Video Games & Computer Entertainment: Gaming Goes Hollywood (June 1989)

This post is an article  scanned from the pages of Video Games & Computer Entertainment magazine's June 1989 issue. Titled Gaming Goes Hollywood, it discusses the sudden surge of game publishers wanting to nab movie and TV licenses in the late '80s to base games on and the recent releases at the time. Licensed games would have a rather spotty track record until the past decade where we've been able to enjoy much higher quality titles based on some popular licenses, such as High Moon Studios' Transformers series and Rocksteady Studios' Batman Arkham games. Glancing at the cover of this issue you might think that's a stock movie photo of RoboCop but take a closer look and you'll see the cyborg officer is actually holding an NES Zapper light gun.
