Video games make more money than any movie ever made. The Mario franchise and the Call of Duty franchise have made more money than the Avengers movie franchise, and these games don’t even compare in the number of releases. Video games are made with precision; it takes more effort to create a whole new world from scratch than to imitate one.
I am a sucker for video games; I can’t imagine my life without them. There are a few video games that I would love to see rendered into the cinema screen, and they are –
The Last Of Us
The Last of Us is the greatest game ever for me. The story, action, and intensity were like heaven and hell at the same time. There are only a few movies that present such depth and character arcs. If the story of Joel and Ellie fighting zombies is turned into a film, it will smash the box office.
Call Of Duty
I wonder why Call of Duty has not been a movie franchise simultaneously. They create great war games; they have a massive userbase. There are so many great plotlines to follow if it turns into a movie. So many famed actors would love to join the cast. In the games Kit Harrington and Kevin Spacy already were cast members.
Death Stranding is probably one of the weirdest games of you will ever play, but is so original and immersive. A great cast, including Mads Mikkelsen and Lea Seadox, will engage you to quit everything you are doing and play the game. I want it to become a film so that they get a full spread of the concept; it would be one helluva movie.
