What obscure movie would make the best video game?

We all know about the best movie to game adaptations, like Doom and Max Payne, but what about the more unusual movies that would make great games? What film do you think would be best suited to the interactive medium?

While the likes of Edge of Tomorrow and The Matrix have already had their games, a video game sequel to movies is genius. Like Iron Man with RPG elements and a variety of armors, or maybe like a LA Noire meets Sleeping Dogs game with a movie-specific protagonist. We’ve picked several movies for our list, but you can pick your own in our best PC games list.

Here are some of the most obscure movie adaptations that would make fantastic games:

Rush Hour could be an LA Noire meets Sleeping Dogs game. Chan is on a case, and you have to escort him to the location while also keeping civilians safe and dealing with the enemies. There could be a DLC where Jackie Chan plays himself, and you can take him to the tailor, where he changes into his disguise.

This is a cyberpunk show on Netflix, and it has a lot of interesting ideas. There’s a lot of potential for a game – you could be a drug dealer trying to sell enough to live comfortably, with a DLC where you play as the girlfriend who gets hooked on the drugs.

Requiem for a Dream could be a game about selling drugs to live comfortably, with a DLC where you play as the girlfriend.

This would be a game where you recruit people over the internet to help you with strange tasks, like looking under the bed or going to the drawer in the kitchen. Perhaps there could be a DLC where you play as the dog.

Skinamarink could be a game with objectives like looking under the bed and going to the drawer in the kitchen.

The Sims explains why windows and doors suddenly disappear.

Cube already has a similar game called Half Dead.

Chronicle could be a good dark game adaptation, maybe in the style of Prototype.

The Raid Redemption would make a great survival/horror/martial arts game.

The World’s End would make a great multiplayer roguelite game, with each level having a different villain.

The Warriors would make a great game with different zones and unique enemies.

Toxic Avenger could be a game about trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world.

Day of the Triffids would be an FPS survival game set in overgrown cities.

Cowboy Bebop, Blame!, and Hunger Games movies would all make fantastic games.

The Last Starfighter would be a great open-world space simulation game.

A horror game with Shakma the aggressive monkey would be interesting.

Galaxy Quest would be a fun game to play.

Chronicles of Riddick, Equilibrium, and Patlabor would all make cool games.

Existenz would make an interesting video game.

Interstate 60 would be a walking simulator in driving form, where you explore different towns and do odd jobs.

And that’s our take on some of the most obscure movie adaptations that would make fantastic games. What movies do you think would make for good games? Let us know in the comments, and we might add them to our list.
