    Default TV or Movie Based Games?

    TV Show based games do not get nearly the same attention as movie based games it seems. Is there a particular reason for this? I checked out a few random games and think we need to lighten up on movie games being bad because I have yet to find a good TV show one. Any suggestions?

    There are a bunch of Star Trek games, for everything from the arcade to PC, the 2600 to the NES to the Genesis. Yes some might be more movie tie in, but there are also specific TOS, TNG, DS9 and even games just tied to ST in general.

    Most of those are cartoons. Most of the good games based on TV shows I could think of are cartoons as well. The video is mostly about games based on live action sitcoms, which I am having a hard time thinking of any good games.
