9 Brilliant Video Games Based On TV Shows That You Totally Missed

We all know how video game adaptations usually work. Seen as little more than an easy cash-in on the success of a movie or TV show, there are countless sub-par titles with the names of truly great shows plastered across their cases, and fans have learned to expect the worst.

There's The Simpsons Wrestling, the Little Britain game, even Mr. Bean had his own outing but time and time again we get little more than a handful of pitiful likenesses of our favourite TV characters and we're expected to stomach the absolute slop within.

Every now and then, however, an adaptation is made that is truly brilliant. South Park: The Stick of Truth, The Simpsons: Hit and Run, and DuckTales are just a few games based on TV shows that are remembered as great in their own right, and that's the way it should be.

After all, if you're making a game based on a show, surely - on some level at least - it's a labour of love? Among all the stinkers, it's easy to lose sight of some of the good ones, so here are 9 video games based on TV shows that you may not have played.
