Make These, Please! Five Alternate Settings Begging for an Open World RPG

Leviathyn.com's Cassidee Moser sounds off on five settings that are more than deserving of an in-depth open world RPG. (PC, PS3, Tag Invalid, Xbox 360)

They may not be settings per se, but the more time passes the more I want to see a fantasy rpg with traditional science fiction antagonists (alien invasion) and a science fiction game with traditional fantasy game antagonists (trolls, dragons etc).

I just think it would be a fun twist to have two opposite worlds collide.

Not necessarily for an rpg but i'd love an open world action game set during the Vietnam war. Kind of Red Dead Redemption Vietnam if you will.

And Victorian England could potentially make a good setting for a game.

Feudal Japan would be nice, but I would really like to see more creative Sci Fi settings. Not that I mind the fantasy worlds we get but they do get a little over used. Nice gritty science fiction would be awesome to see.

At least japan still had Yakuza kenzan , and somewhat Way of the samurai . Way of the samurai is not really open , but feature tons of branching choice based storylines

I'd love to see a fully 3D realization of the Planescape universe. It's quite imaginative, both aesthetically and conceptually. If you've played Planescape: Torment, you'll know what I mean.

Finally. Somebody else who wants piarte games. I'm craving a really good one. There's just too much potential for one not to be made.

I'd settle for anything Norse myth based that's actually great , open or not . Greek/Romans myths are great , but actually being right in the middle of Ragnarok ? come on !

Too often games only use one or two norse chars , or mostly name sword and vehicules with them instead .

PS :

And please no , beforehands , Too Human was awful .
