Long lost movie games

Compared to the last Nintendo handheld, the DS is sorely lacking in thoughtless movie cash-ins. And given how little creativity goes into most of them anyway, we thought we’d make a couple of suggestions that rolled off the top of our heads.


Did you think you’d get out of this feature without at least one tasteless Deliverance joke? Let’s keep it classy and just say it’d be the most button mash-tastic experience up to two players could ever be forced into.

Above: You’ll squeal for joy!

    Oh, and I actually just read the Deliverance joke...I don't think any other site on the web ('cept maybe Destructoid) could match that in pure hilariousness. Bottoms up!

    Ha. The American History X one was fantastic.

    Hey, you forgot Citizen Kane: The Search For Rosebud! Ripping of Zelda, you play Kane's devoted journalist fighting his way through flashback dungeons and social villages, confronting Kane's buddy's, bosses, and wives, for answers to the truth!

    You may have a point, Circlestrafe. Humorless executives could very well interpret this as a plea to kickstart development... What have I done?!
  • Circlestrafe - February 13, 2009 12:08 a.m.

    Funny story, but NO! Don't give any of these brain dead corporate execs any idea that movie --> game is anywhere near a good idea. Save for the requisite 'exception to the rule', games based on movies suck!

    @oryandymackie: I wish it did. Let's petition Bethesda for some Dirty Harry inspired Fallout 3 DLC.
  • oryandymackie - February 12, 2009 6 p.m.

    does the Most Powerful Handgun In The World actually EXIST? Keep me posted. Please.
  • AngeloComet - February 12, 2009 8:18 a.m.

    The whole feature deserves a round of applause - you've set a new benchmark for dispensable game/movie crossover humour!
  • LionheartAce - February 12, 2009 6:07 a.m.

    Hijo de gran puta! LoL, good one.

    I envision a Breakfast Club as a stealth game. Imagine creeping through the hallways as an agile Judd Nelson ducking from the Principal. Also, throw a little free running in there (the slippery hallways would make a great sliding device). Great article GR.

    I was only saying the other day a next-gen Jurassic Park game would be quality
  • bl00dyvalen7ine - February 12, 2009 2:42 a.m.

    Hey, wasn't there actually gonna be a Daredevil game?
  • NelosAngelos - February 12, 2009 12:51 a.m.

    [Luck 2%] Well, I did find a penny today. Yay, Dirty Harry and your .44 magnum...the most powerful handgun in the world. And yes make a Goodfellas movie, please!!!!
  • Romination - February 12, 2009 12:22 a.m.

    this article made my tummy hurt. from sheer genius. The Old Yeller picture caused me to laugh until I pooed (which is good...i'm on the toilet)
  • norid - February 11, 2009 11:57 p.m.

    I would play the Breakfast Clup game
