I spend the majority of my days interacting with video games in some way whether that be playing them or watching playthroughs on YouTube. This always gets me thinking about the games that should have adaptations.
Every time I think about doing one of these posts I want to include games like Until Dawn and The Quarry but technically they’re already like films as they are mostly cinematic sequences. I may talk about them at some point as I’m thinking of a way to make these posts a little better as right now they are just me talking about how much I like the games.
God of War
This is a game I would constantly see everywhere but never paid it any attention. Until recently, when the new one came out and I decided to start watching a playthrough of the first one. I haven’t finished it yet because it’s really long, but I’m already obsessed and also surprised that an adaptation hasn’t been made yet.
A couple of years ago there were so many Norse-themed shows and films but for some reason, this wasn’t adapted. Personally, I think it would make an amazing film, potentially even a show.
The combat scenes are incredible and it’s packed full of so much lore there’s more than enough content for an adaptation. I feel like in a few years we will be seeing a God of War adaptation just please don’t cast someone like Dwayne Johnson or Vin Diesel as Kratos.
Game synopsis: Following the death of Kratos’ second wife, Faye (Atreus’ mother), the two embark on a journey to fulfil her request that her ashes be spread at the highest peak of the nine realms. Kratos keeps his troubled past a secret from Atreus, who is unaware of his divine nature.
