Call me odd but I think a classic MMO based on the classic sci-fi of Flash Gorden, the original Buck Rodgers and such would be so cool get a mix of classic fun.

Still waiting for my next Ultima game.
I refuse to acknowledge any game in that series past Ultima 8 (and even that's a bit iffy).

As far as I am concerned Ultima 7/2 was the highlight, and I'd kill to get another game like that.

Oh my god, the Necroscope series. I haven't read those in forever. That would be an insanely cool world to explore as an RPG.

*drools with Vasili*

Another Necroscope lover?! I'm in heaven!

Full disclosure: I have not followed the entire series... I believe I stopped off around the 5th, perhaps 6th book? There are apparently quite a few now, which always makes me wary. But yes, fan here! And now I have to dig them all out again to sate my craving.

Just look what you've done!

Necroscope, man. That's just asking to be left a tear-stained puddle of disappointment.

Although with all the Harry shards left floating around, there's an easy basis for an all-new, game-only plotline.

I'd rather have Shadowrun get a GTA/Oblivion kind of treatment. Because man, fuck raiding for top tier cyberware or whatever.

Yeah, you can't tell me that you can't get something more than a crappy fps online only game out of the two decades of storyline and games that are shadowrun?
