What If Mad Max: Fury Road Was a 90's Arcade Game

Besides a 1990 NES game and Outlander, there wasn’t really a Mad Max video game back in the day that was just as good as the first three movies. If anything, the second movie’s plot had potential for a super arcade game.

But now, in the way that only the Internet can provide, we can imagine "what if..." with a super cool imagining of just what might have been...

Of course, it would look sweet.

A fast run-and-gun style side-scroller, just like Konami’s classic Sunset Riders, or even something like the Metal Slug series with a Mad Max setting would have been amazing. CineFix’s latest video imagined a game like that, and how it’d look:

Well, add this to the list of these that they have done that make me ache for the fact that there is nothing like this available right now.

Come to think of it, with the sheer amount of throwback indie 2D sidescrollers that are released on a daily basis these days (accurate estimate: 100 billion per hour) it is surprising that at least one or two hasn't been inspired by one of the coolest, most iconic action series of all time.

Guess it's just hard for anyone but George Miller to come up with awesome post-apocalyptic gasoline death machines.
