I personally don't really watch The Endurance Run series a whole lot because I've actually never played any of the Persona games so it doesn't really interest me too much (not sayin it's a bad game or whatever) bu it seems like it's obviously got TONS of content and hours of play. So I was just kind of thinking what would make a great game to cover once GB's had their way with Persona but I also don't really know of too many games with that many dungeons and what not to run through so basically the main point of this thread is I want to see what you guys think a great game would be to cover IF they did do another Endurance Run thing.

any long ass RPG
 
Since they are so enthusiastic about Fallout: new vegas and Fable 3, those two would be cool. However, a lot more people play those two franchises so there wouldn't be much of a surprise to things, it would be more like any other game guide  walkthrough.

well it would have to be something they have NOT played before that's basically rule number 1

It would need to be quirky and fun, but also long, so it'd probably have to be an RPG. I just don't think anything could live up to it, so who knows.

The games would have to have a degree of choice involved, the good thing about Persona 4 is that I could play very different game, with different social links and personas, granted the basic plot would stay the same but it could be a radically different experience.

NBA Hangtime.
 
They should try and beat all the teams with the Vancouver Grizzlies without losing.
 
Now THATS an Endurance Run.

Lol really? I wouldn't know, I don't scan through the forums like that to even know. Do yeah, sorry I guess?
 
Guess you do though since you know it's around 800 hehe. :P

I'm thinking something obscure, you have a point, warxsnake, a big release would probably not be as interesting since everyone will have played it, so a semi-obscure jrpg was the way to go, and a similarly obscure game would make a good candidiate. 

#10 Posted by CitizenJP (1021 posts) -

Hmmm yeah it wouldn't be as fun if they did like Fable or Fallout like you guys said. Tough one to decide, I just don't know of that many RPGs. I sadden myself. :/

Super mario bros

Something mad japanese. Not an MMO, the matrix endurance thing was tedious at best for most of its run, not a fault of Ryan or Vinny it's just that MMO's are not fun to watch.

#16 Posted by CitizenJP (1021 posts) -
@Leakster: Yeah good point haha.
#17 Posted by lightsoda (541 posts) -

Wasn't P4 relatively new when they started? I think it'd have to be something they haven't played, and is somewhat recent. Buuut... P3?

Tooo true, dude, but nothing like Baroque, that'S waaay hardcore, and boring to watch. 
#19 Posted by ryanwho (12082 posts) -

Something that's not boring or shitty, in other words, nothing that's been mentioned so far. The holidays are coming up, a 30 hour or less ER would make more sense than diving into another huge game.

#20 Posted by Thekeenan (74 posts) -

More like they will take a few months of no ER. I am pretty sure they mention they wanted to take a break for a bit. So I expect at least a month or two once persona is done before any possibility of a new ER being started. 
 
With that said any game coming out in the 4th quarter, (likely to the latter part of the quarter), of this year would seem to be fair game. In addition the criteria of being long enough and obscure enough would need to be met.

#21 Posted by ryanwho (12082 posts) -

That would normally make sense, but Q1 is more crowded than Q4 at this point. If they want to take a break, they would probably be better off doing that come January when all the delayed games start pouring out at once.

#22 Edited by YetiAntics (1490 posts) -

I really would not want another ER actually. 
the ER seems like a one hit wonder.  
 
If anything, I'd like a ER of Champions Online.

No problem, I've just been seeing a new thread with the same topic for the past week or so every time I refresh the homepage.
 
 
As many have mentioned, Jeff and Vinny said (during the PAX Bombcast, I believe) that they were going to take a break after this ER before starting a new one. I would guess somewhere in between 2-6 months. As has also been mentioned, they won't pick a relatively popular game like Fallout, as it wouldn't be nearly as entertaining or garner as much viewership.
 
I wouldn't be surprised if they pick another SMT game. Everyone keeps mentioning Persona 3, but Vinny's already played it, so I highly doubt that they'd make an Endurance Run of it. Vinny said on one of the recent Bombcasts that he played a bit more of Devil Summoner, so, who knows, maybe they'll pick that.
 
 

Or, they'll just wait for Persona 5.
