Top 5 Best Movie Inspired Games

Good games that are based on or inspired by movies are hard to come by. Due to the fact the game often is scheduled to be released when the movie is released, there is not a lot of time to make sure the game is as good as it can be. E.T, a video game based on the hit movie, was partially responsible for the video game crash of ’83. There are a lot of games based on movies that comes out every year, mainly during the summer movie season and a few games out there are actually good. They may not be perfect, but they stand out from the hoard of dull games that are based on movies. (Goldeneye 007, PC, PS3, Retro, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, Xbox 360, X-Men Origins: Wolverine)

Nintendo 64 entertainment system exclusive Goldeneye 007 is still to this very day the greatest movie inspired game I have ever played. The pioneer of console FPS, and 4 player split screen action that was only possible on the Nintendo 64 entertainment system at the time. We were sure lucky for the choices Nintendo made in those times to add 4 controller ports on every Nintendo 64 entertainment system.

If you dig deep into your childhood memory to a time when gaming was at one of its highest points (N64 era). Chances are you will likely remember the amazing experiences you had with Goldeneye 007 on your Nintendo 64 entertainment system. All of those split screen multiplayer matches. All of the times you ran through single player on the different settings. All of the landmines you set trying to sucker your friends into their 00 agent style doom.

If your rules were legit, you also banned Oddjob from being selected in deathmatch because he was cheap. You raced to the blue body armor, and did your best to make sure you were the one to find and equip the RCP90. We all owe a bit of respect to goldeneye 007 and the Nintendo 64 entertainment system for making an almost once impossible situation come to reality. The birth of competitive FPS titles on console.

Have a blessed day and happy gaming.

The Warriors for me. Also Spider Man 2 was great fun.

Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie is pretty good.

I got to say I am a fan and it was actually pretty decent but Evil Dead Regeneration for Ps3/Xbox was awesome. It was funny and played well and rolled right into the theme of Sam Raimi's twisted world very well.

I also got to give it up to Spiderman 2 which is still one of the best sandbox games around. I think the Amazing Spidey game is taking a lot from it and I am really looking forward to it. I also enjoyed Where the Wild Things Are for it's sort of poor man's Ico/SotC but fun and interesting design.

I did like Wolverine and thank God to the devs for saving it. It started as a stand alone IP and the movie producers got a hold of it and changed it into a movie IP. It could of been the next Arkham Asy/City. It was screwed with but still decent. They should still make another one not related to the movies at all. You can tell hence the game is a gorefest and Wolverine is a true killer and the movies is very downplayed and family freindly
