With all of the hype over the myriad of wonderful games that have recently been announced (Fallout 4, The Last Guardian, Star Wars- Battlefront, Etc...), it's hard to think about more games that you might want, but I've compiled a list of eight games that, until now, you probably never realized you wanted.

1. Kung Fu Panda Open-World RPG

I know it might seem a little childish but stick with me here. For anyone who knows and loves the world of Kung Fu Panda, the idea of a game that would put you in that world with the option to create your own Kung Fu warrior within it is a tantalizing concept. Imagine for a moment, creating a character of whatever animal species you want and then taking it out into the world that in the movies was so beautifully developed (but ultimately largely unexplored) and creating a name for yourself as a legendary kung fu warrior or even possibly as a dangerous threat to the kung fu world (i.e. Tai Lung or Shen).

The game would theoretically follow a classical style of skill customizations that would affect how you fight. For instance, if you wanted to be more of a stealth fighter there would be options to allow for faster silent movement, stealth take-downs, and ranged attacks. If you wanted to be a straight forward fighter, however, there would options for things such as damage resistance, stronger attacks, and similar advantages. This level of fighting customization coupled with the humor and beautiful look of the movies would set up a gaming world similar to a (very much toned-down) version of Borderlands. In fact, it would probably even work incredibly well with the style of multi-player that Borderlands utilizes, allowing others to bring their created characters into your world and fighting alongside you. Just imagine the fighting possibilities that would create!

2. Assassin's Creed Prohibition

Recognize any of these fine, upstanding gentlemen?

I shouldn't have to justify why this would be awesome... but I will anyway! The early 1900's America is ripe with fun landscapes, interesting cultural collisions, and a wondrous boom in organized crime. Imagine facing off against the likes of Al Capone's crime syndicate or, even more exciting, joining it! It would theoretically give players the choice to side with the police and stop Capone or side with Capone and work to build up the business. Also, New York City at the time was just beginning to reach it's peak while still maintaining just enough gritty poor environments and beautiful neighborhoods to provide a variety among the landscapes you can explore. Take all of this, throw in the classic Assassin's Creed formula and you've got one hell of a game!

3. The Cabin In The Woods

To be honest, if you haven't seen the movie you probably should just skip this one and trust that it would be a good game.

Alright, so the movie is based on the concept that a group of people work to make sure that a particular order of death is followed and the Gods are appeased. What I thought was most interesting, however, is the weird science that went into making sure this happened. The whole time I was watching the movie I kept thinking "It's like they're playing a Sims game!". Imagine sitting behind the desk and being given the controls to cause horrific chaos in the lives of the people in the game. The possibilities are endless!

Remember all of those monsters that were revealed? Imagine having all of those as play things that could be set free to torment and kill the victims. It would be like a thousand horror movies that you control! Plus, the "order" of death that has to be followed sets up the perfect objective based gaming. You could pick out the victims from a pool of candidates and then work to make sure that they die in the correct order. I think it is prime material for a game to cause chaos and enjoy the fun of all kinds of different horror movies!

4. High Quality 3D World Builder

B-E-A-utiful! Am I right?
B-E-A-utiful! Am I right?

So you might have already considered this but what I'm describing is basically taking the software that video game creators use to make worlds, "dumbing" it down so that anyone can use it, and putting it on a disk. I really, really, really enjoy games like Minecraft and Little Big Planet but they always leave me feeling that the world I've just spent countless hours on could be just a little better. Sure, I could just try to become a game designer but that seems excessive for what I consider a hobby (and my girlfriend considers an obsession). Maybe I'm just being nit-picky because I LOVE Minecraft but I think a lot of people would really enjoy the ability to easily create their own game worlds in high definition.

5. Great 3D Pokemon Open-World Game

Straight out of my imagination!

The world of Pokemon has always been a beautiful environment that shines through even the earliest, most pixelated versions and holds a place in the heart of nerds all over the world. Despite the love we all already hold for it, I can't help but imagine how wonderful it would be to see it remastered into a high quality, 3D landscape.

Imagine running up on a giant Onyx while exploring this wonderful world and trying to capture it! It would be amazing!

6. Middle Earth

Shadow of Mordor is, without a doubt, a great LOTR game but I feel like Middle Earth is such a great environment that is barely touched by the map of that game. Middle Earth is so expansive and beautiful that I would love to just spend hours and hours and hours exploring the world and I'm sure millions of other fans would too.
For me, I feel that the main focus of a game about the whole of middle earth would be best if it was not focused mainly on combat. Don't get me wrong, that should definitely be a component of the game but I feel like the main focus should be more about exploring the world and looking into the lore of the world. Imagine being able to go into a city you've read about extensively and actually walk around and see everything you've read about. You could possibly even have the ability to "see" into the past so that you could search through time to see the events that make up the lore of the world. This could be done by finding important landmarks or items that were important to the event which would allow you to learn more about the world. Additionally, it would be great to see some of the creatures and races brought to live, as well as viewing the way their culture functions. It's like the pinnacle of nerd dreams!

7. Hogwarts RPG

I know what you're thinking- There already are several Harry Potter games that take place at Hogwarts! Why would we need another one?

Yes, we have had multiple versions of Hogwarts presented over the years and, except for some of the Lego Harry Potter games, Hogwarts has never really felt like anything more than a backdrop. I feel like if you were to create a game where you create your own witch or wizard and have them learn new spells and grow with Hogwarts it would really be a fun game. Hogwarts has a shockingly large number of unique locations and secret areas that could be great to find and explore. Wouldn't it be amazing to grow a character through hogwarts and let it become the home to you that it was to those in the books. Of course, it would also be great to include other great locations and get to know the characters from the books even better.

8. Green Arrow

Imagine Batman Arkham City mixed with some bow and arrow long range combat! Green Arrow is the logical next step for Rocksteady's killer Batman formula. Picture Green Arrow jumping across rooftops, taking enemies out from across the block, and throwing some classic Green Arrow humor into the dark atmosphere. It would be perfect! Additionally, the variety of arrow types that he uses would more than compensate for the gadgets traditionally used by Batman. It would be a great way to keep the game really similar to the Arkham series but still change it up enough to keep fans interested and bring in new villains and story-arcs.
