1. an excuse by a large marketing corporation to capitalize on a source material, usually a movie, decent or not. Usually a piece of garbage so bad that it doesn't even deserve a rental (i.e. most Lucasarts games between 97 and 2003), with few anomalous exceptions (i.e. Revenge of the Sith, Chronicles of Riddick,The Clone Wars, Battlefront). Just as there are movie games that suck, there are also game movies made after excellent games that shame the game/entire series itself (i.e. Doom, Tomb Raider, Bloodrayne), although some times there are movies and games made at the same time based on each other that suck equally (i.e. Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis, Superman 64). For these reasons, companies that commit these horrible deeds have sold less because of the large increase of trusted game reviewers.
person1: Dude, did you hear the review for that Chronicles of Riddick movie game?
person2: Yeah, that was a big surprise.
