Video Games That Should Be Made Into Movies


The Top TenXW


I was thinking right when I clicked on this link, "Hmm, I think Bioshock would be the most awesome 'game to movie. '" Ahh, I wish they would do this! Big Daddies, Little Sisters, Rapture, plasmids... Ugh, would be amazing.

Although BioShock is a great game, I personally don't think that it would work as a movie. The "Would you Kindly" twist would never work on the movies, because this is a twist made for videogames. BioShock Infinite would work better as a movie than the original BioShock.

A game that's so good, it definitely deserves its own film. Although, this is a very easy film to screw up, so don't hope for the best. - Mcgillacuddy

This would be a really good horror movie if you ask me - Jonerman

I'm not a big gamer but I think Uncharted would be a great film with many intense adventure and action moments. Plus I adore the main character. He's so great - Irina2932

I would want to watch this movie! - LarkwingFlight

3Metal Gear Solid

I can actually see this working, but they would have to adapt Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake before they consider Metal Gear Solid, since it's the third game in the series.

It would be awesome seeing someone acting as snake, he's the best game character EVER!

As a major fan boy of this series, I would have to whole heartedly agree with this choice. This movie would be amazing if they did it right. The characters and story alone are amazing.

4The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

That would actually be really cool to see the legend of Zelda made into a movie, either a cartoon or actual people, if it would be anything like the games I would definitely go see it. - lukestheman4

Cool idea but one problem link doesn't talk and it could make the movie boring and the one game he talks in the horrible one Zelda cdi it was a disaster same with the cartoon I don't like link talking hope they come up with a good actor.

I want to make 5 animated films based on this and four other Zelda games

Can't believe it's not already done! - conroy85

5Red Dead Redemption

So cool if it was a movie


Peter Jackson was making a movie for Halo but it got cancelled because their funding was cut. I was so sad, it looked amazing. - TheGrammarPolice

YES! You watch. This movie will be made eventually. - eventer51314

I agree. I'm a huge fan of halo and there should be a film

7Call of Duty

There really should be a good movie on this if it doesn't stuck with only with slow-motion scenes or heavy-actions but to stick with the story. - zxm

Hell no. This is a bad idea. A really really bad idea. The games suck themselves, what good would a movie do - cdxtreme

It's story is like a movie. Its perfect for making a movie.

8Dead Space

Superb game with scary intense line, great graphics. Should be turned into movie franchise - Magnolia

They made a movie like this its called 'The Thing' you know that classic sci fi horror that dead space completely coppied, the only difference is that dead space is in space.

The Thing (1982) was NOT original. It stole many ideas from "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", "Alien" and some other films so get your facts straight! Monsters from Dead Space have nothing to do with the one from The Thing

9The Saboteur

God of War was already a movie when it was called Clash of the Titans.

10Fallout 3

this would be a nice movie.. but it would be kinda big I guess... and what about Heavy Rain? that would turn out to be a good movie

The Newcomers

?Amnesia - The Dark Descent
?The Legend of Zelda Series

The Contenders

11Grand Theft Auto

Police chases, epic heists and humour. A Grand Theft Auto film might be the only good game based movie out there

It would be interesting to see Quentin Tarantino or the Coen Brothers take this on

It's already like a movie, good story, nice comedy, clubs... This should at least be top 5

I don't get why there ain't a single movie like this - zxm

12Devil May Cry
13Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

YES! But it would be really long

14Heavy Rain

Being honest I do not think this would be a good movie. Considering one of the games main elements is how many different endings there are, how would they make it a movie? You can't have 1 movie with 17 endings - Jonerman

A high action and tense drama, it would be fitting for a Hollywood blockbuster and could show what the genre could offer.

I haven't played nor ever will.. But I had to vote because I know this would be a part:


15L.A. Noire
16God of War

If I am rich film director I would made god of war movie franchise

17The Legend of Zelda

Actually, I was thinking for it to be made by Disney or Studio Ghibli.

My Ideas

Name-The Legend Of Zelda

Release Date-July 6 2018

Company-Illumination Entertainment



Link-Tom Felton

Zelda-Kate Winslet

Ganondorf-Ian Mckellen

And Much More!

18Mortal Kombat

I agree. Is that so hard to make a decent MK movie? They've already made a very cool web series. Now the 3rd film please! - Magnolia

19Mafia II

There's already a movie similar to mafia 2. Its called Goodfellas.


I picture this movie following the story of Minecraft: Story Mode, and following the most chosen decisions. If that's what they do, I will watch that movie! - LarkwingFlight

Shut up, person under the person under my comment.

First we get fnaf the movie now you want Minecraft I would die from the cancer and cringe what's next undertale all three games are trash
