A gaming site is asking the question of whether Hollywood is about to ruin your favorite video game. There are an incredible 48 game based movies currently in development. We've come not to expect too much from video-game movies but surely there could be a diamond in the rough from the 48 upcoming titles?

A list of all the current game-movies currently in development can be found below.

The problem also lies with gamers. Every time Hollywood releases another game based movie, gamers flock to the theaters to pay $10 for another piece of theatrical garbage (stop salivating over Hitman already guys). If movie studios keep making money from terrible movies because of an installed fan base, then they are going to keep making bad movies

Now, I'm not saying all these movies are destined to be terrible, but surely, SURELY, no-one is going to watch a 'The Sims' movie. What kind of storyline would it have?!
