... although GI Joe should absolutely be done in a Battlefield type game :)

I'd also love to see Ubisoft or any other proper developer picking up the rights to the french comic Lanfeust of Troy, for a huge epic fantasy-adventure.

True, there's loads of Bandes Dessinee that would work as games.

I did think that GI Joe might make a good FPS, but it just seems that there are so many FPS games already, and the RTS idea makes use of the sheer array of character types. You're right though, the class based nature of Battlefield is the next best option for exploiting all the different skillsets on offer.

Would love to see Akira come in sandbox form. Hell yeah!

I'd like a Road Rash spinoff from it :)

Good list - especially like the GI Joe idea - very amusing - I think we are also missing a Desperate Dan/Red Dead Redemption game!!!

Hah hah,British humour comics could be hilarious-imagine a Numbskulls or Billy Whizz game.
