Despite it’s problems Batman Arkham Knight is one of the most successful games of 2015 so far (both commercially and critically), Rocksteady have made it clear that after making 3 Batman games they’re finally done with the character and the world of batman and would like to move on to other things:
“Anything we do is a collective decision between Rocksteady, Warner Brothers, and DC Comics. But it was something that we were really pushing for because we had a really clear vision for how this story should end, and the way we wanted it to end.
“We’ve done all we can do here… it’s kind of time for us to walk away from it.”
Now the question is, what are they going to make next? A superman game perhaps? While rocksteady remains silent on the subject there are hints floating around on the web that suggest that rocksteady might be working on a superman game after all.
Many critics have also been suggesting Rocksteady on how to make a Superman game good and enjoyable.
Things I Would Like To See In A Superman Game
In the past couple of weeks i have been wondering why Superman Games have failed (to a varying degree) and that if i were to make a superman game then how it would have been like, though i am not a game designer or know how the license works for DC Comics but still i thought to write about some ideas that might make a superman game not fail.
The game first of all should have a strong base for story and the main problem is instead of the story relying on the character itself it is based on already existing films and different comics unlike the arkham series with which rocksteady did very well. I would like to see the story of the game start from the beginning where he landed on earth, he didn’t know limit of his power or what he could do with them, things like that would make the game enjoyable and will create suspense for those who haven’t seen how superman came into being or how he ended up as “Superman”, though we all know superman is a reporter who holds a big secret, should be there in the game. I am not saying that they should copy films or anything but the story should have some alternating start and the end. Now about the end i can’t really say as Rocksteady for sure have very talented people that holds the key to make a perfect Superman game like the arkham series and will make a great end for this game.
After discussing the story i would like the game to have sidemissions (later) where he would save the people from the disasters and evil. The Superman should not have all the powers in the start as it would make the game not enjoyable as i said the story would start from the beginning where Superman wouldn’t know what are his powers and it’s limits. Another main thing Rocksteady would have to focus and work on is the gameplay mechanics as it would be very tricky and is not great in other superman games. Another thing that i would like to point out and is present in most of the games today (will not name them) is “Repetitiveness”, the game at any point shouldn’t be repetitive as it just ruins the game and makes it not enjoyable at all as i hate the games which are repetitive.
In the end i would again say i am not a game designer, director or anything else. These are just My opinions that might help the creators to make a successful game and we all know Rocksteady is already a talented and experienced company that won’t for sure disappoint us. Would you like to have a superman game by Rocksteady, do you think another studio might be a better option and do you have suggestions for the game ? Let us know in the comments.
