I would bring back Pandemic. The Saboteur is one of my all time favorites and I really want a sequel done by the same people that made the first. Another team might not get the feeling right. I hope a new Star Wars: Battlefront is made by anyone though because it could be great.

Bioware.

HAH.

Ensemble Studios. Age of Empires Online is an ok game, but it just isn't the same.

Boom!

I would like to grant 38 Studios another chance, that whole mess was a tragedy.

Right there with ya, OP. Mine has to be Pandemic. I loved loved loved LOVED The Saboteur, and thought the Mercenaries franchise always had a lot of potential.

I'm with you. I feel like they got a bit of a bum rap. I feel like both Mercs 2 (mediocre game that got bad reviews) and The Saboteur (AWESOME game that got mediocre reviews) got a little shafted and the company crumbled shortly after.

I never did beat The Saboteur (got too hooked on the ambient challenges) might go pop that thing in again tonight :)

Westwood, on condition that they be free from EA.

GSC.

I know they kinda went on to form Vostok Games, but I'd kill to have a GSC developed STALKER 2.

#24 Posted by AndrewB (7782 posts) -

Yeah, it would have to be Black Isle for me too. That original Fallout 3 had so much potential, and Baldur's Gate III would have existed (for better or worse). At least the collaboration between Obsidian and InExile includes a lot of the big talent from Black Isle.

#25 Posted by PenguinDust (12843 posts) -

My first thoughts were Westwood and Bullfrog, but upon further consideration, I'm going to say 38 Studios. Not so much for the Copernicus MMO which in all likelihood was headed towards destruction like so many other MMOs these days, but because I would have loved to have seen another Kingdoms of Amalur game. Maybe I really mean Big Huge Games rather than 38 Studios since Reckoning was their game. It had problems, certainly, but I think an sequel could have improved upon the original.

I'm not sure they are fully dead yet. Both Viva Piñata and Nuts and Bolts were great. If they keep making kinect games however... that's a different story.

I would hope that them being owned by Mircosoft they're privy to the NextBox and all its in workings so they're cooking up something for that, whether that's a super casual game like their recent games have been though..

Sierra, first games I played were Kings Quest, Space Quest, Quest for Glory, had a floppy disc boot leg of my friends older brothers Leisure Suit Larry games and when I got a CD rom drive I got Phantasmagoria. But really all I want is another Kings Quest or Quest for Glory.QFG was pretty much Mass Effect before it existed you could carry your character and loot from one game to the next.

It would've been nice to see Rockstar Vancouver get another Bully game out the door.

Yes, I remember Nox (apart the famous C&C series) being a real good action RPG Diablo style. :)

#38 Posted by Hexuality (35 posts) -

Pandemic because the Battlefronts were the very essence of my jam, Full Spectrum Warrior is basically real-time Xcom, and Destroy All Humans could be ridiculously silly next generation.

My first thought was Sierra, although Bullfrog and early Lucasarts are strong contendors.

Mercs 2 was OK , i had a lot of dumb fin with it but the saboteur was a masterpiece by comparison

The Bitmap Brpthers or Psygnosis if anything just to see what their Splinter Cell like game would have looked like.

#44 Posted by gamerpigeon (441 posts) -

Bizarre Creations - PGR 3 and 4 are arcade racing perfection rivalled only by Burnout Paradise imo

Rare - as good as dead. Its strange to think that Microsoft sort of wasted the talents of the company but also used them tactically quite well. Just wish they made real games more often. ALOT more often

Eh, fuck it. This thread is making me depressed.

Free Radical. Sure, they are still around and now are Crytek UK, but it isn't looking like there will be a new Timesplitters anytime soon. I need a new Timesplitters, or at least an HD Collection.
