Things that should have been games!
« on: March 05, 2014, 19:44:04 PM »
So what things are there that really should have been games?

Be it movies, TV shows, toys, food . . . anything!

This is my first vote, how a game was never about this amazing TV show is simply baffling!

Was the Genesis Stargate so bad they did not make an SG-1 update?

It's not that bad, but it's very hard. The SNES version is a bit easier. I think there's a difference in the way the lives/continues works. I forget now.

As for the topic:

I was wondering recently why there wasn't a Cool Runnings game.

I never would have thought of that ever! But it's certainly an interesting idea!  :16:

There definitely should have been a video game based on The Raccoons cartoon.

I was actually going to say this myself, while the computer game was pretty good I am really shocked that there was never a console game.

I am also pretty shocked that there were not more Transformers games too, I only know of the poor Spectrum/Commodore 64 game by Ocean.

Yeah, I can't remember seeing any console Transformers games.  There are plenty modern ones but not in retro land.

Here is another classic 80's TV series that was never done justice, it only got an incredibly shit Spectrum game.

Since everyone is listing cheesy 80's shows I'll add another, the absolute classic Manimal  :24:

Well, weren't we gaming in the 80's?  ;)  Fixed your link to the video, btw.
