We'll admit it: we've got a massive man crush on Robert De Niro. Well, at least for classic De Niro, before all his films started to lose their shit in spectacular style in the noughties. Before then, he starred in some of the greatest war and crime flicks ever, any one of which would make awesome adult games.
Why the hell should we have to put up with Generic Space Marine 36 or Emo RPG Explorer 72, when we could be running people over with Taxi Driver's Travis Bickle or whacking wiseguys with Goodfellas' Jimmy 'The Gent' Conway? That's why we've taken the best movies from the 'Greatest Actor Ever' TM and mashed them up with brilliant games, to create the most badass Bobby titles ever.
Cabela’s Dangerous Deer Hunter
The De Niro mashup: Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts meets The Deer Hunter
It's the coup Cabela's been waiting for, as the seminally sucky hunting series finally bags itself the biggest catch of all: Bobby De Niro. Putting bloodthirsty players in the shoes of Michael Vronsky, an emotionally-crippled Vietnam vet, the game rewards you for murdering the shit out of as many proud stags as you can find.
So forget the 'Nam and how it ruined all your relationships and get ready to bag yourself a few trophy bucks in the ultimate eloquent commentary on war and its devastating effects. Mmmm, it's gonna be Bambi burgers on the menu tonight, baby!
