Mad Max. Maybe there would have been a sequel by now, if the Nintendo Entertainment System might have sold better in the UK. :(

Nearest Mad Max game i saw:

Outlander MD/SNES (versions differ on viewpoint in some sections)

Favorite of mine is Outlander.

Official Nintendo release, does not look near as good.

Did the Mad Max game actually come out? I'm not sure. It looks like it was probably by the same people who did the Dirty Harry game for the NES, which was awful.

Imagine going through an ordinary door into a room. Imagine once you're inside the room, the place where the door was replaced by graffiti reading 'HA HA HA'. Imagine you can now never leave this room, so you have to reset the game.

Imagine ripping the cartridge from the console and tearing it apart with your bare hands.

It as real as Gilligan's Island. Nintendo had no limits to what was released on the Nes.
I have it on my to play list, after I help Gilligan. Also, Outlander for the Genesis.

Cool, I really like the Mad Max character. After you have tried it let us know if it's any good or not  :)

I recommend Gilligan's Island. Oh, you were talking about Mad Max. Ok. :21: I would also recommend Mighty Bomb Jack.

Wasn't a movie, rather a TV series in the states: Battlestar Galactica. I always loved the look of this series over Star Wars BITD. Would make for some excellent space shooter scenarios ala Rogue Squadron on Gamecube.

Smokey and the Bandit: I could see this with lots of jumps and police chases as you drive Bandit's Pontiac Trans Am.

Another US TV series: The A team. Not sure how this one would be designed, except that BA and Mr. T would be involved in lots of combat scenes.

There's actually 3 A-Team games. One was an unreleased 2600 game that would eventually become Saboteur, which stars Mr. T's giant, floating, laser-shooting head. Another is a horrendous Space Invaders clone where you have to shoot at the giant floating heads of the A-Team. While the Star Wars theme plays. And the last one is apparently some sort of Operation Wolf clone.

I'm trying to think of movies/games/cartoons that would make good games, but right now, I've got nothing. Try me later.

Well it's being over 2 weeks now and we had some interesting replies on the subject of classic movies being turned into video games, I personally would of liked to see my lists, but good stuff all the same, so well done to all involved..

this week's "want to know why" is a little different..from last weeks question.


Roll up..roll up....



have a good one ;)

Good question  :113:

I thought long and hard about this and I can't look any further than the classics, if I was to recommend video games to people who hadn't played them and knew nothing about them then I would pick something easy to play and simple to understand. For that reason my first choice would be Pac-Man. Firstly because it features an iconic character, secondly because it's easy to play and understand but mostly because it sums up what video games are all about - it offers pure escapism and is just completely different to anything you can experience in real life.

My other 4 nominations would be:

Tetris - Don't really need to say more about this, one of the most addictive games ever made and simple to play.
Space Invaders - The grand daddy of shoot 'em ups it gives the perfect balance of both risk and reward to the player.
Outrun - To show what a difference music can add to a game to create a whole experience of extreme pleasure.
Bomberman - Purely for the multi-player experience, showing just how more enjoyment can be added to a game by adding more players.

I'm going to say the original Super Mario Bros.
It's a classic and a great introduction to both platformers and Mario.
It's also very easy to pick up and play but tough to master which is perfect.
