What games deserve the anime treatment?

Video games and anime often go hand-in-hand. Many Japanese-developed games have a style and sensibilities about them that is very close to what anime offers. Character designs, story arcs and even just visuals in general can give off a very anime vibe. I think it might have been my love of games that lead me to a similar love of anime.

Just as I said a couple days ago, there have been a few anime adaptations based on games over the years. There's also been the flip side of the coin, where there are games that are based of anime. Obviously, games based off of anime come around a lot more, and are a common occurrence in the industry.

With that said, I feel there are some games out there that really deserve a chance to be turned into an anime. There's just a special something about certain games that leads me to believe an anime spin-off or single tale would work wonders for the series, and would be greatly appreciated by fans of the game franchise.

Personally, I'd love to see a StarFox anime. I think the characters really lend themselves well to a fun, yet engaging anime series. Perhaps it might be better as a light-hearted anime series that might appear on afternoon cartoons here in the states, but I'd take whatever I could get!

What game series' do you believe deserve an anime treatment? Leave a comment or send a tweet and let us know!


  1. Well, for me, I would like to see Ar Tonelico 1-3 anime series :P

  2. I haven't played No More Heroes before, but it seems like the type that would be suited for it.
