World Of WarCraft is not particularly known for its enticing story, but that didn't stop Blizzard from kicking Uwe Boll away when he asked to create yet another videogame movie adaptation based on the popular MMO title.

"We will not sell the movie rights, not to you... especially not to you", was the exact words Paul Sams of Blizzard used as he "laughed Uwe Boll out" of Blizzard's office; at least, according to Boll's own story. Uwe Boll went and revealed the reasoning behind Blizzard's declination: "Because it's such a big online game success, maybe a bad movie would destroy that ongoing income, what the company has with it."

Uwe Boll is the director of several (reads: almost all) bad videogame to movie adaptations through the past few years. The list includes House of the Dead (IMDB score: 2.0), Alone in the Dark (IMDB score: 2.2), BloodRayne (IMDB score: 2.6), BloodRayne II: Deliverance (IMDB score: 2.5), In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale (IMDB score: 3.8), and Postal (IMDB score: 4.3). He has announced plans to produce an adaptation of Far Cry. Boll intends to produce Alone in the Dark II, as well as a third movie based on the BloodRayne franchise.

MMO's are real games. Go play one before you judge one. I thought the same way you did "sauce." Unfortunately i don't just judge a game by its cover, especially one that is so popular. I bought it, conquered it, and glad i was able to enjoy such a MMO as WOW. I think i spent 12 days of my life in it and it was well worth it. Wish i had money to keep playing it. 15 bucks a month is just terrible on my wallet with gas and all the s**t with prices these days.

Its a MMO, MMO's have monthly fee's. If i were to give any monthly fee, at least its going to blizzard. Blizzard makes great games. not just good. GREAT. WOW is a real game. Its unfortunate that your a small pathetic child who doesn't have 15 bucks. i'm sorry go f**k off to some cartoons dumb b***h.

may i say that i am 22 born in 86. And i know my games very well. Stupidity, mm not even close to that. Envious lmfao. Wtf thats like a statement out of nowhere. There's just a great deal of hate towards WOW, and i won't rest until every person who gives such hate to such a great game live in peace until that person admits that the game is great. It just might not be what your looking for in a game.

Yeah, and intelligent people are an even rarer breed. I know enough people to say that WoW is played by all kinds of people. Hell, I even know old ladies with grandkids that play it.Also, WoW isn't the laziest MMO, or done in the sloppiest way. If it was, it wouldn't be such a big f**kin' hit. They just took all the useless s**t nobody needs OR WANTS from an MMO (Ever play Everquest? THAT was slow and boring.), took it out and made a fun, enjoyable game.That other Anon had it right. WoW wouldn't be such a massive success WORLDWIDE if it was a bad game.Wake up, people: You just have a different taste in games.

And to the f**ktard who said "REAL games dont make you pay monthly for them. they let you purchase them, and keep them.".... The 'REAL' games you're referring to aren't 100% online, or played for so long, or need so much patching, tweaking and customer support ALL THE TIME. 'REAL' games don't include GMs or tech support or programming people to improve and tailor their game to customer's needs and wants, by your definition.THINK before you post.
