Five Films That Would Make Incredible Video Games

Mike writes, "Instead of trying to capitalize on a movie’s release, the best thing to do is go let the video game’s development cycle happen naturally. If it’s good, it will find an audience regardless of the age of its associated film. Hell, Goldeneye came out a good two years after the movie and it’s still regarded as one of the most important games of all time. More recently, Batman: Arkham Asylum redefined the superhero game by existing alongside the Nolan films without depending on them. Indeed, there are good licenses out there, and here are a few that are still untapped." (Big Trouble in Little China, Culture, Escape from L.A., eXistenZ, Machete, Surviving the Game)

eXistenZ, that was so weird. Of course that's redundant; it is a Cronenberg movie after all.

So a game about a movie about a game? That's some inception business right there.

Westworld. A western/medieval/future theme park ran by robots who turn evil and secretly plot to take over the human race by cloning everybody. Before Michael Crichton gave us Jurassic Park he gave us Westworld and Futureworld.

Any film or show with an incredible concept can make a good game just look at walking dead....i dont know why the films listed here would make better video games if initially those 5 films were already bad to start with. really can machete and escape from LA be a good game right now? maybe it we were still in the 80's. gamers right now tend to go with games with strong plot lines like last of us, uncharted and arkham city to name a few.
