Movies And TV Shows That Have Inspired Great Games

'Hitman,' 'Jurassic Park,' 'Game of Thrones' and 'Family Guy' Are Cited

The different facets that all make up the behemoth that is the entertainment industry go hand in hand in many respects. Movies, TV shows and games are often the source of inspiration for each other, with many movies and TV shows being influential when it comes to creating the latter. With so many great games developed as a result of movies and TV shows, we’ve picked out some of the more memorable. Gomovies, the free streaming website, is your destination for both classic and newly released movies.


“Hitman” is a very interesting franchise when you consider that the very successful “Hitman” games inspired great movies, which then in turn inspired more games. In effect, “Hitman” tells a story which revolves around a cloned hitman known as Agent 47. Due to his flawless record, it sees him in great demand, especially by the wealthy. From escaping the asylum where he had been the subject of many experiments, the franchise tells the story of what happened next and beyond. The “Hitman” games, which can be played on a range of devices, have perhaps been more successful than the movies, with the franchise also spawning a fantastic themed slot developed by Microgaming.

“Jurassic Park”

“Jurassic Park” is without doubt one of the most successful franchises of all time. From hit movies to games, and everything in between, “Jurassic Park” has been the source of inspiration for all manner of great things, with even novels and theme park attractions being developed as a result. From the original plot of a group of people being invited to tour a theme park which is inhabited by dinosaurs, which then break free and wreak havoc, “Jurassic Park” has gone on to release further films and games, all of which have everyone hooked. Furthermore, “Jurassic Park” is another successful slot game created by Microgaming which can be enjoyed at any one of their casino partners like RoyalVegas.

“Game of Thrones”

“Game of Thrones” has just finished its final run on TV, with the 8th season coming to an end, and most viewers will suggest it will go down in history as one of the greatest TV shows of all time. With 73 impressive episodes under its belt, and the show and its multitude of great actors and actresses winning various accolades over the years, it’s easy to forget that GoT has had an impact in other areas of entertainment too. From the original novels, through to podcasts, GoT has excelled, and there’s been some great games too. From video games which can be enjoyed on console and PC, to slots, mobile, handheld and even in-browser and social media-based games, “Game of Thrones” managed to hit the heights in every area it entered.

“Family Guy”

“Family Guy” as an animated sitcom is right up there with other hit shows such as “The Simpsons.” With a hugely impressive 17 seasons under its belt so far, Seth MacFarlane’s creation has managed to surpass all expectations, with The Griffins now a household name around the world. With millions heavily invested in the show and its characters, it’s easy to see how “Family Guy” has become a hit elsewhere in the entertainment industry too. There have of course been some fantastic games, especially for mobile, while there’s also been slots and books created as a result.
