It's that time again, folks! (reposting for DG, the other thread has gone odd - hope you don't mind, DG)
----------------------
What is a Photoshop Phriday?

See this link: http://www.somethingawful.com/photoshop/

And for other examples, see here:
http://www.worth1000.com/
The two above websites should give a fair idea of what is involved.
-------------------------
What do I have to do?

So, today's Photoshop Phriday is this: "Bad Ideas For Adventure Games -- Movies!"

Remember Indy Jones and The Fate Of Atlantis?

Remember how brilliant it was?

However, for every Indy Jones you usually get a Hook, or a Blown Away, or an Aliens (the Cyro adventure, not the arcade).

So all you have to do for this Phriday is this -- Choose a movie that we're less likely to see as an adventure game and turn it into an adventure game (Some ideas for this: Steal an image and give it a GUI, combine a scene from the film with any particular adventure game, re-enact a scene from a movie using adventure game images, etc, etc, etc)

The best entries will win a trip to any country they wish*!

Good luck everyone!

* Not a real offer! HA HA HA!!!

I was going to redraw the scene in a Monkey Island style, but... you know... I got lazy.

LGM, the entire GTA series and The Getaway is based on killing people for respect. And anarchy. But it's quite nifty. I'm torn between
Pulp Fiction: The Game! and The Matrix: Welcome to the real world*

Yes Flip.. But if you used your deductive reasoning you would realise that this game was made before Anarchy, GTA's and Getaway. Notice the big AMIGA at the bottom, and it's an adventure game, and the fact that sierra made it.. That would have to place this game back in the late 80's early 90's..

Yeesh  :P

I did see that....but I assumed it was a (fictional) modern day game that you had put together, not released in a whole different era of gaming. :P

Most Movie-games come out around the same time the movie did.. SO think about it.. WHEN did The Godfather come out?

I was thinking about Howard's End: The Game with Lucasarts GUI consisting of two options: walk and look, but I'm too lazy to hunt for stills.

There're enough Brits on these boards that at least SOMEONE has probably seen this movie.  

I present...Lucasfilm Games' Loomed Off!


...and the ever popular Samurai of Monkey Island...

Flippy: Despite whatever accuracy was needed, LGM'S post, like all others here, was a joke -- so I doubt anyone REALLY REALY cares about the exact specifications of the quote because this is supposed to be a bit of harmless fun.

Carry on, people! That's some A-class stuff you're putting here!
