Comments

Nitro Rad : I never knew about Stranglehold 2! I really liked that game back when I was in middle school, would have loved to play a co-op sequel.

Bryce McKenzie : Canceled Video Game movies? It's probably for the best

what's it to ya : can we just have dazz narrate all dykg videos?

Hemang Chauhan : 0:10 Netflix Geralt

Dad_Shoes : Dwayne Johnson should have played Tim Goodman in Detective Pikachu.

Zombie Hunter : Still waiting for the Midway Cinematic Universe

Retro-Spect : Calling "The Rock" "Dwayne Johnson" sounds soooo weird

Simon Richards : Dazz: The most soothing voice on the internet.

Slingo Dingo : >not mentioning the nightmare creatures movie cancellation feels bad

Tuli0hWut : Spy hunter did have quite a sum of script rewrites, but it’s not as worse as Super Mario Bros. Now THAT had too many major script revisions. They ended up hiring two directors that had no idea what they were working with. And the movie ended up flopping because of those two.

JR Texx : The Suffering was gonna get a movie? Damn I would have loved thst the games was great

Riffer : What game is at the end when they're showing the top patrons?

Mace 2.0 : I've heard about the Spy Hunter film for years. It ain't worth the wait after 15+ years of development hell.

Karma Sen : I recommend you guys Watch Critikal's "review" of SPYHUNTER.

Doom2Guy : Surprised you didn't mention Enter the Matrix, which was part of a similar game/movie cross project. Too bad the game sucked

jphpwinner : @5:47 The spelling is right, but Stephen Fung's surname is more like "Foong". (just saying. cos if my surname was Fung, I wouldn't want someone to say it out like "fungus!")

Hemang Chauhan : Game/movie tie-ins fascinate me, because sometimes I feel like a movie should have a decent game version or vice versa after experiencing it. Keeps me engaged with the property.

Kyle S. : 3:08 Is that a pun on yesterday’s big release?

Macy Godwin : Actually, regarding the planned Suffering film, they did have an actor set to play Torque - Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Stanley Chaney : SHEEEIT Midway, 3DO, Acclaim, and LJN made some bad games! I wonder what games they would've made if didn't go bankrupt?!

lazy bacon : With FIFTEEN years of development hell, are people really clamoring this much for a Spy Hunter movie?

cholesterolGamer : Wait a Kirby mode where you can't inhale enemies? They already had Milky Way Wishes where enemies don't give you any abilities (except certain special ones like Mic and Crash) so there was already a mode with heavy reliance on Copy Essences. How would you even beat bosses in that mode? I mean, yeah, you can grab copy essences to grab an ability, but I mean what if you get hit and you lose it? You wouldn't even be able to suck it back up. Normally you'd have to inhale and spit out whatever projectile they throw at you but with no inhaling, that wouldn't work. Unless they all do the thing that one computer boss does where it'll randomly spawn a copy essence. Huh. Nevermind I guess that could work. Now I wanna see a rom hack with this idea. With Kirby 64 music because Kirby 64 music is freaking cool.

Pedro Magalhaes : Paul WS Anderson was brought on board... STOP

Joel Montoya : All of them were basically generic action title with generic action movie ideas. I think it's for the best they didn't pan out cause I'm sure the movies would be as forgotten as these games are by now, and probably not worked out great in the first place. It's not like any of em scream "passion project" as mush as "marketing line."

EnglishChikenLoner : HEEEELLLPP how do i cook a lasagna??????

TheCreepypro : this is hilarious cause I remember that Spyhunter remake, Wheelman, and Stranglehold and thought it was weird that all three were made like they were tied into movies even though they were not super fascinating to find out all about it after the fact

SummerWave : Keep Dwayne Johnson away from gaming

AnimeWolfgamer : I would of love to see a spy hunter film with the rock.

FNHot : Im offended they felt the need to explain who Stan Winston is. I mean Im dumb, but come on ...

Buderus69 : Everytime I hear a 'however' I start seeing shrimps... I wonder why

Isrel156 : Mark Swift? Can we get a confirmation whether or not he is related to Phil Swift of the Flextape fame? If so, how?

Robin Paine : You'd think after that many botches they'd just call it a day

SteampunkC0wb0y : At least we got DOOM.

Nicolas D. Madsen : ok no sly cooper still hard to find info on the sly cooper movie

TheCartoonGamer8000 : Ah, don't sweat it -- you'll get that 10 minute threshold next time! :P

Jack Cade : Where Midway failed Cygames prosper.

MaxN'Motion : Did you know? When Midway again lost their director and replaced him with Waluigi from Smash Bros. Then Shrek. Then the narrator for DYKG. Then Mr. Game and Watch. Then President Trump. You see where this is going? Also that Kirby fact sounds terrifying tbh lol

matt ツ : Wait… it's The Rock and Dwayne Johnson are the same person?!!

shelby ladra : Interviewer: ok Paul w.s Anderson since you are going to write midways spyhunter film... I'm curious what is it about? Anderson: well it's going to have everything that got people to love the games. Interviewer: oh that sounds promising. Anderson: And the main character is going to star my wife :) Interviewer: but the main character is a male :( Anderson: I know Interviewer: oh no Midway: 🤦‍♂️ Hollywood: will replace Anderson right away :(

KyEz0aR_ : Thats a lot of writers.

John the Average Gamer : I remember this story back in the day

Sky Yurt : Stranglehold was an awesome game

sans matej : Notification squad where you at

Coophack6584 : Unseen was Devoured by DYKG

Ciro : 4:00 Mortal Kombat easter egg?

Danny Beane : Good Lord I needed a flow chart to follow all that.

Serious Spike Sam : Glad to see that Tequila has taken some lessons from Max Payne.

Jarrod Blake : DYKG, can you do a video on Deltarune?

D-Ramz : The suffering was so good! Both are very underrated
