Ever since Valve released its Half-Life first-person shooter back in 1998 there's been speculation of making a movie adaptation out of the video game. Finally, after years of wondering why a Half-Life movie was never announced, Valve co-founder Gabe Newell spoke with PC Gamer magazine and said that Hollywood had approached Valve over the years but there was a reason why the company never sold the movie rights.

"And their stories were just so bad. I mean, brutally, the worst. Not understanding what made the game a good game, or what made the property an interesting thing for people to be a fan of.

“That’s when we started saying ‘Wow, the best thing we could ever do is to just not do this as a movie, or we’d have to make it ourselves.' And I was like, ‘Make it ourselves? Well that’s impossible.’ But the Team Fortress 2 thing, the Meet The Team shorts, is us trying to explore that." [Full story]
