Shinpan, the more plausibly adaptable Devil May Cry series, and DS Brain Training, another mysterious choice.

The survey itself was conducted online with some 5,000 participants, with varied backgrounds.

Via GetNews.

Given the results, we have to wonder…

    Oh god no.

    GTA could be a live action movie. So could Metal Gear. Ace Attorney series... God no. I wouldn't mind an animated film, but not live action. Please, no. D:

    They can think Enix and S-E for never marketing it worth a damn, past or present.

    stop ruining the "image" of these legendary titles (be it anime or games)

    everyone one talking about Metal gear but no one is saying anthing about Metal Slug. Metal Slug would work as a Hollywood movie. good action scenes, some comic elements, a guy who doen't dead no mater how many times you kill him and a big final over the top final battle to end the game. MS2 MS3 and MS6 would make good choices. other games that could work is Helo (which was probly part made by hollywood anyways) and Onimusha

    MGS would definitely make for a great Hollywood film, if the director don't fuck it up!!!! Not sure about the others, but Tetris? Why the fuck.....

    well, honestly, if any of you studied films, you will know that hollywood makes crap. they just re-use the same idea over and over again but dress them up differently. but this is where all the monies' at and it would be hard to find investors to finance the making of such movies else where. Oh, and i wouldn't want hollywood touching any of these games, b/c they make crap. i dont want they ruining Tetris. lol

    Dragon Quest would never be made by Hollywood, so the Japanese should make their own Dragon Quest movie. Takashi Miike can direct it.

    I'm glad to see MOTHER 2 up there- though I think MOTHER or MOTHER 3 would make better candidates. A nice, fun film for Earth Bound sounds nice- but I would honestly prefer to see the tale of a boy who's family has been ripped apart, him then fighting the warped army which had done so.

    I'd want them as an anime more than a movie, though.

    A tetris movie could be the best movie ever, if it were simply a complexly symbolic movie where the characters, people, involved represented Tetronimos (maybe even call them by the piece names, like one of them has a hard to pronounce name so everyone just calls him "T"). The whole movie could be hecktic and done to fast paced Tetris music.

    actually, I'd just vote for it because it's probably the least likely game to be made into a movie, and so I wouldn't really be voting for any of them to be ruined by hollywood.

    A Dragon Quest movie could actually be pretty good, if they take sort of a "Lord of the Rings with humor" angle.

    Takeshi no Chosenjo, of all the whacked old crapola games out there, ranked SECOND?

    Grand Theft Auto? meh...there's no point of making this to a film since its plot and themes are already based from movies..it'll be just redundant, a movie that is based from a game that has elements based from another movies....

    concerning MGS, they already did that movie.
    escape from new york and escape from las vegas anyone ?
    also, i can't think of any other actor than kurt russel as a snake-wannabe.

    but please, leave them alone.
    go get a freakin' writer and go write down a new story, you incompetent hollywoodian fags

    Well... maybe an hour and a half of "*click!* *clunk!*" would be a bigger box office hit than some of the movies that've come out recently. I don't think I have to mention names, do I?

    Wonder what people who voted for tetris were thinking at that moment. I can see a movie of Tetris.

    Big Block : Careful guys!
    L block : They're a empty space right here, captain.
    Big Block : Which kind of space?
    L block : a S shaped space.
    Big block : Send S-Block.
    S-block : right ahead sir.
