I know there has been a thread like this before but when I searched the only thing I was able to find was two blogs on the subject. Anyways..
I'm not the first to say it and I won't be the last. Psi-Ops was one of the most overlooked games of the last generation. While the controls for aiming and moving are a bit clunky in comparison to most modern shooters, the psychic abilities more than made up for it. Psi-Ops was able to handle telekinesis better than any game before or after it. Even the Star Wars games couldn't do the force as well as this game. There is nothing quite so satisfying as throwing your enemies off of a building and hear them scream as they fall to their death. Or being able to use your pyrokinesis to explodes the barrel right next to them and watch them run around as they attempt to put out the flames. Or taking control of their mind and making them shoot their teammates and then having them off themselves. All of the various mechanics work together so wonderfully and I can only imagine what this game would be like with modern controls and better visuals. But mostly I just want to throw more guys off of buildings.
I've never been a huge fan of classic arcade style fighting games. I never had the patience or the skill to learn all the various combos and techniques. All I wanted to do was beat the crap out of stuff. That's why War of the Monster is the perfect game for me. It's not a particularly deep game but there's a great amount of enjoyment you get out of destroying building and throwing tanks. In War of the Monsters the world is your oyster. A giant, exploding, destroyable oyster. This game captures the heart and soul of those 50's B-movies so well, right down to the music and look of the monsters. The monsters themselves aren't all that different, with basically a light and heavy type and two that can fly. The charm of the characters doesn't come from the move set though, but the sheer amount of personality in each character. You have the typical monsters such as your King Kong clone, your Godzilla copy, and your Japanese robot, but you also get far more creative enemies like a giant eyeball with a body composed of electricity. If that's not enough all monsters have various costumes that greatly change the look. The giant eyeball can be made to look like a giant frog, or that giant ape can be a yeti or robot ape. Best of all if you have a save for Twisted Metal Black you can unlock Mecha Sweet Tooth as a skin for one of the characters. A sequel with online multiplayer and a larger cast of characters would satisfy the ten year old in me to no end.
What video games do you think need a sequel?
