GameCrate: "Here is the definitive list of the best Simpsons games ever. That's right: ever. Or, ya know, at least five pretty good ones."
The Simpsons Arcade game was a fond childhood memory. And Hit and Run was another fantastic game. Most of the rest are meh.
Virtual Springfield is my favorite Simpsons game. It was a point and click adventure title that served as a living fangasm. I also played Simpsons Tapped Out for about 3 years but had to stop because even with a cracked version, it was getting too much with the micromanagement. Would love it if it was a game to buy without the phone microtransactions.
The Simpons Hit & Run, Virtual Bart and The Simpsons Game are my top 3. EA have killed Simpsons games though, they are just sitting on that crappy mobile game.
I remember renting Hit and Run and thinking it was so different than advertised. In a good way! Wasn’t expecting an open world Springfield GTA mashup. Lego Dimensions’ Springfield deserves an honourable mention. If you’re a fan it’s worth hunting down the map and some toons.
I think i played the arcade game on an arcade machine, other than that my first one to actually own was on my first PC, Virtual Springfield.. I think i meant to buy Simpsons cartoon studio or whatever it was called, but i think Argos replaced it with Virtual Springfield, it turned out to be quite funny if not much else. Hit & Run was of course really good. If there's a remake I'd like a bit bigger world with more missions and side stuff though. Pretty sure i rented Krusty's Fun House, what a pain in the ass of frustration that was.
I really enjoyed The DS version of The Simpsons Game. And I agree everything you wrote about it ;)
I definitely feel like it was an underappreciated gem and was overlooked on account of the console versions.
I actually got the PS3 version: but never got around to play it, so I still got to make an opinion about that one. Still agree though about the DS version being a great game. aNYWAY hAPPY nEW yEAR!
Shout out to the 80 babies. FOX KIDS 😥😥
All the best Simpson games came out during the first 10 seasons
Seem like you missed out The Simpsons Game, that was a gem.
It was a joke. there have never been good Simpson games
I had one called Bart's Nightmare for my Genesis that was a lot of fun.
