Best Video Game Movies Of All Time (2022 Updated)

Here are the best video game movie adaptations of all time based on IMDB ratings & reviews.

Hearing the news of your favorite game turned into a movie can be exciting for many fans. But as many players point out, the main problem lies with the creators trying to cramp a 12 to 50-hour game into a 1-hour 30 mins movie. No matter the effort, the emotions and feelings of such long stories can’t be entirely explored in movies. For this, to work we really need series like Dota: Dragon’s Blood which turned out to really good with an IMDB rating of 7.8, and even the new Halo series with a 7 rating. Still, we can’t stop dreaming about a day when we get good Mass Effect trilogy movies. So for the time being, here are upcoming Video Game Movies and also a list of current best movies based on video games ranked by IMDB ratings.
