13 Gaming Franchises Influenced By Hip-Hop

The Koalition: ''If you have been a frequent visitor to TheKoalition.com then you will know by now that we cover both video games and Hip-Hop music. Therefore, some of the team were rather amused when we found out earlier this month that Kanye West had both inspired and took centre stage of a JRPG.

Therefore, myself and our Editor-in-Chief Richard Bailey Jr. have both compiled a list of the top 13 video game franchises which have been influenced by Hip-Hop music.'' (GameCube, Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure, Need For Speed, PaRappa the Rapper, PC, PS2, PS3, PSP, Saints Row, Scarface: The World Is Yours, Sleeping Dogs, True Crime: Streets of LA, Wu-Tang: Shaolin Style, Xbox, Xbox 360)

The inclusion on Young Jeezy's 'I Luv It' in Saint's Row 2 perfectly captures the essence of the game.

Def Jam: Vendetta/FFNY were both great games, but then they ruined the series with Icon. Rapstar was a terrible game that tried to ride the Guitar Hero/Rockband wave and failed miserably.

dumbest list I've ever come across. Everything on there is based on and influenced by much more than just hip hop.
