UPDATE: Teaser is out!

Long story short, after success of Witcher games Tomasz Bagiński, Oscar winning polish producer and his studio Platige Image bought licence to make Witcher movie. Now they sold it to Netflix, and Netflix in collaboration with Platige is going to make full Witcher TV series. So what ya think? You'd watch it? You hope it will turn to be great or rather disaster? Important side-note - series will be related rather to books than video games ;)

Geralt is too big IMHO.

Also, there's a lot of good movies based on videogames. To name a few:

Really good:

  • Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney
  • Street Fighter II - The animated movie
  • Final Fantasy - The Spirits Within (It's a good movie, albeit loosely based on elements from the game)

Not that good, but passable

  • Warcraft (I don't understand the hate, It's because it's based on the first game and not on WOW?)
  • Virtua Fighter (TV show)
  • Street Fighter V (TV show)

You forgot Tomb Raider and Prince of Persia.
Metacritic user scores are 8.0 and 7.2 respectively.

In fact Tomb Raider cradle of life is my goto response to video game adaptations being always worse.

Didn't like any of those, sorry. I think they are not TERRIBLE or THE WORSE by any means, but I found them really forgettable.

I do not count animes, as there's shitload of animes that adapted video games, especially VNs, into great movies or TV series ;p

And for me The Spirits Within is very weak movie - it's great technology demo, but nothing more. Plot is all over the place, often contradicts itself, character development is nonexistent and actions are often simply dumb ;p

Warcraft is weak movie story-wise, I hated it, not because what it's based on, but because how poorly written it was ;p

Haven't seen Virtua Fighter or Street Fighter TV shows, so cannot speak about these two ;p

I agree that they're not perfect, but far from the "worse ever" tag to videogame adaptations.

I don't know if it's the nostalgia, but the Virtua Fighter opening is still badass, and gives me goosebumps.

CD Project Red's Witcher 3 trailers were better than this, but we'll see. I hope it will be an ok serie.

One is CG, and one isnt. You can't really compare.

i'm really excited for this series, but i worry i be disapointed cause i idnt particulary liked the books, the time jumps were very anoying and hard to follow for me.Maybe if i didnt read them before going to bed as a way to relax enough to fall asleep.

LOVED the games though, and i think the story is very interresting, full of morality wich i love.
