The Tricky Relationship Between Movie Franchises and Gaming

If the huge success of Marvel’s cinematic universe has led to one thing, it is the desire of big film studios to have a ‘franchise’. Now everyone wants a successful ‘tent-pole’ franchise of interlinked films, whether it is Warner Bros trying to create a DC Comics version of Marvel’s success, Fox looking to develop more Alien films or Universal pushing out yet another THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS film.

Of course the films are just one part of the pulling power of these franchises, with studios looking to take big-screen success into other areas including merchandise and gaming. The aim is simple – to leverage the brand recognition of a franchise to attract fans to new experiences.

However, taking a film into the gaming world is not always as easy as it sounds. It is possible, although not always in the genre of games that you might expect.

Critical Blast & Game Jab Present Top Ten Games of 2016

TOP TEN

2016 is the third year that Critical Blast has done our Best Of awards, but it's the first year that we've had a category for Best Video Game -- largely due to the inclusion of Game Jab as our partners in this (formerly) under-represented arena.

Now, normally, this is where we would tell straight up who the winner is, after telling you who all the other nominees were, as well as include a highly technical (and very scientific) pie chart, because nothing says statistical selection like a pie chart.

But the boys had a different idea. So click the play button below and setting in for the most anticipated awards show on the Internet! (Oscars, eat your heart out!) Because it's time for the...
