Here are some of the best movies that were based on video games.

Video games have come a long way since their infancy in the early 1980s. Today, some games have such an incredible, intricate and well thought out storyline that will overrule any 2-hour feature film, and the best part is that you get to play the character!

Some games have stayed true to our childhood and still fascinate us today, just think of the Tomb Raider games, Need For Speed and Hitman. All of which have been flagship game titles since the 1990s.

However, with such a well established and popular game and franchise, they are usually of high interest to movie producers and directors, but it is no easy task. Making a movie based on the storyline of a game has a big advantage for the filmmakers and one disadvantage as well. First of all, the game already has a huge fanbase which will guarantee a lot of interest, but the other side is that the movie cannot be a disappointment at all or else risk significant losses!

Take a look at the video below by YouTube channel, Zoomin Games, on some of the best movies that were based on video games.
