Top 10 Video Games That Deserve An Anime

1. Kingdom Hearts


2. Legend of Zelda


3. Steins;Gate 0


4. Ib


5. Metal Gear Solid


6. Chrono Trigger


7. Final Fantasy X


8. Okami

    Final Fantasy has already had its shows/movies. It's time for the better Xenoblade Chronicles games to get adapted.

    That was VII, which has always been overrated, and would never have been as popular if it hadn't been the first 3D entry in the series. VI is and always has been the best of the series from a story and musical viewpoint.

    Seeing Locke rescue Celes for the first time, if they pull that off right... and... and Terra's story... dammit, the tears just wouldn't stop if they did it.

    Zelda, Chrono Trigger, and FFVI represent! I'll forgive the fact that they aren't 1-2-3 given that half the voters for the poll probably weren't alive when the two Square games first came out.

    Everyone, please watch the Youtube video titled "Parking Lot Kingdom Hearts" as to why Kingdom Hearts shouldn't be so high on this list.

    Actually there is an anime out for Chrono Trigger... well animated OVA that's just over 20 years old now. :) So yeah I agree it needs a good full 24-26 episodes + a few OVAs to do the story justice now.

    This might as well be a list of "What's you favorite video game".

    Metal Gear guys? Seriously?
    And final Fantasy 10?
    Can you imagine those being done in unstylized 2D animation?

    Okami could be one of those arthouse anime movies, stain's gate is already an anime, Kingdom hearts could be a Disney animation and Chrono trigger is an actual good choice but the other half of the stuff on the list can and will only look worse as an anime.

    Also, why isn't Guilty Gear there.

    Guilty Gear isn't there because the Xrd and Revelator story modes did a better job than any anime rendition could do.

    That and how the Blazblue anime turned out destroyed (pun intended) all interest.

    I don't think an Kingdom hearts anime will be an easy task at all. Since obviously Disney need to make it unless a different company wants to deal with copyrights, and I don't think Disney can meet our expectations like with many companies that make many anime.

    In all fairness, IF Kingdom Hearts can be given to the likes of Square Enix to create a GAME using their characters to their discretion, then why would it be that much harder for Square to adapt an anime?

    The real problem is with Disney, which gave a foreign company full reign to create a game however they liked. Their only end of the bargain is that Disney would get royalties when it came to dubbing the game... If you remember that was the problem when Kingdom Hearts 2 was released. Square Japan didn't wait for Disney to dub the game, and so released KH2 before their contracted time.

    Disney has been a little on edge ever since, which is why it's taken so long for KH3 to go into production. (Which Square boasted would be the final game of the franchise. LOL)

    You're actually wrong, first it was Disney themselves that forced SE to announce KH3, they didn't want to, they felt they wheren't ready yet and they had all their focus on FF Versus XIII and only wanted to start working on KH3 when that was over and done, but Disney said they had to do it then so they created a conceptual video and announced it.

    Second SE already said KH3 will NOT be the last game in the series, it would be the last game of the current story arc, the "Dark Seeker Saga", then the series would continue with a new story arc but always with Sora as main character.

    Also Disney owns the entirity of the KH IP, they always have and they always will, Sora, Heartless, and everything created for the game is owned exclusivly by Disney, only things SE owns are the FF and TWEWY characters, Disney can, and they've already done it before, use the IP on their own without any sort of input from SE.

    I dunno if KINGDOM HEARTS would be a good fit for anime, what with all the Disney content, though I suppose Disney did have that Japanese branch that did the grunt work for the 1980s/1990s afterschool syndicated TV cartoons like DUCK TALES, RESCUE RANGERS, and BONKERS. Or, more precisely, farmed out that grunt work to independent Japanese anime studios like TMS.

    LEGEND OF ZELDA is the all-time perennial top (or near top) choice on these lists but I have a feeling it would be one of those adaptations that people think they want that would be profoundly disappointing were it ever to be actually made. Yes, yes, "unless Hayao Miyazaki does it", but I think Miyazaki would have produced a ZELDA movie years ago if it had interested him at all.

    I still want a GUILTY GEAR anime. Or at least a Bridget anime.

    Someone just has to rip and update the models for Source Film Maker, there are a lot of out of work animators, myself included, that would take those models and wreck them, literally and metaphorically.

    Metal Gear Solid 3 Nake Eater alone would make an excellent 26 Episode Cold War Drama for those who love James Bond Films and dare I say, a Heartfelt Tearjerker.

    Then stop Big Boss' story right there because none of the rest of the prequels come close to matching the raw emotional power of "Snake Eater."

    Steins;Gate 0 has been announced that it's getting an anime just hasn't been announced when that is actually going to air. And White Fox has been busy lately. Though considering the game is now out in the US/EU, a year after it came out in Japan, I'm surprised it's taking so long. I guess Re:Zero took up a lot of their time this past year.

    Rightfully so. I will be patient for greatness. I don't are how long it takes to get sequels to good shows as long as they come. The upcoming Code Geass being something that made me smile from the depths of my heart that it's coming about, whatever it may be.

    For one thing: IF a Final Fantasy anime is to be adapted (VII, VIII, IX, X) hopefully it turns out better than "Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles" (adaptation of Final Fantasy V). Or better yet make sure that SQUARE has NO roll in the anime, otherwise you'll end up with things like "Final Fantasy: Unlimited" or even worse, "Star Ocean EX" (adaptation of Second Story which screams do-over)

    Sad thing is, Second story HAD the power to become a really well represented anime. At the time of EX, there were enough fans hollering at the tv screens wishing that the animation was given a higher budget, and there was a lot less goofy, and unfaithful elements that made people cringe to even hear the name "Star Ocean EX".

    Likewise, I think that Final Fantasy classics like VI, VII, VIII, IX, and X (only the first game) could make really exciting anime series, but it all depends on how kiddied down they made it, and how much effort they put into it.

    For the record there already WAS a 'Legend of Zelda' cartoon, so.... EXCUSE ME PRINCESS!!

    Game to anime adaptations rarely are impressive, but if they actually put some effort behind one for once, (perhaps the same level of effort put into Fate/Zero or Fate/Unlimited Blade Works (2015) maybe it'd actually be worth the conversation.
