    I've been wanting a modern beat 'em up. Stylized and with almost non-stop action. Sadly, they seem to have died with the arcades. The weird thing is that I was never even into the old ones. So I gave Streets of Rage 2 another try. I enjoyed myself. Couldn't be bothered to learn all the moves, though. I only made it to the underground arena, level 4. I still want a 3D beat 'em up. In my desire for one, I wrote a simple concept.

    That would be quite a decline from turn based blobbers with anime.

    Mother Russia Bleeds is a good modern beat'em up, although 2D, a nice homage to Streets of Rage and such. As for 3D, Zeno Clash is pure love. But a retrowaving 3D take on it would be great, for sure.

    And we need blobbers back; luckily Grimoire is being released next week with or without enhancements!
    Also, it's been a long time without C&C-like RTS, with EBM-industrial OST, basebuilding and army mass production.

    Impression Games' city builders, with full blown 2D graphics and walker (and/or provinces from the older ones) mechanics. There's still a ton of interesting themes these games could use. Nowadays attempts to reincarnate them are just shit. Lethis looks awful and is extremely boring, Hearthlands are just insulting with their lazy flash graphics.
    The supremacy of prestigious 2D 99/00 over lazy and incompetent flash cartoon is obvious. Take a gander at this beauty:

    And compare it to this pile of newgrounds/browser shit

    Also, classical Settlers could use a comback as well. Dawn of Cultures was brought down with abysmal Settlers 2 Anniversary 3D engine, Valhalla Hills are boring and pointless af, Northgard is still in the making.

    All of them? Nearly all genres are creatively and integrally dead these days, others are literally dead.

    But OK, out of the literal pile: vehicular combat games? And if one casual cuckdexer mentions Mad Max I swear...

    I'd like it if we had turn-based jrpgs again. It seems like all we get for jrpgs these days are these wishy-washy "kingdom hearts-esque" action rpg style.
    I like that style of gameplay in Kingdom Hearts and I like it in Dark Souls too (I'm just generalizing, those two are quite different, of course) but I don't care for it being in most other games.
    The most recent turn based RPG that I played and really loved was Lost Odyssey on the xbox 360 and I would adore it if that could be ported to the PC instead of being left to rot on a dead console. Thankfully, there are plenty of old turn-based jrpgs that can still be played, it would just be a little sad if we never got a new one that wasn't some anime trash.

    Space sims that focus on combat and missions (like Tie fighter, Freespace etc.) instead of sandbox trading, exploration, mining and other boring stuff.

    Tactical shooters. There's Arma, of course, but the last one that had a proper single-player campaign was SWAT 4 over a decade ago.
