While it's possible to make a good video game based on a licensed property, the vast majority of tie-in games feel like cheap cash-grabs, especially when they're based on blockbuster films. For this reason, it's always surprising to see an absolutely awful movie produce a fantastic video game. When the original film is good, it's easy to believe that the tie-in game will also be fun, but when the source material is rotten, most people don't expect the spin-off to be any better. How the Alien Vs. Predator series managed to spawn several several enjoyable games is a mystery for the ages.
Some of the best licensed video games came from box office flops like The Mummy (2017), or critical failures like GoldenEye (1997). Even if everyone has forgotten the horrible films, some of these games actually introduced innovative mechanics that went on to become industry standards. In a few extreme cases, it's probably more enjoyable to skip the bad movies altogether, as the games' cut-scenes manage to tell their stories in a more interesting manner.
