Disney has been making video games since 1981 when Nintendo R&D1 released Mickey Mouse for the Game & Watch. From those humble beginnings, games based on Disney properties have been pumped out in a near-continuous stream consisting of a wide range of titles on just about every gaming system ever created.
Unfortunately, when a company has hundreds of gaming products based on its most popular characters, odds are, they aren't all going to be blockbusters. As it happens, there are a ton of terrible Disney games, a fair amount of decent ones, and only a small number of games players absolutely loved.
In reality, it's no easy task to take a beloved character and import them into a medium that is different from the one they were created in, and when you add the fact that the game needs to be fun to play, the challenge becomes easy to see.
There has certainly been a fair share of poorly made Disney video games over the years, but these ten represent something different. Anyone who considers themselves to be both a die-hard gamer and uber Disney fan has probably played every one of these.
This list only includes Disney-created properties, so no Marvel, Fox, or Lucasfilm titles will be found!
