If you could completely control a gaming studio and make a game, what would it be and how would you make it the way you want? Also, how much would you be willing to pay for that game?

This can be for as many games as you feel passionate about. Make that prequel/sequel/spinoff/etc. game you always wanted! These can either be unrealistic or realistic, have fun with it.

Hope this is fun and I'm looking forward to seeing creative ideas and passion projects.

I'll get us started, here are the ones I can think of for now, you can just do the same format if you want:

1) Paper Mario The Thousand-Year Door sequel, with all the references to Super Paper Mario, Mario and Luigi: Paper Jam, Sticker Star, and Color Splash. Those games happened, so they should be canon, but I want the style of the game to be like TTYD. In fact, I'd like it to be Mario RETURNING to Rogueport and Glitz Pit and all those places after saving various other kingdoms/world/dimensions in the games that happened after TTYD. Like a heroes welcome return, only to discover a new enemy he must defeat.

The amount I'd Pay: $200

2) Star Fox Aventures 2 - I absolutely loved the original game, despite the hate it received. I'd love for the next game to build on the stories that have happened since the original came out and for, hopefully, it ending with a greater threat than Andross being out there. Maybe we find out Andross was the precursor to something far worse? I'd love this regardless.

The amount I'd Pay: $80

3) Knights of the Old Republic canon remake. Simple, make it fit into the new canon and pave the way for a sequel game described below.

The amount I'd Pay: $150

4) Darth Bane game establishing the rule of two. All of these theories about how Palpatine survived all began with the Darth Bane trilogy (in my opinion, the best star wars books ever written). It's time Darth Bane, slayer of Jedi and Sith alike with the thought bomb, got his credit in an open world star wars RPG game!

The amount I'd pay: $190

I paid $200 for Metroid Prime. That was all I needed to play on the Game Cube to make it worth it to me. I would pay $400 for the Switch 2 with a Metroid game that was as expansive or as ambitious as Breath of the Wild, even if there weren't going to be other titles released for it.

$400 for a console and a game doesn't seem like a crazy number. Or do you mean $400 for each?



Oh.... I came in expecting something completely different, I'm fairly sure a game which featured what goes on in some of my dreams would never be able to be rated by the ESRB.... I mean... there's only so much murder any game company can try and laugh off at E3 right?

Still though, I would pay a fair amount to be able to replay my dreams as a video game during my waking hours... like cost of a VRheadset and few 2080ti's to render all those bodies. Does liquid still have a large impact on hardware? might need some more 2080's for the blood.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

$60 for the game of my dreams sounds reasonable.
$400 for collector's edition.

My dreams are cheap.

My point was that I wouldn't need it to play another game other than Metroid Prime of the Wild for me to be happy plopping down $400.  But to your question...yeah, I'd help fund an expansive Metroid Prime for $400 if that was what it took to make.  I'd easily have paid that for Breath of the Wild.  That kind of experience is just ridiculously amazing.  It's less than $1/hour.  Besides, my Rocket League addiction that I only paid $20 for is adding money into my Game Bank all the time.

Yeah, I see your point! There are tons of dream games I'd hand over some serious cash for.

When it comes to value for money I do get what you mean, for me now I think breath of the Wild is coming up on the 500 hours total play time and I got the base game and the DLC for it, but I think that game is so good that I've recommended some people buy a Switch and that game alone and it would be worth the price, if you were to pay the full 320 for the Switch and 80 for the game+dlc you would still get value for money imo that game is just so worth it.

Then I've got Paladins.... 900 hours in... free2play and think it's gotten less than 30e from me still for cosmetics and battle passes for each season, it would be perfectly possible to go all that time without paying a cent but I think their battle pass system works great and if you just buy one and play the game a lot you can buy each next season's version with the crystals earned in game.

^ This, this, and THIS.

Though, as much as i'd like to see a "Prime of the Wild," the game of my dreams is already being made: Metroid Prime 4. If MP4 wasn't being made, I'd be willing to spend $500 just to make it happen. I've been waiting for that game for over 10 years.



   

Give me a kind of Smash Bros-esque (or Nintendo All-Stars) RPG (be action or turn-based) with a fun decomplexed story with some neat mechanics centered around different characters moveset and abilities ... and it's made by Monolith Soft.

Price tag : 100 $ (200 $ collector edition)
