    Default Better Suggestions for Licensed Games?

    With the recent news about THQ losing business in this area, while a big name like Tim Schafer gets the Sesame Street license, I think that going to see a lot of changes in the field of licensed games. What's a license that you'd like to see adapted into a game, and who would you trust to do it right?

    An American Dad video game made by Rockstar. That would be awesome.

    Actually, the best game would be a fighting game with every licensed character possible, made by Nintendo, Super Smash Bros style.

    I'd like to see a Venture Bros. game with 100% involvement from Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer.

    For a farce/parody cartoon it's such a rich, fully realized world and cast of characters there's so much that could be done with it.

    Probably no surprise but My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has an awful lot of potential. No real preference for developer.

    I also would like an Expendables game. In fact, a fighting game featuring all the great action heroes would be fantastic. NetherRealm Studios would do a great job.

    I think that there has been a fighting game in development for a while, but obviously nothing from a professional company.

    Anyway, an Inglourious Basterds game would be cool.

    Would like to see more games based on books. Never played it but I thought that Dante's Inferno was a cool idea for a video game. One of the very few books that I was forced to read in high school english class and actually enjoyed.
    Wherever politics tries to be redemptive, it is promising too much. Where it wishes to do the work of God, it becomes not divine, but demonic.

    Now I want a Sims clone based on 1984.

    Another Rambo 2 and Rambo 3. These games have a lot of potential for being remade into good current gen games. There's a Rambo game in development for a 2012 release though, apparently. Hope it's good.

    I never would have thought of this if you hadn't mentioned it, but YES.

    Fucking this times 100. That would be a day one for me.


    I'm going to be crucified for this but I'd love a Resident Evil game based on the film series. Let me play as Alice in a combination stealth/horror/action game and you can have all my monies.
