Apocalypse Now: New Mad Max Game Just Plain Mad?

XboxOZ360's David Hilton asks if post-nuclear apocalypse games like Mad Max and Fallout 3 will appeal to gamers:

"'"We don't need another hero!" screams Tina Turner in her song for Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome. Maybe we also don't need another Mad Max game? After all the NES had one based on the second Mad Max film, The Road Warrior. And post-apocalyptic nuclear wastelands are so 1945-1980s aren't they?

When I first learned that Mad Max filmmaker George Miller was collaborating with God of War 2's Cory Barlog to make a Mad Max video game I arched my eyebrow in amazement. Could the Mad Max post-apocalyptic universe, with pitched battles over limited oil resources between thrifty but desperate survivors of a nuclear war and gangs of opportunistic punks, be a great game?" (Culture, Fallout 3, Mad Max, PS3, Xbox 360)

I think there's going to be a movie with this
I think they plan on releasing another Mad Max movie with it...but it won't have Mel Gibson...
