Best Video Games Imagined by Hollywood

At IGN, David Clayman and Ryan Geddes have compiled a list of the best non-existent video games that have appeared in movies and TV shows. Two are from The Simpsons, including this one:

From: The Simpsons
Notable quote: "Tell your parents, 'Buy me Bonestorm, or go to Hell!'"

This fighting game features multi-armed creatures punching each other in the face while blood and body parts rain from the sky. It is a thinly veiled reference to Mortal Kombat, which actually has the exact same feature set. Bonestorm first came into existence during the holiday season of 1995. In The Simpsons: Episode 138, Bart sees and ad for the game on television and begs Marge to buy it for him. Upon her refusal, he shoplifts the game and enters a downward spiral of guilt. Bart's ultimate redemption results in one of our other entries, Lee Carvallo's Putting Challenge (see below).
