Kill Bill Would Make an AWESOME NES Game!


Game and movie adaptations are generally pretty terrible. Like… really bad. I mean, the gaming industry famously collapsed and nearly completely died in the 1980’s because of a particularly bad game-from-a-movie. But yet they aren’t terrible uniformly. Batman based off Tim Burton’s movie was actually pretty awesome. And Aladdin for the SNES (Shut up, SEGA fans! The SNES version was better!)? Freaking brilliant. It’s this retro-nostalgia and the entire premise of the movie that allows me to comfortably say… I want a Kill Bill game right now!

So the chances of that happening are approximately 0%, but that’s okay. I at least have an amazing YouTube video to show the possibilities that… aw hell, it just makes me want the game even more! Published by YouTube channel CineFix, ‘KILL BILL (Vol 1 and 2)’ is a part of their 8-bit Cinema series and goddamn it makes me want movie games even more! I mean… a Mean Girls [r]adventure game? Yes please!

For one thing I love the use of other games’ mechanics in this video, but I do have to lay on several complaints. This isn’t entirely 8 bit, and at some points it even looks like 16 bits. Also, there’s an SNES controller pictured which would solidify the latter. But hey, that’s just me being nitpicky. The fact that there’s an “eyeball snatch” movie makes me happy and suddenly want that move in every game from now on! Everything about this fictional game just seems…. right! The 8-bit aesthetic even fits perfectly with the classic film homage style Quentin Tarantino was going for.

I’m going to say it: I want a retro Kill Bill game yesterday! Make it so!

What do you think, gamers? What would you like to see turned from movie into game? What movie games have you enjoyed? Sound off in the comments!
