Movie-Inspired Video Game Adaptations

The recent success of Illumination’s latest movie based on the Super Mario Brothers franchise has paved the way for many more adaptations based on famous video game franchises. From Naughty Dog’s “The Last of Us” Show to Sega’s “Sonic the Hedgehog” movies, video games have stories to show on a big screen to millions worldwide. But it must be done right in order to succeed. Sometimes just putting the story together into a 2-hour movie just isn’t enough sometimes. Try maybe changing some of the flaws the original story had and changing it to make the story better. “The Last of Us” perfectly encapsulates this by changing some parts of the story but still telling what the games had. I believe that stories can be told from these games but they need to understand the material in order for fans to enjoy it.
