Recycled Inspirations

By Jim Rossignol on April 25th, 2008.


Gamasutra has posted an excellent piece called The Top 20 Underutilized Licenses, which include both existing game franchises and intellectual properties that are particularly well-suited to gaming.

Our criteria for putting together this article – with input from all Gamasutra staffers – was a mixture of gut feeling and impassioned argument; unscientific, to be sure, but rather than functioning as a guide to the 20 and only 20 licenses that could or should be explored, it’s much more of a thought experiment into avenues many might not have considered.

I particularly enjoyed the suggestion that there should be games based on Groundhog Day, which is, of course, mechanically analogous to how save games work in a videogame anyway… and there aren’t enough instances of Mr Murray in gaming.

What is your top underutilized license, readers?
