The Big 3 of Licensed Games from Movies | TechRaptor Podcast 94

Published: July 31, 2023 7:04 AM /


We’re trying something new this week we’re calling The Big 3 where we face off against one another by creating our own individual best of lists. This time we’re going for the best movie tie-in games, which are games directly related to a movie, not just something from the franchise. We structured it like your classic fantasy sports draft, so there are some definite reaches in picks later on.

Where would you pick such classics like Goldeneye 007 or Spider-Man 2? Would something like X-Men Origins: Wolverine or Star Wars: The Phantom Menace make your list? We discuss these and more, including some honorable mentions.

Podcast 94's video is below, or watch on YouTube and Listen on Anchor.
