5. Dead Rising 3

Platform: Xbox One
Release Date: November 22nd, 2013

Let’s face it folks. When it comes to gaming, most gamers want the same thing in the end and that’s to kick ass, take names, and be a raging badass. Tie all of this in with the obsessive zombie love many geeks have and you’ve got a recipe for turning lead into gold. Screw the idea of turning Walking Dead into an MMO. I’ve got a better idea! No other game combines the disturbing shuffle of zombies, the glorified celebration of player ingenuity, and desire to survive the coming zombie apocalypse like the Dead Rising series does. Imagine thousands of players running around the country killing zombies by the dozens in the most creative and imaginative ways they can imagine. The streets may run red with the constant flow of zombie blood we’d see, but it would be glorious!

4. The Order: 1866

Platform: PlayStation 4
Release Date: To be announced

Over the past few years, there’s been a big uptake in public interest of alternate histories. Capitalizing on that theme, The Order thrusts players into an alternate history version of London, shortly after the end of the Industrial Revolution. Think of it like Steampunk on steroids. There are firearms, cobbled together long-distance communication devices, and an ancient evil that has been hunting mankind for decades, if not centuries. What little has been shown about the game so far is interesting as hell, but imagine it as an MMO instead. Playing with your friends like this would be a Steampunk fan's wildest dream.

3. Watch Dogs

Platform: Xbox One and PlayStation 4
Release Date: November 12th, 2013

Watch Dogs takes place in a Chicago of the not-so-far-away future where everyone and everything is connected to the city’s network. Cultivating the fear that people already have about government intrusion into their own lives, Watch Dogs takes that premise and ratchets it up to ten. The main character in the game is a hacker and former thug, but the setting would make for a great MMO if players had access to a wide variety of roles they could play. Want to be a hacker? Great – which side of the law are you going to be on? Battle against other players in “the Matrix” or go after corporate targets. Perhaps you’re part of the city’s law enforcement detail instead and are beating the streets looking for unpatriotic citizens to take down. There are a lot of ways one could go with this title. It would be a shame to see a setting like this go to waste.

2. The Witcher 3

Platform: Xbox One and PlayStation 4
Release Date: To be announced

The world of The Witcher series is fraught with monsters around every corner, and not all of them are of the supernatural variety. Evil abounds in the hearts of men and beasts alike in this world for mature adults. Witchers are humans that have been mutated through horrific means to become monster hunters and no one is better at getting their jobs done. This would make a perfect world for a dark and gritty MMO. Gamers around the globe mostly know The Witcher as a series of video games, with the upcoming title concluding the legend of Geralt of Rivia. In fact though, the games came about from a series of books written by a Polish author named Andrzej Sapkowski. With any luck, hopefully all of the books will one day be translated into English so we can enjoy them.

1. Mad Max

Platform: PlayStation 4
Release Date: May 31st, 2014

It’s hard for me to believe it’s been almost 35 years since Mad Max first hit the movie screen. In 1979, video games were nothing more than a pixelated hobby of geeks and dweebs. Even so, after all these years, I can’t think of any intellectual property that has such a rabid fanbase still unfulfilled when it comes to seeing their dream of playing in the Mad Max universe come to fruition. If you were to create a desert-ridden post-apocalyptic MMO world and litter it with roaming gangs of outcasts terrorizing anyone that managed to survive without a weapon, I’d say, “Good luck with that.” Putting all this and more into a Mad Max MMO though is a different story.
