    What video game would you like to see turned into an anime series?

    I was talking with someone about Zelda being an anime series and you know what? I think it would be an amazing series! Just from the basis of the story and the diverse races and cultures, it would be really cool to see it into a fully evolved anime series. Then I was thinking of other video games as well.

    Figured I would ask the question here then...

    Ive always thought that a Zelda series with a darker tone (something in the tune of Berserk-lite) would be awesome -- and not entirely out of character, at least when considering the subject matter of the original games.

    IMO, a Starcraft anime based on the original Brood War scenario would be cool as hell, especially if they got good voice talent for it. Kind of surprised something like that (e.g. Blizzard anime) hasn't happened already. Resident Evil would translate perfectly to anime as well.

    I want to see a Contra anime that embraces the batshit nature of the games. They should do what they did with Contra Rebirth on the Wii where the story consists of elements of the main games in the series. Like, you'd have Bill Rizer and Lance Bean as the leads and you can throw in other characters from the games like Fang (The cyborg werewolf with a fucking minigun for an arm). Basically each episode would just ratchet the insanity with action scenes more crazy and absurd than the last. Have Akira Yamaoka going full metal mode on the soundtrack and you'd have a hell of a time.



    I think it'd be fun to see a Golden Axe anime. It'd be nice to get a more Robert E. Howard style sword and sorcery type anime over the more JRPG-ish fantasy animes that we get nowadays. I think Dark Souls could work as an anime though I think you'd have to rework the story to fit an episodic anime series.

    Possibly my favourite game franchise during most of my adolescence and what I'm playing through (feels like it's been ages) at the moment is: Halo! And how great an anime would be. Oh wait...

    They blew it. A faithful anime retelling of the first game could have been so amazing. But nope! Crap episodic Animatrix wannabe. Disappointing indeed.

    Also, they did a Zelda anime.



    Found the opening music...

    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    Legend of Dragoon, Final Fantasy Tactics, or perhaps EverGrace just to piss off normies.

    Nah, if you wanted to piss off normies, you'd do an anime based off the Rance franchise.

    There's already technically an anime based off of Tales of Vesperia, but that was just a 1 hour film, and it focused only on Yuri and Flynn in the guards.
    It was great even if Raven's voice actor in the film didn't even TRY to match the games but I would love to see the whole game done in an anime. Maybe have the characters die to Guttuso a few times to make it even more realistic

    Wait...
    Zelda Anime, you say?
    You're gonna mention the CD I games, but not THIS gem of 90s cheese, Mantis? I know you're a British, but still...https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=i_6gccuhhfY

    I know about that Zelda cartoon. But nothing beats the authentic anime quality of the CD-i games. Fact. Even Donkey Kong Country got a genuinely good anime!



    For real, say what you will but when I was a kid I loved this show.
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."

    Oh good God...

    I didn't know they even made that. I kind of wish I didn't know about it know. I just did a little search on it and read a bit about it, yikes. I mean that could have easily been such a cool series too. I would have watched it and I was not even that much into Halo. I just liked playing the games for the style. The storylines were always solid but I was never a diehard fan or anything. What a disappointment.

    Sometimes I wonder what goes through the head of people tasked with converting a game, book, etc. into a new medium. I mean, with something like Halo, why not just make a short anime series that follows the first game beat-for-beat, and then add more to the story if it becomes a success? How can you go wrong with giving a fan base exactly what it wants? Nowadays, it seems like every time they try changing an established formula, it just never pans out. There's always some airhead creative director who needs to inject personal desires into the scenario and everything gets screwed up.
