We're kind of in a dead zone for games at the moment, and Ashe'scolumn about the 25th anniversary of the Transformers got me thinking. Specifically, it got me thinking about what other childhood icons could stand to be mined for a video game. We'll be exploring that here. Join me as I dredge up five cartoons from the 80's and explain why they would make great games. We'll look at what the show was about, if there have been any other videogames derived from it, and what we could cross them with from today's generation to make a great gaming franchise.
