Top Ten Video Games That Should Be an Anime Series


The Top Ten

1 Super Smash Bros

Some of my favorite characters of all time would be epic in this! Such as Steven from MasterCraft, Hulk Hogan, and Call of Duty!

I would definitely watch this! What surprise it would be if it actually happened!

YES. Probably even better than a Nicktoon crossover series. - KalloFox34

Oh my gosh yes. I just realized how wonderful this could be. It could be battle royale tournament anime. Sort of a survival game.

2 The Legend of Zelda

Well excuuuse me users, but it already had a terrible T.V. show. - myusernameisthis

It had a cartoon - ElSherlock

Hell yeah I'm obsessed with the Zelda series it would be awesome

Did you forget what happened last time Link got an animated series?

3 Xenoblade Chronicles

It could work as a mecha anime! You know, like Aldnoah.Zero or whatever! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

If Xenoblade was an anime, Pyra/Mithra would be the center(s) of the fanservice.
( don't get me started if it was a uncensored anime)

4 Earthbound

It could be fun

Yes. Hell yes. I need this. - EspioTheChameleon

5 Fire Emblem

Fates would be a very emotional and epic anime

Although it failed in making an anime adaptation once, maybe it can try again and get another anime series? Maybe design it with a feel to either Berserk or Sword Art Online.

It did have an anime series before. But it was only two episodes long and it got cancelled. I would love to see a new Fire Emblem anime series in the future. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

6 Metroid

Samus Aran herself would be the center of fanservice. (Getting her naked all the time)

I have a feeling if it did get an anime adaptation, ( being T rating) samus would be the center of fanservice.

7 Undertale

Never undertale sucks

*shudder* - Sentimental

I'd be down for a undertale anime - e9090

Honestly, I could almost see the Alphys VS Undyne fanfic (alone) becoming one of this show's joke episodes with some minor tweaks.

That being said, Alphys and Undyne are going to be living out their wildest dreams...why, being in anime, of course! - xandermartin98

8 F-Zero

There was an f zero anime - Gamer4life

Bring back the show

9 Super Mario Bros

There was an anime movie, and a 3-episode anime series, but I still want to see a proper mario anime series - myusernameisthis

Not again

10 Dynasty Warriors

The Newcomers

? Ib
? Arknights

The Contenders

11 Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic book is awesome I am going to beat you up when you are sleeping smash64 sonic x is cool to but sonic boom is better than sonic x it is funny you are a bully sonic boom is better

We have Sonic X - ElSherlock

I just want a new Sonic T.V. show to watch that isn't Boom (because boom is awful) - Smash64

Sonic World Revolution

12 Bayonetta

But it is lol

13 Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

And I'm not the only one that wished this.

Its been confirmed for an anime - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

14 Mortal Kombat

The animated series was terrible - ElSherlock

Enough with the Mortal Kombat series. New Line Cinema did go downhill though with their Mortal Kombat and American Girl feature films. - playstationfan66

15 Chrono Trigger

It's a very beautiful game with a lot of good characters and it has an amazing plot.

16 Bravely Default
17 Trauma Center
18 Kid Icarus

The cutscenes for Lid Icarus Uprising were anime, weren't they?

19 Overwatch

They already showed that they can put genius animation, cinematics, and story to this game. Since competitive play has died down, this could be exactly what the franchise needs! What got it fame in the first place!

There is so much lore, so this would be a GREAT prequel detailing what happened before the game.

20 Five Nights at Freddy's

I like this game, but it would be weird as an anime. Besides, it's not even Japanese or even inspired by anime.

Nope. - myusernameisthis

As a fan, no. - TeamRocket747

I love fnaf but I don't think it would work well as an anime

21 God Eater

This already has an anime series! It's on Crunchyroll if you don't believe me.

22 Azure Striker Gunvolt

No, that one OVA on the Nintendo eShop doesn't count. - PerfectImpulseX

23 Kingdom Hearts

Has a lot of potential of an anime series.

24 Persona 5

Make it an actual anime. not that garbage like Day Breakers but rather an anime that perfectly follows the story of the main game not a spin-off. - YourWaifuSucks

25 Splatoon

Yes! It would make me so happy!

26 Mother
27 Spyro the Dragon

This would make a good anime, though it reminds me more of a cartoon. - RiverClanRocks

28 Cave Story
29 Harvest Moon
30 Star Fox

Fox- Leonardo DiCaprio

Falco- Antonio Cesaro or Scott Hall

Wolf- Will Smith

31 Cyber Troopers Virtual-On Marz (Ps2)

This game would've been better off as an OVA series. - PerfectImpulseX

32 Borderlands
33 Tales of Berseria

This game deserves an anime adaptation! The characters are interesting, the story is gripping, &, as many fans believe, the few filler episodes in Tales of Zestiria the X are nowhere near enough to satisfy our demands! The potential this game has for an anime adaptation is criminally unnoticed! I watched a 50-hour Let's Play of this game JUST for the sake of watching the story unfold! And come on; imagine this in the hands of a studio like Madhouse. - OPZoroark

Those few or so episodes in Tales of Zestiria the X taking place in the Berseria timeline aren't good enough. However, I am predicting Tales of Berseria will get a full anime adaptation soon. - SelfDestruct

34 Mother 3
35 Pac-Man

Yes, please! And hopefully, it's Pac-Man X & has the same animation as Sonic X & the same character designs as Pac-Man World 3 for sure.

36 Godzilla
37 Call of Duty
38 Pokemon Platinum
39 Street Fighter
40 Xenogears

Much like Xenoblade, this game already IS basically an anime series in game form. - xandermartin98

41 Warframe
42 UmJammer Lammy

"MY WAIFU IS IN MY MINNND" - xandermartin98

43 Doki Doki Literature Club! Doki Doki Literature Club!

Nope. - myusernameisthis

44 Advance Wars

Hell, the characters remind me of anime characters

45 Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor
46 The King of Fighters

So much potential with a KOF anime to explain more about the world, especially with the Orochi and NESTS sagas. There WAS an anime miniseries, but not only was it a miniseries, but it was based on a non-canon spin-off! - kfcnyancat

47 Okami
48 Ratchet & Clank
49 Shovel Knight
50 Bully

Perfect plot for an anime
