Games that deserve the movie or series treatment

Mar 11, 2023

Move on, comic book movies. Movies based on popular games will eventually have their big break soon.

With the success of films like The Last of Us on HBO, Uncharted starring Tom Holland, the Sonic the Hedgehog movies, and unexpected productions based on Battleship and Clue, there's no denying the eventual impact of games on the visual medium.

The power of a good narrative can make a lifeless game into a tentpole film, and a good one into something better. Here, we list down some of the games we are really interested to see on the big screen.


wordle movie

The instant success of Wordle, a quick word game where players guess the five-letter "Word of the Day" in limited means, will inevitably find its way somewhere. Maybe, it's a documentary series behind its success or even a comedy-drama that subtly incorporates it in the story. Absurd as it sounds like, should we remind ourselves even more than Hollywood would devote their big checks out to something that's trending.


monopoly movie

Hollywood has a long affair with Monopoly. The popular board game has sprung various iterations from across different IPs and countries, and many filmmakers have unsurprisingly been toying with the idea of a full-length movie based on it. Comedian Kevin Hart has been previously attached to star in the untitled project based on Monopoly, and while the project is still uncertain, we wouldn't mind a good fun time if it pushes through.

Grand Theft Auto

Video games are the easiest medium to be adapted on film because of the world-building it already has. Grand Theft Auto may not have a movie equivalent, but its playthrough is already cinematic in its right. Delving in the crazy criminal underbelly has the right promise of a promising movie, or a multi-season series on TV/ streaming like Narcos.


Mahjong Solitaire in Mortgage Calculator

Solitaire, like many card games, has no foundation to even warrant a two-hour story, but the emergence of Chess fans through series like The Queen's Gambit could undeniably share the same fate with a classic game of decks. Not many people may not be educated on how to play it (it's actually fun if you get to try it, sites like Mortgage Calculator can guide you on your playing journey), but so is Mahjong, and that game has stemmed a variety of films and countless television soap operas.

Mortgage Calculator even combines the best of these two aforementioned games through the Mahjong Solitaire, which not only combines them but merges the best qualities of the two. It's a simple yet puzzling experience if you get to try it.
