I actually liked Yo Noid when I was a kid. Fester`s Quest was just horrible but they should`ve included Mc Kids since Mcdonalds commercials counted as TV I think...

Fester`s Quest was actually a decent game that played just like the dungeon levels of Blaster Master. Absolutely nothing wrong with the controls as these inane idiots claim.
Gremlins 2, I actually got pretty far into before I found another game to entertain me.
I`d actually like to see how anyone could think Yo Noid was based off of TV, when it was just another blatant attempt to commercialize, just like with Cool Spot, or that one McDonald`s game (Puzzle Quest or something, I don`t remember right now).
I mean, seriously, could we have at least seen any of the Dark Man series on this list? Or how about Nightmare on Elm Street? American Gladiators? Nick`s Guts? Double Dare?

I`m half glad this list wasn`t done around the SNES, or my list would be quite a bit longer.

7) Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
8) Mega Man 2

Honorable mentions: Battletoads, Bomberman, Castlevania, Contra, the Donkey Kongs, Excitebike, Gradius, Kid Icarus, Lemmings, Marble Madness, and Tetris.

* note none of the best 8 are based on movies, because all movie-to-game adaptations suck worse than two vacuums fellating each other square in the middle of Hurricane Katrina

Just because a movie was succesful, doesn`t mean the video game version of it will be....

they fail, ghostbusters 1, that game was awful to the point where you wanted to murder whoever made it,or the abominabal batman and superman titles, or the terrible indiana jones ones, these actually looked semi playable next to those.

Not only do I not own any of those games, I also don`t feel strongly enough about any of the film/tv shows they were based on.

This list would have been better on cracked.com

But not really.

Me too. I loved Yo Noid as a kid. Not sure how many hours I lost with that game (Or games in general >_<).

Also, what I had noticed with the video, is that the player either didn`t realise or just didn`t bother with opening the bigger scrolls with his yoyo. They give you better `power ups` for the pizza eating game. (Like black pepper and 3x multipliers.)

Some of these were decent. There were quite a few titles missing that would have fared far worse, that I have since forgotten about through many successful months of therapy. Wrestlemania comes to mind...where the odds of successfully (or, accidentally) engaging with an opponent because of the bad physics/controls was about the same as winning the state lotto.
