3 series Netflix Featured Ecran Partage

We can find on Netflix a lot of content that is inspired by video game franchises. You can read here our list of 3 Netflix series recommended for adults. We decided to distinguish between content recommended for adults and content recommended for children to help you make a choice during your Netflix sessions.

Here you will find the list of 5 Netflix movies/series for kids to understand video games.

It’s a shame that the warnings related to adult content are quite subtle. A brief message appears for one or two seconds in one of the corners of the screen, and that’s it. You have to be careful when selecting a security.

Arcane: League of Legends

Arcane features characters from the well-known league of Legends game. The series revolves around the characters of Jinx and Vi, but there are also other characters from the game like Ekko, Caitlyn and Heimerdinger, to name a few. Jinx and Vi find themselves in a conflict between Piltover, the city of progress, and Zaun, the underground city. The balance between Zaun and Piltover has long been fragile, but it is even more so as a result of new technological discoveries. Vi and Powder venture into Piltover in order to build a better future.

This 3D animated series will certainly appeal to those who have been playing League of Legends for a long time, since they will find their favorite characters there. However, those who are not fans of the game will enjoy it just as much. It is not necessary to have played the game in order to understand the story.

⚠️Attention⚠️

1 season (a 2nd is under development), episodes of 40-45 minutes, available in French and English.

The Witcher

The Witcher franchise is known for its video games, including The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt. Nevertheless, the series is based on the novels of author Andrzej Sapkowski. The series follows Geralt the Witcher, Princess Ciri and Magician Yennefer, who are all bound by fate for obscure reasons. They will pool their strength to save the world.

It is difficult to say more without giving spoilers. We do, however, guarantee a viewing experience filled with magical creatures, combat, and unexpected twists.

The Witcher franchise (video games, Netflix series and novels) is aimed at an adult audience.

2 seasons (a 3rd is under development), episodes of about 45 to 60 minutes. Available in French and English.

Castlevania

This 2D animated series is based on the video game franchise of the same name. It takes elements from several games in the series, however, it is based more on Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse which appeared on nintendo entertainment system (NES).

Dracula, who is mourning the murder of his wife at the hands of humans, decides to put an end to them. So he creates an army of demons in order to destroy humanity. Thus, Dracula will be able to live in a world where vampires reign. We follow the adventures of Trevor, the vampire hunter, Sypha, the magician, and Alucard, Dracula’s son, who will do everything to save the land from Dracula’s reign.

We recommend listening to the 4 episodes of season 1 one after the other, as if you were listening to a movie. Indeed, season 1 is very short and is only an introduction to the other 3 seasons. The fun really starts in the 2nd season.
