Don't get me wrong. You can get a decent team by just playing. I have done this my self. Buy I agree to even get just one of these icons it's going to take such a grind to the point where even playing at intended is just not fun anymore or spending such a large amount of money.

It's fine to stay working on the same IP that you are experts and experience on. Considering the fan base etc but should also build on new IPs. If you are good at making jrpgs or fighting games you should have the experience to create something new in a new world new name. Cause lately its been remakes, games with the same series aka Cod, tales, FF. Sometimes gaming needs a fresh world unrelated to existing games yes it can flop like forspoken but horizon and got did fine and they were totally different then there last game.

There's all kinds of new things out there. Indie through aaa. I mean yea they don't take chances like they used to back in the day but some still do. Capcom did exoprimal(close enough) not my cup of tea (online) but just an example. Square did a handful recently, it's the eas and ubisofts that don't take chances

I just want a Xenosaga trilogy HD remaster or remake such a great trilogy. I like Namco they are one of my favorite developers/publishers. Love the Tales games and I would also like a new Dynasty Warriors Gundam game. I would like Namco to continue having great hits both new and old but I also don't want them to forget some of their obscured titles.

Dust 514 was such a unique game back in the day. I only played probably 10 hours of it because the balancing was way off, but otherwise it was an interesting idea.

Was a unique idea that was never realized, it didn't go beyond just being and playing like an outdated generic FPS. It never got better, and then they shut it down. If this follows the standard of your typical service style fps then it won't live long either.
