Video Games That Should Be Made Into Movies

anthonybecerra831

The Top Ten

1 BioShock

I was thinking right when I clicked on this link, "Hmm, I think Bioshock would be the most awesome 'game to movie. '" Ahh, I wish they would do this! Big Daddies, Little Sisters, Rapture, plasmids... Ugh, would be amazing.

Although BioShock is a great game, I personally don't think that it would work as a movie. The "Would you Kindly" twist would never work on the movies, because this is a twist made for videogames. BioShock Infinite would work better as a movie than the original BioShock.

A game that's so good, it definitely deserves its own film. Although, this is a very easy film to screw up, so don't hope for the best. - Mcgillacuddy

A movie about this game would be awesome! - Olive855

2 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

That would actually be really cool to see the legend of Zelda made into a movie, either a cartoon or actual people, if it would be anything like the games I would definitely go see it. - lukestheman4

Cool idea but one problem link doesn't talk and it could make the movie boring and the one game he talks in the horrible one Zelda cdi it was a disaster same with the cartoon I don't like link talking hope they come up with a good actor.

I want to make 5 animated films based on this and four other Zelda games

I feel it would be better as a cartoon than a movie but a movie would be fine too I guess. - PageEmperor

3 Uncharted

I'm not a big gamer but I think Uncharted would be a great film with many intense adventure and action moments. Plus I adore the main character. He's so great - Irina2932

I would want to watch this movie, and I've never even played an Uncharted game! - LarkwingFlight

They already are making the uncharted movie.

Sony could also make the movie - Sparkjolt

4 Grand Theft Auto

Police chases, epic heists and humour. A Grand Theft Auto film might be the only good game based movie out there

It would be interesting to see Quentin Tarantino or the Coen Brothers take this on

It's already like a movie, good story, nice comedy, clubs... This should at least be top 5

It was, the game is based on a movie from 1977

5 Red Dead Redemption

That movie would be awesome

The movie would be so good... - Ananya

So cool if it was a movie

6 Halo

Peter Jackson was making a movie for Halo but it got cancelled because their funding was cut. I was so sad, it looked amazing. - TheGrammarPolice

YES! You watch. This movie will be made eventually.

I agree. I'm a huge fan of halo and there should be a film

There is

7 Call of Duty

Hell no. This is a bad idea. A really really bad idea. The games suck themselves, what good would a movie do - cdxtreme

There really should be a good movie on this if it doesn't stuck with only with slow-motion scenes or heavy-actions but to stick with the story. - zxm

It's story is like a movie. Its perfect for making a movie.

Call of Duty modern warfare would be the best of these series. Either that or call of duty ghost.

Modern warfare is perfect if you piece it all together. You just have to play the games in order and memorize the characters. We can't exactely do that while where being shot at so a movie would be great. The movie would be perfect if they added some backstory to the characters like as if one of them was in love but a carcrash took her from him. He woke from a coma months later and than joined the army after trying to commit. Every character you play ad should have this. It would be perfect.

8 Metal Gear Solid

I can actually see this working, but they would have to adapt Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake before they consider Metal Gear Solid, since it's the third game in the series.

Well... this is like a movie already!

It would be awesome seeing someone acting as snake, he's the best game character EVER!

As a major fan boy of this series, I would have to whole heartedly agree with this choice. This movie would be amazing if they did it right. The characters and story alone are amazing.

9 Dead Space

Superb game with scary intense line, great graphics. Should be turned into movie franchise - Magnolia

They made a movie like this its called 'The Thing' you know that classic sci fi horror that dead space completely coppied, the only difference is that dead space is in space.

The Thing (1982) was NOT original. It stole many ideas from "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", "Alien" and some other films so get your facts straight! Monsters from Dead Space have nothing to do with the one from The Thing

10 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

YES! But it would be really long

Of course they should.

The Contenders

11 Minecraft

I picture this movie following the story of Minecraft: Story Mode, and following the most chosen decisions. If that's what they do, I will watch that movie! - LarkwingFlight

Shut up, person under the person under my comment.

It already is.

No, I just don’t see it.

12 Pokemon

But Pokemon has had many movies.

What about Pokemon evolution that's red blue and yellow in four episodes

Pokemon has a T.V. series and it has had lots of movies

Yes. Oh, and also 1. the Pokemon ‘movies’ we have right now aren’t for the games, they are just for the show and 2. Those so called ‘movies’ were just garbage in my opinion and it makes me feel embarrased. So yeah, a movie for the Pokemon games would be better. However if it ends up being inaccurate to the games or whatev then nope. If not, then fine. As long as it’s not dark or bad or whatever. - PageEmperor

13 Heavy Rain

Being honest I do not think this would be a good movie. Considering one of the games main elements is how many different endings there are, how would they make it a movie? You can't have 1 movie with 17 endings - Jonerman

A high action and tense drama, it would be fitting for a Hollywood blockbuster and could show what the genre could offer.

I haven't played nor ever will.. But I had to vote because I know this would be a part:

SHAUN!

This game is practically a movie - Ale9991

14 The Saboteur

God of War was already a movie when it was called Clash of the Titans.

15 L.A. Noire
16 Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Oh yeah this would make an interesting movie too as long as it stay true to the characters and nobody gets tortured for no reason then okay. - PageEmperor

It would be interesting to see mario in a movie fighting link or pikachu...

Heroes and villains; just like star wars

Put this in first

17 The Legend of Zelda

Actually, I was thinking for it to be made by Disney or Studio Ghibli.

My Ideas

Name-The Legend Of Zelda

Release Date-July 6 2018

Company-Illumination Entertainment

Distributer-Universal

Cast(Below)

Link-Tom Felton

Zelda-Kate Winslet

Ganondorf-Ian Mckellen

And Much More!

For any Directors who are reading, make this video game into a T.V. show!

These are my ideas:
It will be a T.V. series
each season has different actors playing different people as in each game, they are rebourn
there are six seasons
season 1: Skyward Sword
season 2: Ocarina of Time
season 3: Majora's Mask
season 4: Twilight Princess
season 5: Breath of the Wild
Hyrule is bigger
Some mythical creatures are extinct until a dark force brings them back
Ganondorf is more grusome and Evil
It shows how everything came to be in the first episode so that it leads onto Skyward Sword
It shows the history of Ganondorf and how he keeps coming back to life after each season
It shows easter eggs for the next seasons
the zombies come in large swarms
Link has friends who go on missions with him
It shows Links dark side
There is a lot of action (e.g. sword fights, arrow fights, explosions)
There are even large battles between man and the evil
Hyrule is going through a crisis
A little bit of Romance between Link ...more

18 Fallout 3

this would be a nice movie.. but it would be kinda big I guess... and what about Heavy Rain? that would turn out to be a good movie

The game sucks but it would be cool.

19 Assassin's Creed

The movie is soon to come! Although I am not a fan of the game, I hope it's good.

They are going to make an AC movie - bestgamer

This one should have a movie

They Did And It Sucked - VideoGamefan5

20 Gears Of War
21 Overwatch
22 Mortal Kombat

I agree. Is that so hard to make a decent MK movie? They've already made a very cool web series. Now the 3rd film please! - Magnolia

23 Mafia II

There's already a movie similar to mafia 2. Its called Goodfellas.

24 Bioshock 2
25 Chrono Trigger
26 Bioshock Trilogy
27 Devil May Cry
28 To the Moon
29 Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare

Yeah, this would make a really interesting and funny movie.

30 Deus Ex
31 Saints Row

Saints Row is an awesome game. First of all, it shouldn't be made into a movie. It should be made into a T.V. series! It would have action, comedy, love and tragedy all wrapped up in one. Saints Row 4 is also pretty cool as it jumps from criminalism into an alien simulation! I would definitely watch it. There is one problem though, the director would have to give the boss/president a name cause you don't want people to watch five seasons of Saints Row and think it was bad cause they didn't know the name of the protagonists of four seasons of the show. Overall it would be an awesome show that's would go on for about twenty hour long episode each season. If I saw that a Saints Row show would premier next year, I would scream my head off. 😂

32 God of War

If I am rich film director I would made god of war movie franchise

The bloody goodness would be so awesome as a movie

33 Portal

A game in a incredible fun universe with tons of openings for fun stories to make in to movies separate from Chel's story

J.J. Abrams is actually directing a Portal movie in the future. Google it. - LarkwingFlight

34 Skyrim
35 Super Smash Bros Wii U

AGES 9-12 and above

My Concept

Release Date - November, 23, 2018

Company - Nintendo Pictures

Distributor - Walt Disney Pictures (Don't Kill Me Please)

Cast (Below)

Mario - Definitely Not Bob Hoskins

I don't Know The Others - VideoGamefan5

36 Uncharted Series
37 Metroid

This should totally happen! - LarkwingFlight

Guys, I want this movie out

38 Skylanders: Giants

I prefer Skylanders games... I don't think a movie will be a big hit on fans

39 Grand Theft Auto IV

Apart from the decision moments, this would be amazing - spiderskull98

40 Castlevania
41 Undertale

Never in my life. It would make Undertale even MORE overrated and I would have to wait at least 2 more years to hear the end of Undertale fanbase.

I saw this series of lyrics in Undertale music to make a musical, that could be it.

NO NO NO IF THERE WAS I WOULD HAVE A BAD TIME

Yes! either on the genocide or the pacifist run! they would both be good! (although I would prefer the pacifist) - Antifi

42 Grand Theft Auto 5
43 Grand Theft Auto V

Best game ever needs a movie

44 Shadow of Colossus
45 Supernauts
46 Spec Ops: The Line

With a dark and mature story, with disturbing visuals and atmospheric tension, I can see Spec Ops as one of the best depictions of modern war on the big screen. The game captured it better than Call of Duty and with it's thought provoking native, it would work.

47 Shadow of the Colossus
48 Fallout: New Vegas
49 Mass Effect Trilogy
50 Sonic the Hedgehog

My Ideas For An Animated Sonic Movie:

Release Date - June 9 2017

Company - Dreamworks

Distributor - 20th Century Fox

Cast (Below)

Sonic - Ryan Reynolds

Tails - Random Child Actor

Knuckles - Dwayne The Rock Johnson

Amy - Renee Zellwenger

Eggman - Steve Martin

Shadow - Chris Hemsworth (With A Unique Voice To Sound Like Shadow)

Rouge - Tina Fey

There was a 1999 movie and it's confirmed that there is a sonic movie coming in 2018 by the time that movie comes out sonic will be dead cause of the sonic boom series. - spodermanfan1000

The Sonic series is doomed, because there will be a Sonic movie in 2018, and get this, it's live action. - LarkwingFlight

YEP, THIS SHOULD BE RELEASED WITH STAR WARS ROUGE ONE
