In vidya format musicals would just be some form of DDR.

I can see it now, the game is set in Chicago, and the game revolves around musical sequences as the main characters attempt to raise money for some charitable purpose through less than charitable means while battling the police, rival bands, and the illinois nazis. With good period music, and plenty of car chases.

When will there be a video game that plays like a musical but doesn't have rhythm based gameplay? And I mean singing for the whole game where dialogue is strictly sung rather than spoken.

Imagine a Mega Man style game where the enemies in the stage sing together in a chorus while they attack you and the robot master type of character duets with you as you fight him. Your character's lyrics and tone change based on his condition.
>>
Sakura Wars series is pretty musical.

Because you can't really interact with musicals. The very concept of musicals is that it's a change of pace, but in video game, there are only two paces. Interactive and non interactive. if they try to make a "musical" video game, it would simply be a glorified rhythm game (interative version) or a movie/VN (non interactive)

Best example I can think of for a proper musical game is the little mermaid world in KH2 and that was so godawful I don't blame more people for not trying this admittedly interesting idea.

>>
>>255683985
I completely agree with you. The "spontaneity" of musicals is largely scripted and doesn't lend itself well to video games aside from four line jabs like >>255678587

In between the lyrical parts there's nothing more than a loop on repeat until the next segment begins.
>>
>>255683985
Ok, so the game itself in the course of normal play gives you a bunch of emotes that aren't really used but that are shown off to you. The emote controls are always the same. In the end sequence the evil enemy characters break into a song and dance routine where in they perform the various emote actions which are now all revealed to be their training you to take part in this elaborate song and dance routine.

The final action in the game has them inviting you to join them. You can select yes and sing a verse of your own. Or you can say no in which case they simply walk off dejectedly.

Rhythm games aren't musicals. Musicials implies shit BESIDES just the songs is happening. In vidya form that would mean something like one level of, I don't know, RPG gameplay or some shit, then rhythm stage. And neither side is an optional sidequest.

Parappa is pretty based though M-I-X THE FLOWER INTO THE BOWL

I refuse to believe anybody who isn't a tryhard that just wants to sound cool honestly hates musicals.

Oh my fucking god I just thought of a new game. Think of it like DMC or Bayonetta, but instead of beating shit up what you're doing is competing with other characters in dance offs.

Think of it like West Side Story but you aren't trying to kill anyone. The more stylish your dances the better your score. Maybe toss in some rhythm mechanics if you want but would that ruin your attempted dance combo, or would it make it better since you'd have to dance to a certain beat?
>>
Because then you have to pay extra for decent singers

Just imagine one with musical cutscenes in the beginning, when you enter a new area, when you hit a climax in a lengthy chain of sidequests that gives some backstory on one of the side characters, hell even boss introductions because why not.

>>
>>255677370
I think I should actually answer the question of why there are no musical games, so that we can work around them and come up with a concept of a musical game that will actually work.

I think that there are two main ones:

1. lack of choreography. Musicals tend to be VERY closely choreographed, and if you want the player to have any freedom at all (which you do, don't you? this is a GAME after all, not an interactive movie or some shit), it will be hard to choreograph their unpredictable actions with the predetermined and preprogrammed ones that the rest of the cast does. I guess there are rhythm games, but that only kinda counts.

2. Video game voice acting is INFAMOUSLY bad. Getting VAs who can actually SING? Forget about it.

That's a little too perfect. I would have honestly loved it (after I got over the initial shock) if they totally did this shit at the end of the game. But then, it wouldn't get nearly as many GOTY awards because it had the audacity to have a little fun with itself.

The issue is I just don't like rock in general, electric guitars and angry guttural voices and screaming give me a headache. It's not like I hate it or anything, I just can't get into it. Though, I might be confusing it with Metal.

>Video game voice acting is INFAMOUSLY bad. Getting VAs who can actually SING? Forget about it.

This isn't the 90's. If somebody spends the money and takes the effort they can get a star studded cast. Or if they're great at discovering good choices, they can find nobodies who can do it perfectly.

That first issue is true though. Maybe rely on all the NPCs to work through that and let the player try and fill their own role? Try to find some way to work their coreography into their basic animations for walking/fighting/etc.
>>
>>255690187

Not him, but yes, you are confusing it with Metal. And Metal has subgenres, like most other genres.

You know, if the characters in Mario games weren't so fucking shallow, I'll bet you could do a great musical off of that. I guess the biggest problem is Mario himself; he's just a complete and total non-character. Also, dramatic singing in an Italian accent would be just silly. Might work in an OPERA, but not really in a musical. Also, Peach's current voice is nauseating, and would probably drive me insane if I had to listen to her singing.

But still, I'm just imagining the possibilities and really liking them

>Song of distraught turning to determination at the start of the quest

>Bowser's song of evil, given while sitting pretty in his seat of power, master of all he surveys, possibly also involving an appeal to Peach to ditch that plumber.

>The minions song, with every different monster in the Mushroom Kingdom rising up to crush Mario. Or possibly they are not so content with being stomped all the time...

>Love song at the end, preferably NOT in Peach's current voice.

Actually, maybe it would more closely follow one of the RPGs in terms of plot. Those tend to have more personality. Also I'd make ANY excuse to see and hear a Fawful solo.
