The 20 Best Licensed Video Games

We've all played them: games based on our favorite TV shows, movies, music, anime, comics, you name it. If there's a property out there in the world, chances are it spawned a game. For the most part, that's pretty much a death knell for said game, as licensed titles usually aren't very good. But over the years, that sentiment has largely shifted. Back during the days of the NES, SNES, and Genesis (and many later generations), movie games like Top Gun and Friday the 13th were pretty awful, and largely the result of a handful of some pretty lazy developers. Now, it seems licensed properties have been taken a bit more seriously, and it shows with some of the more quality titles out there. It's pretty cool when you check out the full gamut of the best licensed games when you start reminiscing over them.

With that in mind, it can be difficult to sift through game after game that's tied to a particular property, hoping it's good, and hoping you'll actually want to play it. That's why we've taken the initiative to put together the definitive list of the best-licensed games around to help you make an informed decision on what to play next. And there's a little something for everyone here, whether you love horror games, beat-'em-ups, or good, old-fashioned shooters.

From the Bond series to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, check out these awesome licensed games, in no particular order.
