    Thumbs up G.I. Joe the Game Xbox360/PS3 (what could be) a proposal

    If there is anyone out there that has a connection to a game production company, this should be done, a new-age G.I. Joe game. A game with every G.I. joe/Cobra ever made, create your own Joe, Sandbox style (over the whole planet), a bajillion missions, and of course no broken bands, thumbs or crotches.
    A game where you could choose to save the world as any Joe or complete world domination with the use of any cobra behind the overseeing of Cobra Commander and Destro. But with the ability to free roam all over the planet completing missions til an almost impossible finale. Maybe saving or taking over one country at a time, running into international personalities.
    Online play would be an awesome shooter with your choice of any G.I. Joe personality or your own custom made joe or cobra.
    I'm just putting it out there for people who may have the power to get this process done, and do it good, a lot of game companies know how to take something really good and screw it up. So before the game companies do make a game like this (which I think they will someday), don't mess it up with horrible gameplay, no story line, no choices, and wthout some kind of creation process to the game.
    If ya think it's a stupid idea it's all good, but if ya think it would be cool then petition here for a great G.I. joe game.

    I'd be surprised if there wasn't some sort of movie tie-in video game next year. But then again, games based on movies always suck. Except for "Goldeneye".

    CT Special Forces: Fire for Effect

    I know there's a lot of war games out there but if you look for something less realistic and more action oriented I recommend the game above.

    You play as 2 characters:

    - Raptor, a mix between Duke and Roadblock. A Navy SEAL specialized in general warfare and commando tactics.

    - Stealth Owl, a Snake-Eyes of some sort. He is not exactly a Ninja, but he uses a lot of stealth in his missions. He uses an all black uniform with a high tech mask. He is also the freefall specialist.

    I think a hardcore gamer will find the game a little easy, because you have a lot of hi-tech stuff to help you out, a force field for instance. But the game is fun.

    The name I'm mentioned is the tittle for the game in the PS2. In other platforms it went out as Special Forces: Nemesis Strike.

    Anyone care to recommend any other game in the lines this one I've suggested? Thanks.

    There are so many possibilities for Joe games. RTS, 4x strategy, 1st or 3rd person shooter, MMO, etc. GI Joe would really fit into any of the mainstream genres.

    The genre I most would want to see would be MMO. You pick your faction and design your character. All the existing characters would be NPCs. If you have read anything about the features in Warhammer Online, I think that type of system would work well.
    I
    would also LOVE a 4x strategy. Think medieval total war, but in the modern era. Characters would be trainable, but the bulk of armies would be made up of generic troops. Characters would be difficult to kill, but if they do die they would be gone for the remainder of the game.

    After playing games like Gal Civ 2 and the total war series, I can't play a RTS. They just seem too simplistic. But GI Joe would work non the less, similar to Halo Wars, and Star Wars Empire at War (as far as characters are concerned).

    There have been too many first person shooters lately so I would not like one, but it would work if done like the old Rainbow Six games. You pick which members you want on each mission based on their qualifications.

    A 3rd person one would be good. Have an open world to travel and explore, but its in the middle of a war. Kind of like Mercenaries, but on a larger scale.

    I played an awesome Video Game in an arcade back in the early to mi 90's which was an actual G.I. Joe game. It was in So. Cal on the Santa Monica Pier. It had room for four players and had a Huge screen. I have no clue if it is still there because, I now live about 2,000 miles away from CA. Did anyone else ever play it or hear of it? If You live in So.Cal it would be worth it to check out...just a thought- peace

    I've tried thinking of a good GI Joe game idea, and these ideas really light my fire! There really is all kinds of options for G.I. Joe games. What a thrill if some independent, quality-focused company (think Bungie back with Halo 1) took ownership of the idea to make this G.I. Joe property into a plethora of game types, and just started in producing a consistent # of varied titles with different gameplay types. It could work, and it would be AWESOME. People would say, "Man why didn't we think of this before?"

    Preacher, I know what you're talking about. That game was awesome. If you do some internet searching for a Dos-based MAME emulator (they play arcade game ROMS), and then do a search for GI Joe Arcade ROM, you can put this game on your computer. Easiest way I know is to look for it in torrents and use BitTorrent to download it. It's still so much fun, especially with ROMS that let you save anytime

    Talking Electronic Arts - I love their stuff!

    I should also add that Electronic Arts IS in fact creating a G.I. Joe game. This has received widespread news in Variety in Feb. of this year:

    http://www.variety.com/article/VR111...&cs=1&nid=2607

    http://www.comicbookmovie.com/news/articles/4277.asp


    And this isn't the first news of this to me. At LAST YEAR's G.I. Joe convention, I met with someone from EA who was attending and very interested in everything going on. So... next year will be big all around. You may have your wish for a game again!
