Conker's Bad Fur Day - Huge 3D open world platformer / action adventure. Show off next gen physics and scale.

Viva Pinata - Again, huge open world, hybrid safari/Pokemon collect em all type game.

Kameo - Are you seeing a pattern here? :P Huge open world! Dungeons! Magic! Orcs! Basically a next gen open world fantasy Zelda type game.

They won't do any of those though.

1. Age of Empires

2. Banjo Kazooie

3. Conker

Yay! I'm glad someone else said this!

I don't care that MS wants to focus on Xbox instead of PC. There are plenty of great games on PC without them.

The only thing I want from them is another AOE or AOM. And if they aren't going to do it, I'd rather they sell the IP than sit on it.

Very much agreed. Heck, there are 10s of exceptional studios who would kill to get a chance to work on the IP and would probably do a good job out of it.

In that same vein, MS can find another studio to develop a new Perfect Dark, and leave the new Rare to flounder around with Kinect.

Let's pretend they are still into gaming.

I think I'd go with.

1.Blinx the time sweeper, such an amazing story, truly timeless gameplay, just about everything you could ever want about a game starring a cat with a vacuum cleaner.

2.Kabuki Warriors, (Also known in japan as Bukkaki Warriors,) Another amazing game, with truly interesting battle mechanics.

3.Greg Hastings tournament Painball. I don't think paintball has ever been this visceral and intense.

What other timeless classics would you suggest SW?

Kind of sad when someone does a top 3 list and that's all they can come up with.

Age of Empires for sure. Despite other fans, i absolutely loved Age of Empires 3, especially the music and its artstyle. I'd kill for another one to begin from the era where the last one ended.

Also, Phantom Dust. A criminally underrated IP and a great OG Xbox game, a must own for splitscreen gaming (was a must own for MP online as well, tho not anymore). Think 3rd person arena shooter combined with the Magic The Gathering card game. Extremely addictive, unique game.

Hey, hey, It's not cool to judge my taste man. I mean YOU were the one that paraded mass effect around as a proper RPG if I want to show my love for a cat and his vacuum cleaner it's my choice.
