What are the best games that deserve their own shows like The Witcher on Netflix?

Video games and television don't always jive smoothly. It's not often that we feast our eyes on TV show adaptations of top-selling video games. Although there have been numerous titles that have made a good transition from the consoles to the small screens, most of them have come out as animations. However, with the recent rise of Netflix's The Witcher in the mainstream, there has been a long overdue awareness about the potential of video games for television content. Of course, The Witcher had good gameplay and engaging characters, but who would have imagined seeing Henry Cavill sport that long golden hair? Nonetheless, long-time gamers finally had the chance to relive a good game via a binge-watchable experience.

As a result of The Witcher's dominance of the online streaming game, we might have witnessed the beginning of a content revolution. This does not only apply for Netlfix but for other top streaming services as well. The inspiration that certain video games create for a great TV story is not to be counted out. With top-notch graphics, great-looking characters, iconic weapons, and overall marketability, games seem to be the perfect fit for television. In the near future, even post-Witcher, we might witness more video game TV shows created. While not all video games should be adapted into the small screen via real actors, we can definitely think of some titles that should make the cut if ever the need arises. Check out this list for some of the best video games that should get TV adaptations just like The Witcher.

    "Another Lara Croft screen project? Sure!!! Alicia Vikander should do this as a TV adaptation for real. This could be just as big as The Witcher but it needs good story from Netflix"
