Dream Games, or, OH MAN IT'D BE SO COOL

Metzger MeisterMetzger Meister It Gets Worsebefore it gets any better.Registered User regular
We've all had that thought.

"Why hasn't anyone made this game?"

Or, "Aw man wouldn't it be cool if [game studio] did that?"

Well this is the thread for discussion of and relating to that sort of thing!

For example, I really want a pirate game. Like, Assassins Creed: Black Flag was really cool and all but at the end of the day it just felt like another AC game with some slightly-more-silly-than-usual accents thrown in there for giggles. I'm talking a truly factually accurate simulation of the golden age of piracy, with hardcore rpg elements and maybe a little bit of wackiness thrown in for flavor. Like a Kraken or some such. Hell, I'd even settle for a decidedly fantasy-orientated game, as long as it depicts life aboard a sailing vessel and big crazy naval battles.

THE DLC COULD BE OTHER OCEANS PEOPLE. FRIGGIN CHINESE AND NORTH AFRICAN PIRATES. YOU COULD MAKE EVERY SINGLE MONEY.

Another thing I want is a persistent, open-world MMO using Google Earth data, set in a post-apocalypse United States. Think more Mad Max than Walking Dead. You'd have several classes, people specced for combat or scavenging etc, with the ultimate end-game goal of establishing a permanent home for you and your little band of wanderers.

Tell me about your dreams, friends. Share them with me.

    I've been logging dreams I've had lately and sometimes I'll go back and read what I wrote down and just kind of be like "this is total nonsense I have to stop eating before I go to bed."

    I also think that historical settings are really under-utilized in the gaming industry.

    My buddy Justin, back home in Wyoming, had an idea for a game that's basically just ancient mythology (Greek, Roman, Egyptian, etc) as an RPG.

    Like Skyrim meets Titan Quest with Bioware style party interaction.

    A CKII style strategy game set in a bronze age/pre-bronze age setting might be pretty fucking cool.

    Like foundation of the first civilization and the initial pushback against it with outside tribes and stuff

    Could be cool and educational.

    Also, Lionhead was producing this game called BC for a while that looked SO. DAMN. COOL. It was like a tribal, caveman thing but there were also dinosaurs and stuff and you'd gain powers and special traits by absorbing other tribes and stuff, and you'd have persistent tribe members who develop their own stories and battle scars and whatnot and I was so sad when they cancelled it.

    I should have known better than to trust Molynieux.

    Sure, like Second Life, just with monsters trying to kill you and monsters you can go kill.

    An extremely deep and dynamic stealth game that requires Herculean levels of patience, planning, and attention to detail

    You shoot a bullet, you need to find and collect the casing, and remove the bullet from the target to prevent any potential ballistics matches

    You get shot, you have to sneak to the janitor's closet to get some industrial cleaner and go at the bloodstains with a black light to make sure you dont leave anything behind

    A game that literally no one other than me would enjoy

    Vampire : masquarade but with Dishonoured teleports/spells/movement and Deus Ex HR conversations/skill trees. (or Alpha Protocol conversations which would be even better)

    That type of game with fewer loadscreens and a more open city would be amazing.

    I want a game that is basically Payday 2, but set inside the Mass Effect multiplayer universe.

    I want to heist as a crew of aliens. I want to rob banks in the Citadel, protect Red Sand shipments on Illium, steal secrets on Noveria, shoot it out with C Sec, ambush Spectres with a hail of biotics.

    I feel like my dream is too beautiful to ever exist.

    I want a straight up space exploration game. Like, you fly from system to system and land on planets and drive around on them looking for stuff.

    Like the Mako stuff in the first Mass Effect but better and more in depth with the exploration. Leaving the vehicle and entering caves and shit. Finding new species and minerals and junk.

    There doesn't need to be any combat.

    It's not out yet, but yeah, when it's out, it sounds like exactly what you want!

    It's a big procedurally generated galaxy that would take millions of actual years to explore the entirety of, and while there is some combat, you're not really required to do any of it. It's entirely possible to play the game as a pacifistic explorer and discoverer.

    It comes out next year and its pretty much exactly what you're describing

    The planets are procedurally generated and iirc there's something like a quadrillion different planets

    Lastly, a stupid idea.

    A Batman game. That's not actually a Batman game. But totally is.

    Instead you play as a former member of the League of Assassins that's lost a family member to the Joker and has sworn to get "revenge".

    Mostly because, from Batman's prospective, his rogue's aren't really all that scary. Don't get me wrong, they are! But playing as Batman means, well, you're Batman. The rogue's know you, and they know the worse they'll get is a buttkicking and thrown into Arkham. And you're Batman. Batman won't lose, and isn't supposed to.

    You don't see how they react to people NOT Batman, or, a dangerous element that isn't him.

    Making a player created character/original character would showcase how dangerous they actually are with a sort of scaling morality/difficulty system.

    You can take a Batman approach, and the fights would be difficult, but managable. Side with Batman and it becomes even easier.

    Or you can go the hard, bullshit, this game is cheating route and attempt to take them down with lethal means, where the game switches to a near horror bent.

    Someone like Killer Croc wouldn't be too hard to take down a non-lethal way, since you aren't endangering his life. Come at him guns blazing with edge weapons though, and he would know the fight is for keeps and will respond IN KIND. A pushover boss like Killer Croc becomes a fight for survival.

    Of course this would be based on the Arkham system with a completly open world Gotham ala Skyrim with actual interiors for some buildings.

    Okay I have written enough about my fan-fiction.

    OH! Lastly you have to keep a low profile or you get Batman's attention(as the game progresses, you will anyway, but the longer you stall, the better chance you have of him not just showing up, kicking your ass, and throwing you in jail.)

    You can fight him. He will cheat. You will lose.
