10 Awesome Trailers to Fan-Made Video Game Movies

It’s pretty obvious that pretty much every movie that has ever been based on a video game has been utter crap.  When the best of the genre are Silent Hill and the Resident Evil series, you know you’re in trouble.  Quite simply, movie producers and directors don’t “get” the games they turn into movies, and if they do, those games should have never been adapted into movies to begin with.  Video game fans, it seems, have a much better idea about what the genre should be – if it’s bad ass, make it bad ass, and if it’s silly, well, make it silly.  After the jump, take a look at the work of said fans, and enjoy 10 awesome trailers to fan-made video game movies.  My personal favorite is either Paperboy or Halo (despite Halo using clips from games and commercials).

Got any fan-made video game movie trailers I didn’t include?  Let me know in the comments section and if you provide a link to a cool one, I’ll think about adding it.

    you missed the minesweeper video and also the half-life 2 (3 parts i think) movie!

  11. Gameron 01 Oct 2009 at 10:31 am

    That Zelda one was awesome! Why couldn’t they actually make that movie, they would get my money for sure ;)

  12. Madisonon 01 Oct 2009 at 10:35 am

    I didn’t include Minesweeper since it was from College Humor. Nothing against CH, but I wanted to showcase videos from more “amateur” creators.

    Goes to show that, if they had the time, resources, and capital, the fans could potentially make the game movies we want to see.

    When I did a Google search to compare actors with Freeman, I discovered this:

    I had not even thought of him!
