Who You Gonna Call? Ghostbusters Video Game

Motivated by the success of other classic movies-turned-video games (Scarface, The Godfather), Sony has inked a deal to make the campy Ghostbusters franchise into a video game. What's more, not only will all four of the main movie guys (Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Bill Murray, and Harold Ramis) and some of the supporting actors (William Atherton, Annie Potts) be lending their voices and likeness to the game, but Akroyd and Ramis will also be writing a story for it.

Aykroyd and Ramis' story will take place in the early '90s, after Ghostbusters II, "during a new ghoul invasion of New York City."

What other beloved '80s movies would make good video games? Personally, I'd love to see one for Adventures in Babysitting. What about you?

The Neverending Story game, if it's the one I'm thinking is ooooold. It was made in like, 1985. Googling.... okay. There was another one made in 2002. Still, they're both for PC only. Neverending story for XBox would be awesome, and I can't wait for Ghostbusters on 360!

Me too, and with the same characters. Usually movies like that one turn out better when they use the same good experienced actors.

The article says it'll be available for several systems: "Developer Terminal Reality is making a "Ghostbusters" game for PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 aimed primarily at the core gamer demographic, while Red Fly Studio is making a version for Playstation 2, Wii and DS designed more for families and casual gamers." colormesticky — That Princess Bride idea is awesome! I would love to play that game. :) I also thought of one for The Neverending Story, but apparently there was one made in Germany a few years ago. Go figure.

I just watched this last Sunday. I saw this headline and immediately hoped it would be for XBox 360, but stupid Sony probably won't share. They should do a Princess Bride game. Pirates, sword fights, the works. It'd be great. And rated E.

I wonder what system that would be on and if we could play as all 4 characters and if they're going to put Slimer and Marshmallow Man in there. I love the Ghostbusters! Man, that brings back memories.
