He guys!

So I guess you want to keep the original title of "The Chronicles of Bucky O' Neal" . . . I have another decision that I need your help with.

In this comic . . .our hero, Bucky, an 11 year old gamer who wants to make his own game review magazine called "The Prescott Game Chronicles" where he reviews the latest 8-bit (the setting for this comic in in the 80's mind you) video games and sell it at school to the students, but another student will also make a rival magazine called "Rad Gaming".

So here's my question . . . should I allow real games, say Metroid or Castlevania, or make up my own games?  Do you think I could get in trouble for having real games in my comic?

Jon

BTW the comic will finally kick off this week!

I voted for both. I think it would be a nice mix and would give you extra material to work with :)

I say fictional games will definitely add to the fun of reading the comics, but real games are great for giving us a a good sense of what you like in games and to look at them in different perspectives. Either choice is great, but I'd prefer fictional games.

I think you can get away with doing real games. Look at Pvp and Penny Arcade. They do it. But either way it goes I'm sure it'll be a good comic.

If you use real games, you can actually give a review of the game. If you use fictional games, you can still be in the mindset of a game.

Will you also be featuring a character who does "import" games?

Fictional games are more fun to me because then I have to guess the reference.

There is that haunting shadow of copyright infringement, so I would advise against a direct copy of actual games. But I don't see why Bucky wouldn't enjoy playing the role of female bounty hunter Erin Sameece or fierce Irish vampire hunter Simon Trevor MacHelsing in the games Mydroit and Eirevania.

I would parody real games and make up some fictional ones

Some examples of parodies:

Giga Man (Mega Man)
The Saga of Celida (Zelda)

As long as you file it under parody, I think you can get away with it.
