Possibly the dumbest thing I've heard in a long time

I certainly spent my fair share of time at the arcade and in front of the old Atari 2600 as a youth. (I still have the family Atari in my possesion, something which causes great acrimony between me and my sister—or maybe it's just her husband, who's a video-game designer...) But, even with my 1980s video game street cred, I think the following is a horribly dumb idea:

Joust is going to be made into a graphic novel and a movie.

That's right. A video game about knights jousting on the back of flying ostriches over a pit of molten lava is somehow a story. Personally, I'm holding out for the Yars' Revenge movie. (They already created a comic book to accompany the game, so that base is covered.)
