Since the Simpsons' TV showed launched in 1989, more video games have been made about them than just about any non-game franchise this side of Star Wars and Dragonball Z. Unfortunately, the medium doesn't have much to show for it.
Loved The Simpsons games for my Genesis and SNES, but after that i had no real interest in them (besides Simpsons Wrestling for Ps1 of course).
The only Simpsons game I ever owned was back on the NES. Cant remember what it was called but I did like it, although I was pretty young back then.
who cares? look what they did for tv ahha
Stole the plot of 'They Live'.
I loved the Simpsons game for Ps3... Crafted, written and put together extremely well. The voice actors being on board and actually giving great performances went along way with me too. More than I can say for Spiderman movie games, for instance. And way more appealing than Heavy Rain's stiff, low budget voice acting. Simpsons have done plenty for video games, reguardless if you like all of them or not a lot of the simpsons games were classics on the nes thru the gen/snes days.
who comes up with articles like these? desperation for hits anyone?
A really good arcade game :)

... an open world Springfield, lots of great characters, a distinctive style, and with the great writers from the TV-show, I'm sure you could have great writing for the videogame as well. Lots of side-missions for Moe, Comicbook-guy, Mr. Burns, Apu, etc etc. The potential is endless.
...With the Simpsons Hit + Run. It was actually a pretty decent game, if I recall. Not entirely open world, but it was basically a semi-open world GTA with a Simpsons theme and no gore (duh haha). Good times.
Yep Simpsons Hit % Run and Simpsons Road Rage was awesome
