LabyrinthI’m a huge Jim Henson fan. I especially love his two non-Muppet movies, Labyrinth and Dark Crystal and I feel Labyrinth is long over due to get a better game made for it. Lucasarts made a game based on the movie, Labyrinth in 1986 for the Apple II which is great and all, but I want a new one. An updated game version of the movie would have so many great possibilities on a next generation consoles. Here you have an epic journey with hundreds of possibilities for great levels, puzzle solving and characters. The art style of the movie alone would make for pretty graphics and cinematics on next gen. The music in the movie, created and sung by David Bowie would sound amazing in a game that could actually have the lyrics and all. Of course, you couldn’t follow the original story because we all know how to solve the puzzles then, but if you used all the characters from the original movie except Sara and Toby, and created a new story and hero to work their way through the labyrinth, you could pull off a great game. So, Jim Henson Production, what are you waiting for? Contact SquareEnix and get them working on a new Labyrinth game for me.
The Princess BrideOkay, most guys cringe when they are forced to watch this movie, but it has the Dread Pirate Roberts in it and that should merit a video game alone. The characters are perfect for a video game: Wesley/Dread Pirate Roberts, a swashbuckling hero, Inigo, the master of sword fighting, and Fezzik, the giant with a heart of gold. These characters scream put me in a video game. Sure Buttercup doesn’t sing perfect female hero, but someone needs to be saved in the long run; it is a video game after all. Imagine a huge fire swamp level containing the giant rat creatures, the random fire flashes, and the lightening sand pits. You could even throw in mini games or something, where you sail the seas as a pirate. Again, the original story may not work for the video game version, but as long as the creators give me my three favorite heroes from the movie, I’ll be happy.
Buffy the Vampire SlayerI know two games have already come out for this TV series, but what I want is an MMORPG for the series. The last episode of Buffy left the concept open for hundreds of slayers in the Buffyverse and you could easily create several races for people to choose beside slayers like witches, werewolves, vampires, watchers, and demons. The possibilities for quests would be endless and you could set the universe in the real world which would be cool. Kind of like a Second Life for Buffy fans. Joss Whedon, call me and we’ll talk MMORPG for Buffy and Angel fans.
