For some reason, movies based on video games have a tendency to be very lacking, be it poor acting or a rushed story. However, when companies take the same concept and adapt an anime based on a game or franchise, the results can be marvelous. Perhaps one of the main reasons is because of the format; a four to eight hour series can divulge on details that a two hour movie might have to omit. Here are three recent anime series based on video games that have been critically successful as well as faithful to their source material. These series can be watched freely on Hulu in the United States.
