In terms of fanbases, anime and video games are two worlds that often collide. And should that come as a surprise to many? The thrills that we find in anime are often brought over to the video game world, delivering the high-impact visuals, emotionally-rich storylines, and awe-inspiring fight scenes that we've come to expect from both mediums. However, what happens when these worlds begin to blur into one another even more? Specifically, what happens when an anime series is adapted into a video game? Are the results often good? Are they bad?
As we've seen in the past with games like Dragon Ball Z: Legendary Super Warrior or Akira, sometimes there is too much lost in translation for the anime's strengths to come through. But, other times, we'll be lucky enough to play a fighting game like JoJo's Bizarre Adventure or Bleach: Dark Souls, and our faith in these adaptations is renewed. With the recently released, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, yet another anime video game is being delivered to the masses, so we decided that it was time to take a look at The Best and Worst Titles in Anime Gaming. Which side will Battle of Z join? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
