The gaming industry has historically utilized many different genres to develop its most popular ever games.

Music, television and comic books are amongst the most common themes, with each sector opening the door for game developers to create hundreds of different titles.

However, science fiction movies have perhaps had the biggest impact on gaming, with many of the most famous films used to create hugely popular games.

Read on as we look at how Sci-Fi movies have impacted the gaming industry.

Sci-Fi movies light up online casinos

Online casinos have boomed in popularity in recent years, with advancements in technology creating a wealth of possibilities for game developers.

One major area where Sci-Fi movies have had a major impact is in the online slots games sector, with many of the most popular online slots titles based around the genre.

For instance, Microgaming used Terminator 2 to develop one of the best Sci-Fi-based slots in the gaming industry.

Based on the 1991 film, the game features stunning graphics, innovative animations and many of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s famous one-liners from the film.

Another classic Sci-Fi movie from yesteryear, Aliens, has also been successfully converted into a slots game by NetEnt.

It successfully combines an arcade game with an online slot, offering players a scary gameplay experience that mirrors the original film.

Video games and Sci-Fi movies a perfect combination

Much like online casinos, the video game industry has enjoyed great success when it has used Sci-Fi movies as the basis for new titles.

Most of the top films have seen light of day as a video game, but the standout title simply has to be Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.

While many previous attempts to develop a Stars Wars game failed to hit the spot, the KOTOR series has regularly received positive feedbacks from fans and critics alike.

First released in 2003, the original KOTOR game won numerous awards and its numerous sequels have been equally well-received.

The original version takes players back to 4,000 years prior to the Star Wars films in a classic tale of good versus evil.

KOTOR’s main strength lay in it taking familiar Star Wars elements and blending them with a new story to create the perfect role-playing game.
