You have seen so many movies which are based on games and they were miserably failed at the box office. Leading examples like Prince of Persia, Assassin’s Creed, Max Payne and many more in the list.
But these movies aren’t successful as these games were and this mentality stopped the producers for having another thought of making a game into a movie. So what they had missed sot that these bigger projects getting failed? Is is it direction or the plot, we will discuss in this post what’s missing.
Actually, these games based movies missed the main motive of the game. To show something different, they had twisted the plot completely and confused the fans unintentionally. So the fundamental plot is necessary for a story buildup, some movies adapted it and some missed it at the very first place.
Movies Should be Interactive
Video games are so interactive that it could connect the gamer to the story and this is what needs. Whereas Movies based on games lack interactivity and this directly have an impact on the audience. They watched the movie because of the games they loved and later got disappointed.
Games are lacking so much and mechanics are the main reason for it. In movies, They can’t implement the main features of the game mechanics which are quite offensive for the gamers. It’snot clear whether it is due to budget issues or they really don’ want it but this made a movie not worth watching.
