Top 10 Video Games That Are Eerily Reminiscent Of Certain Movies And Television Shows

"Coincidence? I think NOT!" - Bernie, The Incredibles

The Top Ten

1 Resident Evil Gamecube Remake (The Shining)

Believe it or not, the mansion that the game takes place in was actually modeled very directly off of the Overlook hotel from The Shining; personally, I like to imagine that this game is basically that film's setting but post-apocalypse myself - xandermartin98

2 Until Dawn (Friday the 13th)

The "teen-drama horror film" cliche is STRONG with this one - xandermartin98

3 Metroid Fusion (The Thing)

Remember the Thing? Well, these are the X; for the record, the SAMUS-X in this game is also extremely reminiscent of the T-1000 from Terminator 2 (and to a lesser extent, the T-800 back in the first Terminator film) - xandermartin98

4 Undertale (Spirited Away)

Now all UT needs is yet ANOTHER extremely pretentious and pseudo-intellectual guilt-trip moral lesson (that this time just so happens to be) about the consequences of excessive greed and gluttony, then the comparison shall officially be completely valid

"Ambition makes you look pretty CLEVER" - xandermartin98

5 Rayman Origins (Ren & Stimpy)

Go ahead, TELL me it isn't the EXACT same art style but modernized - xandermartin98

6 Psychonauts (Invader Zim)

Aided even further by the evident fact that Raz shares his voice actor with Zim (remember Zim EXPERIMENTING on human brains? Well, Raz prefers to go INSIDE them instead; my kind of guy, let me tell you) - xandermartin98

7 The House Of The Dead: Overkill (Pulp Fiction)

It has basically the "black and white" assassin duo of Pulp Fiction (except that they're cops instead of gangster hitmen, the black one swears a lot more and speaks a LOT louder than in PF, and the white one is no longer a hopeless idiot), PF's grindhouse atmosphere is VERY much still there, it's an incredibly dark satirical comedy just like PF, it's got the classic surf-rock music from PF, etc, etc, etc - xandermartin98

8 Borderlands (Mad Max)

How much do you want to bet that Planet Pandora is literally just Mad Max's setting but in its own incredibly distant space future - xandermartin98

9 Chrono Trigger (Back To The Future)

Probably the only complete character parallels it has are Lucca with Doc Brown, Crono with Marty (role-wise) and King Dalton with Biff Tannen, but still, what an incredibly huge movie tribute this game was indeed - xandermartin98

10 Mortal Kombat (Bloodsport)

Based pretty much COMPLETELY off of the film from top to bottom, making it undeniably a definite shoe-in for this list if nothing else - xandermartin98
