Who would have thought that Street Fighter and Tekken would eventually come together in the same game? If these two fighting game giants can meet on the field of battle, then pretty much anything can happen! With that in mind, these are the top ten video game crossovers that we want to see made. Consider this an open letter to game designers everywhere.
Which is the most manly sport? Pro wrestling has been entertaining us for years, but MMA has the advantage of being, you know, real. However, in the video game world, a submission hold is just as real as a spinning piledriver, and we would love to see the greats of the MMA and pro-wrestling world have a shot at each other for the glory of being crowned king of sports entertainment.
What's the best first-person shooter of all time? Chances are you named one of the titles in this crossover. So why make us choose? Combine the RPG elements of Call of Duty, the futuristic weaponry of Halo, and the indirect mine-laying/trap-setting gameplay of Goldeneye into one super shooter. Then watch shooter fans pull the trigger till their fingers bleed. Besides, the game would probably feature military super spies in space. What's not to love!?
Zombies, zombies everywhere, and no one wants to share. These three games popularized zombie killing in the video game market. House of the Dead had frantic light gun action, Left 4 Dead had intelligent team-based gameplay, and Resident Evil had a deep storyline, interesting puzzles, and RPG elements. Merge them all together and you get a team based action-rpg with hordes of undead everywhere. You can't tell us that this game wouldn't sell like hotcakes if it were released the week before Halloween. Pure marketing genius!
Warcraft and StarCraft are two powerhouses of the RTS genre, and they are both made by the same company. One has to wonder, why hasn't Blizzard capitalized on this yet? When StarCraft unit models showed up in Warcraft III, countless custom maps were made in order to utilize them. That's proof enough that we all want to be playing "Orcs in Space." Yeah, yeah, Warhammer did the Ork in space thing, but it's just not the same.
Capcom fighters have crossed over with Marvel, Tatsunoko, SNK, Tekken, and more, but they have never crossed over with characters from Arc System Works, the creators of Guilty Gear. Well, it's time to make it happen. Ryu vs. Sol Badguy. Morrigan vs. Rachel Alucard. Gene from God Hand vs. Kenshiro from Fist of the North Star. Wouldn't it be glorious? Heck, I'd just play the game to see what sort of instant kills the Capcom side of the cast would get. I'd love to see a zombie horde tear you to pieces if you get a good hit off with Chris Redfield.
