When you have a favorite movie (or TV show), you never want it to end; you’ll be devastated when a season or the trilogy is over. But, developers can save the day by creating a game based off of your favorite movie or TV show. Here is a list of ten great video games that were based off of movies.
1) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2
Harry Potter has been able to capture the love and attention of readers, movie lovers, and gamers for the last handful of years now. Although there are numerous Harry Potter video games, I picked this one because it is one of the most current/newest ones available.
- $23.75 on Amazon
- Xbox 360 and PS3
2) Batman: Arkham Asylum
Batman has always sparked interest in people, ever since the comic book series. With the success of the most recent Batman movies, it was no surprise more video games started coming out. I loved playing as the Batman, navigating Arkham Asylum and attempting to save the day. The great thing about the game, though, is that characters from the movies come into play (you have to defeat them, of course). It’s a fun game!
- $18.53 on Amazon
- Xbox 360 and PS3
3) Batman: Arkham City
Just like the movie trilogy, the games play off of one another by continuing on in another edition. The Batman games have been so popular for the last handful of years; the developers do a great job at creating interactive maps, characters, and challenging things that you must overcome.
- $17.35 on Amazon
- Xbox 360 and PS3
4) Batman: Arkham Origins
Everybody loves prequels, and here is the prequel to the last two Batman games. There is an extended map of Gotham City, along with a brand new storyline that tells the history of events before Arkham Asylum. Like the other two games, this one is a favorite among gamers and is very fun to play!
- $29.39 on Amazon
- Xbox 360, PS3, Nintendo 3DS, and Nintendo Wii U
5) Amazing Spider-Man
There have been numerous Spider man movies that have come out in the last decade; the first trilogy was with Toby Maguire, but the most recent Spider-Man movie had no connection whatsoever with him and that series. In fact, it’s a completely new Spider-Man series! As such, it’s fitting that they would make a game for it, just like the other company did for the Toby Maguire Spider-Man. This game allows free-roam and new crime fighting techniques to defeat the game.
- $31.70 on Amazon
- Xbox 360, PS3, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo DS, and Nintendo Wii
6) X-Men Origins: Wolverine – Uncaged Edition
If you’re a fan of Wolverine, you’ll be a fan of this game! There are a lot of customs moves in the game and it related to the movie that bears its name. It’s rated M- for mature, so be advised that it’s not necessarily for younger kids.
- $26.99 on Amazon
- Xbox 360, PS3, Nintendo DS, Sony PSP
7) Captain America: Super Soldier
With the newest Captain America movies set to come up soon, it seems fitting to include the game that goes along with that series. If you are a fan of the Avengers, Marvel Universe, and Captain America, this game should provide some joy for you.
- $24.80 on Amazon
- Nintendo Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS
8) Thor: God of Thunder
Thor took the world by storm when the movie was first released. Every since, he has been increasing his popularity with his own movies and with The Avengers team. This game is directly related to the Thor movie, and just like with other superhero games, you get to beat up on bad guys and save the day!
- $23.49 on Amazon
- Nintendo Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS
9) Iron Man
Iron Man has become one of the most popular Avengers. In this game, you get to direct parts of Iron Man’s suit, battle jets, tanks, and a host of enemies, and try to save the day while looking cool. This game is a handful of years old, but they made it in preparation for the first Iron Man movie. If things like that excite you, then purchase this game!
- $52.91 on Amazon
- Nintendo Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, Sony PSP, PS2
10) 24 the Game
Based off of the hit TV show, 24, this game allows you to take on some of your favorite characters and attempt to save America from a terroristic threat. Although this is a much older game than the others, I felt it good to include since 24 is returning to television soon! I’m very excited, and if you are too, then you might consider getting this game to put you in more anticipation for the return of Jack! (Jack is back!)
