What video games should be movies? Several of the most well known and popular video games of all time could easily be made into potentially excellent feature films. This list includes several of the biggest and best video games ever: Assassin's Creed, BioShock and some of the Zelda and Grand Theft Auto games as well. Vote for the games you think would make the best movies, vote down any that you don't think would work and of course, add any that might be missing. You can also rerank this list in any order you want.

Adapting a great video game into a movie is a risky proposition. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it just doesn't. You can't blame Hollywood for trying though, because the video gaming industry is a billion dollar business. Combine that with a hit feature film, and you've got tens of billions in potential profit. Examples? How about 1995's 'Mortal Kombat' or the 'Lara Croft Tomb Raider' series? And of course, the 'Resident Evil' movies have done quite well at the box office too.

Which current video games should be made, immediately, into a movie? Some of the best include 'Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic' and 'Batman: Arkham Asylum.' Here's a great fancast for 'Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic' as an example. The main requirement to make a successful video game to movie adaptation? You need the most compelling video game storylines. Start with the basics, and go from there - you can't lose!
