DEEZ Nutz posted a topic in All Things HorrorGiven the immense fun and entertainment Gun Media has been able to deliver with this game, I've been wondering what other possible slasher franchises you'd like to see them take a crack at. Being that Friday the 13th isn't one of my main 3 favourite slashers (put down your machetes, it's still in the top 5), I've been pondering what they could do with other lisences. Here are my top 3: 1. Nightmare on Elm Street This is hands down my favourite slasher franchise. I just love the psychological horror aspect and I feel it adds an extra layer of fear onto an already terrifying physical threat. Not to mention the twisted humour and personality of the main villian, which is something you don't get with Jason, being that he doesn't speak. I think if Gun had the chance to make this game and Robert Englund was on board to play Freddy once again, this would be a MASTERPIECE! 2. Scream Possibly one of my favourite movies of all time, Scream is near and dear to my heart. It challenged pretty much every major horror movie trope in the book and I think this could be translated into game form in a very meta way. I have no idea how the game mechanics would work but maybe you could have two killers who can be killed but are very quick and agile. Or maybe the killer could start off in the group of survivors and have to put on the killer outfit before killing. That way he could take it off after a kill to blend in and everyone would have to figure out who it is. I honestly considered putting this as number one, though I know many will disagree as to how good the movies were. It also has a distinct advantage of being a relatively modern franchise so the original cast are not that much older and are still alive and kicking (I think) 3. Child's Play I know, I know, you're going to say "what about Halloween?!" I feel Mike and Jason would be far too similar in gameplay mechanics and it wouldn't feel like a separate game. Chucky on the other hand, is quick, small and, much like Freddy, has a dark sense of humour which would translate well to gameplay. Instead of the players hiding under beds from Chucky, he could run from place to place, ready to get the jump on unsuspecting players by hiding himself. He also has a large number of special and hilarious kills at his disposal. I know these are all pipedreams and Gun has enough on it's plate as-is and probably will do for the foreseeable future but I'm very interested in what the community has to say about the possibility of future slasher games. TL;DR: Jet fuel can't melt dank memes. *Sorry if the images are too big, I'm posting from my phone and can't tell.
