    As the title says, what franchise(s) do you wish TellTale would make a game for? Here are my top four

    -Power Rangers (especially if it's within the Power Rangers RPM timeline)

    -Star Trek (This would be a good way to make Enterprise season 5)

    -WWE or Impact Wrestling ( I can see this as a fun way to throw the wrestling game genre upside down )

    -Days of out Lives (YES, the soap opera. What better way to bring in a new audience and what better genre for the TellTale style of games?!)

    Hmm, Star Trek has been begging for a good game for, I dunno, 20 years? I guess if anybody would actually focus on putting together a good story and attempting to capture the Star Trek feel instead of making yet another action oriented game, it could be TellTale. Maybe they could resurrect the script of Secret of Vulcan Fury (though sadly they wouldn't have Jimmy Doohan, DeForrest Kelley, or Leonard Nimoy to work with :() which was written by DC Fontana.

    This. There's surprisingly few games based off of Lovecraft's mythos, and the ones released are mostly trash and yeeeears old. I would love to see Telltale take a crack at it, especially when their recent games have been consistently well done. They haven't done any horror story games that I'm aware of, and this would be the perfect first entry IMO.

    Are The Walking Dead and Jurassic Park not horror? I mean, they're not exactly Lovecraftian, but I figure at least one of 'em would be considered to be horror (not that I've actually played either).

    I wouldn't call Jurassic Park horror at all really, especially Telltale's version of it :lol:...but the Walking Dead isn't so much horror as it is survival, there's nothing inherently scary about it nor is there any real "horror" element, other than zombies.

    I'll be honest: I doubt I'd buy it no matter what. Game of thrones would've been so hard on my wish list, but even though the games are out there, I don't buy them (backlog, y'know...I can't even find time to start The wolf among us, despite fables being an awesome franchise). So a Sandman telltale game series...I'd probably pass on that as well.

    But still: Cthulhu? Yes. Yes! YES!!! :D Damn...I WISH I would've come up with that. My hat of to you, Veho. Brilliant idea!

    Erm...I don't know how you define horror, but it sure fits all the boxes for psychological horror out there...

    -desperate situations
    -tough moral choices or dilemma's
    -revealing that society is but a thin layer, and that real horror comes from within
    -a look in a dark mirror as your actions that reveal you're not exactly innocent all the time
    -a false sense of safety

    I admit music and sounds could've been better, and the pace was perhaps a bit too slow to really scare, but still...the damn thing's in my top 10 (or even top 5?) of horror games/movies...and not without reason.

    Except those define practically all of Telltale's story driven games.

    Look at Game of Thrones, it has plenty of desperate situations in it, whether it's choosing to kill XYZ or backing down etc etc, and those decisions definitely question morality. The society of the Game of Thrones games are "but a thin layer", and some of the choices you have to make can have horrific consequences, and there are tons of choices that force you to choose between two lesser evils. And it's Game of Thrones, of course you're constantly lured into a false sense of safety.

    Every single "qualification" for psychological horror you seem to have is present in nearly all of their games, even the trash that was Back to the Future had most of those elements. Hell, I'm pretty sure that's not even the actual definition of psychological horror in general, that sounds exactly like any survival genre, not horror.

    I would really love to see a Telltale version of the Enterprise novels that would essentially make up season 5. Hell, just call the game "Star Trek Entetprise - Season 5: a Telltale Game" All of the cast is still around for voice overs and they would still be able to work their respective projects.

    In regards to Power Rangers. If anyone has watched Power Rangers RPM, you know why that particular timeline would be great for a Telltale expansion. Maybe Saban and Telltale could incorporate some GoBusters elements since that Sentai is being skipped by the Power Rangers franchise.

    I want to say something about my Days of our Lives suggestion but I'll go into that a bit later. Too busy over here lol.

    Non gaming media I would like

    NFL ( ballers is interesting so a game about the life of a NFL player could be neat)

    Def Jam (the life of a Rap star would be cool)

    The American revolution (could be cool)

    Gravity falls (it would be epic)

    Steven universe (I would love it so much)

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    You know, I never did get into Enterprise. I need to give it another shot; I heard it was pretty good when helmed by Manny Coto.

    Season 4 of Enterprise was amazing! Enterprise to me felt like Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow. IMO Trek has too many damn aliens. Enterprise kept it simple limiting the main players and actually spent time giving us more background for those main players.

    I spent more time on Vulcan and Andoria on Enterprise than in any other Trek series. I love the moral stories of Trek but I also want to explore the cultures within the Trek universe, including United Earth. BTW to complete my Pokemon analogy, Red/Blue/Yellow had a nice number of 151 Pokemon. Hell, I used to remember all of their names and then Nintendo kept adding, and adding and adding and after awhile I was just numb to new Pokemon. Instead of feeling like characters, new Pokemon started to feel like "random monsters" to me.
