So imagine for a second that you're FASA Interactive, and you're making a game based on a beloved tabletop role-playing game that successfully blends a cyberpunk setting with orcs, elves and magic. It's got a rich, detailed near-future setting and tons of potential for different styles of gameplay, and it's already been made into two console RPGs, one of which is remembered as one of the best games ever to grace the SNES. With all the power of the Xbox 360 and PC at your disposal, what kind of game would you make?
If you said "a multiplayer-only first-person shooter with minimal plot elements, and… and flying!" then your name is Mitch Gitelman and we hate you.
