SimCity 4 + Syndicate Wars.
Dungeon Keeper 2 + Dwarf Fortress.
You know you wanna.
However, Rival developers will use any underhand tactics they can to try and make your zones less desirable to live in, up to and including bombs, hit squads and chemical & biological attacks. All the time, you're playing two games: Building up the bustling, bright utopia which attracts more tenants, and managing the dirty business of security and counter-insurgency, heading off terror attacks and keeping your rivals at bay. Will you take the moral highground and only defend your city? Or will you attack your rivals tenants the same way they attack you?
Machinarium + Crusader: No Remorse
I loved Alan Wake as much as I loved Max Payne, so I'd hardly call it bad, seeing as Max Payne's one of my favorite games.
Tropico 4 + Master of Orion
You play the Emperor-dictator of a small planet in a distant solar system. The rest of the galaxy is breathing down your neck for various reasons and it is your job to make sure you can keep living your happy little planet-ruling life while also living amongst a greater galactic union who do not necessarily see eye to eye on your undemocratic rule. Or you could just go to war with them if you want to. The game combines both macro and micro-level management - the scale goes from intergalactic diplomacy and possible off world colonisation to deciding infrastructural details of your own home planet, building your greatest cities by hand, making sure your citizens are satisfied/unwilling to rebel and that any visitors to the planet leave happy.
Duke Nukem 3D + Planescape: Torment
Give me steam and how you feel to make it real.
It'll be interesting to see whether he:
1. Describes a mashup idea
2. Argues with something I just said
Hopefully both =)
Portal + Rainbow Six
Master of Orion + Freespace.
Edit: Oops, too late.
Well, as I remember the planescape hero is undead and has amnesia, so I took those elements from there. I have to admit that's about all I know about the storyline. I didn't play it long; I think I'm the only person on the planet who dislikes that game.
STALKER + Mount & Blade: Warband
