The Walking Brain-Dead

What is it with the current trend of naming everything the same? Back in the day it was all about off-shoots, different versions and new twists. If there was a game of a film, it would be acceptable for that game to have the same name, but other than that, it was unheard-of. Now the world has flipped on its head and it makes no sense.

Movie games have only recently bared any noticeable resemblance to the films they’re based on. The Terminator games on NES had almost different plots to the films, yet were named the same. The Batman Returns game I had on SNES was essentially Streets of Rage: Gotham City, but was simply called Batman Returns. When a level actually mirrored an event in the film it was a surprise and a hoot; reviews specifically praised those sections, so rare they were. (Avengers Initiative, Avengers Origins: Assemble, Culture, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day")
