When you think of video game to movie adaptations, it may be difficult to stay positive given the genre’s somewhat colorful history. Blockbusters like Prince of Persia or even Doom can’t hold a candle to the excellent games and worlds that inspired them. And as the ever-changing landscape of the film industry reshapes itself, we hope for newer, memorable, and more faithful tales worthy of the established names they’ve been given.
And there’s a whole bevy of video game-inspired movies on the horizon, ranging from “wow” (Warcraft, Assassin’s Creed) to “WTF” (Asteroids, The Sims). Even if it takes them forever and a day to actually release (again, like the Warcraft and Assassin’s Creed movies), we can’t wait for these movies to hit theaters for better or worse.
