Video Games

On this page you can find some info about Van Damme's game history.  As you allready knew or heard before,
there is a very formiller character in the Mortal Kombat games His name is johhny cage and the story behind this character has allot
 of common with the story of JCVD because this charachter was supposed to be Van Damme but it did'nt went well when
 the creators asked JCVD to cooperate with them...


Originally, creators Ed Boon and John Tobias wanted to create a video game starring Jean-Claude Van Damme
with a digitized version of the action star fighting villains. Unfortunately, Van Damme was already in negotiations with
another video game company (that game was never realized either) so that plan was scrapped. They decided instead to
 create a game loosely based on Enter the Dragon (1973). Van Damme's likeness is still clearly seen in the character
of Johnny Cage: a Caucasian martial arts movie star whose signature move is leg-split. Ironically, Van Damme would
make his digitized video game debut in Street Fighter: The Movie (1994/II) (VG)
