RebelTaxi : SpyHunter ft: the Rock was such a guilty pleasure game for me. I find it so strange there's still recent news articles from 2015 talking about it's development hell. I guess after a Rampage movie, anythings possible.

Retro-Spect : Calling "The Rock" "Dwayne Johnson" sounds soooo weird

Nitro Rad : I never knew about Stranglehold 2! I really liked that game back when I was in middle school, would have loved to play a co-op sequel.

Tuli0hWut : Spy hunter did have quite a sum of script rewrites, but it’s not as worse as Super Mario Bros. Now THAT had too many major script revisions. They ended up hiring two directors that had no idea what they were working with. And the movie ended up flopping because of those two.

Bryce McKenzie : Canceled Video Game movies? It's probably for the best

Dad_Shoes : Dwayne Johnson should have played Tim Goodman in Detective Pikachu.

• dot : Wait… it's The Rock and Dwayne Johnson are the same person?!!

Doom2Guy : Surprised you didn't mention Enter the Matrix, which was part of a similar game/movie cross project. Too bad the game sucked

cholesterolGamer : Wait a Kirby mode where you can't inhale enemies? They already had Milky Way Wishes where enemies don't give you any abilities (except certain special ones like Mic and Crash) so there was already a mode with heavy reliance on Copy Essences. How would you even beat bosses in that mode? I mean, yeah, you can grab copy essences to grab an ability, but I mean what if you get hit and you lose it? You wouldn't even be able to suck it back up. Normally you'd have to inhale and spit out whatever projectile they throw at you but with no inhaling, that wouldn't work. Unless they all do the thing that one computer boss does where it'll randomly spawn a copy essence. Huh. Nevermind I guess that could work. Now I wanna see a rom hack with this idea. With Kirby 64 music because Kirby 64 music is freaking cool.

Zombie Hunter : Still waiting for the Midway Cinematic Universe

what's it to ya : can we just have dazz narrate all dykg videos?

Simon Richards : Dazz: The most soothing voice on the internet.

Riffer : What game is at the end when they're showing the top patrons?

Hemang Chauhan : 0:10 Netflix Geralt

Joel Montoya : All of them were basically generic action title with generic action movie ideas. I think it's for the best they didn't pan out cause I'm sure the movies would be as forgotten as these games are by now, and probably not worked out great in the first place. It's not like any of em scream "passion project" as mush as "marketing line."

Slingo Dingo : >not mentioning the nightmare creatures movie cancellation feels bad

Macy Godwin : Actually, regarding the planned Suffering film, they did have an actor set to play Torque - Chiwetel Ejiofor.

F0reman371 : Video game movies don't work Movie video games don''t work Stop. Trying. Hollywood. No, wreck-it-Ralph doesn't count guys.

ᵗʰᵉNight★Star : There is literally no other industry in the entire world that wastes as much money as the Motion Picture Association Of America. When you think about how many bad directors that continue to be handed millions of dollars, to make so many shitty films that bomb, barely making back any of their money, it becomes downright depressing to think about. Think about this. Bad films are EVERYWHERE, EVERY SINGLE YEAR, and only a few ever really rise to be the cream of the crop. Just think about how much of this money that goes into making movies every single year, that could be funneled into paying the national debt or going to cancer charities, it's downright sicking to even think of. The film industry is a HUGE contributing factor to at LEAST 70% of America's financial problems, and keeps the economy from ever functioning as well as it could. It's sad. Just incomprehensibly sad. Think of how much more prosperous and well-off this entire country would be, if film budgets were cut down by at least 60% of what they are, now. It would force the industry to be more creative and practical, and the lack of ridiculous excess would make all movie studios work MUCH harder to win over audiences, and there would be so much hard work and effort be put into films every day. Movies would become passion projects and have to try so much harder to succeed with limited funds devoted to them. You would see films return to having to use practical effects, and hire competent people and strong actors rather than throwing money at stale ideas and hack directors that cater solely to the lowest common denominator. You would get films that people WANT to make, and therefore people would WANT to see. But instead you have an entire industry that is all about burning money just to placate egotistical, hacky, greedy, incompetent fucks pissing every dollar away just to ultimately continue to miss the point, and continually rape the integrity of cinema for high-concept franchise exploiting garbage, and 20 reboots and remakes every month that people only buy a few tickets to now, so they can do youtube vlogs about how much they suck. And yet... there's STILL all this money they just blow, and blow, and blow, and blow, and blow that could be devoted to many many better or more worthwhile things in life. But instead, for as many films come out each year, we throw budgets of $10 Million dollars at each, or whatever, even though only a handful ever even MAKE THAT MUCH BACK. It's very depressing when you think about it.

Erick FTW : Anybody remembers rumors about a movie about The Sims?

Dracomut : Did you know? There are actually good video game movies, there aren't very many since a lot of people who make either don't remain true to the source material or justo make them in an attempt to make a quick buck, but thanks to games becoming more mainstream more good game movies are popping up.

JR Texx : The Suffering was gonna get a movie? Damn I would have loved thst the games was great

Hemang Chauhan : Game/movie tie-ins fascinate me, because sometimes I feel like a movie should have a decent game version or vice versa after experiencing it. Keeps me engaged with the property.

X2011racer : No mention of The Legend of Spyro 3D, huh? But then again, there's little information about the canceled movie anyway; it's pointless to cover that.

KyEz0aR_ : Thats a lot of writers.

TheCreepypro : this is hilarious cause I remember that Spyhunter remake, Wheelman, and Stranglehold and thought it was weird that all three were made like they were tied into movies even though they were not super fascinating to find out all about it after the fact

EnglishChikenLoner : HEEEELLLPP how do i cook a lasagna??????

SummerWave : Keep Dwayne Johnson away from gaming

Mace 2.0 : I've heard about the Spy Hunter film for years. It ain't worth the wait after 15+ years of development hell.

burgnut : Rampage was a video game..?

Kyle S. : 3:08 Is that a pun on yesterday’s big release?

pspdsi22 : eh sorry not interested in this type of content

MaxN'Motion : Did you know? When Midway again lost their director and replaced him with Waluigi from Smash Bros. Then Shrek. Then the narrator for DYKG. Then Mr. Game and Watch. Then President Trump. You see where this is going? Also that Kirby fact sounds terrifying tbh lol

MrPomegranX [Matoi] : My god the amount of video game movies being written at the time. No wonder they were all bad!

FNHot : Im offended they felt the need to explain who Stan Winston is. I mean Im dumb, but come on ...

GSVProductions : Screw these movie tie-ins, I wanna' know more about this scrapped sub-game from Kirby Superstar!

John Sorrows : the problem with video games and movies is a video game is closer to a visual verson of a book they can take 50 hours or more and you try and fit that same story into a maybe 2 hour block buster also videogames are more interactive as you actively doing it in game not just watching the final problem is film studios dont do it justice just looking for a quick buck off of a pre established franchise instead of actually being fans and understanding the lore

Karma Sen : I recommend you guys Watch Critikal's "review" of SPYHUNTER.

lazy bacon : With FIFTEEN years of development hell, are people really clamoring this much for a Spy Hunter movie?

jphpwinner : @5:47 The spelling is right, but Stephen Fung's surname is more like "Foong". (just saying. cos if my surname was Fung, I wouldn't want someone to say it out like "fungus!")

Robin Paine : You'd think after that many botches they'd just call it a day

Stanley Chaney : SHEEEIT Midway, 3DO, Acclaim, and LJN made some bad games! I wonder what games they would've made if didn't go bankrupt?!

Pedro Magalhaes : Paul WS Anderson was brought on board... STOP

sonic_plusmario : i love this

Nicolas D. Madsen : ok no sly cooper still hard to find info on the sly cooper movie

Muhsin Kaymak : Stranglehold was an awesome game

Jack Cade : Where Midway failed Cygames prosper.

AnimeWolfgamer : I would of love to see a spy hunter film with the rock.

Venomex : knew about the spy hunter movie, didn't know about john woo being attached

Joey JoJo : I remember that Spy Hunter game with the rock . It was okay
