Today I found myself taking a look at J.J. Abram’s IMDB page and saw that a Portal and Half-Life movies were announced. I had never heard anything about these games becoming movies but that got me thinking, what video games would I like to see become movies? I know that historically, video game movies have been terrible. However, I think that there are people who are up to the challenge of making quality video game movies. Here are my top 4:
- Assassin’s Creed
Assassin’s Creed has been very popular since the first one was released in 2007. At the time, the concept was really cool and the game was really fun. I know these games tend to be a bit repetitive but I think seeing just one standalone Assassin’s Creed movie would be cool. As long as it doesn’t look too corny. I can imagine a ton of action and some great stunts. Would be so much fun to watch.
- League of Legends
There are millions of people around the world that play this game, making it one of the most popular games today. There are several reasons to make this game into a movie of sorts. First off, League has a pretty deep lore, which brings a lot of different opportunities for good movie storylines. Secondly, with the growth of eSports, this could be a way to make even more money and grow the popularity of the game. If a movie came out, almost every player would go out and watch this movie.
- Kingdom Hearts
Like I keep saying, I love crossovers. Which is one reason I love Kingdom Hearts. With Kingdom Hearts 3 currently in production, it shouldn’t be too hard to create a movie using a similar storyline that either precedes of followings Kingdom Hearts 3. That would definitely give me a reason to watch this movie. I would love to see Sora, Goofy, and Donald exploring lands and teaming up with other classic Disney characters as a feature length film.
- The Legend of Zelda
One of Nintendo’s most loved franchises, this game could be made into an amazing movie. If done right, this movie would have a great story, a ton of action, and just be a great adventure. I personally would just love to see Link go through dungeons, get the new items that come in each dungeon, and fight some of the different bosses. It would be so awesome if someone could make a live-action version of this game.
