Are Movie-Based Video Games Cursed? Come to think of it, aside from a series of platform games based on Disney animated features and a series of slot machines at the Red Flush Casino, there’s no video game based on a movie that we could say it’s truly successful. Even the slots at the Red Flush are only seen by a limited audience – slot machine fans that is. At least they appreciate these games – the movie-based slots you can play at the Red Flush are constantly among the most popular ones there.

Although video game developers have over a century of movies to get inspired by, and game engines that ensure a realistic and immersive way to play, no movie-based video games have ever made it to the gaming world’s halls of fame. And we can’t expect any of them to be among the 5 video games to look out for in 2017. Are movie-inspired video games cursed to be unsuccessful?

Battlestar Galactica: All Quiet on the Cylon Front

Battlestar Galactica

Battlestar Galactica

Glen A. Larson was a legendary producer. During his golden years, he gave us classics like The Six Million Dollar Man, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, Knight Rider, and, of course, the immortal tale of the last remnants of the 12 Colonies running for their lives across the Galaxy, Battlestar Galactica. Much like Star Trek (the original), the first Battlestar Galactica series had a controversial start. Although it won the “Best New TV Drama Series” award at the 1979 People’s Choice Awards, the series only ran for 17 episodes – to the great disappointment of the fans. In 1980, the Colonial flagship returned to the screen, yet in a different format – with the fleet arriving at Earth, the Colonial forces needed to stop the Cylons from taking over. This time, the series only lasted for ten episodes. This didn’t stop the series from achieving cult status, yet it resisted any attempt of revival until 2003.
