Yesterday we discussed several video games which deserved anime adaptations, but the reverse is equally appropriate.

Akira

Akira was the definitive anime experience for a generation, so making a modern video game might feel like sacrilege at best and challenging at worst. And I'd partially agree, if we're discussing the anime. The original manga, however, spends three volumes in a post-apocalyptic Neo Tokyo where multiple factions struggle to overthrow Tetsuo's seemingly unstoppable religious cult. That's potentially a fantastic setting for an open-world game where Kaneda navigates militant factions and his own changing friendship with Tetsuo, as opposed to the disappointing visual novel we actually got.
