Top 10 Worst Video Game Movies

You know, it's no secret that video games and movies are two completely different beasts. They're both forms of entertainment, sure, but the way they engage their audience and tell stories is as different as night and day. Sometimes, though, some brave (or perhaps misguided?) souls in Hollywood decide to bridge that gap and adapt our beloved video games into big-screen spectacles. The results? Well, let's just say they've been... mixed, to put it diplomatically.

Welcome to this survey of cinematic misadventures, where we explore the strange, bewildering, and often hilarious world of video game movies gone wrong. Whether it's a laughably bad script, miscast actors, or bizarre plot deviations from the source material, these films have taken liberties with their video game origins in ways that left fans shaking their heads in disbelief. But hey, one person's facepalm is another's belly laugh, right?

So, the question is, what are the worst video game movies according to you? We've all got those films that, for one reason or another, just didn't do justice to our favorite digital pastimes. Is it the convoluted plot of a certain sci-fi epic that left you more confused than entertained? Or perhaps it's that action-packed adaptation with questionable special effects and performances that still haunt your nightmares?
The Top Ten
1 Super Mario Bros.

Everybody is talking about Sony & Nintendo working together on a new Mario movie, but this one will be animated rather than live-action. This movie is so horrible. Take a look at all of the other non-video game medias Mario has appeared in.
ANIMATED: Saturday Supercade, Super Mario Bros.: The Great Mission to Save Princess Peach, and anime fairy tale films starring Mario
LIVE ACTION: Super Mario Bros. (1993 Movie)
BOTH: The Super Mario Bros. Super Show
I don't think Mario needs to be in another live action movie. He should just appear in animated only.

This movie is inexplicable. They destroyed the whole essence of Mario universe and put stupid things in place. I think for a movie about games to work, people working in the project should understand about games first.

This movie was probably why they dropped the Crash Bandicoot movie.
Everyone hated the Mario movie. So they didn't release the Crash Bandicoot movie.

2 House of the Dead

More like Zombie Island, Its obvious the people who made this movie never played the game and why is this movie set on an island instead of a giant mansion.

House of the dead? More like House of the crap

Crappy cheap zombie movie.

3 Alone in the Dark

All I have to say about is Uwe Boll. Worst director in history and worst film in his filmography to exist.

Never seen it but the 1% on Rotten Tomatoes explains enough.

This movie was a huge let down for me as a fan of the game.

4 Mortal Kombat: Annihilation

While the first Mortal Kombat was at least watchable, the sequel was just terrible at best. Any redeeming qualities? No, none. Don't bother searching the web for any.

The first film was very entertaining, so how did they mess up so bad?

An extremely awful sequel to an entertaining video game movie.

5 Double Dragon
6 Street Fighter

The plot was terrible and stupid, and Jean Claude van Damm was terrible, I could not understand a word he said. But Raul Julia was great.

That this was ultimately Raul Julia's last film just makes it worse. What a bad way to go out!

Didn't know this existed

7 Bloodrayne
8 Resident Evil

This movie had a lot of potential sadly director Paul Anderson decided to come up with his own version of Resident Evil one with out anyone's favorite characters or anything remotely interesting.

Just play the games instead of these cliche crap.

9 Final Fantasy - The Spirits Within
10 Pokemon The First Movie

Grow up, this movie sucks.

Ah childhood so short, has good and bad.
When you're a kid - "I want to grow up! Being a kid sucks, I hate school, my little (bro/sis) stealing my toys."
When you're an adult- "I wish I was a kid again, life was more easy we had more fun than being stuck in this office and board meetings."

The Contenders
11 D.O.A.: Dead or Alive
12 Hitman
13 Doom
14 Max Payne
15 Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li

How bad is it? It's even worse than the Van Damme film. Yeah, let that sink in...

16 Tekken

This actually exists?

17 Pokemon the Movie Kyurem vs the Sword of Justice
18 Wing Commandor
19 Assassin's Creed
20 Tekken 2: Rise of the Tournament
21 Silent Hill: Revelation
22 Pokemon Black Victini & Reshiram

I wish the whole Pokemon franchise dies soon!

23 The Angry Birds Movie

Horrible game, horrible movie!

Lets face it there was no way a game with not much of a story could do well as a motion picture

24 Resident Evil: Apocalypse
25 The King of Fighters
