Can The Next Crossover Game NOT Be a Fighter?

GXC: "It seems that some game companies are set on continuing the ever-increasing trend of crossover games. When it comes down to it, it’s good fan service. For a while, it was a novel idea. Yet, now I feel like I’m a little tired of crossovers. At least I’m a little tired of crossovers that are fighters. I think it’s time that publishers mix it up a bit more – If they want to make a crossover game, make it something fresh and amazing." (3DS, Culture, Professor Layton VS Ace Attorney, PS3, Tomb Raider, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Wii)

Square-Enix in particular has some great crossover possibilities. DLC in Sleeping Dogs has shown just that. It would be interesting to play Sleeping Dogs 2 and have Agent 47 appear throughout the game. I just think Sleeping Dogs is gritty enough to pull it off.

How about a Disney/Star Wars crossover? Very possible now.

ive always wanted a tomb raider /uncharted,but theres a huge issue it would be on PS only,and i dont think square may do it, and halo/metroid can never happen for obvious reasons,heres crossovers id love to see
uncharted/tomb raider

Not necessarily. If Square Enix and Naughty Dog both made a game with their respective engines you'd have a chance to see Nathan Drake on an Xbox 360 console at that point. That is if Sony would allow the character on the system in that regard which I don't think they'd pass up the opportunity to make loads of cash. I was thinking of a Tomb Raider/Uncharted crossover as well. One that is made by Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics and the other one can be made with Sony and Naughty Dog. Two separate stories from both companies that have both Lara and Drake coming together on two big ass crazy adventures.

One in the vain of Uncharted and one in the vain of Tomb Raider. Bring Lara Croft to Drake's world and bring Drake to Lara's world. That would be SO damn cool to play. An adventure that has Lara finding Drake on an adventure in his own world and have her play out of her element in Drake's environment where there's crazy ass shootouts and whatnot. Then bring Drake to Lara's world in order for him to return the favor in her helping him on his adventure and he'll have to contend with surviving and exploration and actual puzzles that don't just give you the answer lol.

I think it'd be a really good idea and Sony and Square Enix need to seriously consider it.

You mean vein. Vain has to do with vanity.

Making a spelling mistake calls for a disagree @Canary? Really? Lol.

Some crossovers were already made that weren't fighters.

A perfect example is Namco X Capcom. It was a rpg for the PS1. One of many never released outside of Japan though

Yeah, it says that in the article....

Sorry
When I see "opinion" rather than article or news, I don't really bother to read them.

Isn't the next crossover game the Fire Emblem x Shin Megami that's coming to Wii U? I doubt HIGHLY that it's a fighting game.

Read the article. It talks about crossovers already made that aren't fighters and more that are currently in development.
