Video Games That Should Be Made Into Movies


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 need this, or a breathe of the wild film - Tisme_draGON

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.

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

I don't get why there ain't a single movie like this - zxm

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 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.

8 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.

That movie would be awesome.

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 Newcomers

? Virtual on Marz

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 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:


This game is practically a movie - Ale9991

13 The Saboteur

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

14 L.A. Noire
15 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

Release Date-November 2 2018
Company-Illumination Entertainment
Cast(Below)(The Pokemon Speak English When There Trainer Is Not Around)
Neil Patrick Harris-Scott(A Pikachu)
Rihanna-Kate(A Ivysaur)
Robert De Niro-Hugo(A Charizard And The Main Antagonist)
Danny Devito-Sean(A Squirtle)
And Many Other Cast Members

16 Super Smash Bros. Brawl

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

One thing what does this have to do with weeaboos and it would be an interesting story on video game characters teaming up to defeat miis, those unnamed enemies from melee and their leaders master hand and crazy hand

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



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

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.
