I'd love a Batman RPG from the point of view of the villains. The Bat is awesome, don't get me wrong, but how brilliant would it be to rise up as one of The Joker's henchman to become a kingpin of crime yourself? I dare say you could ultimately even mutiny against the Clown Prince of Crime himself :)
Anime like Dragon Ball and Naruto are made for RPG style games. Always gaining more powers to combat more and better bosses. The first Dragon Ball anime also really had that adventure aspect nailed down.
So much potential for a Harry Potter RPG. I always talk about how good it would be. Jeremy Soule for the soundtrack too.
We must petition this!!
God this needs to happen, the lore alone is making me salivate.
I genuinely can't stand Harry Potter but this still sounds epic. Mind you John Williams didn't do a terrible job with the score for the films...
My thoughts exactly! Never really got into the Harry Potter story, but an RPG sounds like it would be amazing
I choked on my butter beer! You can't stand potter? My god...
Surprised that you only named four franchises, there are so many that would work! I loved the Harry Potter games when I was younger (still get them out every now and then). A more personal experience of the world could indeed work well, maybe that will happen with the new film coming out in the future.
Loving the Bzatman idea. Could definately work in a game. Shane Gotham isn't all it should be right now. Hopefully season 2 gets better
Harry Potter is an amazing shout! A Transformers RPG would have awesome potential, in similar line of that could possibly do Pacific Rim? Work your way up to upgrade your mech and fight gradually harder Kaiju across the world, etc. So many potential franchises that could get the RPG treatment, but would require massive work to satisfy and meet expectations.
Tbh with the number of tv series on nowdays there's so much ip that could fit this bill. GoT, walking dead
Team Fortress 2. You already have 9 toons with different unique abilities. I think it would be an interesting game to say the least.
Harry Potter RPG THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE ! Love the lego games but theres no more HP (N)
I think Infamous could be a good RPG. Second Son already had a beautiful open world and a decent combat system. They just need to add a more in depth progression and perk system for your character, looting clothing items to enhance the superpowers of your hero, and sidequests the throughout the city that arent repetitive, and why not let players customise the look and voice of their superhero as well.
I think Transformers would make an awesome RPG depending on who made it. Turning from a robot into a car would be pretty cool. Harry Potter would be good too. What I really want though is a Discworld game to explore :)
Give me a Harry Potter RPG The Lego Harry Potter games are amazing
Naruto or Avatar (The last airbender and legend of Korra).
A Harry Potter RPG would be amazing! You could totally fit the whole are you renegade or paragon into it too!
a ratchet and clank RPG with all the characters from the previous games being playable
Loved the Harry Potter idea! Great read!
A Harry Potter RPG should definitely be made! How much fun would that be...
I think a proper JRPG style X-Men game would be fantastic. Interesting class system with psychics and elemental people like Jean Grey and Iceman, melee fighters like Wolverine, range with Cyclops, and more. I like the X-Men Legends games, but a proper RPG would be great.
