We all love playing video games. It’s unimaginable to have a world without games in our lives. When you play a video game, you seek an experience which you can’t achieve in real life. Films help in a very similar manner. You watch a film and you envy the characters for all they can do in their virtual lives. Only that video games have their own age group while films are watched by anyone and everyone. Video games offer you to be part of the experience while in films, you just look at things as an outsider. Both are equally visually stunning and give you a chance at realizing your dreams.
In such a scenario, the concept of having films based on video games or giving movies the feel of video games is certainly a novel one. Throughout history, there have been many films inspired by video games. Some flopped while others thrived completely. The fact that these films have an automatic fan base without any marketing adds to the advantage. With all that said, here is the list of the best video game movies. You can watch some of these top video game movies on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
