As Yehuda pointed out the other day, The Goonies 25th Anniversary Collector’s Edition will include a pack-in board game. I can pretty much guarantee it’s going to be terrible. Pack-ins like that normally are.

What if pack-ins weren’t terrible? What if some thought was actually put into them, instead of an afterthought? I could imagine an amazing pack-in game that complemented a great movie, video game, book, etc… nicely.

Even though I know that Goonies game is going to suck…that doesn’t stop me from wanting that 25th Anniversary Edition. The whole package looks too cool.

I guess I’m part of the problem. I know the pack-ins are junk, but the cool factor gets to me.

What are your thoughts on pack-ins? How can we, as consumers, demand better quality pack-ins?
