Gentleman Troper!Yes, the ET game is one of the most famous examples for people of a certain generation. However, that is not evident from this little screenshot, which just shows the face of ET. Motion to pull. Perhaps we could make up something comparing a movie shot with an in-game screenshot?
Special trousers. Very heroic.
Puʻu ʻŌʻōClassical Just a Face and a Caption here. You can't even see licensed in the image, which is a key part of the trope.
TerradorablyfyingUgh. Supporting pull.

Pull it. The caption is no better, btw.

Rhymes with "Protracted."
I'd recommend someone 'shopping an image similar to the one used for Video Game Movies Suck - a list displaying the poor scores these games usually get in reviews. EDIT: May or may not contain higher-scoring games to show that this doesn't always occur.

Avatar by NeoriceisgoodBecause the trope is about low quality compared to other games, not low quality compared to the source material.
zzz...But wouldn't showing the higher-scoring games defeat the purpose of the trope? Maybe we should put two images - one for The Problem with Licensed Games with the lower-scoring ones, and another one for No Problem With Licensed Games with the higher scoring ones?
I'm thinking take a cue from Porting Disaster.
Professional NerdI screencapped and cropped Superman: The Man of Steel's Gamerankings rating. There's a bit of the issue in that some of the info is lost in resizing, but it still might work (Possible caption: at least it rated better than Superman 64).

Gentleman Troper!That works, but I think you should enlarge the font on "beat-em-up" to make it clear this is not a movie.

The Eternal Fool"Xbox" is one of the few readable things, so I think we're doubly okay. Plus, movies don't have cheats.

Dragon WriterMetacritic example - definitely a bit big, but notice the scores.
No, the other one.@13: I wouldn't count that as readable for an illustration. If you have to search for the text, it's too small, especially since there's a lot of text. Also make sure to actually say which page it's from, since that's not clear.
Check out my fanfiction!
Avatar by NeoriceisgoodBut again, that's focusing on how the game is worse than the movie. We should be focusing on how the movie-based game is worse than non-movie-based games, right?
Anime-tedI tried to do some other takes on that pic, but the ones I came up with were actually worse quality-wise IMO, so I'm good with the one that we have now.
Anime-tedClock's up; locking for inactivity. No further action is to be taken based on this thread.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
