With the booming popularity of genres like Hero Shooters, MOBA, Hunter and Online trading card games many games are crossing genres by releasing a spinoff game from the main series, some games do it exceptionally well like Heathrstone and Gwent, some games like Dark Nexus Arena fail or arrival and some others have the potential for greatness like Quake Champions, Many other games are already crossing genres like Metal Gear going Survival, Dynasty Warriors going open world beside the already released Zelda, MGS and Final Fantasy trying their luck with Open World genre, it is an interesting way to play some of the classic titles that we grew up with trying new genres and game styles.the following are three games that I would love to see cross genres.
- Shin Megami Tensei x Monster Hunter
SMT series are fairly popular worldwide with spin-offs like Persona being even more popular than the main series, the games have very dark and mature themes to them and they contain many demons with various inspiring designs and I think it will be a perfect setting for a Hunter game, the game could also add the social aspect of Persona and make you form bonds with quests givers and forming these relationships being the foundation for gaining more recourses from them or even in mission supply drops.
- Destiny x Overwatch
Bungie created a big list of great characters for their shooter each with a different set of abilities and weapons and armors, I wonder how good they would have been if they were in a game like Overwatch, you get to choose a character with a preset of powers and weapons and you will help your team to complete an objective, with Bungie’s amazing FPS gameplay design I can only see myself sinking in a 1000 hours into this game.
- The Last of Us x DayZ
Survival games are a genre in making, for years we have heard of Dayz and H1Z1 and none of them ever coming out all of them seems to be in a long development hell and stuck on Steam Early Access, I would like to see a game in this genre made by a studio that doesn’t fuck around like Naughty Dog and I believe their Last of Us IP is perfect for this, it could be the best Open World Survival games we have ever seen, scavenging for food and water and weapons while surviving hordes of clickers and other players who might want to do you harm.
