Back to the Future video game?

Cos

I saw this article the other day and just didn’t get a chance to post it. A video game version of Back to the Future, in this day and age, would be awesome. Not only are the movie studios going back to the 80’s now for their remakes, but for their video games as well. Back to the Future (I, II, and III) were Nintendo games back in the day, and I don’t honestly think they were that good, but I also never played them.

Here are some screen caps that I found on google:

God bless all of us who played games back in the 80’s. This just reminded me of the Who Framed Roger Rabbit game that my cousin Eliud let me borrow back when Roger Rabbit first came out (I think that was ’88). I just did a quick search and while not the best pic, I think it might show the graphics of these games. We definitely had imaginations back then huh?

Funny thing about both Back to the Future and Roger Rabbit is that both movies were director by Robert (you should stop making dumb movies and making good ones again) Zemeckis, and both had actor Christopher Llyod acting in it.

Anyway, this article was from joblo.com:

Go back to Back to the Future… but only in a videogame

by: Dave Davis Sep. 1, 2010

Unless there’s some chronal chicanery involved, we’re never going to see more BACK TO THE FUTURE movies. But that doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of Doc Brown and Marty McFly.

Telltale Games (known for their “Sam & Max” games) is bringing the beloved characters and their decade-jumping exploits to your local console, and USA Today premiered some artwork showing how the game’s exaggerated versions of Doc and Marty might look.

The games will unfold in five “episodes”, and the original trilogy’s screenwriter Bob Gale is working on the story with the game developers. Steven Spielberg is among the producers, and Christopher Lloyd is back to provide Doc’s voice as only he (well, and Dan Castellaneta) can.

The episodes will feature the familiar DeLorean, Hill Valley circa 1985, and additional characters from the movie series. Versions of the games are expected on all major game platforms.
