So, would you like to watch a movie about Skyrim? :)

Personally, I would be more than thrilled :eager:

Thats the thing... The majority of VG movies made ussually suck... ALOT.... the idea itself is definitely a good idea, but like I said.

... There cannot be a worse idea than this which does not involve forcefully inserting sharp and abrasive objects into bodily orifices.

Skyrim is all about player choice and freedom to explore. If you take that out, it's just a REALLY REALLY bad linear RPG, because let's face facts here, the skyrim story is kind of sort of totally crap. The movie would just be a guy running in a field punching saber-tooth cats with some CGI-dragons. If you want that, get a decent graphics card and some texture mods...

hahaha. Yeah, many people agreed on that point. Personally I love the all the TES lore, mainly because I was on it since I was 14, but Skyrim's story isn't that catchy as Morrowind's

Movies on video games are never all that good. In video games, things look A LOT cooler than they would if staged in real life. Look at that assassin's creed movie, for example.

yeah that's true. I haven't played Assasin's creed yet, but I saw a movie about prince of Persia. It was so unoriginal

maybe one of the missions as a movie, main story line of the dragon born. Even a story about the Dark Brotherhood could work.

Well that was pretty much a joke, you know Skyrim is an open world RPG... I don't think a movie can do it justice or give the watcher the same pleasure the game does. After playing Skyrim(which I still keep playing since day one) I can't call any other so called RPG a game, I couldn't stand Kingdoms of Amalur an hour for example. No movie can do the same as the game.

Well you can summarize it like that yea. Skyrim is a game that's too tough to convert into a movie. And seeing how they srewed silent hill franchise in hollywood I believe no good game shall turned into a movie ever... maybe just Metal Gear :D

I think, if one carefully, it could be fucking amazing - as long as the Dovahkiin did not partake in a side of the civil war and opted for a peace treaty. But perhaps if they didn't even focus on the Dovahkiin. Yeah dragons could come back and everyone could be running around talking about legends - such as a prequel. The last scene would be, basically, the opening scene in the game.. opening a venue of a second movie but there comes the challenge of picking a Dovahkiin.

Is it male or female? Human or Beast Race? If you go by lore, the Dragonborn has always been a Nord, but the male status quo dragon slayer is a little tired... or a lot tired. Which NPCs do you bring to life? Which companions do they bring? Can they actually ride horses in the movie? Did someone actually steal your sweet roll? Are all of the guilds going to be involved for you to kill Alduin? Personally, even though it doesn't happen in game, I'd love to see a massive Dragon battle. Paarthurnax's homies VS Alduins Homies. CRIPZ N BLOODZ.

It could be a great story of a movie - not everyone plays games but far more people watch movies... and it could be good, but not everything could be fulfilled unless there were 50,000 parts in which case - Peter Jackson that shit.

Bad idea, especially since the core concepts of the game are: individual experience, non-linear storytelling, and having a non-speaking protagonist.

I generally try to. Sorry -- I'd love to see a good videogame film, but I think our best bet is something more applicable, like Persona, Prof. Layton, or Phoenix Wright.

Not a bad idea. But, only. I do not want Skyrim but daggerfall would be perfect. Fairy Tale was part of a series.

I don't doubt that the set or the effects would be good, I just doubt the story would be. The appeal of Skyrim is that it's so open-ended, you can do whatever you want. To take that appeal and chop it up so that it's focused on a single thing for an hour or two movie would be stripping away a lot of what Skyrim is. A show, maybe.

:icongreekstyle:
GreekStyle Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I know. Especially most modern movies are more about effects and it doesn't matter to them if the scenario makes sense. I am not sure if a show would be a good idea either.

It'd be cool to see an Elder Scrolls based film, but I have a feeling they'd probably cheap out and make the protagonsist a male Nord rather than using one of the other races. Maybe they could make something based of a tale from the lore or something.

That is how Bethesda made him look on the trailers, so they would propably prefer that version. Many people suggested that and it's not a bad idea.

Since the Dovahkin is based on however the player wants to make their character, I think if they were going to make a movie about it, they should approach it the way they did Dragon Age or Mass Effect - make an animated movie based on another character. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to watch a movie that concentrated on the Dark Brotherhood or the Thieves Guild <3

Sure, it could be really nice if it is a new story that has nothing to do with the game. I mean by this, like before the game story starts. Or while, but somewhere that haven't been touch by our changements.
