292w ago - Movies based on video games may be God's punishment for an evil world, but there were plenty of excellent films that (surprisingly) gave us hours of gaming gold.
Today, we're bringing them all back in a list of The 25 Greatest Movie-Based Games EVER! Grab a bucket of popcorn, have a seat, and let's roll the film!
25. T2: The Arcade Game
"Come with me if you want to live."
There were plenty of games that spawned from the cinematic awesomeness of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, but the arcade version blew them all away. Once you put your quarter in the machine and took hold of the T2 gun, all Hell broke loose. Dropping you right in the middle of the post-Judgment Day war, hundreds of T-101s and Skynet machines stormed the screen, eager to terminate you. It was pure chaos. Without a pocketful of quarters, you'd survive for mere minutes, but it was still a fun ride.
24. Judge Dredd (SNES, Genesis)
"Throw down your weapons and prepare to be judged!"
I AM THE LAW!!
The SNES/Genesis Judge Dredd release was surprisingly faithful to the film. Not only were you gunning down every perp in the game, but you could also judge criminals "guilty" and teleport them to Mega City Jail. Plus, it was at least a thousand times better than the PlayStation version.
