Games That Don't Exist (but Really Should)

  • What's a game you've always wanted to play, but nobody has ever had the sense (or lack thereof) to make?

    Mine is The Arrested Development RPG. Lead the Bluth family on an epic quest through The O.C., facing off against the press, The Alliance of Magicians, Sitwell Homes, and seals.

    Michael: "Cast a spell, GOB!"
    GOB: "Illusion, Michael!"
    (GOB tries to cast Fireball, but it fails.) "But where did the lighter fluid come from?"
    Tobias: "I'd sure like to get my hands on his staff!"
    (GOB attacks with The Sword of Destiny, but accidentally injures himself.)

    George Michael fights with a Broom Saber. Lucille's Razor Tongue attack is fuelled by vodka and does massive emotional damage. Tobias can blue himself for a defense bonus at dusk and dawn. Buster curls up in ball during combat, never attacking but taking only 1 damage per hit. You can go to the Literal Doctor for healing. Play the Mr. Manager banana stand mini-game for a break from the grind
    Seriously, I'd play the shit out of that.

  • i never watched The Arrested Development but i wouldnt mind seeing a game of thrones strategy game. I know there already is one but a new one with tv show characters.
    Other then that i want a DC comics game. Some kind of game that involves all heroes and villains form the DC universe.... not including lego.

  • @Ellis Hopefully with the Arkham series showing everybody how it's done, and assuming the Insomniac Spiderman game is good, we'll start to see more decent comics games coming out. I'll cross my fingers for ya.

  • Rockstar Cyber Punk GTA, with giant scoops of Blade Runner.

    Instead of unlocking new areas in a horizontal fashion as is currently standard, you unlock new areas vertically. You start on the ground on foot, in the slums. Look up and you see flying cars, monorails, and at night an orbital space station. As you progress you literally move up in the world. Flying cars, cross city anti-grav monorail and then finally orbital access and limited space flight.

    Would make for an unforgettable final shot of the characters (not even Ian Hinck but one playable woman this time please Rockstar) looking down on planet earth.

    p.s. if they wanted to work with Kojima and have a dash of Snatchers I certainly wouldn't mind.

  • @flower_arrangement Yeah, sign me up for some of that! I have high hopes for Cyberpunk 2077.

  • Silent Hills...

  • @Fridge-man
    And then the entire EZA forums sighed sadly.

  • Well its not that it doesn't already exist but man do I want a new Bushido Blade like game. For Honor and Chivalry Medieval Warfare are close but there really hasn't been a game like Bushido Blade since the sequel. I would love to see an updated version and my dream would be to have dynamic damage happen to the characters and clothes when they take damage. So when you slash someones leg for example, the blade cuts through the clothes and skin of the character, so at the end of the match if it was a close one you'd see it on your character. The newer MK games do this, but I would want it even more detailed. I guess one can dream.

  • Banned

    A proper sequel to Guardian Heroes.
    Fuck Guardian Heroes Advance and Code of Princess. That shit don't count.

    Also, Streets of Rage 4. I'd even accept a more fleshed out Urban Reign in it's place. I want my quality beatemups, goddammit!

  • @TheMarcV
    Oh my. Yes please, and great shout.

  • @El-Shmiablo

    Hell yes, more beat'em ups. I did enjoy Dragon's Crown when it came out and that Mother Russia Bleeds game loves cool too.

    Cyberpunk 2077

    I'd be inclined to heavy cynicism but ... CD Projekt Red ... so much potential ... let's Huber and dream together, my cybernetic implant post-human brother!

  • The Legend of Midna. Ok. Bear with me. But I reaaally think its time for an actual Zelda spinoff. Not a Triforce Heroes type deal (though it was pretty fun), but an actual game with an actual plot. It would be so so so cool to explore the worlds of Zelda outside of Hyrule like the Twilight, or to explore Hyrule as a non-Hylian. With your own special abilities and ways to tackle obstacles all the while being seen as an outsider. We've gotten a taste of this in previous games but I want more!

    Also, a Persona 2 remake with modern graphics, the day system, social links, and Persona fusion. But maintaining their, rumor, food, and negotiation systems. People think P3/4 were crazy, but they ain't seen nothing yet. Idols, school rivalries, wish granting, shadow men, demon summoning detectives, Armageddon, BLIMPS, Philemon, extreme weaboo parents, astrology, machine gun guitar cases, suppressed memories, Hitler, floating cities, and of course ex-spy ramen shops. Not to mention the traditional, facing your other self motif. P2 has it all, and I feel like the day system and social links would help with P2's pacing issues. But mainly, I want to see all of P2's wonderful insanity (and Eikichi) in glorious HD.

  • I'll throw my hat into the ring and say that a Sid Meier's Pirates game that plays a lot like Assassins Creed Black Flag minus the assassin bullshit. Make the boat combat and boarding actions a little less arcadey and more realistic, and maybe even throw in some troop management stuff from the Mount and Blade series to boot.

    Add in some of the best water physics and graphics you can get, and it'll sell like mad.

  • Ok, this will blow your minds away:
    Minecraft.... But with actual graphics!
    Say whaaaaa...??!!!

  • My idea that I've had for probably 7 years going now is a game where you're a space scavenger, but you hunt for ancient history lost to time on planets no ones lived on for thousands of years. You live on a completely urbanized, cyberpunk esque planet that either needs resources that it can no longer produce, or its straight up find old knowledge cause why not. You travel to HUGE planets. and I'm talking planets, not "land here and heres a big area" I'm talking you are exploring a PLANET. The crux of the game is, planets are big, youre gonna need a mech. You travel around in the mech and can go anywhere also on foot. the design of the planets is so that you get out of the mech to explore ruins or ancient cites/forests for said knowledge or what have you, in a 3rd person shooting type of deal. I want it to be flexible so a lot of gameplay ideas can happen there. but the BIG deal is these planets are teething with huge monsters, and you get in that mech(which you can call upon at any time) and it turns into what I would call "God Hand but completely fine tuned" very fast paced high stakes action against huge monsters with loads of combat options. all parts can be modified and if say your arm gets super damaged you could reroute power to your other arm for huge damage or a stylish super move. So basically you have a low ground level exploration on foot and then having high octane fighting in your mech at a large scale. Never gonna happen.

    Never gonna happen.

    It totally should though. I'd sure play it.

  • I've always wanted a good Ranma 1/2 RPG. I'd want it to be like Persona 4. I love the idea of chilling out in the Tendo dojo with P-Chan.
