We’ve all been disappointed by some of the recent movies that were based on video games. And for the most part, almost all video game movies have been a let down. However, if done right, a lot of video games can make for good movies, with their interesting setting, likable characters, and great stories. So here are the top 50 video games that should be made into movies. This is the first part of a five part series, so be sure to check back later for more.
The Uncharted franchise has gotten better with each new entry, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was easily the best story telling and epic adventure that the series has and so far.
The Last Of Us
An emotional tale of survival across a post apocalyptic American wasteland is already a compelling setting, and with characters as interesting as Joel And Ellie, it only gets better.
Grand Theft Auto IV
Nico Bellic’s tale of rags to slightly better rags is one of best I’ve seen in video games, and deserves to get a movie of its own.
Metal Gear Solid
With the complex political narrative in the Metal Gear games, I can already imagine a very compelling movie being made, if done right.
Intergalactic space adventure, where you get to have sex with hot aliens.The movies just writes itself at this point.
Red Dead Redemption
The American Wild West has had quite a few great movies made about it, and John Marston’s tale in Red Dead Redemption can easily compliment them.
Cyberpunk sci-fi is something that always interests me, and I would love to see the Deus Ex universe brought to life in a good movie. If nothing else, just base it in Golem City, that place seems so fascinating.
Bioshock’s setting and writing have all the signs of a great movie. The underwater city, enigmatic characters, and mind blowing plot twists can all come together really well with the right talent director making the movie.
Dead Space is more than just pure horror, it also has a really interesting story and back story to it, all of which can translate well on screen.
Detective themed noir has been done well before, and LA Noire’s story has a lot to offer to the genre.
