Some say the fantasy genre as a setting (that is the medieval fantasy setting) is worn out. Futuristic settings to a lesser extant as well.
Which settings do you feel should be more represented in games and which are your favorite settings?
Bonus points for obscurity.
Ocean exploration, honestly.
I feel like it doesn't get enough love and the games usually coming out for it are shit. Subnautica's alright, but it gets boring after a while and they really need to add some major content instead of the dribble they've been doing for the past few months.
I just want to explore the ocean and find weird shit while freaking myself the fuck out.
Also, dinosaurs are pretty cool, but with ARK going now, I think multiple games will start overusing the concept to death.
Space settings that are really freaky and hostile in the Metroid sort of way with good atmospheric music.
Gorgeous tropical islands with bright colors are also cool. One of the main reasons I played Tomb Raider.
I always liked the setting in Alien and Aliens. It's the future but the technology is still pretty primitive.
Oh god I love these, especially at night.
sure, high adventure in colonial Africa
Game set in the time and area of the Aztecs, but with all the mythological things being real.
How about a 'crystal caves environment', I think it's got a lot of potential.
>Fantasy setting where you have to go lower to find the source of evil plaguing the land.
>Sci-fi setting where you have to recover haywire mining robots or maybe hang out in a mining colony.
>Horror setting where the crystals collapse, have to platform and think strategically to escape or risk falling to your death. Maybe you need to tie yourself to safe environments and force to crystals to collapse underneath you to save yourself from monsters. -But you have to frantically untie yourself when monsters start approaching you.
>Indie-style game where the crystals undulate colours like a rainbow as you explore vast underground cave ecologies with different creatures and running rivers
Kind of captures the imagination I feel.
>immediately start being a dick and causing all sorts of destruction and chaos
>native people are scared and start building alters and making sacrifices
>give them food and shit and destroy their enemies
>build up a huge following
>come back years later
>everyone's speaking Spanish
