The connection between Games and TV series/Movies
Video games and TV Series/Movies get along very well. Countless TV series and movies have been adapted from video games, and movies and TV series inspire many games. Even a few decades ago, no one could have imagined a time when video games would be as lifelike and graphically stunning as Hollywood blockbusters. Other than the fact that games are interactive due to the developments in visuals and CPU performance, today’s generation sees little difference between games and movies. It’s been remarkable to see how rapidly everything transitioned. So, to put it simply, in this article, we will talk about the games adapted from TV Series or Movies.
Below are some of the popular games which are adapted from TV Series and Movies.
1. The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series
Developed by Telltale games, the comic and TV Series inspired the game. Each decision players make inside the game impacts how the plot develops. The game puts a firm hold on character and plot development; playing it frequently gives the feel that players are watching the interactive version of the popular TV Series The Walking Dead. As authentic a simulation of the zombie apocalypse as there is, The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series has received high praise from critics. It is available on Steam.
2. Game of Thrones
The Game of Thrones: A Telltale series video game has an entirely new narrative structure based on the Game of Thrones universe created by HBO. It tends to centre on House Forrester, a minor noble house in Westeros best known for its enormous ironwood tree groves. The game begins after the television show’s Red Wedding, and the Forresters are supporters of House Stark. You can check the details on Steam.
3. Dragon Ball
One famous and favourite TV series that later came to the gaming world was Dragon Ball. Video games from the Dragon Ball series have appeared in various genres and on different platforms. Players could play the story mode versus mode, a tournament, or a battle ranking stage where they fight against the AI opponents in a challenge involving 100 fighters. Though many games are released, check out the Dragon Ball Z KAKAROT on Bandai Namco’s official site.
Well, there are many other games adapted from many popular series. Currently, these are the well-liked adaptations based on fan-favourite TV Series and Movies. This adaptation process will continue as both Games, and TV Series/ Movies are inspired by each other. In the future, we might see some blockbusters turning into games and games turning into blockbusters.
