From the classic arcade game to their appearance in Lego Dimensions, The Simpsons has a storied history in gaming.
Hit & Run is the best. We totally need a remake... or even a back compat release.
Why a remake? Why not a new game?
I'd be down for either :)
I like the old Simpsons cast more.
No Virtual Springfield? Though tbf it was more of an experience than a game, even though it did have some little gameplay in some parts. Fun for fans though. Hit & Run was great, my only complaint would be that Homer didn't have enough missions, the game could've been a bit longer and bigger.
This! Virtual Springfield is hands down the best Simpsons game. Such love and a modern take on that (in VR) would really bring the 35 years of Simpson-mania together in one massive package. I would love this!
Homer didn't have enough missions? What do you mean? Homer and Bart were the only 2 characters that got 2 levels each.
I myself liked the DS version of the Simpsons game much more than the one on main consoles, it was a proper 2D platformer game, I recommend.
Hit & Run is in dire need of a sequel. They could do so much more with the upgraded tech.
15 years without a single Simpsons game now because it's in the hands of one of the worst companies, EA. A license in the hands of one of the worst companies and look what they have done to it. They have effectively killed it to make money off that crappy mobile game.
Im with you, I hate when companies effectively kill off a franchise like that. They could have done anything with the license and they did THAT?! 🤦🤷
My dream would be for Volition to use the Saints Row engine for a Simpsons open world game. Would be awesome!
Hit and Run was by far my favorite, even though I loved the Simpsons Arcade. I even had the full old school cabinet in my house at one point! A video store in my town went out of business the guy sold me the arcade unit for $50 😳 I couldn't say no! Good times. I totally wish we could get a new Hit and Run sequel or similar open world GTA style Simpsons game. I loved exploring the iconic places in game. I'm so glad I live near Universal Orlando, the Simpsons themed parts of the town are amazingly detailed and fun to be around, even if the rides suck.
