Game-to-Movie Franchises That Scream “WHY?”

When I began writing this piece, I originally went in with a different motif: I was thinking to myself (as we nerdy types often do) what game properties I wanted to see become film franchises. Granted, for every half-decent movie (Resident Evil) we get what amounts to horrible, slow-rotting leprosy (Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li). I had my comprehensive list all typed up, I had my points arranged, and I was ready to fire it off. Somehow, in the midst of my research, I had managed to miss the fact that three out of four of my choices had already been tentatively announced.

Gran Turismo 5 gets delayed in Japan. WHAT A SHOCK!!!!!

While not being as quite a big a joke as the continued delay of Duke Nukem Forever the saga that is Gran Turismo 5 is always entertaining.  After being teased with Gran Turismo HD which was truncated into merely a demo, then having to pay for what many thought of as a demo in the form of GT5: Prologue, and then most recently playing an official demo it looked like Gran Turismo 5 was finally upon us.
