Let’s be honest – as a rule, games based on movies don’t work.
But simple math provides the reason why these bad games keep happening:
Fact 1 – movies make $$$
Fact 2 – games make $$$
Therefore, games based on movies will make $$$.
There are two movies coming out this summer I’m looking forward to which will undoubtedly be made into video games – and I’m nervous:
The Dark Knight
I hope things change.
I hope, starting now, that we no longer will have to fear movie-based games.
Only time will tell. . .
