more and more films are made from video games concept for example most recent one was Prince of Persia (it was a game before it was made into a film)
and one of the first every video game based film to be released was Super Mario Bros. (not everyone know this)

I can’t come up with links, but some movie proof to look into would be “The Matrix” series. The special effects are not all that was borrowed from popular video games. The idea of living in a computer program where your avatar is more gifted than the norm. The ability to call on weapons and other “cheats” to help you when you need. The entire plot of the first movie is basically living in and beating a video game. And of course the special effects like “bullet time’ were borrowed from popular games like “Max Payne”. Hope that helps a little.
