Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter.

Many directors have tried to convert video games into movies or TV series, and many more will probably try to do the same. Regardless of whether our ideas hold any merit, it's fun to think of what we would do if we were calling the shots concerning an acting cast and a pile of money.

My ideal is entirely unreasonable and basically ignores the challenge of making a good script, but I wouldn't mind seeing a well-funded, cinematic take on the Bayonetta series. I essentially just want an excuse to watch 90 minutes of over-the-top choreography and spectacular setpieces on the silver screen, and a project that incorporates the ideas of Hideki Kamiya sounds like a safe bet for both.

What would you do, though? Which game would you adapt, who would you put in the director's chair and, most importantly, would it be a musical? Share your games-to-movie adaptation ideas with us in the comments, right after you check this week's Japanese hardware sales after the break!
