    Overview

    Giant monsters in the movies have been a key source of inspiration for many games. From Godzilla to King Kong and of course Giant Enemy Crabs, kaiju films have found themselves referenced or imitated in a variety of ways.

    One of the earliest examples of a kaiju themed game is the arcade classic Rampage, in which monsters reminiscent of King Kong and Godzilla were playable, as well as a giant wolf.
