The Anime We'd Love to Play

IGN: "Super soldiers, lost magic, vampires, gas-powered guitars... wouldn't all these work so well in a video game? The answer is 'yes.'" (Culture)

Man, I'm just not up to date with the latest anime anymore.

Same here. The only one on this list that I've seen is Elfen Lied. That was on a recommendation from a friend or else I wouldn't have seen that either. It's kinda sad cause I grew up watching Japanese Anime in the late 80's, early 90's. I even watched a bunch in the late 90's. Good stuff.

Watch Scryed if you like fighting anime but the english dub sucks.

I think I've gotten too old for it. I can't help but get annoyed when I see the cookie cutter characters that you find in anime lately. The loser main character, the glasses girl, the tsundre, they just seem to reuse these personalities over and over and I can only stand so much of it. A lot of these things work their way into the jrpg industry as well and I think that's part of why some of them just seem so uninteresting.

But none of these is new. Almost every one of them is a decade old, and the newest one is a far-flung sequel to a series that's easily twenty years old(not gonna go look up when the first came out, but you get the picture).

The only one I haven't watched in Magic User's Club.

Scryed would make for a pretty interesting fighter. There's plenty of characters to use, and lots of room for story mode.

Despite its setting, I don't think Scrapped Princess would make a very good rpg. Not if you were just following the story, anyway, as you'd only use Pacifica's siblings(in other words, just two people). Well, if it were in the style of Nier, it might work.

Well, I must amend that I haven't seen much Elfen Lied, so I can't really tell on that one.

FLCL is hard enough to pin down as an anime; trying to make a game out of it would be next to impossible, especially without expanding upon the original story. Which I wouldn't be upset with, since I always wanted more, anyway.

Hellsing would be like some sort of Gungrave meets Castlevania mix. It could work, but since Alucard can't really die...

Diebuster(Aim for the Top 2) would probably wind up being like a Gundam game, sadly. Capturing that Gainax over-the-top action and style isn't likely to be doable by many developers. CyberConnect2 comes to mind, looking at Asura's Wrath, but I wonder if even they could pull off some of the epic-sized battles that would take place later on.

I saw FLCL waaaaaay back in 2001, Only 6 episodes mind you? That would be pretty cool, Beating up Robots with a Bass guitar would be pretty mental!

Same as everyone else, I've only seen FLCL and Elfen Lied though Hellsing has been on my to do list for like the past two years. I'd love to see a Darker than Black game in the same style as the Batman: Arkham Series and Assassins Creed games.

This list needs more Guyver and I would love to see a Vampire Hunter D or a Demon City Shinjuku horror RPG in the works. Don't even let me get started on a Venus Wars Racer (would prefer it being handled by Comcept/Evolution Studios collaboration).....
