BrianBat420 made an interesting observation over in the "Big Boy" Next Generation Xbox thread. Towit: Launch titles always suck. The other thread has been 99.99999% focused on Next Generation Hardware ideas and themes. I for one would love to shift gears and talk more about the heart of our hobby. The Next Generation games themselves. By that I mean titles, themes, ideas, physics & technology, formats, convergence options...etc...etc...etc.
  1. Do we want to continue the episodic string of franchises from the XBox 360?
  2. Would we prefer fresh new directions
  3. which franchises do we want to see disappear with the XBox 360 genre. Or at worst continue to run in that format
  4. What PC classic franchises would we like to see resurrected in Next Gen
  5. Ditto with the Original XBox
  6. Was there any potential gaming theme which surprisingly didn't happen in this generation that we would like to see explored in Next Generation

These are just idea starters. Feel free to wade in with whatever tickles your fancy...as long as it is about GAMES on Next Generation XBox...and not the laborious console issues we have already beaten into submission.

In the launch phase...I would like to see the XBox team look backwards a little bit at first. Re-launch some gems that fully explores the strengths of the new console. Do a Halo 2 remake. Get Sierra to launch the King's Quest series. Re-do Advent Rising and complete the trilogy. Do Kameo right with Kinect. Create Dr. Who...the Game with Kinect. Could be interesting. Take on LEXX-"Tales From A Parallel Universe". Could be a blast! Do a whole Skyrim, Mass Effect type open world adventure about making America...where one can literally create the type of country they want...from 1776-2076. And I mean don't eliminate any sacred cow options...such as human rights, slavery, religion, suffrage, Indian Wars, Spanish Wars, World Wars, Industrialization, Technology Revolution, Globalization, the Cosmos. I'm talking an American version of Fable...on steroids. That's my starter kit.

How are you going to fit 50 gigs of DD-only game data through the thin pipes that go to people's homes in the US?

It seems FPS'es are here for much longer and the only stride ive seen in current gen advancing this genre is the last farcry and the upcoming one. Of course there was that one on xbox 1 that got bad reviews...

Kinect is a great step and with steel batallion, I think we might just see how it can influence hardcore gaming.

I'd like to see devs finish a game in the next gen before they ship it.

An MMO FPS. This gen or next. Battlefield has gone a long way for me, but I think this would rock.

On a similar note I was listening to Bombcast and they pretty much said this Mass Effect ending business, if planned by Bioware as a way to keep the DLC coming, was the end of gaming. There are definitely things in this gen that I hope get squashed in the next.

The closest thing was Borderlands and Resistance 2 co-op. Dust 414 might be interesting and Planetside 2 is coming soon.

I'd just love to see more F2P MMOs on consoles. Such a great model, love wasting time with DCUO without having to fire my PC.

Now playing: Destiny Beta, Wolfenstein
Recently Finished: Watch Dogs, Southpark: Stick of Truth, Infamous: SS
PSN & XBL: Scuzzlebutt33

Dust and Planetside both look cool. Neither for the Xbox though have to keep an eye on them.

Ok I'm on board for Dust. IGN has an article explaining how it's supposed to be connected with the Eve universe. Kinda wishing I played Eve now, but may need to get a headset for my PS3, will wait and see how it all pans out but I'm stoked for it now.
