Video game movies get a bad rap. For many years now, the words “based on the popular video game” usually suggest you’ll be watching something that’ll make your eyes die. Don’t believe me? Watch Mortal Kombat: Annihilation and tell me you didn’t just lose 95 minutes of your life that you’ll never get back. Honestly, does anyone know what the actual plot of that movie was?
Being suckers for punishment, though, we’ll still check out these films, because video games rule. On the other hand, there are a lot of cool franchises that have seemingly disappeared from the silver screen without any forewarning or reason. If we can receive a 100 crappy Resident Evil films, why can’t a few others make a comeback, too?
Without further ado, here are 10 video game franchises that deserve another shot in Hollywood. If we missed out on one, or you disagree with the list, let us know in the comments section below. Also, before you comment that Mortal Kombat isn’t on the list, remember that the reboot is imminent and it’s being produced by James Wan.
