Video games have sampled a great many artistic styles and utilized a lot of various settings and atmospheres. But is there one type or style of game that you've never seen, but keep hoping will eventually arrive?
The reason I put a picture of Dark Souls here is because I've always wanted a game based in the Middle Ages or Dark Ages, and From Software's spiritual sequel seemed to be inspired by the eras I mention here. But I'd want a historically accurate epic adventure, kind of like what Team Bondi did with L.A. Noire . I'm not saying I want a mystery, but I want that kind of meticulous attention to historical detail and an open-world, free-roaming structure.
I'd want it to be an RPG, with plenty of depth and lots of fantastic scenery and imagery. Whoever makes it needs to put a premium on the setting, though, because that's the primary reason I'd be playing the game. And there are many stories written about various adventures and quests in the Dark Ages and Middle Ages; the missions, characters and plot could be based on that true-to-life information. Obviously, a lot of it may have been exaggerated but that's the case with historical records everywhere. I just don't a want writer to put a fantastical spin on it; I want to feel like I'm running around Europe in a totally dangerous and chaotic time.
What about you?
