Run Lola Run (or Groundhog's Day) - Majora's Mask showed that a game structured around optimizing your route through a repeating scripted sequence can be fascinating. No other game that I know of does this, so why not?




You actually liked Majora's Mask? Hmmmm first person I've ever met that actually liked that one.


I loved Majora's mask. Dead Rising also has a similar mechanic.

Really? Cool, I'll have to check it out... I played the demo and it was fun, but I never go the sense that it was much more than a beat-em-up. I'm sure it's in the bargain bin for like $2 now so I'll give it a go.


Clue: Not the board game as a video game: the movie as a video game. The characters, the fast-paced detective work, covering your tracks as the killer and hiding the body from house guests who unexpectedly show up... the whole movie would make a brilliant adventure game.

Casino Royale: gambling games are always so sterile... what about high-stakes, life-or-death gambling as a Bond-like character with intermissions that are action/mystery sequences. Hoyle Poker meets LA Noire? Super Caesars Palace meets Heavy Rain? Could be excellent...

Cloverfield: seriously, why hasn't anybody done this yet? There's plenty of games where you play as the big monster, but none (that I know of) that have you playing from the point of view of a citizen trying to escape.

There aren't many that hit either extreme. I would like more games that have you from the point of view of the big monster. Quite literally big. Not just an overpowered human sized monster.


edit: I think I like games that fill in back story or follow up on a movie's universe similarly to the halo novels filling in the halo backstory. Though I don't think it was executed well, the Avatar game kind of did what I'm talking about where you play a distant prequel to the movie I think.

I liked the first Dead Rising, hated the second. I can't stand it's mechanic though, I'd give it a 7/10 just for the horrible timed mechanic.

I like taking my time with the game not being timed.

I Am Legend would be fun, I like the whole zombie survival thing, especially barricade movies where everything seems to be going right but someone screws it up. I always though an mmo should be made like that. Think of a 3d urban dead.

I think lots of people enjoyed Majora's Mask, it's just that there's a few places where it loses it's steam.(Namely the water temple), which makes it less enjoyable than many other in the series.

You would think the Scorpion King would make a good game.

Hangover, as a good old adventure game.
