4) Bram Stoker's Dracula
Yes, of course there was a video game adaptation of Francis Ford Coppola’s adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Why? Because 1990s, that’s why! In fact, there were several video games made out of the movie in several genres, including for the Nintendo Entertainment System, Gameboy, Super Nintendo, Genesis, Sega CD, Amiga, and PC.
Despite the movie version primarily being about the interplay between Gary Oldman’s titular vampire and Mina Harker (Winona Ryder), the game versions – be they side-scrollers or first-person shooters – always centered on Jonathan Harker (Reeves’ character from the film) as he fights assorted dragons, vampires, and zombies in a quest to defeat Dracula. The sidescrolling version was essentially a Castlevania knockoff, which is actually a pretty good model to follow if you’re making a vampire-based video game. Did Harker’s game sprite in any way resemble Keanu Reeves? Nope, not really. But these were official movie tie-in games released the same year as the film, so Jonathan Harker is canonically played by Reeves no matter the medium. We should just all be thankful that Keanu’s infamously terrible English accent did not translate to the video game versions of the movie.
