Why Not Do These?

Video Games that Need to Be Done or Need a Sequel

Like many of you, I am gamer, and I can't seem to find enough time for gaming, nor can I get enough of it, or even wait for my next income amount to come so I can buy more games for my PS4.  But like many of you, the reading gamers, you probably wonder why certain games haven't been made or even have sequels to games that you wish were made.  This article here is just my opinion on what sequels should be made or even games that should be made.

'Robocop'

One of the best science-fiction series ever written had a 2014 remake with a PG-13 rating that could have been better, and an unfortunately low-rating video game for the Microsoft Windows, Xbox, PlayStation 2, GameCube, and Game Boy Advance. However, why not give the futuristic enforcing of the law another chance at video gaming?  It could take place after the events of Robocop 3, Robocop (2014) (also, it would be nice to see Novak, played by Samuel L. Jackson, get his ass kicked, because he never got that in the movie), or even a reboot of Robocop vs. Terminator that was available on the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive/Master System/Game Gear, Super Nintendo, and the Gameboy.

'Shadow of Rome'

The plot of the game is a fictionalized account of the Caesar assassination.  The player takes on the roles of Agrippa (who did exist) whose father has been accused of the murder and has to fight in the arena and Octavius who goes about trying to prove the innocence of Agrippa's father.  The game ends with a cliffhanger and there was supposed to be a sequel, but due to poor sales, it was scrapped.  I for one would like to see a sequel to it not because I am a proud History grad, but I also don't like unanswered questions.

'The Dark Tower'

I am not suggesting the movie version of Stephen King's work be a video game, but what about the series itself?  I am certain that Roland Deschain would make a fine addition to the realm of video games, but how exactly it would work out is what I would ask game developers.

'Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy'

It was included by GamesRadar among games with the most untapped potential.  The game ended with a cliffhanger and there were plans to make a sequel, but Midway went under and no sequel to the game was ever made.  It still doesn't change the fact that this game needs to be looked at as another possible game idea.

From the Obvious Title

The third part of the trilogy came out in 1994 and there hasn't been another since then.  So why not bring back the most popular beat-em-up game that ever landed on the Sega Genesis?  The question is, would there be any new characters learning from the old characters? Or would they come back for another round?

Another Obvious Title

I know movie-to-video games don't exactly get the best reviews and vice-versa, especially the original Total Recall that also had the Govenator.  But Running Man hasn't been done, and why shouldn't it?  The movie was like a movie version of Manhunt but much more popular amongst the brainless masses that chose mainstream media garbage instead of thinking for themselves.  But another question would be, would the game be trash compared to the movie if more characters were added? Or would it be fine not to make a game of it at all?

Justice League with an Arkham Twist?

With the end of the Arkham Trilogy and the recent release of Injustice 2, why not have a full-fledged Justice League game with Arkham-style gameplay and access to the founding members of the Justice League from the movie (Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg, and Superman) then, move on to other characters that can be added and if not, then how about a sequel?

Conclusion

I never expect my ideas to be taken in by the video game companies. I just want to share my ideas with you the readers and gamers out there and see what you think. So what do you think?
