Movie Tie-In Games are games that were popular during the late 90s to mid 2000s that were released off the back of major motion pictures to cash in on the popularity, often seen with big action blockbusters and other genres of film. Often seen as cash grabs I want to look into the games that did well and also others that may have not done so well
For my digital artefact I will be looking into the world of movie tie in games and reviewing them and even looking into why they existed and why they have ceased to exist now. I will be engaging other students to to see what games they remember playing as a kid that was related to a movies release. I will be even looking into games that I played as a kid and see if the games still stand up to this day or if it’s just pure nostalgia .
I will be doing this digital artefact in the form of blog posts. Some weeks I may review a game or i may look into the history of a certain movie and its related game and the interesting story behind them. The reviews will be opinion based and the research blogs will be cited and well researched. Some weeks may be a video and other weeks make consist of a poll to see what movie tie in games are deemed the best.
think this Digital Artefact will be fun and interesting for myself and my readers and we can have fun and open discussions about Movie Tie-In games and other related materials.
Heres my video pitch below:
