Top 10 Games That Japanese Gamers Can’t Believe Were Made Into Movies (NSFW)

The almost universally dreadful results of the 30 year history of game to movie adaptations, particularly where Hollywood is involved, are highlighted here by Japanese movie fans in this unsurprisingly abysmal ranking. Here are the top ten movies that Japanese gamers couldn't believe were made into movies.

(Warning: Source is NSFW) (Culture, Higurashi, Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers , Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Super Mario Bros., Tekken, Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s Side 1st Love Plus, Tomb Raider, Yakuza)

Each of the games mentioned have the potential to make a great movie.

Unfortunately the film devs / script writers rarely seem to up to the job.

That's the most annoying thing about it, The franchise chosen for a movie iteration is usually pretty popular, that's why it's chosen in the 1st place. But instead of using the source material and sticking close to what actually made the games popular, the directors seem to have the need to change everything, and it just ends up a complete mess

Considering the millions and millions of dollars that went into making these movies, I'm surprised at least one of them didn't end up being a fantastic blockbuster.

I mean, statistically you'd think at least one would be good with the amount of cash that went into making them. :(

It was actually popular in Japan?

By the way, I'm still waiting for the Onechanbara Z Kagura game to come out next year. I need something pretty to fap to while cutting zombies in half.

I wrote MK before, but deleted because it's not Japanese..

Fair enough! :)

(Though I'm now interested in knowing how popular the game-to-movie adaptations based off American games were in Japan)
