10 Company Branded Video Games That Didn't Suck

Chester Cheetah: Too Cool To Fool (1992)

Platform: Sega Genesis, SNES

Publisher: Kaneko

Snack foods and video games have gone hand-in-hand since the dawn of time, so it’s no wonder that Frito-Lay would try and merge the two with a side-scrolling platformer starring their own mascot, Chester Cheetah. Released for the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo, Too Cool to Fool was a pretty standard for the genre but offered a surprising challenge within its absolutely nonsensical levels.

As it would turn out, gamer themselves weren’t too cool to fool and the game actually sold enough copies to produce a sequel the very next year. With the same horrible graphics and rather banal gameplay, Chester Cheetah: Wild Wild Quest was just as dangerously cheesy as its predecessor, proving that when it comes to powdered cheddar dust, gamers can’t get enough.
