I watched the first episode and stopped after that. I was not impressed enough to watch any more. I did not think the acting nor the storyline were that good.

Why is everyone mentioning The Witcher? Wasn't that roundly panned because of the terrible decisions of the show-runners?

And of course TLOU was great. The game is basically just a movie.

But yes... good writing and being made by people who love the IP is what makes stuff succeed.

It's a lot easier to be "faithful" to the source material when the source material has massive changes in every iteration. Every vault is different. Most of the games have completely unrelated plot lines, main characters, locations and time frames. That gives creators a ton of leeway to do what they want.

Also means that some video games have story lines worthy of movies and TV series. nothing new here.

Yeah, I still have yet to see a good D&D movie. Even the one with Chris Pine was cringe worthy. Do a series, give it a serious treatment like GoT and people will flock to it like they did with GoT. Keep treating it like bad tween fanfic and it's going to continue to fail.

Leave it to entertainment industries to completely miss the obvious message that is clearly being broadcast by a property's success or failure. Or, what BoP said.

Definitely, it's not as though this is a first good show based on a game series. Yes Fallout show is fantastic but so is The Last of Us from last year. I've heard The Witcher is really good too but haven't watched it yet.

No, it proves that a series that is well written, well acted, and shot well that is faithful to the material will do very well. Lazy cash grabs and "thing in name only" will still continue to fail and be relegated to the dust bin of history.
