Good morning folks! Today’s Open Forum is brought to you by your favorite meat-person... Meathead!

Licensed games, what’cha think? We have seen a bazillion licensed games, and a great many of those have been good. We’ve gotten more good Star Wars games than I can start with, Dungeons and Dragons has been ripe with great games (Neverwinter Nights being one of my favorite games ever), etc etc.

However for all of those great games, there are many many properties that have never gotten a good game. Or on the flipside have just been ignored entirely.

I will forever hold out the hope that someday I could possibly get a super badass Black Rock Shooter themed hack n’ slash title, as she is totally deserving of such a game (the bloodbourne crossover in the header just reinforced this desire).

So for today’s topic lets talk licensed games; What property really needs the game treatment? Or how about your favorite licensed game? Least favorite?

Time for some morning jamz;
