History of Ghostbusters Games
The first game in the Ghostbusters franchise was based on the movie of the same name and released in 1984 for several different platforms and most widely known as a NES game of 1988.
Despite many controversial reviews, the game was a success and set the beginning of the franchise.
Soon after that, in 1987, Data East created an arcade game based on the cartoon series of the same name – The Real Ghostbusters. It featured cooperative multiplayer gameplay and received many releases on different platforms.
Later, the sequels came in. Ghostbusters II and New Ghostbusters II, mostly NES games, with several ports to other platforms, and were noted to be exceptionally hard to complete.
There were many more titles in the Ghostbusters franchise. Starting with a completely new, Sega version, and moving to an entirely different Extreme Ghostbusters line for the Gameboy, the game itself started to take many different shapes and variations. It has stood through the years as a memorable and important piece of video game history, taking its side by the related movies and animated series.
The franchise lasts up to this day and does not seem to lose its popularity. So, in 2009, Ghostbusters: The Video Game was launched for all the latest consoles and the PC and was followed up by a sequel Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime in 2011. Also, in 2012 a game called Ghostbusters: Paranormal Blast was released for mobile devices.
There is no prediction on if the franchise will ever fade out, but one fact surely will always stay true: it all began in 1984.
