That'd be the worst idea for a video game since E.T. was on Atari 2600. Don't get me wrong, I'm basically Kevin Smith's bitch and will mindlessly support whatever he puts out and then go on to pimp that product to all my friends in an attempt to get him paid. If he made "Mallrats 2: Let's just say this ahead of time, if you don't like it, fuck you, Ebert," I'd go see it.
But a game featuring the characters? Not a good idea. Have you ever played a video game based on a comedy? Need I remind people of the horrible NES game that was Three Stooges? What would you do? See how many explitives you could have Jay spout out by tapping the buttons as fast as you can? There's just no way this property would work as a game.
Bluntman and Chronic fall under the same category. There's nothing that you could really do to make this work on a level that both fans and gamers would enjoy it. It'd end up being as bad as Simpsons Wrestling. Heck, maybe worse. That, or it'd end up being a little too serious for its own good like it was a Spawn game or something.
As I said, that's just a terrible idea that should be put to rest. That'd be a total sell-out move the likes of which we have yet to see.
Hate to be rude, but that's a pretty dumb idea, man. Only action licenses should be made into games. Now if only I could convince Acclaim of that so they'd quit putting out Simpsons games.
