It’s hard to think of a movie based on a video game which is actually any good, but with the impressive looking big screen adaptation of Warcraft on the way things could be about to change!

Ubisoft have recently released the first look trailer for their movie version of Assassin’s Creed, starrubg Michael Fassbender and early buzz is very positive. So, which other successful video games could and should be brought to your local cinema?

Well, here are ten suggestions to join those already in development… What did we miss? Let us know in the comments below.

10. Killzone

Killzone

On the surface, Killzone looks like yet another generic sci-fi shooter, but a solid movie adaptation could result in the best sci-fi actioner since Aliens! The main baddies in this series are the Helghast; a faction of human descendants who despise humanity, but require a gas mask to breathe on their polluted planet. Players are put in control of Interplanetary Strategic Alliance Captain Jan Templar, the leader of the force attempting to resist the invasion of one of Earth’s colonies from the Helghast. A later instalment features the ISA taking the fight to the Helghast, and either of these would make a great basis for a big screen adaptation. As well as the unique setting and characters, the clear parallels between the Nazis and Helghast could result in this being a movie which is a lot deeper and has a much more interesting story to tell than similar releases.
