1-Up provides Suggestions for Telltale Franchises.

The brain geniuses over at 1-Up have apparently run out of good ideas, so they have posted a list of franchises they'd like to see from Telltale.

The list can be found here.

My Commentary on their picks.

The Goonies: I've never seen the movie, and I don't know anybody who has especially fond memories of it, so why would Telltale release a game based on a non-existant franchise?

MacGyver:Seriously? MacGyver? The man can make anything happen with seemingly mundane objects. Do you relly think that the average gamer has the puzzle-solving skill of Richard Dean Anderson?

Beavis and Butthead: No. Just... no. No way. Nu-uh. No-ho-ho-ho no. No.

Raymond Chandler's Detective Stories: Why specifically Raymond Chandler? Why not Agatha Christie, or more obviously Sherlock Holmes? What possible reason is there to highlight the man who once said "When in doubt, have a man with a gun bust in"?

Maniac Mansion: Well, I may agree with this one, but frankly, it should have been too obvious.

    There was hope for people like you, who were fans of the movie. There was no such serious intention on the part of those involved with making the movies, though. Same goes for The Goonies' fans. Why can't you wrap your head around it? It's like you just want to argue against every and any word we'll bring up in support of it. So what, in your personal experience, The Goonies isn't memorable so it has to be the same for the majority of people?

  • His profile says that he's 16, so... yeah.

    Obviously someone who was born a decade after the movie came out is in the perfect position to judge the impact of the movie on those that grew up with it. :rolleyes:

  • Don't be a dick for the sake of it, StrongBrush. In fact, just don't be a dick.

    Let's all ignore him now

  • @nachtritter said: I own both. One as an import japanese famicom cart. The second as a US NES cart.

    They were both interesting takes on platforming games. While the first one (1986) is a straight-up action game with some puzzle aspects, the second one (1987) attempted to integrate some elements of adventure and exploration in it - similar to what Metroid did, but in a different way. They were pretty niche games that were quite different from the movie they were based on. But it might have been for the best, because I can't imagine the machines at the time being powerful enough to render a proper Goonies experience (it was 1986). SIERRA or LucasArts might have been able to do a good one.

    Goonies 2 still has a greater sense of adventure in its game design than most games today. The bridges you leap, the caves you explore, the underwater you swim, the crime house you bust through. And of course Captain Konami!

    Like you all did before. Why do you ignore what you cannot ignore?

    It was good. It's just crazy, all the stuff that was hidden under the Fratelli house! Seriously.

  • Every one settle your jets, and Nachtritter don't double post there is an edit button.

  • I think i'd rather have a Dexter game, It would have it all.

    No joke! They must have had tens of miles of underground expanse sitting beneath them. And how they managed the hordes of monsters, I'll never know.

    What's even scarier? The teems of squatters that made their homes in those caves. Like the Old Woman and Eskimo.
