Many of us really love our current TV shows, even more than movies, and sometimes we wish to continue the experience somewhere else, like a video game. Unfortunately, some of us can't, with only certain TV shows actually getting a video game adaptation, like 24, Game of Thrones and even The Walking Dead. Today we’ll be exploring nine TV shows that don't have a video game and imagining them as that. So, let's begin!
1. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. = Bully/Saints Row 2
Bully is a game like its big brother Grand Theft Auto. Instead of making you a criminal in a massive open world, in Bully you are limited to the school you are in and the streets surrounding it. An Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. game could borrow from this idea and put the player within the S.H.I.E.L.D. academy or Helicarrier, where he or she would have to do missions and side-missions to complete certain objectives. Additionally, the game could borrow the open-world mechanics of Saints Row 2, as well as its character customization system.
2. Quantico = Splinter Cell
A great game to imagine Quantico as would be the latest installment of Splinter Cell. The game could put you in the shoes of Alex Parrish where you’d have to complete certain training exercises at the Quantico base. Those exercises would later help in the actual game missions, much like in the TV show. Instead of being a carbon copy of the show though, the game wouldn’t recreate the scenarios of the episodes, but rather could take place after season one. As you complete missions there could be a system where you’d rank up and eventually become the director of the FBI. You would then be able to manage your team of agents, telling them where to go and what to do.
3. Netflix’s Daredevil = Batman Arkham Series
Daredevil is one of the best streaming series on Netflix right now and if it was made into a video game, the Batman Arkham series is a fantastic reference. The game would take place in Hell’s Kitchen and much like the Arkham series, you would have control over Daredevil, being able to do many of the things Batman does in his game. The game could also have appearances from the other Netflix shows' lead heroes, like Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.
4. Netflix's Marco Polo = Red Dead Redemption/Dynasty Warriors
A game based on Marco Polo could have the open-world feel of Red Dead Redemption, while having gameplay mechanics like the Dynasty Warriors game series. The game would take place in Mongolia, China and the rest of the Mongol Empire. It could expand on Marco Polo’s time with Kublai Khan, as well as portray the other stories of adventures from Marco Polo’s Travels.
5. Supernatural = Devil May Cry/Uncharted
A Supernatural game would have to be fast-paced and full of action like in the Devil May Cry game series. It could incorporate similar mechanics from the Uncharted game series as well. Apart from fighting demons, vampires and every other evil entity Supernatural has to offer, the game could also put you on their side of the story. Supernatural is already on its 11th season so a lot can be done and applied in a Supernatural game.
6. The 100 = Grand Theft Auto/Assassin’s Creed 3
A The 100 game would definitely have to be open-world. Like GTA, it would put the player in a massive map where you’d be able to free roam and basically do whatever you want. The game could have gameplay mechanics like Assassin’s Creed 3 as well as its environment. It could be rated T or M, but it would be more fun if it was rated M for sure.
7. CW’s Arrowverse = Marvel Ultimate Alliance/Grand Theft Auto V
A game where you can play as the Flash, Green Arrow, Supergirl and the Legends of Tomorrow could be like Marvel Ultimate Alliance. Not in the gameplay aspect but rather in its wide availability of characters and amazing story missions. An Arrowverse game could have similar mechanics as GTA V, where you could switch from character to character instantaneously without affecting the flow of the game.
8. Mr. Robot = Watch Dogs/Uncharted
Watch Dogs has a similar core story as Mr.Robot. The government and huge corporations are taking people’s privacy and money, so hackers become vigilantes. A Mr. Robot game could take some of the aspects from Watch Dogs, but instead of being an open-world game, it could be something like Uncharted.
9. Black Sails = Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag/Far Cry 3
A perfect game to imagine Black Sails as is definitely Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Like Black Flag, Black Sails would feature heavy use of ship maneuvering and a massive open-world map of the sea. There could be two land maps: Nassau, Bahamas and London, England. Unlike Black Flag, instead of having a parkour-style gameplay, the game could be like Far Cry 3, with an option to switch between third-person and first-person view.
