Games That Should Be Made. Right now. Immediately.

Ever played a game you got so sucked into you just wanted more? As the credits roll, you think to yourself "Holy shit this game was awesome. I bet the Developers are already working on a sequel", only to have the years go by without anything happening. It can be several reasons to this. Maybe the game didn't sell so well? Maybe the company behind it had its own trouble, and doesn't exist anymore? Maybe you're just insane who thought that piece of shit was actually good? Well, sitting here at work with nothing better to do, I might as well compile my own list of games that should be made, for the sake of humanity. Or at least for me.
 

Dark Cloud 3

Dark Cloud 2 (known as Dark Chronicle in some regions) was one of my favourite games ever for the PS2. It had everything I wanted in a game; platforming, some RPG elements, resource-gathering and building up settlements, timetraveling, you name it. Awesome voiceacting and impressive graphics (for its time) just made me cherish this title even more, and I think I've played through it at least four times front to back. Then...nothing. Level5, the company behind the game, seems to have no intention whatsoever to make a sequel. Ever. Some debate that their White Knight Chronicles was their intended sequel to the now dead Dark Cloud series, but that's bullshit in my eyes. Just give me a true sequel worthy to be called Dark Cloud 3, and don't ride the popular "Hey let's ignore Microsoft"-horse so many Japanese companies seem to do.
 

Chrono Trigger 2

Chrono Trigger to the SNES was another game I could play over and over again. Yes I know, Chrono Cross was more or less the direct followup to Chrono Trigger, but I'm not satisfied! I want the same people who worked on the first game to return and deliver a true Chrono Trigger 2 in all its glory to the next-gen consoles!
 

X-Com: UFO Defense 2

The first X-Com along with the second one, Terror From the Deep, were the only ones in the long-running serie to be remotely good. Apocalypse, the third game, was passable, but since then it has only gone downhill fast. I heard they're even releasing a new X-Com game this year...and it's a FPS?! Christ, someone should just install the first game again, play it through, and realize what made it so freaking awesome. Give me a true sequel to that one. Please.
 
Enough ranting. Get to work!

Yes to Chrono Trigger 2!
 
And also: A new X-Wing game! A new Pilotwings! And a new Star Fox!

Posted by skrutop

Yes to all of those.  Yes also to spellcheck.

Edited by Scrumdidlyumptious

Many of Level-5's games like Dark Cloud are funded by Sony, so I think if it ever happens (and I really hope it does) they will ignore Microsoft.

Games that should be made, and probably will be: Bayonetta 2, Shadow Complex 2. 

Games that should be made, but might not be: The World Ends With You 2, Viewtiful Joe 3, Metroid Prime 4, The Darkness 2, Eternal Darkness 2 and Project Zero (Fatal Frame) V.

Games that should be made, but are pretty much guaranteed not to be: Zack & Wiki 2, God Hand 2, Mega Man Battle Network 7, Mega Man Zero 5.

How would you feel about Dark Cloud 3 or a Chrono Trigger 2 as a DS or 3DS game?  Do they need to be next gen console games or would you be satisfied by a handheld game being the direct sequels to these games?  With Level 5's recent successes on the Nintendo portable (Professor Layton, Dragon Quest IX), I was wondering what your take might be on their route.

Posted by Phantom_Crash

A new Star Wars Rogue Squadron (For PC and non-nintendo consoles) 
A new Star Wars Pod Racer 
A remake of Zelda Ocarina of Time (For 360 and PS3 as a downloadable game) 
A new Freelancer 
Battlefield 3 
Elder Scrolls 5 or new Bethesda RPG

Posted by Cincaid
@Icemael: Oh hell yes, God Hand 2. 
 
@PenguinDust: DS is...alright. Certainly better than nothing! But yeah, I more or less understand Level5 would never release such a game to X360 at least. And I agree, Layton and DQ to the DS were (are) awesome games.

Chrono Trigger 2 wouldn't be bad on DS, but I think a lot of people want a next-gen Dark Cloud 3. A DS version would feel gimped compared to Dark Cloud 2, which had so much to do.

Aren't the White Knight Chronicles games supposed to be Dark Cloud and Dark Chronicle's successors, though?

I know of a few games that need to be made :) 
 
None of them are sequels to existing franchises though, and one of them I am currently in the process of developing (just wrapping up the design stage now) so i'm hardly about to spill the beans on it yet ;)

@FirePrince: That was show with big robots in arenas, right?  Maybe I'm remembering wrong.

For X-Wing, you need to go see the president of Lucasarts and convince him that The Force Unleashed is not the future of their company.
 
For Pilotwings, you need to find the members of Factor 5, and find a way to let them finish their Pilotwings game for the Gamecube that was canceled when they went with Sony (and their demise).
 
And for Star Fox, you will have to kidnap Miyamoto, and convince him to take a gun, and point it at the back of the head developer of Platinum Games, and force them to make the next Star Fox, as they requested it to be done.

Chrono Trigger 2 probably won't happen! But since we're suggesting games that probably won't get made, I'll go ahead and suggest Panzer Dragoon Wii. Everything about it is too awesome to become reality.
