From Game to Film : Silent Hill and Max Payne (English)
Abstract [en]

This study is about what happens when adapting a video game to film. The material consists of Max Payne, Silent Hill and their respective film adaptations. The method used is that of playing through the games, after which the most interesting aspects from the games are compared to those presented in the adaptions. The thesis is based on film theories by David Bordwell, adaptation theories by Robert Stam and the work of Ulf Wilhelmsson who defines what interactivity is with the help of Mark Johnson and George Lakoff. The result of this study show that the adaptations manages to adapt most aspects of the games and removes or change others, as well as, amplifies some aspects that are better portrayed in the medium of film.

Abstract [sv]

Denna studie handlar om min analys av vad som händer när en adaption mellan spel och film inträffar. Materialet i denna studien består av Max Payne, Silent Hill och deras respektive filmadaptioner. Arbetet är baserat på genomspelningar av spelen och de mest intressanta aspekterna från spelen jämförs med de som presenteras i filmerna. Studien är baserad på filmteorier av David Bordwell och adaptionsteorier av Robert Stam. För att studera spelen används teorier av Ulf Wilhelmsson som definierar vad interaktivitet betyder med hjälp av teorier från Mark Johnson och George Lakoff, samt teorin om Spel-Jaget. Resultatet av studien visar att adaptionerna lyckas adaptera de flesta aspekter från spelen, men tar bort eller förändrar andra, och förstärker de aspekter som skildras bättre i filmens medium.
