Games That Don't Exist (but Really Should)



  • A proper Vampire the Masquerade sequel.

    With Bloodlines being one of the greatest games ever even with Activision and Steam sabotaging its release, I shiver to think of what could be done with modern assets and enough time for Troika to properly finish the game.



  • A Spider-Man game developed by a fantastic developer with a large budget.

    Wait...

  • @Light Yes, the Spiderman game teased at Sony E3 conference looks promising, but I would still hold my horses... Even if it's Imsoniac...



  • Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter
    A good Doctor Who game that involved all of the Doctors.



  • Paperboy 3. Nuff said.



  • Groundhog Day: The Video Game

    Doesn't even have to follow the plot of the movie!
    All you need is to dump the player in a small but super detailed open world sandbox, and let them go nuts however they'd like until the next day!

    It'd be super fun to learn a random NPC's daily routine, and then dedicate and entire day to just mess with them.

  • A sodding Pokemon home console RPG. It's about time. I'd love if it would utilise a Dark Souls style system where you could play online or offline and have other trainers come into your game and challenge you. And I'd love it if you saw all Pokemon in the wild and engage with them directly , making a seamless transition into battle.

    A man can dream.



  • @ThatMartime Directed by Peter Molyneux. :p

  • A Rock Band style game but with classical music



  • A not bad Superman Game.



  • @unholyrevenger72 I would love rocksteady to continue its Arkham universe with either a Superman or Justice League game.



  • @Vexchaneu I now want to play with a violin controller



  • I'd also like a good, single-player, open-world(s) Firefly game. Kind of a mashup between Red Dead and something like Elite, only space flight limited to the one system and stealth emphasized far above combat. I'd probably rather play as my own ship and crew rather than Serenity, just because it would open more options. Ally with the Alliance or the Browncoats, get jobs (legitimate and otherwise) from assorted seedy characters, pick up passengers, and just keep flying.

    A game like DayZ but with a AAA-game budget. I mean, seriously, there are tons of DayZ-esque games but they're all low-budget early access trash.



  • This one is a total pipe dream but that's what this thread is all about right!

    So a few years back I started playing the table top RPG Pathfinder. Pathfinder is an off shot of DnD 3.5 but what I really like about it is they have these iconic characters for each of the different classes.

    Basically what I want is a version of those DnD arcade games but set in the Pathfinder universe using their Iconic characters. The first game would be based off Pathfinders first official campaign called Rise of the Runelords. You'd basically be playing through that campaign and after each section you'd get to watch a little cutscene and make some choices about what you and your party want to do. Of course I want the game to use wonderfully animated sprites kinda like dragon crown but more in the style of Wayne Reyonlds art who does a lot of the art work for Pathfinder. As you progress you will level up and be able to put points in the different skills and learn new feats(moves).

    Man, a game like this would get me so hyped. More realistically tho, I'll settle for a new Dragons Crown or any decent side scrolling beat up in the DnD fantasy style.



  • I cannot believe that Dragon Ball Z fans have been so complacent with the video game treatment of that IP. They keep getting fighting games over and over again.

    How about a hand drawn anime style open world action-RPG. In the first game you start as Kid-Goku, a lighthearted title, you get into shenanigans with Oolong, Bulma, etc, and take on quests from the Ox King. Eventually, the game gets towards DBZ, then in the sequel it is a bit more mature and you play DBZ time frame. Quests off those side cities on Snake Way, quests on Namek.

    There's never gonna be a fun lighthearted steampunk-esk western action/adventure similar to Wild Wild West.

    Why even live?



  • Code Geass stealth action game. You could sneak around in both civilian and military-controlled areas. It could be great if they gave you enough preset options for geassing NPCs (it's a one time use mind control essentially) and designed the levels well enough. Plus, we need a good mech game. Plus, I would really enjoy any romance quests in that game.
