Welcome to another episode from Middle Aged Gaming. Today’s topic is ‘video games which have spawned movies’. Adam, Antoine and Phil watch the trailers to a mixture of well known and obscure movie titles, whilst comparing them to their original video game. Have there been any movies which our hosts can agree have captured the audience (or the authenticity of the game)? More importantly, how much money did these films lose? We pay special homage to the infamous Uwe Boll who has directed and committed numerous atrocities in the pursuit of movie success.

In this podcast the audio from all movie trailers has been removed for listener ease; however, should you wish to watch the videos alongside our commentary you can find the unedited episode on our YouTube channel: Middle Aged Gaming.

Street Fighter (1994)
