If you had to make a rail shooter for a video game series, which franchise would you choose?
As a publisher you've been tasked to come up with a rail shooter for a certain video game. You get to choose which developer makes the game, and you have the rights to any franchise. So what series would you add a rail shooter / light gun game to?
I'd very much like to see a Rainbow Six rail shooter with squad commands and the rules of engagement. While it'd have to be faster paced than most R6 games, I have a feeling this might be an entertaining arcade romp. Failing that, Mass Effect or Ratchet & Clank deserve something in their series along those lines ^^
Mario without a doubt. Why? Because then I could put the genre into the most colorful series i've ever seen. I don't think I've ever seen a "colorful" rail shooter. of course, this might not be the best idea from a business perspective. but, hell, who are we if we didn't step outside of the box?
Well you are the one at the helm so you can decide what goes on! I find House of the Dead; Overkill and Time Crisis 4 quite fancy, but super Mario I can see being a good rail shooter! ^^
I really only say this one just for the idea of mario being in the form of a shooter. One of the problems i have with shooters is that, for me, they tend to lack color. I really admire a shooter that isn't gritty or serious.
Ghoul Panic and Point Blank on the PS1 (both by Namco as Gcon games) will be right up your alley then methinks! ^^
I'd like to see a Dino Crisis rail-shooter. Now, there was Dino Stalker that was released on the PS2, but that wasn't on-rails since you actually controlled the character with the D-Pad on the light-gun (needless to say it was awkward and horrible to manoeuvre ).
As for who would develop it, probably the team who worked on Dino Crisis 2, since that had quite an arcade-ish feel to it anyway.
I originally thought Dino Crisis was a light gun game, needless to say because of the word "Crisis". I can see where you're coming from, and I am aware of Dino Stalker but I never played it myself. I bet that was horrible!
I actually thought the same thing about Dino Crisis, first heard of it by name only. A fellow gamer listing off games he was into. Thought it was a spin-off of the Time Crisis series. Before I could cross-reference info on the Internet.
