Missing a whole line of shark games from the flash era.  Shark attack: wherever I think?  Those were quite fun.

When I was a young lad, I rented a Jaws game from Blockbuster. It was about 88 or 89. It was basic, you know things were kinda sucky back then, but it was fun. I remember my mom woke up to pee in the middle of the night, and I was still up playing on Friday night/Saturday morning. She unplugged my Nintendo and told me to go to bed. NOW!

I'm surprised no one has done a roleplaying game where you are living in an underwater base and all your co-workers are mysteriously disappearing one by one. Then, at the end of the game, you solve the mystery. They were killed and eaten by a giant shark and you were the shark all along!

I actually had that. I must've played for 50 hours at least over the years. Never figured out how to get the shark stabby mode to actually kill jaws, but I accidentally unlocked it a couple times. That, Ninja Turtles, Friday the 13th, Ghoul Scool, Nightmare on Elm Street, Battle of Olympus... a lot of NES games all had these quirks you had to know to win, but I never figured them out. Now you can just go on Youtube and it's easy. Back then you were stuck unless you knew someone else who knew

GTA 5 - Play as a Fish (Shark, Dolphin, Orca, Stingray & more) [PS4 & Xbox One]

Cetacean needed.

That would actually be a vast improvement to the plots of Final Fantasies 11 through 15.

I like the Miami Shark, Sydney Shark and New York Sharkseries of Flash games.

Those are it!  Danke, I couldn't remember the name properly.  Nothing like dragging down airliners as a great white.

There were shells that the basic creatures dropped.  Collect enough shells and you upgrades.  Eventually you could upgrade to a mini-sub that shot torpedoes and little bombs.  You didn't find Jaws so much as he found you (the fin chased you on the open world and then sucked you into the level to fight).

is that from the really, very incredibly old and funny Monty Python screensaver/cd-rom?

Yeah, Jaws while a great film down't really lend itself to a video game.

Missing a couple from today's ERA as well. Like Ark: Survival Evolved. There's tons of bad things in the water, especially giant sharks. Mostly Mosasaurs, but Megoldons are there too.

A new one that came out recently called Stranded Deep. Had a damn shark flip my life raft as I was traveling to a new island. Didn't know they'd do that.

For Contra. For Commando it was just ABBA.
