Saw this over at Slate: You've Seen the Movie, Don't Play the Game.
It's been up for awhile... so I apologize if you've already seen it. But after reading Elysium's Screwing the Sheep And Other Mangled Metaphors, I thought it was appropriate.
The client's company then put out several pieces of crap based on the license, and as predicted, people bought them. It's worked out for Enter the Matrix, too: Gamers bought a record 1 million copies in its first week on the shelves.
What's surprising is that gamers haven't figured out that they should stop buying these games.
How many of these kinds of titles are you guilty of purchasing? For me, Star Wars: Rebellion comes to mind.
