Reader Discussion: Which Summer Movie Should Become A Video Game?

by Matt Miller on Jul 26, 2016 at 01:18 PM

We’ve had some big movies hit in the last several months, including titles like Captain America: Civil War, Star Trek Beyond, The Legend of Tarzan, X-Men Apocalypse, Independence Day: Resurgence, and Finding Dory, not to mention upcoming releases like Jason Bourne and Suicide Squad. The summer season has for decades been a hotspot for big tentpole film releases, taking advantage of younger folks out of school and older viewers on holiday from work. But even with big ticket sales, few of those movies have made a successful transition into great video games. Maybe that’s because the best ideas just haven’t been voiced.

So, what’s it going to be? Whether from this summer or the movie blockbusters of yesteryear, which big movie deserves a new video game treatment? Maybe your favorite movie got a video game, but it was awful – how could it have been better? 

Share your movie pick in the comments below, and tell us what kind of game you hope that game developers would make based on it. We’re pretty sure all the big Hollywood producers are going to be reading your responses, and they'll get right to work on lining up a game development partnership.
