With the release of Wreck-it Ralph finally upon us, it’s as good a time as any to look back and reflect on the (arguably) troubled history of video game movies.
It’s no secret that most video game-to-film adaptations fail to capture the essence of what makes their source material so special. Poor reviews and lower-than-expected box office returns provide evidence of the short comings of release after release. However, once in a blue moon, a movie actually manages to break the shoddy mold and emerge a mainstream success. Wreck-it Ralph looks to break that mold as many reviewers are already going as far as to claim that it is the best video game movie ever.
That’s a bold statement (kind of…) and it makes us, here at MMO ATK, wonder what you believe to be the best video game movie ever and why you think so? Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Tomb Raider, Prince of Persia, etc…? No matter what your opinion now, do you think you’ll have a change of heart after seeing Ralph?
Sound off below.
