Making any kind of art that’s inspired by or another version of another piece of art is a tough job. When there’s source material, there are always going to be differing opinions on how best to be faithful to it. You can never please anyone, which is what turns people off of it. However, in recent years, there have been a bunch of TV shows and movies that are based on games, whether that means telling an alternate story in the universe of that game or retelling the same story. Naturally, these are met with mixed reactions. Of course, right now (at the time of writing), HBO’s The Last of Us is coming out weekly and is pretty much hitting it out of the park in every aspect. That inspired us to take a look at some of the best and most notable tv shows and movies based on video games in some way, shape, or form. Check it out below.
