Harold “Egon” Ramis Shares His Experience Working on Ghostbusters: The Video Game

When everyone’s favorite Ghostbuster, Harold “Egon Spengler” Ramis (he is everyone else’s favorite… right?) first signed on for Ghostbusters: The Video Game, he had no idea what he was getting himself into, the writer/actor told MTV Multiplayer.

Asked how much involvement he and fellow Ghostbuster alumni Dan Aykroyd had with the game, he says he “sort of” consulted on it. “Dan consulted a lot on the story. I just kind of helped him change the dialogue.”

More challenging was when it came time to step into the sound booth and reprise his 25-year old role: “Fortunately the voice still fits,” he joked. “The uniform unfortunately doesn’t it. It was a little weird. I had no idea because I’m not a gamer. The game scripts are like 250 pages. You need all these alternatives so it took forever. A lot of it is just yelling, ‘Look out! Throw that trap, rookie!’ Stuff like that.”

We’ll all have the privilege of Egon barking orders at us when the game comes out for the anniversary of the original film this June.
