Proof That Pulp Fiction Would Have Made a Terrible Video Game



Don’t get me wrong – I love Cinefix’s loving recreation of the movie in (mostly) 8-bit Nintendo style, especially the music. But it also showcases how incredibly not fun such a game would have been to actually play, had it existed back when the movie came out.

On the other hand, with modern technology – make a fighting game in which Jules yells “Motherfucker!” every time he throws his boomerang wallet, and the Gimp has a dildo attack, and Marsellus’ finisher is the “Get Medieval”…THAT, I would play. Over and over.

You would too. Don’t lie.
