The variety of games available today to gamers is huge. You can find virtually any game either free, developed by an indie studio, or paid, released by a mainstream game development company. On the internet you can play games at royal vegas and a huge variety of gaming portals, games that will keep you occupied for minutes or even hours free of charge. But there are some games that have still not been created by developers, for one reason or another, games that I am looking for since forever. Games that I hope one day will be done. Here is my top 3 list of such games.
3. A “Red Dawn” RTS
Remember the movie from the mid-1980s, when the United States was invaded by Communists, leaving the job of liberating their home town to a bunch of kids hiding out in the forest and calling themselves The Wolverines? Well, this would make a great real-time strategy game! Just think of how exciting it would be to play as a ragtag band of youngsters taking on the mighty Soviet war machine. And for the fun of it, you could also play as the Communist forces, “liberating” more American territories from under capitalist oppression!
The story got a modern-day re-boot, although not a too impressive one, but I would surely like to see it turned into an RTS.
2. A modern day Running Man video game
The Running Man was not just an exciting action flick where the Governator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) could showcase his huge muscles, but also a chilling view of a dystopian future that screams for a modern day video game adaptation (I will conveniently ignore the side scrolling game released so long ago, which was awful even by those times’ standards). I imagine a game similar to Dying Light, set in the grim, media-controlled future, with Dynamo singing in the shadows while driving his electrifying car. I think it would be a unique experience, and somebody should really make it a reality.
1. A Doctor Who themed first person shooter
Doctor Who is a series that has been part of our lives for over 50 years now, filled with the coolest monsters and aliens ever invented. Just think about the scariest of them all, the Daleks and the Cybermen! Imagine how rewarding it would be to overtake hordes of these creatures with nothing but a huge gun in your hand!
I know, Doctor Who was never such an aggressive show – most of the conflicts in the series were solved using brain power rather than ammunition. But hey – you can’t blame a guy for hoping, right? And if the Star Trek universe could have a game where we could shoot the Borg, I think something similar for the Doctor Who universe is not too much to ask for.
