Should Supernatural Turn Video Game?

That could work, but only with the television series actors doing the voices. Love that show, been a fan for the length of the entire show. Great music would also have to be a must for the game, ACDC would be the obvious choice!

If TellTale Games did it, then yeah, definitely. I like how they handled Walking Dead's transition from TV/Comics to videogames.

No AC/DC doesn't define that show for me (I'm Australian, So I'm pretty much sick of Acca dacca anyways lol).. But what does is...

CARRRRRRY ON MY WAYWARD SSSSOOO(AAAA)N. There will peace when you are done.. Lay your weary head to reEEEEsst...
Don't you cry no more...

At least for style's sake i could see a presentation similar to Asura's wrath .

By that i mean quests/adventures/chapters that could be presented as episodes with the formulaic layout and music from the show .

And the game itself could be some sort of alan wake on steroid

I watch this show religiously, and I have to admit it would be a great game. You have mystery, survival horror, first person shooter, magic, tall tales, urban legends, myths, allies and enemies in the forms of angels and demons, you have great boss fights, you have puzzles, and you have co-op. if it is done right it can be the next resident evil game type but it incorporates all different type of monsters. Best of all the story is already written. Honestly, to me zombies type games are getting stale. We need the were wolves, the banshees, ghost, and vampires for a change.

HELL YEA!

A survival horror/adventure game would be pretty damn awesome.

Playing as Castiel would be VERY interesting. lol

If this game were to come out I wouldn't want to be a tv character. There's many hunters in the supernatural world.

There's also Garth.

Id love to see a Green Arrow game.
Baka-akaB  +   1013d ago
Why not , as long as it's green arrow and not the show "the arrow" .

Careful i like the show , but for a game no reason to settle for the "bland" tv version with all the fantasy and dc-ish elements removed

Only if they get the right people to do it and they do it right!
No more damn cash grabs.

There certainly is enough lore to fill a game or two.

I particularly like the idea of a TellTale Games episodic approach.

Each episode could be it's own story arc, or it's own "case".

Could be very good.

*Sam reads newspaper, and says "I think i found us a job", "Listen to this: 'Guy turned to chocolate in his own bathroom'....
*Dean: So?
*Sam: Well, don't you think we should look into this, it could lead us to Castiel/Ruby/Meg/Azazel/Dad/Li lith/Lucifer?
*Sam/Dean leaves the table and then Sam/Dean picks up Sam's/Dean's phone revealing that Sam/Dean actually HAS been cohorting with that demon bitch/Cass.

Yes... but I still love the show XD
NarooN  +   1013d ago
Lmao!!! I love the show, but that's a very accurate representation of the show. :,D
MikeyDucati1  +   1013d ago
Can anyone name a TV or movie that was successful as a game? I'm drawing a blank here.
Heisenburger  +   1013d ago
The Walking Dead(I doubt the game would have been made were it not for the shows immense popularity)

Though since it isn't based on the show it shouldn't count, I suppose...

There have been a few good adaptations.

*Few.

Nice! That's a good one. Forgot all about TWD. Thanks...

Yep another good one!!
Wolf873  +   1013d ago
It's a neat idea. Although I would love it if they did it canon, bring together story element that can serve to be part of the Series' mythology.
Magnus  +   1013d ago
If they stay true to the tv show and keep the same presentation of the show and use the tv characters then yes it might work. As long as the game is not rushed for a quick buck like Walking Dead Survival Instinct was man that game was bad. It also depends on the studio who does it along with the publisher then yes Supernatural might make a great game. Only other tv franchise I hate as a game was CSI the character model was horrible, voice acting got annoying and the game dragged on there was no room to explore.

Idk how it would work out but a Supernatural game sounds interesting to me, i recently caught up with series and it's great so i wouldn't mind seeing a game version, just would hope it would be great.
Pintheshadows  +   1013d ago
I've been wondering for a while why there isn't a Supernatural game already. I think they could do a really excellent survival horror esque game with it. Weapons based on what you are hunting, sieging a room by salting the doors and windows. Driving the Impala to a cemetary to burn some bones.

It would be cool to play as Dean Winchester.

I think the gameplay could be like a horror themed LA Noire.
