Are video games based on movies worth a Steam Key search?

StarTrek - Steam Key Search

Not a package

Video games and movies are arguably the two leaders in the entertainment industry, with the former inducing a frantic Steam key search whenever a hotly anticipated game is released. Similarly, blockbuster movies sometimes require people to fall in line for a ticket well after midnight to ensure that they get first screenings. Both industries are both financially and critically successful, making superstars out of video game developers and actors/actresses, respectively.

Despite their parallel successes, the two industries can't seem to go along with each other. Blockbuster movies like the Harry Potter series -- which are also adapted from books -- and the Pirates of the Caribbean series have their own line of video games that attempt to milk more money from loyal fans. They are not downright awful, but they are clearly made for advertising purposes rather than gaming, with only the most devoted fans handing out money for them. Most gamers can agree that the greatest video game based on a movie was GoldenEye 007 for the Nintendo 64, a game which still has its influences apparent in today's games that now require a Steam key search in order to play.

On the flip side, movies that were primarily based on video games were utter failures, mildly speaking. Ever heard of the movie Tekken? No? How about Dead or Alive and Hitman? Well, you can be forgiven if your memory isn't registering any of those. And, yes, they actually existed. Just like with video games based on movies; these forgettable movies are more likely known to only the most avid gamers. The most notable of these are the movie adaptations of the Resident Evil series, which has spawned a franchise of its own.

A direct adaptation of each other will probably never turn out to be memorable, so let's all cross our fingers that the upcoming Warcraft and Assassin's Creed movies will at least do justice.

The exceptions for a Steam key search

There are some games, however, that were only loosely based on movies, or the movie's lore and mythologies. These games are the more likely to succeed both commercially and critically. A more out-there example would be the Kingdom Hearts series of action role-playing games which feature characters, and some story, from Disney animated classics like The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast. The creative and seamless integration of favorite cartoon characters into an original game has catapulted the series into unprecedented heights, with a third major installment currently under development that will immediately warrant a Steam key search upon release.

The two currently more popular game titles that were based on a movie's lore are Star Wars Battlefront and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. The former is a multiplayer action game that features locations and characters from the Star Wars franchise, while the latter is an action role-playing game that is set within J.R.R. Tolkien's world -- between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor's lore, of course, comes from the books. But the aesthetics are based on director Peter Jackson's visual take.

Both games are equally successful, proving video games that are based on movies, at least not on every aspect, can be memorable and worth a Steam key search on the most efficient game key comparison sites around.
