What would you want to see in an TMNT game

Whelp with Mutants and Manhattan being a disappointment and the closest thing we have to a good TMNT game is the turtles being guest characters in Injustice 2, I want to know what the forums want in their dream TMNT game. What do you want the combat to be like, level design, stealth aspects, aesthetics. What genre do you want it action stealth, fighting, Turn based RPG, Spectacle fighter/Brawler, side scrolling beat em up, etc.

At the risk of being a Powder (but he's right)... I know this has been discussed a million times over in great depth in epic threads. Over and over again.

Mostly it goes, the "It should be a sandbox, next-gen Arkham City-style thing!" people say their piece, and the others go, "NO! That's stupid! It should be a 2D side-scroller button-masher like in the 90s because everyone in 2018 still wants to play that stuff!" and then others point out why the former is unrealistic because of budget and how the franchise is unproven in such and others point out why the latter is stupid and backwards and it all sort of dies because no one can agree on anything.

Why not do a new TMNT Tournament Fighters, I woud love to see a TMNT Fighting game, a game in which the fighting game community competes in these tournaments.

So you want it to look bad(or at least in Street Fighter's 5 case a few unintentionally weird looking characters)

If so, without Hadoken and similair moves. Let them throw shuriken instead.

DotO was Wayforward which is a game company people have been glamouring for making a Turtles game, and it was bland and kinda boring in the long run.

MiM was also lackluster despite being a IDW based game by PlatinumGames.

These three games could have been so much better, either Activision is restricting the developers or they are just having their C team of interns to make them.
I had the theory that Activision might've been pressuring the developers to rush all those games out for some reason. Like maybe they were using the turtles as a franchise they knew would sell enough for them to pull a profit they could throw into the next call of duty or something. Maybe im wrong but thats the explanation that makes the most sense to me because on paper it seemed like they had solid developers with solid ideas.

A game about me when the turtles didnt exist! A game that will be based in the 2003 series and take place when when i and Hamatoyoshi was in Japan and i will be fighting the utroms and their human guardians. And another game based on the 2012 series that takes place after i killed Tang Shen. Game must also take place in Japan where i with my foot ninjas will be fighting mafia and other criminal organizations. The games must be called Adventures of the Shredder or Rise Of The Shredder.

Both Mutant Melee and Smash Up are TMNT games that I'd want to see done right, both of those games have flaws so I want one where they're not just shovelware.

One of the problems of making a TMNT game is that with so many different adaptations it is almost impossible to please everyone. Part of the reason for not committing to a TMNT game is that developers are worried they'll only get part interest.

Another reason to go the Arkham route, pick and choose the best things from every incarnation and create something new.

Either that or just make a proper idw based game since it more or less references everything.honestly though I don't think the issue is that they think the fan base is too divided but they still seem unsure if adult gamers are even interested in a tmnt game. Which is something I find weird because when the last few games were announced all I saw was hype on most game sites. People seemed genuinely excited until they actually got to play the games and found them poor. By now it should be obvious grown ups would be happy to buy your game if you put in more than the minimum effort

Again to do something like those Batman games would be costly. No developer wishes currently to spend that kind of money.

It's still IDW so it's still only going to appeal to fans of one iteration of TMNT.

sadly I agree with you there. except it's not the devs I think are the problem most of the time but publishers. you'd think they'd realize by now they're only gonna get back what they put in. If they actually put triple a resources behind a tmnt game for once I'm pretty sure they'd probably see a return on thier investment. or you know they could just keep throwing half cooked junk out there until all but the most hard core of us stop paying attention.

And as the the second point don't act like IDW's tmnt universe doesn't pull from every one that came before it. You want to appeal to a broader base of turtle fans while getting casual and new fans interested in a more mature (and currently running) take on the turtles that's probably the smartest way to go.
