the return of kids movie tie in games?

21 posts in this topic

i know there were a lot of these on the ps3 and there were the notorious easy platinums that actually took time back in the day but with this and the likes of hotel transylvania releasing in the past, do you think this will be the return of movie tie in games more frequently? maybe we'll get a hannah montana the movie game remastered one day

I kind of hope so. I like playing the odd kids game and I decided to collect a few of them on PS3 just for fun. If they weren't so expensive on PS4 I'd buy them too.

Game based on licensed animated films were pretty much absent in this generation, I only recall LEGO The Incredibles 2, Dragons: Dawn of New Riders and few games based on CN TV shows, but that's all.

 

I think about two reasons of this: game industry nowadays demands higher quality and not many devs want to put a lot of money for these types of games. Also gaming is now considered older people's hobby, so they fear the game will not sell well. Many games are designed to have a big open world and a lot of stuff to do (even if repetitive), so the games like this won't be awaited much. Most license-based games are now being released on mobile phones, as kids nowadays prefer to play on phone.

 

I have a casual gamer buddy and he only picks games on PS4 with open worlds because "the price justifies the time needing to finish the game and see the credits", so I guess most casual gamers thinks the same.

It's also an excuse for me to introduce my young kids to my favorite hobby and not having to worry about what I am playing and when.

 

I kinda envy you. I have no kids/younger sibling so I'd have no "fake" reason to put it on my profile. I know nobody should be ashamed of playing a game they want to play, but anyway.

I love kids games, not ashamed to play ‘em. I do so on Xbox, they’re given away quite often each month as part of the online subscription and I’ve enjoyed every single one so far. Some titles have been a little challenging too so I don’t see why adults and kids alike couldn’t enjoy them. You really don’t need an excuse.

Too little, too late. The world will never know the infinite joys of the Emoji Movie Game.

I'm starting to buy all these little games on PS3 because they become more difficult to find with the time. Next one is Ice Age 3.

Anyway, we need more Disney Pixar Dreamworks or Marvel :platinum:

I sure hope. Often terrible quality aside, I missed the days when devs would try to pack a movie in game form.

 

You can tell from my trophy list and my status updates that I still like playing movie games like Kung Fu Panda, Shrek 2, the Spider-man series, most recently Brave, and more. Like I said when talking about Spidey movie 1, I like the idea of reliving with my own hands the experience of a movie.

 

Of course, I'm also of the opinion that a lot of gaming's "original" moments stopped being -- well, original -- a long time ago.

*snip*

Some of those are on PS Now if you don't mind using that [and if it's in your country..]. I played Brave, G-Force, Ben 10 Omniverse games which is delisted now since the publisher lost the rights, now it's with Outright Games who have made one game Ben 10 which I also played and platted on PS Now, and who are publishing Scrat [and the Dragons game someone else mentioned]. Disney Universe is on there [didn't plat it there though, I have it]. Cars games are on there other than the third one. Toy Story Mania, Phineas And Ferb as well.

The platinum is unobtainable since the servers went offline a couple of years ago. I wouldn't recommend it unless you don't care about completion.

The same applies to all the Disney Infinity games since they all had goofy online trophies. Shame as the games are fun. edit; aside from the Vita version of 2.0 which had no online.

I’ve got all the Skylanders platinums, and all the infinity platinums. 
 

I really wish they’d both make a come back

just finish this game and hotel transylvania, not the best games of the year, but at least I had fun playing them, so I hope, we will have more of this games, and if the overal quality of those games can be a little higher it will be perfect

 

buf to answer your question, i hope i am wrong, but, i don't think we will suddenly have a lot of this kind of games, when i am writting this there are less than 1000 game owners for this scrat game, and around 3500 for transylvania 3, it's not so much, especially after that those 2 games already have been on sales
