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 ;)

TheSanchezDavid1655d ago

I definitely feel like it was an underappreciated gem and was overlooked on account of the console versions.

Protagonist1654d ago (Edited 1654d ago )

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!

The Simpsons Arcade was awesome

VenomUK163d ago

I never knew there are TWENTY-EIGHT Simpsons games!

Stuart5756162d ago

Its crazy when you look at ALL the games they made. Same with Assassins Creed, when you count in all the handheld and mobile games there are three times what you may have thought. Some of it shovelware though. I completed Simpsons Arcade recently at a local retro gaming arcade, awesome, I really felt like a 90's kid all over again, except my back was hurting!!

The Simpsons: Hit & Run Devs Don’t Understand Why the Game Never Got a Sequel

In an interview with MinnMax, the team behind The Simpsons: Hit & Run revealed they were shocked that the game didn't get a sequel.

Same I want a hit and run 2 fr make it

VenomUK233d ago

I wish the guy that recreated the game with updated graphics made a deal with the publisher and released it,! It would be win, win for everyone.

Snookies12234d ago

It's okay, I don't understand it either. One of the few games I went out of my way to go for 100% on.

I loved this game as a kid, probably the best Simpsons game they made and the fact they decided to not continue it is baffling. Probably more baffling that they aren't doing a remake or something considering the popularity.

The only thing I didn't really like about it was how everything was timed, some missions like racing Skinner to the school I understood as you were trying to give Lisa her science project she forgot but there were others where it was only telling you to get to a location (no urgency) yet it was still timed.

I just wanted to take my time and appreciate the game more, mess around and try different ways of going about things so hopefully if there ever is a sequel they will look into it. Just felt I was rushing through the story.
