Here are the Next Video Game Adaptations We Want to See

As The Super Mario Bros. movie passes one billion dollars at the box office, a new wave of cinematic adaptations of video games are inevitable. Here are games we would most like to see turned into full length feature films! 

Burnout 3: Takedown (2004)

Think Fast and the Furious, but instead of impassioned speeches about living life one mile at a time, the ringleader is a heavily concussed man stressing the importance of rolling your car through a four way intersection and seeing how many cars you can bounce it off of. 

FIFA ’22 (2021)

Fans have long clamored for an adaptation of the iconic EA sports title, preferably in the form of multiple 2-Hour installments over a multiple month season

Street Fighter: The Movie (The Arcade Game) (1995)

I’ve always felt there was something oddly cinematic about this game that would make for a great movie. Hell, you could even get Jean Claude Van-Damme to reprise his role as Guile!

Fortnite (2017)

There should be a constant Fortnite movie that’s always going and it’s playing in one screen at the theater and you can always pop your head in and go “oh shit that’s dope,” at whatever’s going on at the moment.

GoldenEye 007 (1997)

GoldenEye would make a sick movie, dude. 

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 (2001)

A lot of the work is done for anyone looking to turn my favorite video game of all time into a movie. Tony is in an airport at some point, presumably flying to the big tournament on Skater Island, and along the way he has to stop five pickpockets! There’s an action scene right there. Throw in a few jokes, some kind of cute animal sidekick, and a Suicide Machines song or two and there’s a movie there!

Wave Race 64 (1996)

90 minutes of chill jet ski footage with nice music would be better than half the movies that come out every year. Someone should really jump on this one.

Metroid (1986)

“Time to get into a giant ball again,” she’ll say throughout. Hmm. This one will be tough to make cool, but I bet they can do it. Maybe put Donkey Kong in there!
