    Jack Friedman founded LJN. LJN was a toy company that also published video games in the 80's and 90's. I remember games like Friday the 13th and Back to the Future had horrible controls and just down-right shitty, alot of their games were.

    Friedman had left before LJN was bought out by Acclaim as their tie-in division IIRC.

    Even after he left, they put out Spider-Man/Venom: Maximum Carnage, which has always been a guilty pleasure of mine, and Alien 3 for SNES, which is one of the better platform shooters on the SNES in my book and arguably the best game yet based on the franchise.
