There are plenty of bad games based on movies, it's just ones that aren't tie in products that are good.

The reason that this is the case though is that games have everything that film does already, but adds the extra layer of interactivity with the world. Movies have to take out the interactivity and appeal to an audience that doesn't necessarily understand games. The best videogame movies understand this though.

You know this is a much better perspective to look at game movies from.

The Witcher is great.

Sonic wasn’t that bad, and the sequel is looking decent.

I was shocked at how much I enjoyed it.

What about a game, based off of a movie, that's based off a game? Ratchet and Clank is weird sometimes.

I know it's not a movie, but Arcane might have been the best TV show release this year. Maybe the industry will see it can be done.

Let's be fair, this wasn't a movie Industry project. This was made by a gaming company using a gaming engine to produce the CG effects.

The PS Die Hard game was weirdly good. Lots of running people down with cars if I remember.

Bruh you serious? Movie games have been trash for most of gaming's life span. Like genuinely the only good movie tie game I have ever played is Spider-man 2. Everything else around that era was shovelware wearing an IP's skin.

Movie licensed games were trash for ages.

I'd hardly call Detective Pikachu a good movie, but they absolutely nailed the aesthetic of more realistic Pokemon.

Could definitely be used as a springboard for adaptations of the actual mainline games, some of them had decent stories.

Not all game movies suck. Some are just "eh..."

This post is (almost) perfect, I was compelled to reward it with a silver medal 🙂

Prince of Persia is a very good movie though...

Movie games are mostly awful. Last good "movie game" I played was Mad Max. However; a lot of the shows coming out based on games are great, just look at the Witcher. Granted that Mario movie was an absolute abortion and the Mila Jovovich Res Evils were awful.

The Witcher show and game are based on a book series.

Let's not forget that Monster Hunter was also awful. I enjoyed the first RE movie, though.

The 80s and 90s weren't too bad. Ocean were pretty good at knocking out movie tie ins.

I actually really like the silent hill movie. It's not fantastic or as good as the game but it was a good horror movie.

Angry birds is a good ass movie

Yeah, that movie about how you should never trust foreigners and immigrants because they're actually here with nefarious intentions and will eat your children was great. Such a lovely moral in a children's movie
