  • "Ghostbusters: The Video Game" takes place two years after "Ghostbusters II," around Thanksgiving in 1991, with the Ghostbusters team training the player's character while investigating paranormal activities in New York.

    The story occur during Thanksgiving day 1991. Two years after the events of "Ghostbusters II." The Ghostbusters, now official city contractors, are training a new recruit, whom Dr. Venkman insists they simply call "Rookie", so they don't get too attached, in case something should happen to the new hire while testing out experimental equipment. A large PKE shockwave then hits New York City, and sends the team on a variety of calls to capture ghosts that result from it, including Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Throughout these calls, they are hounded by Walter Peck, now head of the Paranormal Contracts Oversight Commission (PCOC, pronounced "peacock") as appointed by Mayor Jock Mulligan, who warns them about causing too much damage in their ghost capturing activities. The Ghostbusters discover through a series of adventures and encounters with museum curator Dr. Ilyssa Selwyn (Alyssa Milano) that Ivo Shandor, the architect who designed 55 Central Park West that was once used to summon Gozer, had also designed a network of tunnels to channel ectoplasmic slime through the city, including specific Shandor-renovated buildings acting as nodes on a mandala, as a means to merge the real world with the Ghost World and bring forth another Great Destructor like Gozer. The Ghostbusters help to destroy the nodes and capture the node guardians at the Sedgewick Hotel, the New York Public Library, and the Museum of Natural History. At the last node in the middle of the Hudson River they discover a mansion on an island rising from the water. ...

    Did You Know? Dana Barrett, who was played by Sigourney Weaver in the (1984) "Ghostbusters" film, was originally in the script, but Sigourney Weaver turned down the offer to play the role. However, Weaver changed her mind when the rest of the films cast, including Bill Murray, were signed on, but by that time, Dana had been written out and the part had been rewritten as Dr. Ilyssa Selwyn (played by Alyssa Milano).
