The Vicious Cycle of Movie Based Games

Brady Ruiters from ITF Gaming writes: Movie-based videogames; we’ve all played at least one of them during our time as gamers. These film tie-ins are generally a method of cashing in on the popularity of a certain film. Novel tie-ins have the same purpose, often sporting a cover that is similar to the movie poster. Some of them are okay-ish and some of them are just borderline terrible. More often than not, encountering a mainly lacklustre game is more probable than finding a bit of a hidden gem. So why then, do developers still entertain the prospect of film tie-ins? It’s a little strange. (Culture, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)
