Observing that the premiere of The Last of Us is coming, we review some science fiction video games that could have an adaptation
Sci-fi video game adaptations that should arrive
As long as there’s a good story, can make a good movie. This is something that you can constantly replicate with any work that is not originally from the cinema in order to be able to be adapted, since, currently, it is usually what most engages the general public. We don’t have to go very far to be able to see that every two by three we have an announcement of a new adaptation from a video game to a series or movie, if not tell Horizon Zero Dawn.
As in other entertainment media, The video game industry has a wide variety of genres among their titles. For this month of January 2023 we will be able to enjoy the HBO Max series that adapts the story of The Last of Us, but today we do not want to focus on this title, but rather in some video games that have already arrived and that they could have, themselves, their own adaptation. They all belong to the science fiction genre and we are going to leave you the stories they tell so you can think if they are interesting or not.
Synopsis: We wake up in a glass room with seemingly no exit, containing a radio, a futuristic toilet, a small table, and what appears to be a chamber for suspended animation. A robotic female voice welcomes us back to the Aperture Science Computer Development Center.
A portal opens and then we can leave the so-called relaxation chamber. Afterwards, certain logic challenges will be posed to us. Immediately our benevolent robotic guide tells us that the tests are starting to get more difficult since energy balls will get in our way. During the course of the tests, the artificial intelligence makes jokes and promises us a cash payment and a cake.
Synopsis: A gigantic mining starship loses communication with Earth after coming into contact with a strange artifact on a distant planet. Engineer Isaac Clarke sets sail to repair it and discovers a horrific bloodbath: the starship’s crew cruelly slaughtered and infected by an evil alien presence. From this moment on, Isaac finds himself isolated, trapped, and in a desperate fight for survival.
Synopsis: Half-Life follows the adventures of Gordon Freeman, a theoretical scientist at the Anomalous Materials Laboratory at the Black Mesa Research Center, a massive, top-secret underground scientific complex set up on a disused military base in the New Mexico desert.
Synopsis: Mass Effect is set in the year 2183. Thirty-five years earlier, humanity discovered a cache of technology built by a technologically advanced but extinct civilization. This race was called Protheans. Thanks to the study and adaptation of this technology, Humanity has managed to leave the Solar System and establish numerous colonies, in addition to finding several extraterrestrial species, all this in the Milky Way. The use of Prothean technology tools, known as Mass Relays, has allowed the various species to travel instantaneously across vast stretches of the Galaxy.
Synopsis: An event known as “Death Stranding” merged the world of the living and the world of the dead. This merger caused three things. The first is the Stranded Entities, souls of the dead trapped in the world of the living who try to drag humans into the afterlife. The second is El Declieve, a rain that accelerates the passage of time of everything it touches. This meteorological event is due to the high density of chiralium in the atmosphere, and it is not known exactly why it affects matter in such a way, but it is believed that it is produced by the great connection with La Playa that the areas with Decline have.
The third and last thing that appeared after Death Stranding is the Voids, antimatter explosions that happen when a Stranded Entity consumes a human, causing the person’s matter and the EV’s antimatter to interact, thus producing the Voids. Sam Porter Bridges, a carrier, must cross the United States from east to west to reconnect the country with the Chiral Network, a network that uses the energy of the Beaches to send large amounts of information instantly, and thus be able to avoid the extinction of the humanity.
