Games/Franchises that should make a comeback



  • I too miss Resistance. The first holds a special place in my heart, and while I dug 2's story, dropping the weapon wheel for only two weapons was annoying. 3 looks fantastic still, but it feels like it's missing something. Retribution is ok and Burning Skies is passable (both are better with New Game Plus bonuses), but the true hidden gems are actually the two books. Those are some pretty good stories.



  • Chrono series. I want a proper chrono trigger sequel or at least a remaster



  • Just dawned on me but a Twisted Metal Battle Royal game might be interesting.
    50-60 vehicles, keep special abilities for each one.
    Idk could be interesting.



  • @dmcmaster I'm kind of over the BR craze (though Apex came out of nowhere and is honestly fucking amazing) but that would actually be pretty awesome.



  • @dmcmaster I'm in. You've got me.



  • Not big into BR myself, but something about a giant vehicle based BR game with a map special made to ensure crazy vehicular scenarios sounds amazing.
    And unlike every other BR game the focus of vehicles would probably kill alot of down time.



  • I would say Streets of Rage, but 4 got announced in the summer.

    Other games: Viewtiful Joe, Dino Crisis, any IP that needs to be pried from Konami, and Power Stone.



  • @brawlman Power Stone would be fucking amazing.
    I so very much want a proper Guardian Heroes sequel. I know the three tiered branching path side scrolling coop beatemup strategy RPG fighter is a crowded genre right now, but I really think Treasure could knock it out of the park.



  • @el-shmiablo I'd have fate in Treasure, but they screwed up big time with Advance Guardian Heroes on the GBA. It's the only sequel to one of their games I don't like. I would not mind a proper sequel to GH, but unless it takes place in the distant future or alternate universe, I prefer that game as one-off. Especially with the multiple endings. If that never comes to fruition, at least there is Code of Princess. That game was developed by former employees from Treasure.

    Power Stone 2 I played a lot back at my local mall, and at friends who owned a Dreamcast. 2 was mt first Power Stone game.



  • @el-shmiablo
    Hell I wish Treasure would actually make more games in general, think thier last game that wasn't a port or remaster was Sin & Punishment 2.



  • @dmcmaster That is correct. Treasure was always known for developing games on their own time and pace. 9 years is enough Treasure, ust make a knew game for the PS4 or Switch. We'll take it.



  • I would even settle for a port of Guardian Heroes HD to modern consoles.



  • I'm really in the mood recently for a new Phantasmagoria game. I loved one, and had a good time with 2 back when I did beta testing for Sierra. Doesn't have to be point and click, but more of an adventure-style game in the 90's Cronenburg body-horror weidness genre.



  • I desperately want a sequel to Spongebob: Battle for Bikini Bottom. I count that as one of the best mascot platformers ever, and a sequel in today's tech would be great. It would have to only reference the first 3 seasons though, which is even more unlikely than the game coming out.



  • @capnbobamous

    Ever tried Spongebob Return of the Flying Dutchman? Its lowkey the best Spongebob game. Its in-line with a lot of the generic 3D platformers of the PS1/N64/PS2/GC era BUT it was solid.

    It's kinda like those Rugrats games back in the day.



  • @dipset I don't recall if I've played that one. I remember feeling like no Spongebob game could top Battle for Bikini Bottom, so I stopped playing them. I was burned too much by all the bad ones.



  • Hulk Ultimate Destruction sequel on modern hardware, nough said



  • @dmcmaster

    Prototype 3



  • Idk if this counts, but I'm listening to the Lost Odyssey soundtrack and I really wish they'd port it widely to modern consoles so I can play it. Bring it to Switch, Mircrosoft! Had the same thought with the Dark Cloud soundtrack the other day, too. Two JRPGs I've heard are great but don't have the means to play.



  • Lost Odyssey is on X1, hell think its X1 Enhanced too , also it's $10
