Quoted from Pahuffman:
Yes, but also no. A video game license could be a great idea to pull in some of the video game crowd to pinball, but I don't think Resident Evil is the way to go on this one. I'd pick something that lends itself better to pinball, like Fortnite. It's instantly recognizable with the younger crowd and the concept is simple to understand. There's also a wealth of great ideas that could be incorporated into the theme.
For the record, I've never played a single game of Fortnite, so I'm not a fanboy or anything. I'm just a realist.
I'm not a huge video game player. Some things that even I'm familiar with include Fortnite, Minecraft, and a couple others on the top 20 list of PC games.
I could see Fortnite crossing boundaries over to Pinball because it is so ubiquitous that most everyone has heard of it and, well executed, it could be a fun concept in pinball with the idea of the storm closing in while trying to take out your opponents. That could be really fun. Similarly, Minecraft is extremely well known and seems like it could have endless possibilities. I have no idea how hard it would be to license a video game for a Pinball machine but I think there is an opportunity with a few of these to end up with a fun, good selling Pinball machine.
