I bet some one has done this before, but I'm new to the board.

I like to see something liek the old Fire pro wrestling games where they had tons of moves, because I think the moves in wrestling are the backbone.

I like to see a story line where it fun to watch and play. Also have it where your friends could play and do a tag team thing. Me and my friend usely have to sit there while the other one is playing and wait.

I want to be able to change any superstar that in the game (moves or looks). It's be prefect, because in wrestling things change so fast.

Make unlockable game play. Have it where you have to play a spuerstar to unlock create a mode and then go from there. Unlockable wrestler and stuff. NO more crap like to unlock, like areas, foam hands, and ref and/or people I don't care about. (sorry I give a rat ass if Jim Ross is a unlockable char.)

Moves- Have it where you build up your move. Say you want the DVD as your finsiher so you pick it and each time you use it (no matter what mode story/etc.) you got maybe a % and it build up to the point where you use it there knock out or tap out if a submission.
The other thing is make more wild moves like what Sabu use or guys like him, doing springboards and stuff. Also better top rope moves like they use to do in ECW or the indies or japan.
Maybe have something that you could mood moves in some way or create a move.

Show the belts you won. Have the old create a belt like in VJPW2.

No cars or bikes that was plain stupid in SYM
Flaming Tables
Better music and enterance to pick from
And to be able to have the choice to hit someone in story mode when they make fun of you.

Well that all I can think of for now. (late in the nite brain asleep)Please let me know what you think would make a great game.

What *I* want to see in a wrestling game is for it to be more like an action-simulator, where it's all a work and the goal is to put on compelling matches, try to give yourself an image, get to know people, rise though the promotions, don't get hurt too often or badly, not get involved too deeply in the evils of wrestling (a-la Jake), and so on...

Just a really in-depth role-playing like wrestling game where you still DO wrestle... just... you don't try and WIN, you try on putting on a good match.

But, that would be insanely hard to pull off. I've tried thinking about ways it could be done before... but it's really, really hard to come up with anything. Like... calling spots, and listening to instructions in a match would be a must... but how would you incorperate that?

Other then that, I think that the THQ line of wrestling games is just fine. There's very little I would change.

And flaming tables? I'd be really annoyed to see that in a wrestling game.

I'm already annoyed and saddened as it is, from a wrestlers standpoint, to see a backyard game out there that revolves around all the stupidity about it... I'd be okay with it if it wasn't all about diving off the roof and whatnot...

Gameplay wise, King of Colosseum is the closest to my personal ideal. It's basically a mixture of the Fire Pro, No Mercy, King's Soul and Legends of Wrestling engines.

It makes use of ISP, where after a grapple, you choose an Intermediate Start Position for a move (square-suplex, circle-head between legs, and so on), then you hit another button for your move. This seems bulky, but in practice, it's pretty easy to get the hang of, and gives you access to more grappling moves.

The Vale Tudo system is very realistic and it's theoretically possible to score a 2 second KO or get a flash submission. I say theoretically because neither your computer opponent or your homie playing next to you will be that accomodating!

It's totally possible to have any kind of match you want. From a lucharesu Junior match, to a King's Road/Strong Style match, it's up to you and the engine lets you do it well.

My gripe with KoC?? It'll probably NEVER get released stateside, and since it's all in Japanese, I had to learn some Kanji just to be able to play! I won't front and say it wasn't worth it though...

I think I understand what you're saying and it sounds pretty cool. Like rather than just winning matches you try and put on entertaining matches, angles feuds and try to get popular with the fans, or backstage. You can refuse to job, or no sell certain people. The only problem with something like that is the casual fan who buys these video games might not understand the backstage politics and they just want to fight people using their favorite wrestler.


A couple of things I would like to see.
- a career mode with storylines, like SYM, that continues much longer.
- some kind of random created wrestler by the computer so as your career goes on and the older wrestlers retire, and new wrestlers come up
- have your health decrease as your career goes along so eventually you have to retire, maybe your wrestler can even become a manager to a new created wrestler, or become commissioner.

So must have the things i'd like to see improved are the in the story mode. I'm pretty happy with the moves, characters, create a wrestler, etc. And i'm pretty happy with the match selection although i'd be interested in seeing some types of matches from Japan, just because I haven't seen much Japanese wrestling and are interested in what kind of matches they have.

I want to be booed Goddamnit!

I've tried everything in my power to upset the fans in SYM and the dumb-asses still freaking cheer me. Its just not on.

Oh and someone mentioned in another thread the ability to put Big Show and Albert in a Bra and Panties match. That or a 'paddle on a pole in a pool of gravy' would be money.
