The first time I saw Agent 47 was (believe it or not) in the 2007 movie. I watched it in 2009 or 2010. I was 12 years old and I remember loving the movie. Beyond this point, I was aware that Hitman was a very famous stealth games series, but my parents were always very restrictive about the games I played (to this day my mother still complains if she sees me playing something violent, specially Hitman).
When Absolution came out, I remember being really excited for the game and I wanted to buy it wouldn't run in my computer. I had a friend that had the game, but I was too shy to ask him if I could play it.
The first time I really played a Hitman game was in 2015 (yes, I'm a newcomer to the franchise). I watched a trailer of the recent movie and thought to myself "Man, this is bullshit. Hitman is supposed to be stealthy". Then I started to think "Wait, how do I know that if I never played the games?"
So I instantly bought all the games on Steam and played them all (kinda, I still have to finish Absolution). I didn't feel that the games aged that much, since the core experience was still great, so I loved them all. Now I'm trying to save some money to buy HITMAN™ Season One.
There you go, a story about how the Hitman movies actually turned someone into a fan of the games. At least they managed to get THIS right.
