Recycled Inspirations

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?
