    Need for Speed should be given to Rockstar Games. The main reason being is that we need a new NfS: Underground, but EA's racing studios would frig up the sub-franchise, they would focus too mush on the Autolog and having exotic super cars in it, rather then being to the culture of underground racing in which it's as much about visual customisation then is about the porformance of the cars. No one get culture like Rockstar and that scene is so deep and great for video games.

    Sonic should be given to criterion, if they structured the games like a cross between a racer and a platformer and not just a walk fast'em'up like recent sonics then they would have an instant game of the year.

    Hate to break this to you David, but aren't Arkedo closed?

    No. As mentioned in their entry.

    I've enjoyed Tomb Raider games from the start (I played the first one on Saturn,) and I liked the new Tomb Raider, but while I was playing it I kept feeling like it wasn't really Tomb Raider (never taking anything from anywhere but a cave is a bit of a giveaway.) If it had been a new IP, instead of just taking a known name and calling it a reboot when it doesn't do many of the things that gave us a reason to care about the name, would have made me enjoy it more, and I wouldn't have been bothered by as many parts of it. This article is basically telling us that established properties are worth more than new ones. Instead of developers making good games that don't sell that well because they aren't in series that have already done well, they should latch on to a name, even (or especially, I guess is the point of the article) if their game isn't that much like the earlier ones. It's interesting to see new directions in old franchises, but I'd rather see new characters that play like old games instead of just grafting old characters and situations onto games that don't seem like the originals any more.

    "A retooled, furry-themed update could be a great basis for a new Star Fox." *Massive Cringe* Honestly though Sega does sound great for Star Fox but honestly i think it should go back to its old arcadish type feel and who other than Platinum knows how to make a great replayable Arcade type game? Just add multiple routes and BOOM. Though i wouldnt mind having Retro Studios take over. And i also wouldnt mind a sequel to Assault if they can just fix the land battles because god forbid was there any other God Tier Star Fox Multiplayer than Assault's

    Sega perfectly knows what to do with Sonic, Generations and Colors are good examples of it. Besides, Hell Yeah was a fun game, but his level design was dull and not as crisp as it's necessary for a Sonic game. Besides, Arkedo is on stand-by now, and was composed of, like, ten people.

    F-Zero and Star Fox need the Retro treatment. Bad. Seeing Frictional handle a Silent Hill game would inevitably be the most horrifying game ever conceived. I'm not so sure Mega Man is safe in the hands of Capcom anymore, but I'm not sure who could manage him without soiling his holy name.

    Activision should take over for Half Life. At least we'd be getting yearly updates instead of waiting around for EP3 :)

    I know i sound like a broken record, but: People can Fly should take the reins for Doom, Visceral should continue Heretic/Hexen, and Mortal Kombat would benefit the most from creative direction by a random 12-years old.

    and for teh lulz, just imagine Ken Levine's Postal, Clive Barker's Pokemon, Tom Clancy's Farmville, or Denis Dyack's X-Men.
  • gopikmin - May 16, 2013 5:32 p.m.

    Tom Clancy is a book writer...
  • GR_AndyHartup - May 17, 2013 1:11 a.m.

    I would totally play Clive Barker's Pokemon.
