Shaq Fu

We're sorry if you've just sprayed coffee all over your screen upon reading the headline above. We never thought that this day would come, either. And, to be fair, it might all just be circumstantial happenstance.

On the other hand, Shaq Fu -- one of the worst games of all time -- might be about to get a sequel.

Mine O’Mine, the company in charge of Shaq.com, have filed multiple trademarks for something called Shaqfighter. According to Siliconera, the trademarks cover "video games, online games, computer game software, and action skill games".

The original "action skill" game was a fighting title starring The Big Aristotle himself. And it sucked. Badly. In fact, in terms of basketball-legend-turned action-hero games, it's probably the worst example we could possibly think of. It's like the Platonic Form of a terrible game.

I blame Paul Cuisset and EA, naturally.

Given that there's already a website in existence pledged too destroy any and all remaining copies of Shaq Fu that are still out there, would it really make sense to release a sequel.

Hell, you're a gaming audience. Would you buy it?

Well, maybe if Shaq did an intro rap.

Either "Shaqfighter" is a Shaq-Fu sequel, or it won a hijacked online vote to find the name of the next game in the Medal of Honor series

To be honest I'd avoid it like the plague either way
