Movie games that should exist in the real world
We can do a lot through video games. Fly, time travel, get married, kill dragons, kill vampires, kill many other things. We currently live in a time where incredibly immersive nuanced games are released weekly, if not daily. We are lucky! And we should be grateful.
However, there is still a part of us that wants more. We see the possibilities when we watch fictional games. Things can always be more; more immersive, more exciting and more realistic. While you’re probably happy with the amazing technology available to us today, these entries may have you yearning for what could be.
8 Infinity – Black Mirror
This one is for the Trekkies out there. Despite the almost heartbreaking premise of this episode of Black Mirror (please don’t digitally clone your colleagues), it’s hard to admit that we all wouldn’t love to take control of our own spaceship, crew, and adventure. a la Star Trek. cosmos.
Plus, who can beat a full console-less immersive gaming system? I mean yes, you’ll probably never leave your house again, but you can use all your senses to hunt aliens! Whether you’re a Star Trek fan or not, this game would be fun for anyone who loves science fiction.
7 real american – new girl
This one is for ages 21 and up! Everyone has seen or heard of the seemingly no-rules drinking game that is New Girl’s True American. Who doesn’t want to drink a little booze while building a beer can fort in their apartment? Even the second part alone seems fun.
That being said, many people online have tried to set the rules of the game, some more successfully than others. However, even these ambitious students on the show admit, you can’t quite play like they do on the show. You can get a little close, but since we never know all the rules (and can’t edit the arduous bits for TV), you’ll never play the true, tried-and-true American that Jessica Day likes to play with her housemates.
6 You are dead – Monster House
Here’s where we get a bit of retro. Arguably, the most iconic character in the masterpiece that is Monster House is Skull. He is like us, he is a real gamer. And the game he’s frankly playing looks great. Although it lacks the Triple-A graphics and narrative of today, the game is a good old-fashioned hack and slash with pixel graphics. Sometimes it’s better to go back to basics.
It should be noted that there is a minigame version of Thou Art Dead in the licensed game, however, it’s not a full game, and of course not in a real arcade, so you don’t really get the real feeling.
5 Game Over – Spy Kids 3
Let’s get a little nostalgic with this one. As a kid, nothing seemed more fun to us than getting your custom robotic armor and trying to reach level five in Spy Kid 3’s Game Over.
Again, all of this is only possible if you ignore nefarious game design reasons, and is only really fun if your older sister isn’t kidnapped (sorry Juni). With very realistic AI, bike racing, and giant robot duels, you’d think anyone would want to play this game if it were real.
4 Jumanji – Jumanji
This one is tough, because, of course, it’s the most dangerous on the list. And that’s why he’s on the list. The temptation. In all three films, players face perilous danger, both in the real world and in the game world, but perhaps that’s what makes it so desirable.
This is for thrill seekers! Those who truly seek to test themselves against deadly forces! Also, with the new adaptations, the extra skills you get and a whole new body are a bonus for sure. Start the game and automatically be super strong and know how to fly a jet? Yes please.
3 OASIS – Ready Player One
What is so desirable with OASIS is the ability for you to have your own life and forge your own path. While other games on this list involve full immersion like OASIS, they are more restrictive when it comes to genre or game type.
In OASIS, you can live the life you want, regardless of gender. You can race and battle, or you can just hang out and enjoy the digital nature. You can learn and meet friends – a whole new world is at your fingertips.
2 Sword Art Online – Sword Art Online
You can see that high immersion games are quite essential on this list. However, they are all unique and have their own reasons for being on the list. For Sword Art Online, it’s the world. There’s lore, there’s drama, there’s internal politics (sort of).
Of course you would never want to get stuck in a game where you could die in real life, for those who want to live out their side quest fantasies this one would be absolutely necessary if it was real.
1 Quidditch-Harry Potter
This one’s for all the athletes (and Potterheads). And before we get started, yes we know there’s an adult version of Quidditch that’s the baby monster of football, field hockey and long-distance running, but that’s not what we’re talking about. let’s talk. We are talking about brooms. Flying broomsticks, magic balls, super cool (although perhaps impractical) woolen robes as uniforms.
Who hasn’t watched Harry Potter and wondered if he would be a Keeper, Beater or Seeker? Even the most sedentary of us would get moving if given the chance to fly around on a broomstick beating our teammates for a glorious chance at victory!
