Five Games We Want But Will (Probably) Never See

Video game development is a funny business sometimes; often erratic and unpredictable. Fans clamour for new iterations of their favourite franchises like Beyond Good and Evil or Perfect Dark, but are instead left with the unfortunate creation of Naughty Bear and Naughty Bear 2.

With all that in mind then, we thought it would be fun to get together and pick five games we desperately want, but will probably never see. (PC, PS3, Retro, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Bushido Blade 3, Chrono Trigger 2, Final Fantasy 6 HD, TimeSplitters 4, Donkey Kong 64 2, Dino Crisis 3.

There was a Dino Crisis 3 on Xbox.. but it just sucked so bad it kinda killed the franchise.

I agree with everything else though, TimeSplitters 4 would be sweet!


It was about Zombie Dinosaurs in space... needless to say it bombed pretty hard lol.

Yeah, would love to see a Dino crisis HD Remake or a genuine sequel to Dino crisis 2

Oh really? I did not know this... Sucks to hear that though lol. Perhaps a Dino Crisis remake in HD then.

The "Dream Games" for me are pretty easy to think up.

#1 A TRUE Next-Gen or Next-Level Monster Hunter. Amazing graphic detail to the point you see the scales breaking off and see the bare meat underneath. Awesome weather effects with wind driven particles like leaves, fog and dust, rain drops hitting the Wyverns/monsters and making splashing effects and and dripping and making surfaces glisten properly. My point is, the gameplay and content are there and damn-near perfect. Monster Hunter just needs to be taken to that next graphical level. Capcom refuses to evolve MH's visuals at all. To the point where they just keep moving down in platform levels to keep it exactly the same.

Just like a proper next-gen Monster Hunter, I've also been looking forward to a PS3 Champions of Norrath since aout PS3's launch. It's STILL just a pipe-dream and very little of high quality has come out to fill it's place. So A new Champions of Norrath would be another.

A Star Wars BattleFront 3 that is actually good, and greatly improves on BattleFront 2 in every way, and even as a fan I will say there is plenty of room for improvement over 2 in just about every single aspect. Graphics like 1313 (which I think may end up being code name and tech demo for BF3, it has that feel), tight, smooth gameplay, more thought put into Jedi controls, new modes that bring order to the chaos but also keep the large scale. It'll be work, but I'm shocked it hasn't been done yet. The tech has been there this whole gen to do it right, LucasArts just wasted the opportunity.

Gran Turismo 6 on PS3 by September 2013 with GT5's engine improved with all the 1st party PS3 coding wizardry put forth by Santa Monica, Guerilla Games, Naughty Dog and all the rest long after GT5's graphics engine was completed so was of little use in GT5 (aside from what could be added through patching), incorperated properly from the ground up, and see what Yamauchi-San can REALLY do with the PS3's hardware. This one may be the biggest pipe-dream of all. Even though Kaz said work on GT6 started as soon as GT5 was shipped in 2010, I just can't picture Yamauchi-san completeing GT6 in under 3 years. But finger's crossed. There's always Project Cars if my dream doesn't pan out.

A really good Dr. Who game.

A MARVEL vs DC fighting game made by NeatherRealm Studios. After seeing what they're doing with Injustice's gameplay, it's clear that it has to be NetherRealm who does it were it ever to happen.

Games we want that will likely never happen? Another Metal Gear starring the young Solid Snake - except one that actually made sense like MGS1.

How about an actual good WWE game that isn't filled with glitches and the same problems that have plagued WWE games for years?
TemplarDante  +   857d ago
Dino Crysis 3 was going to be a launch PS2 title, it got delayed and Msft bought Xbox exclusivity with it.
God.. it was a terrible terrible terrible game.
Godmars290  +   858d ago
A title with Chrono Trigger's theme and mechanics, but there doesn't need to be a directly related sequel.

I want me a new banjo kazooie game. One that is a true sequel. I also want the next 3d mario to be more like mario 64 and sunshine than galaxy. Galaxy was too linear and a bit dumbed down imo.
chillhomie  +   857d ago
Agreed with everything except the Mario Galaxy part. The game was meant to be the way it was, more point A to point B similar to the 2D Mario's but the level design and brilliant creative ideas make the galaxy series one of the best in gaming. That being said, a Mario 64 or sunshine in HD would be gorgeous. Sunshine still looks good today IMO, very impressive water effects and the overall scenery looks nice and colorful and that game is over 10 years old! Lol

Timesplitters 4 coould happen

Shenmue 3 will happen but only if another publisher buys the IP which rumors are for sale. So first make a HD collection to see ow big the market is for the game
Freak of Nature  +   857d ago
Donkey kong 64 sequel would be something special, for some reason I think we will see the day of it's return. Time splitters 4 could be a reality too.

Another Oddworld game within the Oddworld universe is coming. Beyond good and evil 2 is also in the works....So as for 5 that may not ever come?

Dark cloud


another Legend of Dragoon 2

Panzer dragoon

Another wind walker

Oh man - Dawn of War. Such awesome series. I hope THQ get their bearings soon and produce a sequel. To this day I feel there hasn't been a game that would grasp the whole epic factor of the Warhammer 40k universe. The Darn of War series have come close and offered something truly amazing in terms of RTS micro management.

Actually, it was on the DS, was in 3D, and included voice-acting during story scenes.
