The Resident Evil movies are abominations. Nothing like the games at all and the stories inconsistant plot hole filled trash.


The first Tomb Raider movie is probably the best game-film adaptation, though probably because it had the advantage that most Tomb Raider games each have their own story and so did the film, where-as most other game-movie adaptations tried to recreate the story of the games in some way.

Yet, today, America's leaders are reenacting every folly that brought these great powers [Russia, Germany, and Japan] to ruin -- from arrogance and hubris, to assertions of global hegemony, to imperial overstretch, to trumpeting new 'crusades,' to handing out war guarantees to regions and countries where Americans have never fought before. We are piling up the kind of commitments that produced the greatest disasters of the twentieth century.

The OP is really weirdly worded. If you mean the best video game-based movie then it's definitely the first Mortal Kombat, because it captures the spirit of the game well and is actually pretty good (please note: FIRST MOVIE ONLY).

If you mean the best game series that has gotten a movie (which the thread title actually sounds like), then I'd say Mario Bros. followed by Resident Evil.

yeah, and you are the only one to notice that the topic was poorly written.

You pretty much win with Mario Bros, because that is the best game franchise that was made into a movie (out of the choices in the poll, it's RE).

If the topic is supposed to mean the best movie based on a game, then it's clearly Mortal Kombat, so you are right there as well.
