Top Ten Video Games That Should Be an Anime Series


The Top Ten

1 Super Smash Bros

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

I totally agree ladybug375 after seeing that I actually thought it was the anime trailer

It would be cool if they make a Fate/Zero type of anime or any survival anime for it.

Maybe a crossover series of Pokemon XYZ and Super Smash Bros, prehaps?

2 The Legend of Zelda

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?

If this was an anime series I would cry. - Dawscr

Movies, not series

3 Xenoblade Chronicles

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

4 Earthbound

Yes. Hell yes. I need this. - EspioTheChameleon

5 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.

6 Fire Emblem

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

7 Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

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

Its been confirmed for an anime - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

8 F-Zero

There was an f zero anime - Gamer4life

Bring back the show

9 Dynasty Warriors
10 Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic World Revolution

Well yeah, Sonic X wasn't good at all. But it's still an anime, and the game got its adaptation.

Nevertheless, I do feel that a much better anime should be made in honor of the Sonic the hedgehog franchise. Sonic X was pathetic. - Kiteretsunu

AAND the picture? Sonic 06.

I mean like one better than
Sonic X
Sonic X wasn't that good of an
Anime - aarond09

The Contenders

11 Super Mario Bros

Not again

12 Undertale

I'd be down for a undertale anime - e9090

13 Bayonetta

But it is lol

14 Kid Icarus

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

15 Chrono Trigger
16 Bravely Default
17 Mortal Kombat

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

18 Trauma Center
19 Cave Story
20 God Eater

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

21 Azure Striker Gunvolt

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

22 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

23 Mother
24 Advance Wars

Hell, the characters remind me of anime characters

25 Harvest Moon
26 Kingdom Hearts
27 Splatoon

Yes! It would make me so happy!

28 Cyber Troopers Virtual-On Marz (Ps2)

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

29 Mother 3
30 Spyro the Dragon

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

31 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.

32 Godzilla
33 Call of Duty
34 Five Nights at Freddy's

I want chica to look like a cute girl with let's eat bib. She should wear yellow also. Look up foxy human in dragoart

35 Pokemon Platinum
36 Final Fantasy
37 Borderlands
38 Xenogears

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

39 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

40 UmJammer Lammy

"MY WAIFU IS IN MY MINNND" - xandermartin98

41 Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor
42 God of War
43 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

44 Okami
45 Ratchet & Clank
46 Shovel Knight
47 Bully

Perfect plot for an anime

48 Earthworm Jim
49 Warframe
50 Grand Theft Auto V
