I know most of you said no to Nintendo hiring fans to make games for them, but yes to Sega doing so.

But what are some other developers that you think should hire fans to make games for them?

Maybe Capcom, since they're not making any new Mega Man games, Inafune left to make an embarrassment, and Capcom's most recent game is trash.

Maybe Rare, since people are still hankering for new games from Rare's older IPs like Banjo-Kazooie, and 90% of the original talent has left to form their own studios.

Well, those are my two cents on the matter, how about you?

Valve:
Someone needs to make HL3 eventually.

Damn, how could I forget about that?!! We haven't even gotten Portal 3, Team Fortress 3, or even Left 4 Dead 3 yet.

Konami should too, especially so that we get another TRUE Metal Gear game, but it might be difficult for them since they're still under scrutiny.

I'd still like to see if Rare were willing to hire classic Rare fans to make a new BattleToads or Perfect Dark.

Personally I am not too into fan-games.
If you really want to make a good product you need to be able to remove yourself from the project.

Look at Sonic Mania, even though it was good game, it was Just Sonic.
Sure it was better than Sonic team could do, but it does not evolve the franchise.
Sonic can die peacefully if he is given to the fans, so Sega should probably continue to do that.

If a fan were to make HL3, Portal 3, Left 4 Dead 3 or whatever, they would most likely try to stick to the formula.
Valve needs to really impress us with Portal 3 and HL3.

A fan-project of a WiiU Zelda would've been nothing like BotW.

It would be a dream of mine to work with Team Ninja. Those guys massacred the idea of fluid gameplay.

Sticking to the formula is what Playtonic did for Yooka-Laylee, but people are still highly divided about it, whereas Mario Odyssey expanded upon the formula and people love it.

Then again, the latter had dozens if not hundreds of people working on it, while the former is just a small indie game.

It cut two-thirds of the roster and will most likely lock everyone else behind DLC.

Its a 30$ game now. It did have the same amount like other fighting games when they launched
