Sometimes, when a video game is become so popular, they tend to have their own movie titles for fans to enjoy in the large cinema screen. It’s also beneficial to the producers because they know they already captured the large community the game has. But that can also backfire when the producer didn’t research enough about the game.
Take Resident Evil, for example. I was a little bit confused at the first one and eventually enjoyed the second one because they managed to insert a little bit of nods from the games, but the rest of the franchise was crap and didn’t appreciate it for one bit. Assassin’s Creed on the other hand did a fairly good job because of the special effects for its first movie albeit confusing and short.
Even so, there are plenty of video games out there that could really make money if you convert it to a movie title, here’s our list.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The Elder Scrolls saga is on that has a special place for every gamer’s heart and the latest iteration, Skyrim, is no different. The story follows your own customized character who is a dragonborn. Throughout the vast world of Skyrim, you have the option to participate in a series of main and side quest.
Heck, even the side quests could make for an insanely interesting series of movies given you have the perfect director and cast to do the job.
If you’re a 90’s kid, you know that the early titles of Diablo were the best. There’s no denying that Blizzard made way for the future of the online roleplaying universe with this game.
You play by choosing a character class that has their own individual stories and a plot that suits well to be seen in the cinema. With the advancements of CGI today, we would love to see how our heroes bash the skulls of those damn pesky demons.
Bioshock Infinite is somewhere on the list for the game of the year this past five years. Its story follows a floating city of Columbia, having secede from the United States in an alternate early-1900s history, transforming into a dystopian police state. Sounds like a great movie, right?
What’s more interesting is that the main character possess a series of cool powers and gear as he ventures throughout the whole universe of the game.
Blizzard really has a knack of creating cool games that has the future of being a great movie. If you’ve seen starship troopers, this is pretty much it, but a whole lot better. It contains a number of stories that can easily be a popular series in the cinema.
Horizon Zero Dawn
Horizon Zero Dawn is a fairly new game but we can definitely say that it is the complete package of a great game. The game has an interesting story, a badass female protagonist, and a solid mix of sci-fi elements. The story revolves around Aloy, a girl living on Earth hundreds of years in the future. A world where humanity eventually returned to a primitive, tribal state.
With a beautiful cinematic and iconic main character, this one definitely needs to be seen in the large cinema screen.
