The Best Movie Tie-In Games That Never Were.

Posted by Erik Henriksen on Thu, Feb 12, 2009 at 9:30 AM

Thanks to restrictive licensing contracts, impossible deadlines, and general, go-fuck-yourself-style apathy from developers, publishers, and consumers alike, movie tie-in videogames usually end up with graphics that look like they were optimized for an abacus and controls that only work if you cram your Wiimote into the jaws of someone having a grand mal seizure.

They will never stop getting made, though, so we might as well get used to 'em. And hope that some movies that haven't ever had videogame adaptations will get their own games in the future. Who wouldn't want to play games inspired by The Breakfast Club, Old Yeller, No Country for Old Men, and American History X?

All of those are via Games Radar's Long Lost Movie Games, and there are plenty more, too, and all are definitely worth checking out. Via Kotaku.
