  1. cool

  2. When is someone gonna smarten up and make a new FRIDAY THE 13TH video game? Come on Microsoft, Sony! Get on that shit!!

  3. You know I’ve asked that same question for years, the closest they’ve come in recent years is rip-off characters in games such as Manhunt, and you can find the Jason attire in some of the Grand Theft Auto games.

  4. This is all the more reason why game companies should be jumpin’ at the chance to make these games. It’s not like we’re all still playing on the NES or something, ya know?

    Could you imagine how cool it would be play a Friday the 13th game that’s laid out like Resident Evil? For that matter, let’s not stop at Jason. Let’s have Michael Myers, Leatherface and Pinhead too! (Not all in the same game, though.) These game companies would be sitting on gold mines if they’d talk to the movies companies about making this happen.

  5. Question: If a Friday The 13th game were to be made (with the gears of war engine…hmmm, glory be!)…what would be the best way to go? As a random consellor, wandering around a camp with Jason tracking you? Or…to BE Jason and to kill as many sexed up teens as possible? Ha ha, I know which one sounds more fun!

  6. I’d like to play as Jason and get points for creative or group kills.
