Keengamer Podcast 144 | IPs That Sould Be Video Games

Movies based on video games have been in a bit of a golden age over the last decade. The successes of the Sonic movies, Detective Pikachu, and especially the Super Mario Bros. Movie show that the world of gaming is ready for the big screen. But what about the other way around? Which shows, books, and other non-gaming franchises are ready to make their debut in gaming? In this episode, Alex and Devon discuss which franchises should take their chances, and what such a video game should look like.
