List Rules Only video game adaptations.

A list of the best video game movies. All of the best video game movies have been included, but if you believe we missed any of your favorite films based on video games, please feel free to add it to the list of the best films based on video games yourself. While every major genre has been included, most of the best video game films are either sci-fi, fantasy, or action. In Hollywood, video game movies are almost synonymous with "bad movies". That said, there have been some relatively decent ones, such as the "Prince of Persia" film, and the "Final Fantasy" animated feature, thought there is still a relatively undefined question about what the best video game movies are. If you're a gamer though, then you're bound to enjoy at least a few of the films based on video games on this list.
