I was digging in the garage and found a few old games from back in the day. At one time they were high in demand and sometimes difficult to acquire. So with that being said pitch in and see if we can't make a lengthy list of movie based games.

Escape From New York
This is the one that started this geeklist. Yeah it's sort of old and the game play is out dated, but it's a cult classic. I got this one about 30 years ago at the hardware store in our local mall, now long since closed.

I got this one for Christmas way way back in the day, when it was new. I remember seeing the film and my father giving me grief because he didn't realize how long the film was. Funny note my parents got me this but lost the gift until November of the next year when we moved the couch to put up the tree, it was only 11 months late.

I had two of these, well one and my brothers. He was terrified of it but he was also five years old at the time. That and when on vacation I had him so terrified that he wouldn't go near the water at the beach.

Starship Troopers!

This was Avalon Hill's second game based on "Starship Troopers", but whereas the first was based on the novel, this second game was obviously based on Paul Verhoeven's satirical masterpiece...

Here's a fascinating article on this movie...

How about the two Peter Cushing films about the Dalek invasion of earth. Great stuff if you can navigate the old cheesy special effects.
