What Games Have You Enjoyed That Are Also Movies? Massive Tribe Collab Competition!

in CineTVlast year


Hello everyone! Today I have a bumper prizelist for you. $100 in Prizes, and two exclusive NFTs to be won!

What games have you enjoyed that are also movies?

That's right, you read it, I'm going there. @flauwy has been kind enough to donate us $50 in 1up prize money for this contest, and I will be personally donating $50 in cine token for this one. But that's not all! @Stickupmusic has kindly offered up some of their NFTs on the cine platform for the lucky winners, and number #1 spot will win the first mint of one of our very exclusive NFTs

So, to clarify, that's $50 Cine, $50 1up, and 2 exclusive NFTs.

Here's a sample of the NFT that one lucky winner will win. First mint too.



Okay, so let's get to this later. I would like to write a post myself on this subject to show you the quality and standard we will be aiming for. Just to be clear, I used to do this for a living so I do not expect it to be better than mine, but to serve as a rough guideline of what we will be looking for.

Okay, so,

What games have I tried that are also movies?

World of Warcraft was my absolute favourite movie that was also a game. In fact, watching the trailer just now has made me realise how much of the film I've forgotten and I'd probably be willing to watch it again

However, this is not a game I have enjoyed, therefor -- the show must go on.

Most of the games I have played in the past that have turned into movies have been terrible. Take Mortal Kombat & Street Fighter. These were cult classic games that I grew up on, but their movies were extremely terrible, trash even.

I've been a big fan of the Tomb Raider franchise also, but even every one of these films have been forgettable at best, including the new one. There hasn't been the substance, nor storytelling as there has been in the games. The Tomb Raider franchises were great storylines. But their films were sadly lacking.

This leaves me to delve deeper and further into history than I would like to. Interestingly we have the CGI and the technology these days to make a mega-whopper of a blockbuster but no-one seems to want to take the risk like they used to anymore. There seems to be this formula for a mediocre film and everyone follows through with it.

I blame us as the consumers really. Buying up lazy cinema so the makers can fill their pockets on mediocrity.


My favourite has to be Discworld II, which was an adaptation of The colour of magic -- which was a book, but later a film. Okay, so perhaps I'm cheating a little here but I really liked it. I spent a lot of my teens trying to complete this game. I was magnetised to it because it was very funny, and alas, some humour which was a bit too old for me at the time.

I had a hard time trying to convince my friends to play these types of games because it only seemed as if I was the one interested in it. My Stepdad at the time got me playing Monkey Island by Lucas Arts and the rest as they say, is history!

The Colour of Magic was epic.

I absolutely can't think of any other startling films that were games. If there were, they were most probably epically terrible.

That being said I was a massive fan of Final Fantasy VII and the advent children movie they later brought out. Ariels death crushed me inside (yes, it really did), but then as I grew older I realised through experience an as I grew more mature that it was just another childrens theme.

On a side note I would also like to say that I enjoyed the witcher. Both series, and games. Most recently this has probably been the best movie content from a game I have seen in at least the last five years. But I digress.

So, not much to speak of. It might not be your experience, but my experience with films and games has been disappointing - so I am hoping that we are proved wrong!

Now for the rules.

So, to take part you must:

  • Use #cinetv and #oneup tags
  • Use the tag #CineUp
  • Your post must include a movie AND a game.
  • I will accept recorded posts from #3speak - but it must be narrative in nature.

That's it! Not hard is it? And the winners will be rewarded as follows:

  • Top Prize $25 Cine / $25 1Up + 2 Exclusive Cine NFTs
  • Second Place $15 Cine / $15 1Up + 1 Exclusive NFT
  • Third Place $10 Cine / $10 1Up

And that's it. Have fun creating those posts my friends. Keep them coming in! All good posts will be slapped with my cine curation account and my 1up curation agood @ 100%!


Awesome contest! be back soon hopefully with an entry!

Looking forward to it :)

I read the entry from @stickupboys and that's always what I think of, Resident Evil. Hmmm I'll need to think this one over.

Sounds like a fun contest and I'm liking what I see so far

I loved the Warcraft movie, it was really beautifully done. I was surprised how well it was made, actually. The Colors of Magic are something I enjoyed as well but had no idea that there was a game. I just knew the book from Pratchett.

My favourite has been warcraft so far. The bar needs to be raised now, though.

Yup, Discworld is a lot of fun to play

i never got into playing witcher (never got time and i know i would like it) and that would probably be game/movie pick. thought of one game while reading, will see if i get the time to do a decent post about it.

had no idea that there was a Discworld game. i need to check that out.

Did you watch Gaurds the Terry Prachet adaption out recently?

No! Haven't! That'll be my next watch :)

It is like a steampunk adaptation but it is quite good

Can we do multiple posts or is it one per user :)

You can submit only one - but you can do a few if you like :)

ok thinking when i leave work of doing a film review for every marvel heros movie in order lol :)

During lockdown we wacthed them all in order.....was great! !PIZZA

Alright, have fun :)

What about books that should be movies?

The Star Wars force unleashed title was a good book and game if that’s your cup of tea but alas so far StarKiller has avoided the big screen.

No, just games. But perhaps books will be the next quiz :)

Lol. Maybe I’ll think of something else.

Let's make it happen!

I'm IN!

Hmmm.. I thought Mortal Kombat was a classic

This one really got me thinking, reflecting back on the oh-so-many game movies I've seen... and how absolutely terrible most of them were. HAHA!

Anyway, I wrote an entry :-)


What an awesome prompt. This sounds perfect for me! I already have a topic in mind, too. It's an oldie (not too old, still relevant) but goodie! I can't wait!
Btw I saw part of Warcraft (wish I had seen the rest) and it kinda made me want to play the game.

I like this idea! I have always dreamt of a big budget live action movie of Halo or Gears of war.
Maybe one day.

Great contest and I hope there are awesome entries too.

I will participate for sure (if I don't forget to 😅), hope I am not too late.

I loved the Tomb Raider franchise as well but the newest movie disappointed me too. The reason was not the Lara Croft actress Alicia Vikander - a lot of people criticized her but I think she did a decent job. But the story of the movie was not really thrilling. The first 20 minutes were fine but it got worse and worse. I hope there will be a (good) new part in the future though 😅

Here's my entry: https://www.1up.zone/@btcsam/why-the-tomb-raider-movies-weren-t-as-good-as-the-games

I put a lot of effort into this post, I hope it's a good read 😊
