Post3 Wishes? (videogame related)

So, if you could have any three videogame related wishes, what would they be? It could be anything, from developer collaboration to your dream game, but do try and be at least remotely grounded in reality. Mine would be (in reverse order) -

3. A new Resident Evil game with pre-rendered backdrops. Not having to generate massive 3D environments plus modern wizardry would make for awesome graphics without load times... and I miss that highly-stylized gameplay.

2. Cross-play would become standard for multi-platform releases.

1. Valve would announce the surprise release of Left 4 Dead 3, which they've been optimizing for years on an also unannounced new engine (with cross-play, of course).

Over to you... and no wishing for three more wishes!

Edit - Valve, not Rare

1) SteamVR. Comes bundled with Half Life 3 to sell the platform like HL2 did for Steam.

2) Microsoft uncancels Freelancer 2

3) Rhythm games become popular again and justify Harmonix spending more money on Rock Band so I can spend more money on Rock Band :shifty:

1. Dino Crisis reboot, kids who grew up with Jurassic Park are now in their 30s and the recent Jurassic World media doesn't scratch that itch. Give me Resident Evil/Uncharted mechanics with dinosaurs and gore.

2. Metal Gear Solid remake with visuals similar to the recent Unreal Engine 4 fan trailer

3. PlayStation 5 with full backwards compatibility with 25 years worth of gaming history .

I've been wanting this for years, I always thought something like classic Resident was only possible with fixed cameras and tank controls... Resi 2 remake may be about to make me think otherwise.

1. A new Burnout game (even a remaster of Revenge would be nice)
2. new Tony Hawks which is actually good
3. An open world sandbox game that is set in modern day Britain (getting a bit fed up of the likes of GTA and Watch Dogs being USA set all the time).

True, I'd still like some of games with the bigger budgets getting better local though.

1) A new Classic Castlevania

2) A New SotN/AoS style Castlevania

3) A new 2D Metroid that surpasses previous Metroids

Regarding 1 and 2. With the Bloodstained games I may change these.

1/ A Netflix styled service where you can play games from previous generations. It would also have to include local and online multi-player.

2/ BLOPS 4 flops thus encouraging Activision to put single player campaigns back in Call of Duty.

3/ A new Star Wars RPG that focuses completely on the single player experience. No multi-player at all.

It should be a multi format release too, especially since it was developed by Sega anyways.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

The problem with such a proposal is that it will prompt replies that are mainly based on reiterating things of the past. So two of my wishes are for completely new games experiences, that I can't be specific about because they are beyond anything I can imagine. My third wish is that Resident Evil 4 never existed.
