We’ve talked about “spiritual successors” for games, and we’ve talked about our favorites. Now I think it’s time to talk about crafting your “Perfect Game”, as it were.
I’ll give my example, as I think it might help stimulate other thought processes…
I hope that next year’s Pokemon game includes open-world elements like what Breath of the Wild had.
I still want the exploring and collecting and battling, but I also want a non-linear path, exploration, more side quests (beyond “Hey take this Pokeball/egg back to the Professor!”), and generally just a world that we can fully immerse ourselves in. Let me climb this mountain to battle & catch the Golem terrorizing the nearby village (and show me the dang size differences between Pokemon already). Let me pedal my bike up Kanto Route 17, stopping to take breaks because I’m exhausted. Let me soar through the air as I fly between towns or regions. Give us a world, and let us live in it.
What about you? What elements would make a “Perfect Game” for you?
EDIT: Ok I have a 2nd entry. I need a Majora’s Mask-type version of BotW too. Basically, just give me BotW in everything, and we’ll be good.
