*The games with good stories general can not compress a 20-40 hour experience into an hour thirty.
True! That's why they should start thinking about making SERIALS based on games and NOT MOVIES. It works well in China, Chinese Paladin (xian jian qi xia zhuan) was an awesome serial and very well received by the audience, they then also made a serial for the 3rd part of the game (they skipped the second one though as the story was rather lame, so now there's just xian jian 1 and 3).
You can't just squeeze all the story depth and character development of the games with a good story in a 2 hour movie.
