There are a few Tron Video games. Do they expand the story of Tron? If so, do those expansions considered canon?
Tron: Evolution is apparently canon for in between the first and second movies. Tron 2.0 (killer app) was questionably canonical until the second movie came out.
Teeeeechnically during the Tron ARG there was a version of Space Paranoids which we could play, which would technically make it a canon game even without any storyline.
None of the other Tron games have enough story to be canon.
There were only 2 arcade games I've ever seen. 1, was the most fun-Discs of Tron. You were on a platform or 2 or 3. Your opponent on the other side. You'd throw discs back and forth off the walls, and use a shield to block un-dodgeable projectiles. The other, had a few different scenarios-piloting a light cycle being one of them. I failed to finish either game, but there is nothing mentioned on the arcade cabinets regarding any story. The games themselves are just games with the movie title thrown in to generate sales. Anything after 1990/95 would be new to me-such as Kingdom Hearts 2 or whatever anyone else is talking about. Those first 2 games did come out back in the 80s, and they were completely different.
Here is an article on the TRON Wikia concerning what is and isn't canon. Apparently, the only canon game is TRON: Evolution. To sum it up, the following are canon:
- TRON: Legacy
- TRON: Evolution (Game)
- TRON: Uprising
The following are not canon:
- TRON 2.0 (Game)
- TRON 2.0: Killer App (Game)
- TRON: The Ghost in the Machine
- TRON: Evolution - Battle Grids (Game)
(Note the events in TRON: Betrayal and Evolution differ in how Clu took over the TRON system, with TRON: Evolution depicting the events to be very close to the film.
According to Dave (a friend of Steven Lisberger, the creator and director of TRON), TRON is the only story that is truly canon. TRON 2.0's storylines differ from Lisberger's original intentions of the characters and the story, therefore, TRON 2.0 should be considered as its own canon. TRON: Legacy effectively ignores most of the material shown in TRON 2.0.
