16 Video Game Movies We Were Denied
Video game movies are notoriously horrible — but sometime, somewhen, there will be a good one. Sonic the Hedgehog is arguably that hero, but there were so many contenders before that are now lost to history. These films all could have been the Iron Man-esque breakthrough video game movies needed to become cool, hip, mainstream, award-winning, and most importantly incredibly profitable to the people making them to the degree that the games themselves would wrap themselves around their own portrayal in the film, becoming a mirror reflecting itself eternally. Unfortunately for us, these game movies were never made, but we can look back on what was and what could have been, and dream of a world in which Jim Carrey playing Eggman is not the best video game movies can ever get. It is pretty good, though, to be fair.
Here are some video game movies that almost were made. Hope you enjoy the trip through the bargain bin of a parallel world, kids.
