Top Ten Video Game Series That Should Be Turned Into Movies

There are rumours about video games being turned into movies. Here's some that the gaming community might agree with...

The Top Ten

1 Legend of Zelda

I Would Watch Ocarina Of Time, Majora's Mask, and Twilight Princess (3 Best Storylines to Zelda Games)

This one should go without saying...

It should be made by either Disney or Studio Ghibli.

2 Bioshock

Plunge into Rapture once again...

Take a ride in the floating city of Columbia

3 Halo

I'm talking feature-length, not made-for-T.V. like Mr. Spielberg's doing...

4 Metal Gear Solid

It would be the PERFECT way for Sly Stallone to get back into movies...

The dialogue, cutscenes, and characters are ready for the screen already. I say a film of mgs3 would make a killing with the right actors to get the emotions right.

5 The Last of Us

This isn't technically a series, but it is still an AWESOME game.

Fortunately they are making a movie!

6 Overwatch
7 Grand Theft Auto

Shooting everyone with an ak-47 will be the BEST ENDING ever! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

8 Super Smash Bros


9 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon

There's a webseries, but I want to see something longer that tells the whole story. Because it is REALLY good. - Synchronocity

10 Call of Duty

Just to please all the 10-year-olds and trolls in the world...

The Newcomers

? Metroid

The Contenders

11 Mass Effect

The charm of Mass Effect is that you get to choose how the story goes. Turning it into a movie would not do it justice. - RizaLovato

It seems that everyone forgets about mass effect on like every list.

This DOES have a movie. I don't think it's very good one though lol.

12 Uncharted

It would be something like Indiana Jones series - maybe even cooler! Awesome game franchise though - Magnolia

I originally wanted to put Dark Souls on here, but that might bring back memories of insane difficulty...

Gerald butler can play drake

13 Pac-Man

The PAC is back to kill your head and eat off your heroes PAC can't just be evil the PAC is back

Well, he was in pixels and look how that turned out. - Cahtergah

There's a animated series

The pad is back

14 Dead Space

Can't call myself a big gamer but I adore this series - intense, creepy and intriguing! - Irina2932

15 God of War

Oh yea I want a god of war game it will be awesome as hell

16 Assassin's Creed

It would be the GOD of game movies, the countless unsuccessful game movies would be blind by this movies glow of perfection from its story telling and its drama.

They are actually planning on making an Assassins Creed movie. It is set to come out sometime in either 2015 or 2016

Come on guys, this would be an absolutely awesome movie, one bad ass assassin in a movie, I'd watch it

Assassins creed is really a movie.

17 Spyro the Dragon

There's already rumours of another attempt at a movie version floating around the fanbase...

As boring as the legend games were, they would make a good movie

18 The Elder Scrolls
19 Fatal Frame

Seems to be an interesting concept...

20 Kirby
21 Sly Cooper

A movie based on the first game is already on the way - bobbythebrony

22 Pixel Gun
23 Dead Island
24 Metro
25 Minecraft
26 Final Fantasy
27 Kingdom Hearts
28 Sonic the Hedgehog
29 Splatoon

I would like a splatoon movie for real.

30 Crysis
31 Virtua Fighter
32 Left 4 Dead
33 Infamous
34 Super Mario

Another Mario movie I want it better than that stupid first one

It already has a movie and it sucks

Pokemon gotta catch em all

Mario Already Has A Movie

35 StarCraft
36 Need for Speed

It sucks. Gimme a good video game movie for kids ASIDE FROM WRECK IT RALPH.

In this case, they already did that. And it was awesome

37 Manhunt

I volunteer to be the main character - bobbythebrony

If they did it probably be NC-17

38 Red Dead Redemption
39 Tetris

Best thing is; they are making a Tetris movie... *facepalm*

40 Five Nights at Freddy's

To the person who put this: If you seriously want this to be a movie, only make it up to 3 because I don't wanna see 4.

I honestly wonder what the bite of 87 would look like

41 Duke Nukem
42 Portal
43 Bully
44 L.A. Noire
45 The Sims
46 Crash Bandicoot
47 Virtual On: Cyber Troopers
48 League of Legends
BAdd New Item
