I have been looking through Steam recently, and I can't find anything that piques my interest. I get bored of seeing the same type of shooters or RPGs as I go down the list. Different names, sure, but pretty much the same game. RPGs tend to focus heavily on character creation, which is okay if the game is done right, but I notice more and more that it becomes a copout of having to create any kind of real character with a real back story, and write any kind of character development into the plot.

I also notice some games try to be more complex than they need to be, trying to be something more than they are, or trying to add mechanics that just don't fit in the genre. I see more and more games that try to become an investment of your time, and some times I just want to be able to jump into the action when I want it, and hop off once I'm done.

So, I've been thinking of taking some time to start developing my own game. I have some ideas, nothing too serious yet, but I've worked in Unreal Engine for quite some time now.

So, what sort of stuff would people be interested in, to see if any of my interests intersect?

I would like to see:

  • More strategy, specifically:
    • Real-time tactics, like Ground Control or World in Conflict.
    • Real-time strategy, like Command and Conquer, Total Annihilation, etc. Especially if it is focused on a great singleplayer campaign.
  • More god-games: I'm still waiting for a new Populous or Black and White
    • Throwing Dungeon Keeper-like games in here, too, they're sort of like god games. We got Dungeons 3 recently and the excellent War for the Overworld as well, but we need more. It doesn't have to necessarily be a dungeon, either.
  • More action-strategy games. I'm talking like the Battlezone game that came out 15 years ago or so. Building a base and raising an army from a first-person perspective is pretty immersive and fun.
  • More pure-stealth games. Tired of stealth-action, give me stealth-avoidance. Bring back light gems and sound meters.
  • More flight sims. Especially the sort-of-realistic-but-also-casual kind. Like I want to play with my instruments and have somewhat realistic radar and flight models, but I also don't want to spend five hours learning how to start my engines. Talking games like Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator, Freelancer, Tachyon: The Fringe, and so on.

Turn-based mecha SRPG like Front Mission. While we may already had Battletech, Super Robot Wars series and more recently SD Gundam G Generation series but genre itself having too little population.

I also want to see more open-world games with fast-paced combat similar to Fable and Kingdom of Amalur. Instead we got countless of Elder Scroll clones that are too slow for their own good.

Survival Horror, not to be confused with the hide in a locker/ no weapons hide n' seek Stealth Horror genre popularised by Outlast.

I mean the legit, find ammo and shotgun blast freaks brain matter all over the wall, just to immediately regret using your last shell kind_

This generation outside remasters we've had Resident Evil and The Evil Within. And that's it!

3D Platformers 100%. There's been some good ones in the last few years, but I'm just craving for more. It's a genre I've always loved.

I'd like to see more online RPG, fantasy world. Something like Black Desert. Have you ever played it? It's my fave one. So breathtaking. The gameplay reminds me of Middle-Earth. You can find everything and more bout this game here https://bddatabase.net/us/ . So useful!

Simple singleplayer 3D RPGs that let you create and customise your own character. Things like Fallout and Skyrim and Deus Ex if Deux Ex had character creation and third person.

Mech games. The walking battle tank kind instead of the anime kind.

Probably more JRPG base/town building game. I always enjoys the progression in these games, started fairly normal but will go into more wacky designs later.

The way PC AAA FPS use to play.

  • No regenerating health
  • F5 to quick save F9 to quick load
  • Proper lean mechanics
  • MP with dedicated servers and modding
  • Slower pace
  • Not arcadey gameplay but also not simulation somewhere in the middle for the perfect balance

Yeah same... after Mario Odyssey, I've just craved a similar type of game. I've been so desperate for a good platformer that I've even contemplated buying either a Wii U or Wii again so I can play through Mario Galaxy 1 & 2 again. Lol.

A Hat in Time is a pretty good game though, but obviously nowhere near the calibre of a Nintendo platformer.

Ones with alien heroes.

Ones where you play as ninjas that aren't the leaders of their clans. As in, not like Ninja Gaiden or Tenchu.

Ones with robot heroes.

Fantasy MMOs that aren't set in Tolkien-esque realms for once.

I loved both Mario Odyssey and A Hat in Time. I'm looking forward to playing New Super Lucky's Tale on the Switch too. Just shipped from Amazon so hoping to receive it next week sometime.

I'd like more life simulation games like The Sims. There is only one other game being developed to challenge them called Paralives but its probably years away from completion but I'd like EA to get some real competition.

This untapped market could be opened up because EA has done so little to improve the series over the last several years.

The building tools in Paralives looks powerful but there hasn't been much shown of the characters or their customization and animations in the game and if those look terrible, the game may only be useful for its powerful building tools and not much else.

Sims 5 will likely be a total disaster filled with live service microtransactions so if a developer was able to start developing a new game now, they could steal all these frustrated people away from EA when the game flops at release... depending on how badly EA screws up the release. I'm predicting a Simcity 2013 level of disaster for Sims 5. Always online, aggressive DRM, lootboxes and that type of thing. Just like previous games, it'll will be barebones at release with zero content which will also hurt it.

RPGs with turn-based combat. Everything seems to be moving toward real time combat and it's awful.
