<![CDATA[The Greatest RPG Video Games Ever Made]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-greatest-rpg-video-games-ever-made
The best pure Role-Playing Games, Action-RPG hybrids and MMORPG's of all time, as voted on by the Ranker Community. The popularity of role-playing games far predates video game technology entirely, and many of the genre's standards, settings and concepts continue to draw strong influence from the pen-and-paper games of the past (particularly the granddaddy of them all, Dungeons & Dragons, or D&D.) In traditional Role-Playing Games, the player controls a character in a fictional world or setting, and takes a strong hand in determining how that character chooses to progress through the environment. This can involve determining the character's nature and outlook, his or her development through quests and missions and potentially joining up with other characters, either NPC or representing other human players. They tend to be more character and plot-driven games in many ways, as opposed to games that put more emphasis on stealth, puzzle-solving or combat. In some ways, new technology has simply made RPG's easier to organize and faster to play through, removing the need for a "gamemaster" and reliance on dice or other physical means of determining game outcomes.

Many of the most popular RPGs are part of a larger franchise, set in a familiar world that has been established over the course of numerous games (and sometimes tie-in novels, short films or other media.) The "Final Fantasy" RPG franchise is perhaps the most significant and long-standing in video game history, and in fact at this point has branched out beyond traditional role-playing games to include entires focused on tactical role-playing, action role-playing, MMORPG's, racing games, third person shooters and even rhythm and fighting games. It has also inspired numerous animated films, tie in novels and comic books. (Unlike many other RPG series that are all based in a single setting or universe - such as the "Elder Scrolls" series Tamriel or Azeroth from Blizzard's "Warcraft" games - "Final Fantasy" entries tend to take place in different settings and have sharply distinguished plotlines.)

<![CDATA[The Best Comic Book Based Video Games]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-comic-book-video-games/ranker-comics
Video games are about the closest you can get to becoming someone else, you know, without all the surgery and name changing to be done. And who would you rather be than a superhero. These are the best video games based on comic book superheroes of all time. 

Video games have evolved since the days of Atari and the first Nintendo, but some may argue that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for NES (one of the classics) is the best. Recently, Batman has taken the video game community by storm with his Arkham games all on his own. Most notably Batman: Arkham City, which allows you to fight off the evil Joker (amongst others) in a rundown part of Gotham City. 

Now, you get to decide which comic book superhero video games are the absolute best. Make sure to vote up the ones you love, and vote down the ones that don't even deserve to be on this list. If you see your favorite comic book video game missing, make sure to add it. 


Marvel: Ultimate Alliance

Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes

<![CDATA[15 Games That Should Be Made Into Movies]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/15-games-that-should-be-made-into-movies/andreww-curley
A list of games, or game franchises, I'd like to see adapted to the big screen.


A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia
I think it could be a fun fully animated feature for the kids, or with the trend of turning cartoons into live-action/CGI hybrids; I could see this working as one of those as well.

Candy Land
If they can take a board game like Battleship; that didn't really have much to work with to begin, and turn it into a movie. Even though it bombed in the box office. Surely, they can create a movie for Candy Land. At least Candy Land already has characters that they can build a plot around. I could see it as a fun live-action film for the families to enjoy.

Mega Man
I think this would make for a great children's action-adventure flick, either done as total live-action or one of those live-action/CGI hybrids.

Resident Evil
I'm well aware that there's already a film series for this franchise, but I'm one of those who believes they veered off on the wrong path; and it's now time to reboot.

Super Mario Bros.
I think it's been long enough since that travesty in the early 90's, most of us should be over it by now. The Mario Bros deserves to have a proper film adaptation.

The Legend of Zelda
One of the biggest franchises in the world of games, and yet still no movies for it... why? Get a move on it Hollywood!

Could make a fun comedy about a millionaire trying to buy up the entire city, and the lengths a couple must go through to stop him from being able to take their family business from them; or something like that.

Dead Island
Since it'll probably be a while before we ever get a reboot of the Resident Evil film franchise, why not in the meantime just adapt another zombie game series into movies; but do it right.

Hmm... I was trying to think of the best way to adapt this game; and I've decided that I could see it being a great action flick, but I would modernize it a little. Get rid of the stereotypes of how a warrior, valkyrie, wizard, and elf should look like. No more warrior in a loin cloth, or wizard in a baggy robe carrying a big old stick.

Loved the comedy from the 80's, but I'd also like to see a new Clue movie. I'd like to see a version that's a little more on the serious side. Make it a true murder mystery.

<![CDATA[The Best Game Systems of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-game-systems-of-all-time
There have been numerous video game systems throughout the years, but which one is the best? Starting in the 70's the daddy of all home video game consoles, the Atari, was released. It introduced the world to games that were able to be played on your home television. With the rise of the arcade, people were jumping at the chance to take the video games home with them, and thus the popularity of the video game home system was born.

There have been many different companies that have tried to release video game systems throughout the years. Companies like Atari, Sega, Nintendo, Coleco, Microsoft, and many more. Each of these companies have released a number of different consoles as the years and technology have progressed. Nintendo has had the NES, Super NES, Nintendo 64, Gamecube and Wii. (This is not even including the portable systems like Gameboy, DS and 3DS.) Sony has their Playstation 1, 2 and PS3, along with their Vita and PSP. Sega had the Mastersystem, Genesis, Saturn and Dreamcast. Microsoft had the Xbox and Xbox 360.

After the mid-90's the playing field drastically changed and most other companies fell away since they couldn't keep up with the advancing technology. The big 3, Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft came out the clear winners. This is a list of the best video game console systems of all time so feel free to vote for your favorite and add any that aren't here.
