There was almost a Metallica video game. Well not really. According to ” The game took place in a post-apocalyptic setting and was said to feature ‘music and inspiration from Metallica.’” The trailer was included in some versions of 2003′s St. Anger, and some sketches reveal the band members as characters. That game never materialized, but we did get a Metallica Guitar Hero so I guess that’s ok, right?
