The phenomenon Pokémon Go swept the world like a storm. It got everyone out of their seats to play outside and catch 'em all. The concept of going outdoors and playing a game on your mobile phone while utilizing its GPS was Niantic and Nintendo's genius idea. Now all we need is more games like that to satisfy all the other video game fans!
Here are the games that need a Pokémon Go-like app on our mobile phones.
5. 'Dungeons & Dragons'
What is D&D? It's the almighty role-playing game that has tens of millions of fans. Dungeons & Dragons Go would be perfect for the franchise. With a massive world, tons of races and classes, venturing out on quests with friends in the real world would take it to the next level.
If fans can unite and still play the storytelling D&D tabletop game and its MMORPG, they can definitely unite in the real world to collect items, defeat enemies and go on epic quests.
4. 'The Sims'
Wait, what?! Seriously, hear me out. There are people that are not cut out for fantasy. However, there are people who are easily suited to playing games based on reality. If gamers can be engrossed and play online reality games with their own avatars in front of a console or PC, it would be huge if people could be their own Sim that they are able to customize.
To be able to go out to socialize, collect, and build their own place as with The Sims would be a great game for people that would rather not do all that in real life.
3. 'Magic: The Gathering'
To be honest, any card game could take this spot (Yu-Gi-Oh!, Vanguard, Pokémon TCG, etc.). However, Magic: The Gathering would be the perfect one to be the pioneer. With thousands of cards introduced and a hardcore fanbase, a Go version is sure to last a long time on the market. Yes, there are mobile versions of the major card games, but creating a Go version and having players collect, go out, and do battle would be a breath of fresh air for card players.
2. 'Monster Rancher'
This is the wonderful monster-breeding game that introduced us to beautiful creatures like Mocchi and Suezo. Just like Pokémon, Monster Rancher has a ton of creatures that we also need to catch and breed. But the real concept that would really make a Monster Rancher Go game awesome is the combining factor.
The monsters in this game can be fused together; one would end up as the main breed and the second as the sub-breed. That would give the game a huge customization component and make its battle system more dynamic.
The Pokémon vs Digimon battle should continue! For years, these two franchises have clashed in the market and we need to have them clash in this Go-style gameplay. Let's be honest: The Digimon franchise has a huge fanbase and needs a Go game already. After the revival of these adorable monsters through the Digimon Tri anime, we saw how awesome it would be to have Digimon in our real-life, modern world.
If this battle between iconic monsters from both franchises could happen, then we really need a clash of Go games from these franchises, too.
Watch: Red and Charmander vs Tai and Agumon:
I'm so excited to watch the new Digimon Tri 3.: Confession movie and I'm excited to see what Go games will be released soon! And for the next release from the Digimon franchise, check out the trailer for Digimon Universe: Appli Monsters, which is set for October 1.
