The Week In Games: Jason Returns, Again

You can never really escape Jason Voorhees. The masked slasher from The Friday The 13th films is returning again this week. A new edition of The Friday The 13th game is heading to the Nintendo Switch.

I wonder if in 20 or 30 years people will still be making and watching Jason films. How many times can you reboot and remake this franchise? Is he even that scary anymore after spending decades being lampooned in cartoons, TV shows, and other films? It’s like the Xenomorphs from the Alien movies. At somepoint, these scray monsters become walking parodies of themselves.
