Ghostbusters The Video Game Remastered-HOODLUM
Just as cinema did before it, the video game industry has taken plenty of inspiration from the Big Apple. Many of the medium's biggest hits take place throughout New York, from big-budget blockbusters to indie darlings. Given the sheer volume, it's no surprise that the city never sleeps.
Some provide picture-perfect representations of the city, while others choose instead to add their own creative twist. Whether driving frantically around the sprawling city streets or swinging carelessly above them though, the five boroughs serve as a sumptuous setting for the chaos and carnage that so often goes hand in hand with video games.
Updated August 12, 2022, by Tom Bowen: With Marvel's Spider-Man now available on windows, PC gamers finally have access to one of the best video games set in New York City. There are plenty of other great examples, however, and not just in the wall-crawler's extensive back catalog of games. The likes of Rockstar and EA have developed and published a lot of titles that take place in the big apple over the years, and, just like the city itself, fans of the five boroughs should refrain from sleeping on these fantastic video games that take place in New York City.
As far as video game adaptations of movies go, The Warriors is one of the better ones, even if it does place a lot more emphasis on combat than the source material. To its credit though, the beat 'em up gameplay feels incredibly natural given the violent nature of Walter Hill's 1979 movie and the novel on which it was based. The game also serves as a reminder that Rockstar Games is more than just GTA and Red Dead Redemption, which, these days, can sometimes be easy to forget. 1e1e36bf2d
