Based on the recent success of movies like Uncharted and Sonic we could be witnessing a new trend where game makers would try to get more and more movies based off of their games made and circulated into the mases. Reason is simple, the games have a massive audience already. A lot of those people who know about that game know it well enough that even if they don’t really have the time to play it they might just go ahead and want to watch it in the cinema.
Its the perfect formula for instant success.
What this does in return is that if old players used to play a game and stopped playing it for a while they get interested in the gaming title once again after watching the hype on the media of the new movie about the past favorite game. This entices many people to pick up the old games they were not playing and start playing them again. This leads to additional sales for those games as well as new and old players might come to play that game once again.
Its a win win formula.
Recently we have had a sneak peak of “The Last of Us” HBO series which already is turning looking as if its going to be a huge hit with Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey looking good on the screen. As a gamer I wish we could have had the original actors but most of these characters are made up with animations and CGI. They have a real voice actor but they don’t really have an actual actor. I believe that could be a thing of the past now as well. As CGI can do wonders and real actors can be turned into the CGI animations of those actors in those games too. But I suppose the cinema and TV hasn’t come that far yet.
To watch my gameplay of “The Last of Us” follow this playlist here,
There is also some news about a feature film adaptation of Days Gone now that is a wonderful game as well.
If you are thinking about watching some gameplay of Days Gone go ahead and watch my playlist,
It would be exciting to see in the coming future which and what games turn out to be part of the cinema for us. I would love to see a good version of “God of War”.
