That's a HORRIBLE adaptation!:

 1 BlackWolfe, Mon, 6th Dec '10 3:25:30 AM from Lost in Austin
Some things just weren't meant to be adapted to other media. Or shouldn't be taken seriously. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to come up with a brief summary of the adaptation suggested by the previous poster, then suggest something for the next poster to adapt.

To start:

Waiting for Godot: The Video Game
But soft! What rock through yonder window breaks? It is a brick! And Juliet is out cold.
In this game, you get to play from a previously unseen perspective: Godot him(her?)self! All you do is press start and... What? How the hell could he not show up? It's a game you idiots, program him in! You can't? Ugh!

4Chan: The novel (based on a true story)

The entire novel consists of everything on /b/. Even the pictures.

Metroid Dread:

Tagline: The long-awaited sequel to Fusion!
 
Das kann doch nicht sein!
It's not a video game now, but a movie. It consists mostly of Samus failing to fight space pirates and has to rescued by Adam, who is still alive for no real reason other that the movie needed a love interest that rescues the damsel in distress (who is Samus, just to rub it further in). One can really notice that it's a video game adapation.

"If only I was in the presequel..."
A new brand of invisible ink could ruin the game forever. Only agents Nought and Cross can put a stop to it!

BlazBlue: Fan Hater Edition
It's still basically BlazBlue, but the scripts have been rewritten entirely so that the characters break the fourth wall every five or so lines to openly mock the player. In-fight dialogue has been replaced with "This game sucks and so do you, " taunts are now all variations of "It's just a shitty Guilty Gear remake, " and joke endings have been deleted entirely and replaced with poorly drawn art of Ragna giving the player the finger.

Team Fortress 3: We Can Sit And Talk This Out Like Adults

edited 6th Dec '10 7:13:16 AM by MsieurLapin

RED and BLU have both grown tired of their perpetual warfare, a ceasefire is called as the members of each team do their best to reach a peaceful conclusion to the eternal fighting. A game in the vein of the Ace Attorney series, each class' weapons are now replaced with speech skills. Notably absent are any and all hats.

It's a shameless rip-off of Katamari Damacy. Starring a dung beetle.

All Games, No Life
The series only lasts one episode because all of the lead actors legitimately kill themselves, and they can't get enough replacement actors willing to put themselves through the same kind of torture.

Call of Duty as a Bollywood film.

Soldiers now wear saris and sing Indian songs, for the first time ever!

Pong: the Movie

It was an ordinary day for Michael Tennes. Until he got caught up in a deadly game of counterespionage when he stumbled on an old arcade cabinet. After accidentally unlocking a hidden file, he realizes that by reading the classified documents printed out on the screen, he's made himself a wanted man. This summer, John Leguizamo will shock you when he falls into the hidden underworld of...

You can't pick any objects up without cleaning them first, you have to press buttons to make facial tics and are timed DDR style, and your dead wife is like your fairy in Zelda.

I'm in your fanfiction, correcting your spelling.

All the animation is very cheap.

The cats are played by terrible actors and theirs norm on it.

The Death of the Author: The Musical!

 17 BlackWolfe, Tue, 7th Dec '10 4:52:55 PM from Lost in Austin
It's an off-broadway musical. Each performance is a completely different play. The script remains the same, but the actors are given vastly different direction. Little Shop of Horrors became an even more cynical, darker play closer to No Exit than its origins.

Speaking of which...

[up][up]I don't think you get the point of this topic.

Anyway, Twilight already happened.

[up]Tre plays the role of Enoby in this tale of Le Parkour, Dumbledore, and mastication.

Guitar Hero style game, but you lose every time you play unless you have the Japanese version. Oh, and your drummer explodes.

Do you jest? That would be an awesome adaptation! And it could be like the world's most convoluted Love Dodecahedron, involving protons and electrons...
