When it comes to adapting films into video games, the awesome Neveldine/Taylor film, Gamer – airing this Sunday on IFC – seems like the biggest no-brainer ever. And yet, no game. It’s a travesty! And since we’re on the subject, here are 9 other films that would totally make great video games.
9. Ninja 2: Shadow of a Tear
Your wife has been murdered. You retaliate by beating up the entire planet. That’s it. How could anything be better?
8. The Wolf of Wall Street
Like in a Kairosoft game, you start your own highly nefarious stockbroker company from the ground up but must balance your insatiable hunger for illicit activities with growing attention of the FBI. And if you’re really lucky, you can even turn into a wolf.
Travel through a crumbling NYC to save your estranged girlfriend while a huge monster attacks. Beat the game and unlock Cloverfield Mode, which lets you play as the monster itself. Eat Hud as soon as you possibly can.
