Please Make Me! I Am Legend: The Game

i-am-legend-poster-0-1.jpgLast night, I went to a midnight showing for the newest Will Smith movie, I Am Legend. The story, as you may already know, surrounds Robert Neville, the lone survivor of a viral outbreak that turns a large portion of the populace into night-dwelling deadly creatures (essentially zombies). This forces him to spend his nights barricaded in his home, and spend his days searching for supplies and the elusive cure to the virus. To review the film in a word…”awesomeawesomegoseeitrightnow” (plus you can catch the new Dark Knight trailer in non-YouTube form). But as I left the theater, I got to thinking about one thing: man, that would make for an awesome game.

These days, the few zombie-based games out there have more to do with heavy action. Dead Rising, the upcoming Left 4 Dead, and even Resident Evil 4 have their scares, but most of the gameplay revolves around shooting every zombie in your path. I Am Legend could put the “survival” back into “survival horror,” since that is what a good portion of the movie focuses on.

iamlegend1-1.jpgI’d see a game based on the movie (or book) as kind of a “Silent Hill” meets “The Sims” type of gameplay. You could have New York City as an open world for you to explore during the daytime, to gather supplies, hunt deer, and search for more clues to a cure for the virus. When night rolls around though, you’ll need to hightail it back to your home before the monsters come out. This would be one of the few games where a constant time-limit would make sense and actually work with the story. Robert sets his watch each day to alert him to drop what he’s doing and take shelter, because the sun’s about to go down; so time would need to be factored into each outside excursion. If you don’t get back inside in time though, you’ll need to evade the zombies and rely on your guns to slow them down. You could also have your faithful sidekick, Sam, a German Shepherd, at your side to help you out. Get her to flush out some deer for you to shoot or sic her on some zombies on your tail, for example.

They’d have to expand on the story quite a bit to make it more interactive — particularly since the movie doesn’t have much action for the most part — but it could be as simple as throwing some obstacles in Robert’s path and covering some time gaps that the movie skips over. The movie picks up several years after he first begins to live on his own, so the opening level, for example, could show him just beginning to build up his nighttime hideout and settle into his new lifestyle. Or later, he could discover the location of a crucial ingredient he needs for the cure, but it’s inside a darkened building.

iamlegend3-1.jpgThe story would move along by different encounters he has that reveal more about the behavior of the creatures as well as his growing paranoia. His mind could slowly begin to unravel from his constant isolation and have him imagining things that aren’t there. Constantly searching for other survivors could lead him to follow leads that get him nowhere and just put him in more danger. He could also come across old tapes or somesuch that reveal more about just what happened to the city and where the virus came from. This sort of thing could mimic the sheer sense of isolation that the movie presents so well.

It’s been awhile since a game really gave me the creeps, aside from the usual method of having a monster just jump out at you. Consequently, I Am Legend is one of the few movies to creep me out in recent memory as well. Few games these days really capture the psychological issues of a character, and those that try usually don’t manage to pair them up with good gameplay (see Manhunt 2, Kane and Lynch). I just hope someone out there makes a game with similar themes; if not “I Am Legend: The Game,” then at least something that focuses more on heavy survival, without resorting to a string of gunplay sequences.

The movie was garbage. Way to do nothing with the brilliant source material and instead make a mindless action movie, Hollywood. It was better the first two times around.

The biggest problem? Without resorting to a spoiler, they got the “legend” part of “I am Legend” wrong. There are three words in the title, and they totally fudged up the “legend”. That leaves them with “I am”. I suppose it wouldn’t have been good marketing if they called it “I am Mediocre”.

And don’t worry. It will only be a matter of time before we get “I am Legend: The Forgettable Action Game”.

By the by: There is a SecondLife “I am Legend” game. Tries to focus on surviving and finding a cure for the infection. Mostly though, people just overload the Survivor team and beat up on the two Darkseekers.

I saw it yesterday also and it was pretty poor.

SPOLIERS SPILERS SPOLIERS

In the book the infected are more like vampires and he goes around killing them during the day when they are sleeping but then he discovers there are loads of infected who are not killing monsters, they just look like them. This means he has actually been killing other surviving humans and this is where the ‘I Am Legend’ bit comes from. He is a legend amongst the groups of ‘good’ monsters. He is basically their bogyman and that spins the tale completely on its head because he is the bad guy.

For some reason the makers of the film decided to miss all of that out :neutral:

eh.. the movie was garbage.. I’m not spoiling anything, but the story was severely flawed.

Mr. Sadistic

On December 17, 2007 at 2:16 pm

This is one of the rare times when I think the book is better than the movie. They totally screwed up where he is/was the last surviving human. But for some reason they thought it would be happier if they left some other survivors with a cure. Anyway, why make a game based on a movie where you know the main character is going to die?

ThatGuy

On December 17, 2007 at 3:24 pm

There is a “game” if you will for I am Legend that is playable in Second Life and is its premise is similar to the open world survival gameplay.

@Mr. Sadistic: I’d say that the rarity is a movie that’s better than a book.

Lord of the Rings? Book much better than movie.
Chronicles of Narnia? Same.
Pretty much every Stephen King Novel (except maybe the Shining)? Same
The Bourne Identity/Supremacy/Ultimatum? Same

In almost every case, the movie can’t possibly compete with the book, as the medium of the screen forces producers and directors to make changes to fit within their time constraints. Sometimes, as in the Bourne movies, the changes are so jarring as to make those of us who read the books go, “WTF?!?”

Off the top of my head, I can’t remember a movie being better than a book, ever.

somewhat

On December 17, 2007 at 3:56 pm

And a book also relies a lot more on the readers imagination, you know, that thing we all had before these mean videogames stole it from us. Movies are one persons vision (the director), whereas in a book there is more room for interpretation (and yes, I’m aware that it’s the author’s interpretation, but there is still more lattitude than a movie). Plus, everyone I’ve spoken to that has seen the movie was disappointed also. I’ll probably wait for the DVD rental on this one…

Norbit

On December 17, 2007 at 4:02 pm

Ron said: “Off the top of my head, I can’t remember a movie being better than a book, ever.”

Here are some I think are better off the top of my head: BladeRunner, Shawshank Redemption, The Thin Red Line, The Godfather, Jaws, The Exorcist, Dr. Strangelove, The Andromeda Strain.

In general I agree though. It is rare for the film to be better.

Ron Whitaker

On December 17, 2007 at 5:57 pm

Hey Norbit! I actually liked ‘Rita Hayworth and Shawshank redemption’ (the short story the film was based on), just as much as the movie. Thanks for pointing that one out, as I had forgotten it as an example of a Stephen King movie that pretty much exactly followed the book.

The others are pretty good examples of those exceptions to the rule, especially BladeRunner. What a great movie.

Actually (Bryce), in the book they are technically vampires, but they behave more like Romero style zombies. Slow, shambling and dumb.

@Handshakes
did you even read the book? the vampires in the book weren’t slow shambling and dumb. they had increased strength, they ran and could talk.

@mostly everyone

The movie wasn’t bad..but the producer did up the story. This isn’t about “interpretation” because when you think about it this movie has almost NOTHING to do with the book. All they really have in common are the names as well as the search for a cure. They may as well have just called it
“Will Smith Gets the Vampires”

Bsically, when you go see it try not to think of the book at all.
and for those of you who haven’t read the book, go see it. It’s a good movie and worth the $10

Sakipooh

On December 21, 2007 at 1:32 pm

This is one of the biggest disappointments of the year. Read the book and loved it. I’d say the movie was about 10% relevant to the original story. The movie totally missed the point of “I am Legend” where Neville is supposed to be the last mortal human on earth in a new world order of Vampires. He becomes the anomaly, the myth, the Legend. And they kill him for crimes against their race.

About this bull of appreciating the entertainment and art of films. I’d have to say that I love movies more than anyone else on the planet, but this does not mean that I have to like a good story turned to by the Hollywood machine.

Trust me, if the movie had followed the book, the results would have been amazing.

Your game idea reminded me of the gamecube game of Pikmin in a way, where you have to get back to your ship before night falls when monsters come out and eat your pikmin.

hey so that movie was garbage and had a terribly unsatisfying ending. the idea that it should be made into a game is…what’s the least offensive adj here….”silly”.

also, being in robert neville’s situation would suck. i play games to shoot bad guys and blow stuff up, not to run around looking for food and making sure i’m indoors by sunset.

terrible idea.

I think this would work effectively as an MMO — I want the option of being a zombie and trying to track where the living/immune are hiding out and have the the whole rich playground of NYC and surrounding area and have it continue to play out with “survivors” and zombies meeting up with each other and strategizing…obviously assuming that the ending of the film didn’t happen in the reality of the game. It could be fun.

And don’t compare the book to the movie— I mean look at Omega Man, also an adaptation of the same novel. Directors and screenwriters all have to do their “re-imagining” of the work, so why are people surprised when the adaptations are less-than-faithful?

Book Vs Movie

On December 21, 2007 at 2:29 pm

Ok, First off people, a book is going to be ten times better than the movie, your mind is so much more powerful than any CGI movie. So dont EVER EVER put a movie vs a book round of battles into your head. The book will always win. I dont know how many books I read and go and see the movie and i get disappointed. This movie I finnally did differently. I let the movie tell me a new story or a similar story and allow myself to follow it instead of following the book as a guide line. Out of all the Book to movie, movies i have seen, this is by far the best, and it was because I allowed it to be. If you allow yourself to enjoy the movie then you will, but if you go into the movie knowing its going to suck….its going to suck and your not going to get an ounce of enjoyment out of something wonderful.

On December 21, 2007 at 2:52 pm

Being a HUGE fan of the book since I was in Middle School, and I have yet to see the movie – but I never anticipate a movie being as good as the novel it is based on – however I still plan on seeing the movie. A game based on this would be a very cool premise.

Fashir

On December 21, 2007 at 2:55 pm

True, the movie didn’t follow the story, so what? Imagine the movie is entirely unrelated to the book, imagine the book never existed. Now go see the movie, you will enjoy it, the movie was well made with the story they decided to go with. As far as the game, i believe it may become a little bit redundant with the whole midday waiting and evening hiding.

Andrew

On December 21, 2007 at 2:55 pm

Movie was awesome, and if you do not think the movie level up to the book then you do not know entertainment. First off this was Will Smith best acting performance ever… Second the movie capture all aspects of a story. Third there is a difference between a book and a movie they are written by different people..

Read the book all you want, but this movie entails the object of your entire mind to a point you are in the movie. Not once have I seen a movie capture you to such a level.

Norbit

On December 21, 2007 at 3:46 pm

@ Stephany

If you are a huge fan of the book do yourself a favour and don’t think of the film as I Am Legend. Try to get that out of your mind completely. Just think of it as a rip off of 28 Day Later and imagine I Am Legend never existed otherwise you will be sitting there as annoyed/perplexed as I was. I was looking forward to this film so much but I dont think I have ever been so disappointed with a film. Its quite entertaining and well made but what they have done to the story is akin to removing the Skywalker family storyline from the Star Wars films. They have removed the thing that made the story good. If they had made this R rated and kept to the original story it would have been brilliant.

Justin

On December 21, 2007 at 4:31 pm

I could even see the game being more of a MMORPG setup where you are one of “less than 1%” that is immune and you all have to survive. Every day you make allies, get supplies and get ready for the night to come. When you die you die!

I agree. ‘The Omega Man’ was crap however I did enjoy ‘The Last Man On Earth’ which was the first film version of the story and was very faithful to the original story.

This wasn’t a freaking zombie movie. In the book they were vampires, and they were vampires in the movie. They weren’t anything like zombies.

Stephany

On December 22, 2007 at 10:38 am

@ Norbit

I know exactly which movie you are talking about The Last Man on Earth starred Vincent Price. I think people forget about Vincent Price and remember Charleton Heston instead because he saturated the movie screen back then. But how in the world one could ever forget about one of the best actors specializing in the macabre like VP is beyond me. I bought The Last Man on Earth last year in a dollar bin at the local bargain store and it was double feature disc which also included House on Haunted Hill. Vincent Price aside, that film is garbage by today’s standards, but back then it was probably considered pretty good cinema.
Of course, the remake starring Chris Kattan and Famke Janssen was even worse and I cannot believe Geoffrey Rush soiled his resume by starring in such tripe…..Talk about butchering a good book… Shirley Jackson must have rolled over in her grave.

Re: book v movie pseudo “intellectuals”

Think first, or at least think for yourself, chaps. Written word and visual imagery are two different mediums. To say, “the book is better than the movie” or the inverse is to say, Browning is Better than van Gogh, etc.

“But the movie is based on the book – van Gogh never based a painting off o—”

SHUT THE HELL UP I SAY

Look here, critics one and critics all of whom the internet spawns, get it out of your stupid little wannabe elite heads – stop this failed and base fake intellectualism.

“Oh, but literature MUST be better than a movie because one has to be so much smarter to GET the written word.”

Visual art is a COMPANION to the written art – not a competitor. The LOTR movies accentuate the books; plucks one strand of one person’s vision and gives it life. It is not lessor because it is not the same. The LOTR movies were about as high of art as the visual realm can contain. Why compare the two just to try and makes oneself… seem smarter?

Two words: Dan Brown. The visual companion to that book just goes to show how insipid the written version was. NO FAKE SMARTIES, THE MOVIE DID NOT RUIN THE BOOK, THE BOOK WAS UTTER TRASH TO START WITH. The movie just exposed the source material.

That’s not always the case, but it is more often than one might think.

CHALLENGE TO THE MENTALLY CHALLENGED

Take a look at the IMDB or AFI top movies. Then look at the source material. The part that is … “based off of,” or “inspired by”? See it? ARE YOU AMAZED?

Some obviously inferior movies, off the top of my head, just because they were based off books or stories…

YOJIMBO
A CLOCKWORK ORANGE
ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST
DIE HARD
THE BIG SLEEP
MARATHON MAN
DEER HUNTER
THE MALTIESE FALCON

and, by my last count, about 70% or so of the top 100 IMBD movies.

Morons.

Norbit

On December 22, 2007 at 4:57 pm

@ az abyss

If you think the film of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest is better than the book you probably haven’t read it.

How does preferring the book to the film version make someone a ‘pseudo intellectual’? Its personal preference you idiot. I preferred the book version of the story to the film version. The fact they are different mediums of entertainment doesnt mean their entertainment value cant be judged against each other.

BTW I love how you say they shouldn’t be compared to each other and yet you end by giving examples of films which are better than the books thereby making comparisons yourself. Ignorant hypocritical .

az abyss

On December 22, 2007 at 5:44 pm

Yo Norbit: RMPL, meat :mad: . I obviously gave the examples to show that the majority of great movies are based off of written medium. Much like you did several posts up, I illustrated movies that have a pretty clear entertainment edge over the written source. Except instead of believing it is rare, I think it is quite common if we study the source material of many iconic and classic films. I also don’t believe that the two mediums should be compared, but I stuck the fork in the argument by showing that even IF ONE DID, it would be hard to make the case that THE MOVIE IS NEVER AS GOOD AS THE BOOK.

Of course it is personal preference, that’s the whole point. But is the mainly the preference between mediums. If one prefers one medium to the other, it is not really fair to say that the it is ALWAYS SUPERIOR. And you can’t tell me with a straight face that the majority of the people that tout prose over film do so for such a philosophical principle. The majority of these numbwits never heard of Wilkie Collins nor recognize Shirley Jackson as one of the best American Writers of her time. Instead these wish-to-be-smart mental mongoloids hang on to some romanticism that they espouse (they believe) altruistically side by side one their livejournal page with reallyingawful poetry.

In reality I enjoyed ONE FLEW OVER… more as a film because I am a fan of Nicholson’s early work and, though I think Kesey is a whale of a writer and I enjoyed the book immensely, that tips ENJOYMENT FACTOR to the film for me. Is one better than the other? Nah. Both are aces and I would not discredit one to claim the other.

Oh, as for the topic of this article… I likeed the I AM LEGEND movie. I just wish it was titled something else and had “inspired by” as its book credits. As a genre film I thought it was pretty strong. If I for some reason thought I was reading the book instead of watching a movie, I guess I would have been disappointed that it had changed so much since I last read it.

On December 23, 2007 at 2:36 pm

To begin, I agree with those who have said that the movie sucked, it did. It sucked so much that I am sure “The Land before time XXLM: Little Foot gets a bruise” will be better. second, fore shame on all those said the movie was good, I bet a nickel that you were the same people to say Beowulf was good too, I hate you. Third, there were two movies that made good games the first is The Warriors the movie and the game are ill, the second movie to be made into a game was The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But why play video games when there is a world to be explored. You want real survival try camping in the back woods of Maine. and for the record Will Smith doesn’t make bad movies, its the directors that make bad movie.

weclock

On December 23, 2007 at 2:41 pm

1. The main reason why a book is better than the movie, is the details that are in the book that get left out in the film (i.e. Jurassic Park)
2. Yes they are two different mediums but you can still measure them by which one was more satisfying to the viewer/reader
???
4. Profit

I believe that no game based off a movie can be good (and vice-versa). RE4, and Dead Rising are loosely based off movies, but are not exact copies of movies, while games like “Spider-Man” and “X-men” games, in short, suck.

In short, if they made a “I am Legend” game, it would suck.

You all need to get a ing life. People who spend time tearing a movie apart is one thing, but if you tear it apart and publish it on a website? That just shows me that everyone who wrote on this page needs to get a life and stop critisizing movies, because your opinion doesn’t mean if someone else liked it. So just shut your mouths and let people enjoy the ing movie if they want to. I used to complain about movies all of the time (Shawn of The Dead for example is one i never used to shut up about) But i’ve learned that the people you talk to or direct your post to on this site don’t really give a about what you have to say. while i’m here. I enjoyed the movie. I read the book and the first time i read it it instantly became my favorite book. I saw the movie and it is the best movie of ’07 by far. So my entire point is NO ONE GIVES A ABOUT WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY.

I just saw the movie and thought it was really good (but I’m not sure about the ending). The idea of a game based on the movie also occured to me.

In my opinion though, I don’t think they should really base it on the movie too much but it’s the concept that could make one hell of a game!

The setting for one would be brilliant! :eek: and a character based on will smith would also be very cool. :cool: and you should also have a proper driving mode. with that deadly red car!! :eek:

I don’t really like the idea of missions being based on trying to find antiodotes and cures though. I think the game should be more free-roaming and serious thought would have to be put into a storyline and missions. They even have do have anything to do with the movie!

Please don’t crucify another brillant game concept again developers!!!!!!

to be honest, your all idiots,
I Am Legend is a Great Film one of his Best (Will Smith),
its action packed,its totaly unpredictable witch makes it better more intense when things happen, and overall its touching in ways other films just cant get a grip off. simple
I just wish there was a game of I Am Legend on PC good gameplay make it as real as the movie, where it lets you run around do exacly what you want you could sit in someones house if you like all day/night or you can actually try to figure out what to do next “like the movie” get supplies etc etc… and obviously not forgetting a game like that would really need good graphics and sound,honestly whats happening to people these days making games they only make games for PvP,MMOP, there should be a good game like this out more often lets hope aye.. :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :grin: :cool:

:roll: I found that I Am Legend the movie was much more exciting and interesting than the book. Vampires? Bah. These things were WAY creepier than vampires could ever be. Maybe you should have thought harder…would you make a movie THAT DIFFERENT from the book on accident, or would you maybe want to make a somewhat different, much more incredible and dark and creepier and funnier film. I say, I Am Legend was a true film, a good one. And I have wanted to play a video game based on it since I saw it.

I think you are right it would mack a good game because of the good story from the book and movie. More and more game’s thees days have beter storys and in my apinyen the beter the story the beter the game and I am legend would mack a very good game.

Im actually making a game with game maker called “The last man alive”. Every day you have to search through houses trying to find their hideout and at the sametime trying to find the cure. At night you have to go to your house and either you sleep or do something else. I’ll try to post it on addicting games and if it’s not good enough i’ll post it on yoyogames.com

I like the way you think,but not if it would be a Single Player game.
If this was a game,it would have to be multiplayer Split-Screen and Online Multiplayer.

The whole sense I know is that there is only one person left alive,but they added that *Spoiler Sorry* mum and kid in the movie *Spoiler Sorry* so that could still work with Split-Screen and Online Multiplayer.

You could customize your Character like Hair,Eyes,Skin and etc.
This would make a couple of Players be put right in the middle of New York trying to find each other and survive.
This could also be with Split-Screen,you could work as a team to find supplies and ammunition.
You could also send out messages with your Microphone,with your voice being heard through all sorts of radios telling fellow Players/Survivors to meet up.

Just imagine this for a sec, 4 Players have met up and are searching New York for supplies and ammunition.
One of the Players/Survivor yells that there watch is beeping and the sun is going down.

As you make your way back to your Vehicle,one of the Players yells out through his Microphone something like “Oh god!” you find out he is being attacked,the sun is going down and your friend is being attacked.

Will you stay and help?,or get back before dark. You decide. :wink:

So yeah,thought i’d get that off my chest and I hope someone would make this into a game because woah,I would buy it.

Thanks for thinking the same about “I Am Legend” being a game.

Also you should be able to alternate characters between sam, (the un named guy), and Robert. and be able to upgrade your shelter from a meak little armor to what he has in da movie.

On June 22, 2008 at 10:45 pm

and if it iz an online game be able to like get guard dogs like sam or any other breed and be able to go into caverns to capture specimens get ammo supplies build your cars each player has there own shelter ok and send messages to other players to let them know danger is comming and they can find ways to travel all over the world or somtin.

Only one problem with your description, they aren’t essentially zombies, they are more
vampire like. The book even describes them as vampires. The only relation to zombies
that can be made from this movie/book is that the book was the inspiration for dawn
of the dead way back when. Romero just decided to use zombies instead of vampires.

To begin, I agree with those who have said that the movie sucked, it did. It sucked so much that I am sure “The Land before time XXLM: Little Foot gets a bruise” will be better. second, fore shame on all those said the movie was good, I bet a nickel that you were the same people to say Beowulf was good too, I hate you. Third, there were two movies that made good games the first is The Warriors the movie and the game are ill, the second movie to be made into a game was The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But why play video games when there is a world to be explored. You want real survival try camping in the back woods of Maine. and for the record Will Smith doesn’t make bad movies, its the directors that make bad movie.

Haha, I agree man. You know it was supposed to have an alternate ending where the zombies were vampires?

I liked the movie but I cried when Sam the dog died, she got bit by a zombie dog thing, the man took her home, gave her a shot.But she was becoming a zombie dog too, the man said his final good bye.Then the dog started to become a zombie thing. Then he had to kill her so he wont become a zombie too. IT WAS SOOOO SAD!!! I cried my eyes out from the part he was holding the dog to the part he buryed her.

I agree with you. but the only problem with that ia that it really wouldnt be an open adventure game sense theres a time line to the game. what im trying to say i geusse is it wouldnt be like fallout 3 were could explore. plus what would happen you got inside roberts house would the game save or would you be walking around. and there wouldnt be a large selection of wepons since he only uses an m4 throughout the movie plus were would you get ammo if you ran out of ammo
