There’s always been a huge problem with making video game franchises into movies, the situation handled so badly it’s never come out well. Over the past few years, we’ve heard a whole plethora of intellectual properties in the video gaming world are being churned out into money grabbing movies. Below is a list of video games and video game franchises that I think could make fantastic movies.
10. Duke Nukem
Okay, hear me out. It seemed like Duke Nukem had died a slow unpleasant death until the last few years when he saw a revival in the form of the Duke Nukem Forever, a game twelve years in the making. Needless to say, it didn’t live up to the hype. I think the character needs a proper send off in the form of a film exploring the death of the macho character, the removal of the 90s badass from the cultural zeitgeist.
