Video games are known, and often judged to be underwhelming and sometimes they lack a story and quality. There are some people that simply would love to experience the amazing stories while sitting down and not moving a finger, with the amazing graphics and sound effects that the movies can offer. For these kinds of people, we have a list of five movies that are inspired by video games, and before going into the list.
Silent Hill may as well be the one of the terrifying game series ever to be developed, bringing psychologically terrifying and reality-bending stories. Some of the most odd-looking creatures invented by the creativity of the human mind could be found here, and to turn this into a movie seemed to be an immense task. But director Christoph Gans took things in his hands and decided to make this Konami game into the perfect video game movie, and so he did!
Warcraft: The Beginning
An action Fantasy film made by Duncan Jones that is inspired by the best MMORPG game and one of the best-rated video games of all time – World of Warcraft. This long-anticipated game made its debut in 2016 and received astonishing feedback from the viewers.
The film is set in the world of Azeroth and the main encounter in it is the encounter between the humans and the orcs. Several amazing locations are included in the movie that is already seen in the game.
Justin Kurzel definitely made one of the best video game inspired movies with the Assassin’s Creed. The game is perfectly explained in the movie, whistle using some of the latest technology that Hollywood can offer, it made it look outstandingly awesome. The story is the same – the everlasting battle between the Templars and the eternal pursuit of the Apple of Eden. The movie has an amazing outcome and ending, and it is definitely the movie we would recommend you watch.
Paul W. S. Anderson and Jeremy Bolt made an outstanding connection between their movie and the Japanese Capcom game with the same name. What is strange is that the feedback is constantly negative about this game, but the six series of Resident Evil are grossed over $1.233 billion worldwide, which means there are a lot of people watching it. These science fiction action—horror movie series are definitely on the top 5 list of best video game inspired movies.
Seems like Paul W. S. Anderson found the recipe for successful game inspired movies, as he directed this 1995 fighting film. This is a Fantasy Martial Arts movie inspired by the game that shifted the boundaries of violence in video games. The plot is same as the theme in the game – a tournament where contestants from Earth and the Outworld are fighting for the future of the Earth. If the Outworld competitors win, Shao Kahn will be given the right to invade, and most likely conquer Earth, so it is the Earth’s competitors to determine the faith of the planet
