I’ll be straight with you. There are a lot of games out there based on TV shows—and many of them were made in the 1990s and early 2000s. This isn’t great if you’re looking for game tie-ins to your kids’ modern TV favorites.
Game tie-ins are pretty famous for being awful. (Does anyone remember the Reservoir Dogs game? No? I thought so.) That being said, the rule isn’t universal. Exploring an existing franchise in a new medium should be seen as an opportunity to do something fun and different. It’s slim pickings out there, though. These games are a few of the ones that get things right.
