Games that can make for awesome movies

Posted By | On 30th, Oct. 2009 Under Editorials | Follow This Author @GamingBoltTweet

As everyone knows that hardcore gamers don’t only play video games, they live them. According to many of them, video games are better than movies and for about $60 they get tons of fun and an awesome 12-15 hour action packed adventure. Some even imagine if those games can ever hit the silver screen. Well we at GamingBolt think the same too. So here is our wish list for the video games we would love too see on the big screen.

  • Uncharted

If there is any game that can pull off what Holloywood can not, it’s Uncharted. Some of the amazing scenery and the mind boggling action are so over the top that I don’t even think any Hollywood movie can pull it off. Uncharted is complete in every sense. The story, the amazing characters and the music sounds outstanding. As we all know that a movie is under production and if is half as good as Among Thieves than I am sold.

  • Metal Gear Solid

The question here is which of the seven to eight games you will make your movie based on? MGS, MGS2, MGS3, MGS4, MGS;PO, heck even the old classics were a master piece. But the major drawback of a Metal Gear Solid movie can be the really amazing yet difficult to understand story. The game has everything to take from, one of the best protagonist of all time and a very complex plot. Again, just like Uncharted, a movie is in works…but fingers crossed on how it will work.

  • Gears of War

One of the best exclusives that the Xbox 360 has and a flick based on Marcus Fenix will be just what the doctor would have ordered. Having said that the plot of the game is a bit of hit and miss and as we all know that one of the important elements of a movie is its plot, Gears of War: The Movie if tweaked story wise could do really well. And you know when Microsoft is behind something, their marketing is mostly spot on.

  • Assassin’s Creed

Ubisoft’s epic AAA adventure could stun the movie industry if its movie adaptation is done properly. Just like Metal Gear Solid the story is a bit convoluted but again the setting during The Crusades could be really unique as not many films have been based on history these days.

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

One of the best first person shooter games of all time has the potential of becoming one of the finest movies ever made. Although not a lot of movies are based on war, a one that come in the mind are Saving Private Ryan. With how great Modern Warfare already is as a game, a movie would just be icing on the cake.

Honorable Mentions

  • BioShock
  • Legend of Zelda
  • Halo
  • Infamous

Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

    I think Heavenly Sword would make a decent movie.

  • CF707

    I agree with all except Call of Duty. I think Halo should have taken its place. I’m not a big fan of Halo, but I think it’d make a better movie. At least it got an honorable mention. I think Killzone 2, Starcraft/Warcraft, and maybe the Saboteur could make good movies.

  • Jesse Cortez

    bioshock seems like a cool movie if you make the daddy and have the magic powers then all need is actors an a little girl and a really good guy who can act for the guy in game 😀

  • Dion

    I think a Ratchet & Clank movie would be a great animated film!

  • Desmond

    AC is being made into a movie, Well at least AC2, and its kinda a mini-series leading up to the release of AC2 which will be sweet! Its actually on youtube right now, so enjoy!

  • Rice211

    Pretty good list, my only dispute is metal gear solid. Ive beaten MGS and its sequals but it still takes me 20 minutes to describe to a fellow game-player the convoluted spider-web that is that game’s story. These movies need to be accessible to a wider range than people who gamed in the 90’s. Sad fact but necessary. Even a game with little story like Doom was needed to be pandered to the masses, a failed movie but good example

  • Tackers

    when you mentioned Bioshock it made me think of Pandorum, cuz they has some similarities

  • Prototype would be awsome
