At some point in time, we’ve all wondered what it’d be like if our favourite character entered the world of another game. Who’d have thought that Street Fighter and Tekken could come together, and it’d be so good?! With that in mind, there are a lot more epic mash-ups that would blow us away. Here are a few hypothetical crossovers that would be freakishly good:
Dead Rising and The Sims:
Snarling, shuffling hordes of zombies. The brain and flesh eating ones. All of them in the beloved city that you built. Yes, we’re talking about SimCity. Instead of making friends, going to work, doing daily chores and all that jazz; you have to battle zombies by the thousands and make sure your Sims stay alive. You can always squeeze in a little time to pursue a romantic relationship, and find a boyfriend or a girlfriend. Just make sure they’re not zombies!
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Grand Theft Auto 5:
Undeniably, two of the greatest games ever made. This is a match made in heaven, for one reason and one reason only – dragons, in Los Santos. You could nuke a dragon if you wanted. Or steal one, ride it and burn a town to the ground. Personally, we’d try to grab random pedestrians off the street, with our winged friends. You could also pop a bullet in an unsuspecting Redguard, or kill an army of Dragonborn. Now that is something worth shouting about.
Just Dance and Mortal Kombat:
This is the dance version of Mortal Kombat, where instead of fighting to the death, characters would have a dance-off until one of them dropped dead. Basically, Nach Baliye without the voting. Think of Scorpion and Subzero, Raiden and Baraka, and the rest of the MK universe sweating it out on the dance floor, in yoga pants. If that image isn’t funny enough, think of Scorpion yelling “Get over here!” and pulling his opponent towards him for a romantic dip. Every step counts. 3…2…1… Dance!
Watch Dogs and Batman: Arkham City:
Now if this was possible, we’d see the best hacker in town and the world’s greatest detective go head-to-head. Aiden Pearce would be the vigilante hacker, committing crimes across the city, and our very own Bats would try to catch him. The crossover would be pretty crazy, with these two geniuses ceaselessly trying to outclass each other. It would involve brilliant action, some mind-bending riddles, a lot of computers and a marvellous co-op mode. Think about it, you could play as the Caped Crusader, or the silent, unethical bad***, i.e. Aiden Pearce.
Sleeping Dogs and inFamous:
Sleeping Dogs’ open world, combined with inFamous’s electric Cole McGrath is another brilliant crossover idea. McGrath could either wreak havoc in the city, electrocuting innocent bystanders and helping the gangs, or he could save a couple of hostages along with Wei Shen. This game could have some amazing storylines, fantastic gameplay, a great open world experience and the power of lightning!
So there you have it. 5 crossovers we’d like to see. Are you listening, Ubisoft and Rockstar?
Tell us what you’d think would be an amazing video-game mash-up.
