What gaming world should have a post-apocalyptic sequel?

Many gaming worlds envelop you in saccharine happiness from the start, but eventually succumb to some sort of tragedy in one form or another. Others tend to be wrought with what seems to be an unnatural state of perpetual glee. Nintendo's Animal Crossing is one of those games whose world feels a little too joyful for its own good--so we thought it'd make the perfect setting for an apocalypse. Tom Nook would be much more interesting if he sold weapons and Twinkies instead of home decor. And instead of earning furniture, you could just loot deserted buildings with abandon. Which game world would be your pick? Let us know in the comments below.

Apparently, this is our last week in existence, so be sure to check out The Top 7... Most embarassing apocalypses in video games and The perfect video game team for halting the apocalypse before the end.

    We need a Star Wars game set during the Yuuzhan Vong Invasion, which was an apocalypse level event in the SWEU. For video game original universes, I'd say that Mercenaries would be pretty interesting after the end.

    A Pokemon game in a destroyed world! Just think about how great it could be!

    Looking through my games, the only thing I can really see that would fit is DMC- Maybe, in one game, Dante fails to stop the world 'ending', and in the sequel he's just fighting to keep it under control, or save what's LEFT of the human race?

    My top picks to see would be for Fallout 3, Walking Dead and Rage...wait...

    Well obviously far cry 3, since it is like skyrim with guns so adding the apocalypse to that would be awesome, especially since there isn't anything like skyrim but an apocalypse.

    So you want fallout?

    It would be cool to play a Phoenix Wright game where the whole the justice system is run by deranged mutants.

    Hm... Assassin's Creed Apocolypse... I like the sound of that.

    Something in the Star Wars universe. Also, I absolutely loved Warzone 2100, and still play it now (get it free online somewhere), but it'd be great to see a sequel. I know it'd never happen, but I can hope

    I think Mirror's Edge would be great, who wouldn't love to free run over rooftops, ultimate punching zombies in the face?

    Not to mention utilizing the frostbite 2 engine for running along collapsing buildings.

    Grand Theft Auto would be much more interesting when everybody else is trying to steal things too. Katamari Damacy would be a lot more morbid if everything you rolled up was dead or destroyed Just Cause could be loads of fun if you have a huge island filled with crazed survivors. Just imagine Mad Max being played with the Just Cause gameplay
