If you were a kid during the 80’s and early 90’s, you probably watched the G.I. Joe cartoon. It was usually on somewhere around Transformers and Thundercats. Well it has become the trend to remake everything I loved as a kid in the form of movies and video games. Some are good (see X-Men) while others I’m still trying to forget (see X-Men 3). I haven’t gotten around to seeing the new G.I. Joe movie, but I have had the chance to play through the game.
This whole idea that every iconic movie needs a video game tie-in has really got to stop. Do people actually get excited about these? I can’t remember the last time I played one that was worthwhile, and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra is no exception.
