5 Reasons Why An Avengers Game Can't Work

With the Avengers movie storming into cinemas as we speak, many gamers may wonder why a video game tie-in hasn't appeared for this anticipated ensemble film. Surely they're the perfect fit? I would testify against that- follow the link to find out why...

Yeah that would be a horrible Idea o make this game. I think that if rocksteady is given the title and they dont have to follow the movie then maybe it can work

Oh by all means, if we could get a game given the time and quality developer then it might be a less futile endeavour, but within the current market for release day tie-ins where devs get often barely a year to churn out these blatant cash-grabs, that is just looking less and less likely. If an Avengers game could be given that kind of dedication, I'd be happy to be proved wrong, but overall it's sadly looking pretty unlikely.

2012 seems to have been a bit of a shadowy spot for superhero games too- whereas last year we got the sensational Marvel VS Capcom 3 and the stunning Arkham City, this year we get...The Amazing Spider-Man, Prototype 2 and LEGO Batman 2. Ah. Considering one of those isn't even a 'licensed' game, the likelihood of those even coming close to upholding the genre this year is pretty slim. Sad times.

Why is everyone saying if (any superhero movie) can be done by Rocksteady there was good super hero games before

Well most movie to game adaptions end up to be disapointing.

It CAN work. Just not in the format of a movie game. Not likely, anyway.

I see what you're getting at here, but that wasn't really a specific Avengers game, and despite being fun it essentially amounts to a linear top-down RPG with varying powers whereas if an Avengers game were to be made as I was saying in the article, there would be a number of contrasting gameplay styles that would be challenging to implement as a whole.
