Every week I ask my friends a question about video games. I take their responses and post them here for you to read and respond to. This week, with E3 2015 just days away, I wanted to know what would make everyone cry if announced at E3.
DREAM THEATER EDITION OF SINGSTAR
A video starts with a low angle shot of grass blowing in the wing. Suddenly, someone would run by. The next shot is of the front of a building. The boy who was running stops in front of the door to catch his breath. He opens the door and walks down a long hallway with pictures of landscapes on both sides. There’s photos of a beach, a mountain, a cruise ship, and a cycling road. At the end of the hallway are three doors. One on either side and one in front of him. He opens the one in front of him and sees a man standing at a computer with his back towards the boy.
He walks towards the man and says, “I made it. I’m sorry I’m late.”
The camera is now hovering over the desk. Books are stacked up and files are spread all over. The faces of the two people are never shown. They are only seen from the back.
The man says, “Wonderful! We’ve been waiting a long time for this.”
A briefcase is shown. On the top of the briefcase is an old worn symbol…
The symbol is of course a Pokeball. This would be Nintendo announcing a brand new first person Pokemon game with some MMO capabilities.
Either Shenmue 3, Half-Life 3, or Mother 3 coming to the US. There’s always a rumor that pops up about Shenmue 3 right before E3.
“We’re all done with this shit.
All you guys do is complain anyways.
Make your own games.
Have nice lives!”

I’d love for Konami to pretend Castlevania still exists and announce a partnership with From Software to revive it. I treated Bloodborne like it was Castlevania, so if Miyazaki actually was handed the property to carry on its legacy, I would never stop smiling.
Because Konami has spent the last few months teaching us to hate it, my runner-up would be a reimagining of Pokemon from Shigesato Itoi. If we could finally have a Pokemon game that broke the formula a little bit and introduced a well-written story, I’d probably buy another game.
Well… Banjo Threeie…
But more realistically, a plan to do a Call of Duty remaster of Modern Warfare or Modern Warfare 2.
That’s it from us, but we want to hear from you. Do you think anyone will learn to count to 3 this year? Will Tyler realize that Don Mattrick left Microsoft years ago? What announcement would make you cry harder than you’ve ever cried before? Let us know in the comments below!
