What DC hero/anti hero would you like to see with their own free roam type videogame? What game mechanics would you add that could really effect the abilities of the character. I’ll start by saying I’d obviously want a swamp thing game. Free roam, swamp like map could make great fun for how he manipulates plants to move around or fight his enemies. Maybe add gear or skins of his different looks he’s had over the years.
I love DC, but not really a gamer so would love a DC game that it doesn’t feel like I need to be particularly skilled to play, but also have the full in DC universe feel.
I cannot confirm if I saw your icon before looking at the thread, but a Swamp Thing video game came to mind as well. I think it would be cool as an RPG where different types of vegetation and skills can be upgraded. For instance, an ability to control trees. Then, a skill to resurrect from moss.
Since shows now have made spin-offs common, it would be cool if Rocksteady made a Deathstroke or Azrael game.
To add on to my last post, if an RPG Swamp Thing game is made, he would have a skill tree. Seems fitting.
Something in the style of Grand Theft Auto meets the Suicide Squad could be a worthwhile pick-up for the ol’ Atari Jaguar.
I always thought they could make an amazing Nightwing game in the style of Assassin’s Creed where you could run across rooftops and bounce off walls.
@Vroom, I like your GTA idea, but I think the Suicide Squad is too big so I’m replacing them with a solo character, Joker.
A Wonder Woman game in the vein of 2018’s God of War.
The Swamp Thing show reminded me alot of Dead Space series so that would be cool if Swamp Thing got a dedeicated open world horror themed video game.
Environments ranging from the swamp to the hospital of course…
A deep, epic and well done Superman game. I’m fed up with the excuses that it’s impossible due to his powers. BS! Proper and motivated creative minds can and will find a way. This is WAY overdue. Somebody make this happen!
Heres an example off the top of my head. Set the game up like a Metroid, not necessarily a “Metroidvainia” (though that would be cool), but have the game start out with him having all of his powers stripped away (due to Red K or whatever). Superman would then have to traverse the world gaining his powers back one by one. Then at the end have him fight Zod or Darkseid as the final boss.
Bomm. There ya go!
A 2D Flash game that is similar to the classic Sonic games.
Here’s a video on the open world Flash game that never saw the light of day. Too bad to, it looked like it was gonna be awesome…
I’d love a new Superman game. And for people who think you can’t do Superman in a video because of his powers…just look at the Arkham series. The game mechanics are a template for how Superman can work in a game.
Detective mode is basically x-ray vision. Punching through a thin wooden wall to grab a criminal could easily be changed to a brick wall for super strength. Batman hearing conversations on the street level with what I assume is a really good microphone is basically Clark’s hearing. Gliding could be fine tuned to be flight (hell, the Lego games have done amazing flight mechanics for Superman) and I’m sure heat vision and freeze breath could just be fine tuned from Batman’s gadgets.
You could have stealth missions as Clark where you can use your powers to obtain information without anyone noticing.
As for villains, Superman has quite a few that would translate well. If you’re one of the people arguing “he’s too powerful! How can you hurt him??” Well, he’s got villains who use kryptonite (Luthor and Metallo), similar kryptonians on his level (Bizarro, Zod and his army), powerful creatures (Parasite), Magic-based villains (Mxyzptlk) and other aliens (Brainiac, Mongul, Darkseid) plus other villains like Toyman, Prankster, intergang, Terra-man, etc
It’s entirely possible
Yes, I’m repeating myself. I’m an old man; I’m allowed.
I want a free-roam Booster Gold game - not just through today’s Metropolis, but through time. 18th, 25th, 31st, and 853rd centuries at the very least.
Multiple endings depending on how you change the timeline, ala Chono Trigger.
@super-squirrel…that’s an amazing idea! I would love that!
@Super-Squirrel I’d be all over that game. Also, make sure to cast the Booster voice actor from JLU and Batman: Brave and the Bold.
A flashpoint video game
A open world coop rpg game
Red Hood, Azrael, Nightwing and Robin, Justice League
