So, I've decided to enter my first Moviepilot contest. After taking the "Can We Guess Which Fandom You Belong To?" quiz (which is worth taking even if you aren't entering the contest), I got this result:
You're All About The Superheros!
Hey you.. yeah, YOU! My Spidey senses are telling me that you're crazy about the world of DC/Marvel. Since you've got love for all things super-related, so why not try your hand at writing a SUPER... VIDEO GAME article? Suit up, and get gaming!
So, I'm not the world's biggest gamer; I've owned an Xbox One for a few months, and I've only really played two games: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (which was pretty decent) and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor (which is pretty amazing). Hopefully within the next few months, I'll be able to add Batman: Arkham Knight to the mix. Despite this, I really like playing on the Xbox, so here are a few games I'd like to see on it:
Injustice: Gods Among Us
Injustice: Gods Among Us was originally released for the Xbox 360 in 2013. The main reason I want this game to be redone for the Xbox One is because it spawned some of my favorite comics. If the game is half as good as the comics, I'm sure that I'd love it. I'd be very interested to see what the world looks like in the game because the Injustice comics cover the five years leading up to the video game as a prequel, as well as how many of the team-ups are similar. Of course, the comics are only on year three, so two more years to go, which is plenty of time for things to change. So, I'd really like to see Injustice: Gods Among Us remade for the Xbox One.
Non-Lego Avengers Game
I just think that the Lego games look ridiculous. And there are barely any non-Lego superhero games for the Xbox One that I know of. The only ones that are non-Lego to the best of my knowledge are The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and the upcoming [Batman: Arkham Knight](tag:2683936). Honestly, I wouldn't be too picky about what kind of game, either. However, a Marvel Phase One game would be awesome - and it could work. You see, when a movie is adapted to a video game, they usually have to add extra stuff to extend the story. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is an excellent example of this. However, instead of doing that, they could actually subtract some scenes from the movies so the core storyline is there, then use each movie as a chapter in the game, giving us the chance to play as Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, and Iron Man before we get to the big, final Avengers chapter where we could either toggle between characters for different parts (for instance, when Loki attacks the hovercraft, you could play as Captain America while Iron Man is trying to fix the engine, then switch to Thor with the task of containing the Hulk for oh so long (2 minutes?) before backup arrives:
Even if they didn't go through all the trouble with adapting Phase One or anything from the MCU into a video game, I think that there really should be an Avengers game that doesn't involve Legos.
An Epic Fantasy Game
There's already one epic fantasy game for the Xbox One - Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor (no, I'm not counting the Lego Hobbit Games). I'd like another. A second Lord of The Rings game would be awesome, but I'd like to see another fantasy game with an original world and storyline. Perhaps something that involves dragons? It could be something like a traveling wizard forgets his staff/magic amulet/magic stone/etc. and you try to get it back to him, or it could be that you are drafted into a team of heroes trying to stop a darkness from taking the land...the sky's the limit. Unless you have dragons you can fly around on, which would sort of kill that limit.
A Mark Millar Video Game Adaption
Mark Millar is one of the most influential comic book writers, and he's always a heavyweight when it comes to comic book movies. His comics Kick Ass and The Secret Service have been adapted into movies (The Secret Service's name was changed to Kingsman: The Secret Service), and at least two more of his comic books are being adapted: the Civil War storyline he wrote for Marvel and his newer Nemesis comics. Personally, I think that [Kingsman: The Secret Service](tag:713143) or Nemesis would create some incredible video games. Nemesis would definitely create an intense, gritty fighting game, while I think Kingsman could be a slightly lighter, more comedic type of action game.
These four games, in my opinion, would be excellent for the Xbox One. I could easily see several of them as an open world or sandbox game like Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. I know that I would buy each of them. What about you? What games would you like to see for Xbox One?
