Forums - Gaming Discussion - Which Devs Do You Wanna See Try Which Genres?

I love Monolith Soft for their work on the Xenoblade games, and their work on Project X Zone 1 and 2 shows they can do passable tactical RPGs, but I wonder what other kinds of games they can do. What if they did a racing game or a brawler? How would that work out?

What are some developers you know of that haven't worked on a particular kind of game but you'd like to see them try? :)

Not so much a genre as an IP. I've said for a while that Naughty Dog would be perfect for a full effort Bond game.

Beyond that, Klei can keep acing every genre they touch. Looking forward to their upcoming RPG.



I have a developer working on a specific franchise, FROM Software making a Castlevania



I'm a Team Ninja gamer all the way. I've always wanted to see them open up the library of characters available in the DoA franchise. I would love to see an espionage title with Christie as the main character including Bayman and Leon. A wrestling game (which has been stale for decades) starring Bass and Tina with Lisa. Possibly a Ninja Gaiden world with Kasumi and Ayane as the stars and Hayate and Hayabusa as guest playables.

I just think the execution of both franchises are as fluid and responsive as the best of them. I don't know what engine they use but whatever it is, it's phenomenal.

There's so much potential with those characters. I'd also like to see a hack n slash Scorpion title where he hunts down Sub Zero

If only Naughty Dog could develop SOCOM 5, I would be a happy man.

I want to see a full Western RPG set in Zelda universe, but not be a Zelda game with Link playable. Something along the lines of Shadow of Mordor/War. Make up a brand new character, maybe while Link is asleep or yet to be revealed, etc.

What's their upcoming RPG?

Wouldn't a Bond game work best as an FPS like GoldenEye, and has Naughty Dog ever even done an FPS? I don't think they'd do another fighting after Way of The Warrior flopped.

WayForward Technologies has done a lot of great Metroidvania games (most of them Shantae), they proved with Contra 4 they can do run and gun-style games, and platformers when they did DuckTales Remastered. I'd like to see if WayForward can try their hands at an open-world game, even though the genre is very crowded.

That'd be awesome! Like a spiritual successor to Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. :)

Exactly. I picture Scorpions whipping around his spear in a 3D environment with heat seeking/lock-on capabilities so the enemy wouldn't necessarily need to be directly in front of you. I imagined a level where he's in a forest and there's ninja enemies hiding in tree tops and Scorpion rips them down with the spear. Obviously that would be his default weapon with the sword he wields in the newer games.

Speaking of Scorpion, I wanna see if Neatherrealm Studios can still do top-down twin stick shooters like Smash TV or Total Carnage, maybe even revolutionize the genre. :)

I'd like to see if Yacht Club Games can do any kind of game that isn't a 2D platformer. Maybe they could try a 3D platformer or a turn-based RPG.



Turn 10 making a Rhythm game, possibly one which utilizes the X1 force feedback wheel as an instrument, could use the pedals as kick drums and the wheel to try to wring as much money from your fans as you possibly can before they leave the concert.

Maybe.... if Rockstar made a sports game... something crazy like table tennis!



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