Moonwalker kicked ass back in the day.
It's quite disturbing now.

Fairly poor game, but the Special Moves were awesome!!

Still, I guess we should just be thankful that they never made a videogame of The Wiz....

Seconded. I enjoyed that nostalgic run bit I don't agree with them about being hard.

TMNT was a easy for sure and I complete Ghosts n Goblins on the arcade (it was with quite a few friends). I can understand some of the other suggestions there.

JUDGE DREDD had another sidescroller that was pretty decent too, if I remember correctly. A tie in from the movie, not the comic.

Tyson's Punch-Out wasn't hard, once you realized his blinking gave away his next move. (one eye blinks - an uppercut from that side. both eyes blink - a fury of 3 straight uppercuts. if i remember correctly).

A couple of word for you there.

M.A.M.E, Emulated and Roms.

There. Should make you feel so much better. I've got punch out and it's freakin' awesome. Still a good 'un.

Anyone here ever play The Blues Brothers Game? My little brother and I would play this on multiplayer all the time. It was actually pretty decent, and it had a really good soundtrack in the age when MIDIs didn't seem quite so naff.

Played the Blues Brothers game for the SNES, this one looks different though.

Don't remember playing it on C64.

The only good part of the "Wayne's World" game was when they make a reference to "Regarding Henry: the Video Game".

Now I'd like to see THAT one released.

It was much easier on two-player, where you could do things like jump on Elwood's shoulders so he can throw you onto that tricky ledge.

I saw a trailer for it a while back and it looked like Doom 3 with the plastic graphics/everything must be shiny.

It will be pretty bad. Unless they somehow re-create the whole island faithfully and allow me to be the smoke monster and kill people with no point in doing so.

Oh, and I want to push Hurley off a cliff.

It's 3rd person. Which is why that graphical style does not lend itself to a Lost game.

3rd person's okay, I'm assuming that it's more of an exploritory type game anyways.

Although that does work for 1st person mode too.

FPS with Lost. Nah, I'm gonna say give it the Tomb Raider treatment.

i could see lost working as a 3D platformer, something similar to Pandemonium or Crash Bandicoot on the PS1.
Or maybe as a kinda Prince Of Persia type game.

OMG - that would be awesome. I'm serious - THAT is the sort of thing they should do with a property like Lost, but you just know it will be some kind of generic shooting/puzzle combo!

I'm guessing you are Locke, and you just go from point A to point B to get the "oil can" and bring it back to "Jack." Then get the "medicine" from the van, and the "rag" from the tailsection. "Combine" the "stick" with the "rag" to make a "stick rag." Then light it to find your way to "Claire" who is sick.

I would like to see them remake the old DOS computer game: Lemmings

Image

The lemmings would walk in a straight line and you had to make certain lemmings do specific tasks so that the lemmings could make it to the door without dying. I LOVED IT.

Last I checked you could actually play the game online now.

Well, I did read the thread, but based off the first post, I thought it could be related to video games that they just kept bring back in newer forms that weren't any good. I am sorry that I misunderstood the concept entirely. I didn't know there was a movie called Evil Dead.

I suppose the first real advertised product in a game.


Which came first?

I own this game. I still have it and played it as recently as 6 months ago. It is awesome!

The worst tie-in games for me were Total Recall and Bill & Ted. I had no idea what to do in Total Recall. I'd go in a back alley and kill some guy and then wander around some more. Bill & Ted was even worse. I'd spend hours trying to find these people I'm supposed to talk to and I'd find all but one in the first 10 minutes and spend the rest of the time going back and forth. I think I was able to get on a horse or something but I couldn't control the horse and fell off.

Well, I did read the thread, but based off the first post, I thought it could be related to video games that they just kept bring back in newer forms that weren't any good. I am sorry that I misunderstood the concept entirely. I didn't know there was a movie called Evil Dead.



graaa?

Still to this day, I am astounded.

Please go directly to nearest video store & pick up Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2 & Army Of Darkness, you owe it to yourself.

P.S. don't let DJJ know you've never seen the Evil Dead movies.

Anywho... the tie-in game that I did buy was:

Image

Image

Sega's Batman forever... movement was choppy... the game was easy, but it was difficult to play because of the crappy quality of the game. The animated Batman game was SOOO much better. (The game based of the animated cartoon)

However, now I feel I must point out a game that I got based off a movie that was AMAZING is...

Image

Spider-Man 2

Image

With the amazing graphics, ease of movement and free-style swinging, Spider-Man 2 on XBOX has to be one of my most favorite games... EVER.
