It’s no surprise that a number of technology enthusiasts also happen to be avid video game players. There have been countless gaming franchises over the years, many of which were successful enough to warrant a transition to the big screen.
The first game-to-movie I remember seeing was Super Mario Bros. way back in 1993 although I wasn’t a terribly impressed with it. Other notable theatrical releases include Mortal Kombat in 1995, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider in 2001, Resident Evil a year later and Max Payne in 2008. If I had to pick a favorite, it’d either be the first Resident Evil or Max Payne, perhaps because I was a big fan of both games.
With this week’s open forum, we want to hear about your favorite or least favorite video game to movie adaptation. Optionally, which game would you like to see made into a feature film?
