Deadpool: The Movie - The Videogame

With a Deadpool movie floating somewhere out there, and a script leak and what-not, I find myself crossing my fingers that we get a tie-in game. Now, hear me out, I know tie-in games are usually shit, but I love the character so much, and the games he's shown up in thus far just haven't scratched that itch, that I'd love to see it. What say you?

Movie games generally suck, so no.

If it was a silly fourth wall breaking shooter/beat-em up I would buy it.

I would prefer a Deadpool game over movie but not both.

I would definitely dig a game that consistently broke the fourth wall.  I love the MvC3 trailer of Deadpool using the health bar to beat down an opponent.

Deadpool should have a videogame that doesn't tie into any movie called Deadpool the Movie the Videogame.

Feel free to shoot me here, but I could see a Deadpool game working in a Matt Hazard kind of way. I actually enjoyed playing through Eat Lead just because of the humor. Granted it wasn't a laugh riot all through, but I really appreciated the premise. And what's wrong with "Deadpool: the Movie - The Videogame"? Yeah, that'd be a shitty title, but I'd love to see it on the "press start" screen. 
 
Oh I get it...Yeah, that'd be an awful movie title. How about: "Deadpool: the Movie - The Film"?

Maybe if they got Raven to do it. I mean Origins was an alright game. Definitely not like the rest of them movie games (am looking at you Iron-Man 2)

Meh, I just say play through Metal Gear Solid (Again?) and Eternal Darkness for your 4th wall breaking needs. I'd rather not have to sit through a full game featuring a Deadpool that will more than likely be cycling through the same dialog throughout the course of the game.

The only way I would play the game would be if it met a few conditions.
 
1. It is titled Deadpool: The Movie - The Game (Based on the full length film Deadpool: The Movie). Also, the film can not be called Deadpool: The Movie. In fact, there shouldn't even be a movie. 
 
2. He talks in speech bubbles. The speech bubbles are real, tangible objects that manifest in the environment and can be interacted with.  This should be one of the MANY ways the game breaks the fourth wall.
 
3. He is voiced by Will Arnett. I have always imagined Deadpool as having a gasoline and gravel type of voice, and Mr. Arnett is a perfect match for the role. 
 
4. It is rated M and is violent and crazy as fuck. Maybe not Bayonetta level of crazy, but...wait...NOPE, it SHOULD be Bayonetta level of crazy and should be God of War style violent. 
 
5. Don't take the mask off. I am sick and tired of Marvel constantly wanting to show their character's faces and would like for the mask to stay on. Especially after what they did to ol' DP in that Origins movie/abomination. Don't show his face. Ever. We know he is ugly sin, leave it at that. 
 
6. He is voiced by Will Arnett.

I agree with your points 3, 4, and 6. The rest, I'm afraid I disagree.

I don't know, I don't really associate gore with Deadpool. Violence yes, and dismemberment sure, not buckets of gore. Although I did love the new Splatterhouse...

A sandbox game for Deadpool? Hm...interesting concept. I'd never even considered that.

The guys at Activision that are making the Spider-Man games should make the next Deadpool game. I think it should be original vs a film adaptation.

It depends who made it. The last couple of Spiderman games have been alright, and Raven's Wolverine game was pretty great. 
Get one of those teams on it, and keep Sega the hell away from it, and it could turn out good.

Yeah, it would have to be ultra-violent, super-referential, and really push the M-rating.  Also, it would be cool if Deadpool was beating up (and winning) fights against superheros instead of another boring game fighting mercenaries or something.

I disagree with his voice and mask. 
 
Deadpool is always taking his mask off and not everyone knows that his skin is messed up.  It's not like he was ever in a popular Saturday morning cartoon. 
 
Deadpool has never had a gruff/gravely voice in any of the video games or animated movies he's been on.  In the games and Marvel animations he's always sounded more like a psychotic Peter Parker, and that fits him I think.  Especially when paired with someone like Cable.

If they could pull off something competent if uninspired, a la the Capt. America or Wolverine game, and splattered it with Deadpool-ness, I could actually see it working pretty well. Not getting hopes up though.
