EIGHT VIDEO GAMES I WISH WOULD BE MADE!!!
You may have read an older blog post of mine: VIDEO GAMES THAT NEED A HD REMASTER/REMAKE, you can see a lot of games on that list are also on this list, these games need a remake! The difference with this list though is it’s not only remakes that I want, but also sequels or completely original ideas for games that I think would be really cool. Without further ado, let’s get started!
AN ALIEN GAME IN THE VEIN OF DEAD SPACE/ RESIDENT EVIL
Ever since I first played Dead Space way back in 2008, I thought to myself “this would be a good concept for an Alien game“. Dead Space is one of my favourite horror games of all time and how awesome would it be if someone made a horror game like that or Resident Evil but set in the Alien universe. I know that there was Alien Isolation and it had critical reviews, but I’m not a fan of stealth gameplay and although the game design was stunning, I really didn’t enjoy that game (not saying it was bad). I would love a concept more like the movie Aliens where you play as a marine, that’s on their own and has to survive with the weapons and ammo they have. Please if anyone reads this, make this game!
A HORROR/ ACTION MOVIE FIGHTING GAME MADE BY NETHEREALM
Ever since MKX, I have thought about how amazing it would be to have a fighting game made by Netherealm, but with a bunch of horror and action movie icons. I already know who I would have as the base roster, it would start off with those that had already been in an MK game:
Then I would add characters like:
– Ash Williams
– Michael Myers
– Creature from the Black Lagoon
– The Thing
– The Mummy
– The Toxic Avenger
-Killer Klown from outer space
That’s who I could think of, but I’m sure there are plenty more that could join. Add in alternate outfits (from multiple different movies, games and books), an outlandish story and Netherealm’s great gameplay, this could be something truly brilliant.
A SIMPSONS HIT AND RUN REMAKE
Many of my childhood favourite games have now been remade or at least remastered, one stands out that hasn’t been though, is: The Simpsons Hit and Run. I played this more than any other game for a solid year and is among the best of the GTA clones. Thanks to Disney+ The Simpsons will probably have a big resurgence like Friends did with Netflix not so long ago. So now is the perfect time for a remake of this game to come out.
Doom 2016 and Doom Eternal have taken my spots for my favourite first-person shooters of all time now, but for a very long time, that award belonged to TimeSplitters 2. TimeSplitters 4 was announced over a decade ago, and then silence. I’m sure there are reasons for it, but now would be a perfect time for it to come out. Doom Eternal has proven that there is still a place for arcady shooters and nostalgia is at an all time high at the moment, I truly think if they make a good campaign and an excellent multiplayer this could go down as one of the best shooters of our generation.
A MORTAL KOMBAT ACTION-ADVENTURE/ SANDBOX GAME
Since 2005 I have been crying out for another Mortal Kombat action-adventure game similar to Shaolin Monks, either that or a full sandbox game where we can explore all the realms (a fully-fledged game of Konquest mode from Deception). Mortal Kombat has some of the deepest lore in gaming and it would be so cool to have this. If Netherealm didn’t want to make this, they could give to another WB studio as long as Ed Boon oversees it. MK11 was a perfect ending for the fighting game series and I don’t need another one for a while and I would love for the next game in the series to be something different like this. It would be cool for a retelling of Deadly Alliance and Deception’s storylines and it would be great if we could create our own characters for the game. Please make this happen!
DINO CRISIS REMAKE
I’m going to be honest, I’ve never played Dino Crisis, but I’m just imagining a modern Resident Evil type game with dinosaurs, it would be epic. Capcom has been on a huge rise of success since the RE2 remake, DMC5 and RE3 coming in a few days, it would be interesting to see this game remade for modern consoles.
DEVIL MAY CRY 1 REMAKE
Speaking of Capcom remakes, DMC1 remains my favourite DMC game and for one particular reason… the atmosphere. I don’t know why the other games after DMC3 got rid of the gothic horror atmosphere of the first, but it would be incredible to see one of my favourite games with DMC5’s graphics and gameplay. I actually used to get a bit scared playing the old DMC and I would love to have that feeling again in the series.
GTA VICE CITY (EITHER REMAKE OR A NEW GAME SET IN VICE CITY AND THE 1980’s)
GTA4 revisited Liberty City, GTA5 revisited Los Santos, but we haven’t had a main series game set in Vice City since 2002!!! There are two things they could do and I would be happy with either; a remake of Vice City or a brand new GTA game set in Vice City and in the 80s. The 1980s has been in fashion for a while now and they could capitlize on this. Vice City remains my favourite in the series and if I can play another GTA game set there in the 80s with some of the decade’s best music, I will be a very happy man.
Let me know what games you would like to see remade, or created from a fresh idea in the comments. Thanks for reading and stay safe!
