Shaq wants YOU to fund a Shaq-Fu video game sequel

Published Add your comment

I'm not joking. Shaq-Fu is one of the worst video games in history. Especially in licensed video game history, which has a large share of turkeys.

If you don't remember it, Shaq-Fu wasn't even a basketball game. It was a mid 90s beat 'em up where you clumsily fall in to another dimension after speaking to a kung-fu master to save a young boy from a terrifying evil mummy…

See? Terrible!

However, the Sacramento Kings stake owner, former basketball behemoth and rapper doesn't want to pay for making it.

Shaquille O'Neal, being the shrewd businessman he is, has started a Kickstarter project to raise funds for a sequel to the game to be called "Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn."

Whilst Shaq himself is a legend, the legendary status of the game could be enough for people to fund it, purely to see how bad it is.

What next? Raymond Felton's Duck Hunt? Metta World Peace's Defenders of the Planet? LA Lakers and the basket of success?

Those games I just made up probably have more chance of being made that Shaq-Fu 2… But people, let's not forget, are very, very silly. Expect it to never happen.
