Just imagine lining up in the center of town to fight some bank robbers when a gigantic, steam-powered mech drops down from the sky and forces all parties involved to team up and blow it away with their carriage-mounted railgun. We would owe it to the anime fan in all of us to buy that game on the spot. Oddly enough, a game with over-the-top fantasy elements in a western setting would most likely spur the genre along more than a good game in a more traditional setting would. World War II games weren't exactly the norm before Wolfenstein, and now it seems there's one being released every couple of hours. The western even has a little bit more room to maneuver within itself than the World War II genre, as there is slightly less to go on historically. When it comes to WWII games, developers are hamstrung by well-documented facts; they are forced to keep the game to the same battles, the same locales, and essentially the same story. Contrastingly, developers can really do whatever they want with a western, as its story will be focused more on its individuals and their issues. Creativity-wise, the western genre is as untapped as the actual West was all those years ago."
