Rise of the Licensed Game: Don’t Be Afraid of Them Anymore

Oooh licensed video games. I don’t think a more sure-fire way to scare off a gamer exists.

Anyone over the age of twelve has probably caught on to the fact that, in general, licensed games (games based on some other non-video game intellectual property like a movie, comic or TV show) are less than stellar. Obviously we can’t put all the blame squarely on the game companies and developers involved though. Licensed games are often made with very small budgets and on tight time restraints. (Culture)
