I’ve always liked skyward sword. At the time I first beat it I thought it was one of the best in the series. Personally, I found it weird how opinions started to shift the other way

They used to make videogames based on movies, now they make movies based on videogames. This is saying something.

Weren't they always doing both though? Especially stuff that releases around the same time.

Yeah, this isn't some weird change. It's just selective memory.

Yeah, Super Mario Bros. is the oldest US video game to movie that I can think of, since it was 1993. Double Dragon and Street Fighter were 1994, Mortal Kombat was 1995.

The only movies I remember based on videogames were Mortal Kombat, Mario Bros, Tomb Raider, Double Dragon, and Street Fighter but the games based on movies were a lot. Now its flipped over, I do not see much games based on the movie but there is a lot of tv/film based on videogames like:

    Resident Evil
    Prince of Persia
    Max Payne
    Doom
    Assassin Creed
    Warcraft
    Witcher
    Monster Hunter
    Rampage
    Sonic
    The Angry Birds movie


and things seem to be pushing more towards that direction
