Over the last few years, video games have started to earn some of the same critical acclaim as movies and television. Their breathtaking worlds and in-depth stories mean they have become great ways to experience fiction. While plenty of titles have made the jump to Hollywood to become feature films, there are definitely even more video games that would make great TV series. This is especially true when you consider that so many video games take inspiration from television and books in the first place.
The lack of critically and commercially successful movie adaptations might well be due to the fact that most video games are just better suited to the format of television shows. After all, video games are usually far longer than a standard movie. They also tend to include a wide variety of characters, complex worlds, and story arcs that can be better explored through the longer format that TV offers.
