It's not for lack of trying. Plenty of talented, passionate people have tried adapting video games into films, but fonot you r some reason or another they almost always end up subpar. It doesn't help that many games on this list aren't exactly easy to adapt. Super Mario Bros. may have a premise, but it doesn't really have a plot, at least it didn't way back in 1993.
Here are the most notable video game adaptations we've had, including some that flew under the radar. Almost all of them had a rough time at the box office and in critic's circles. Don't get your hopes up.
