Again another pointless thread to kill time and have a smile. So everyone in here thats aged 25+ will have it easier here! ;) What franchises (TV, toys, bands, ...) of the 80ies would you like to see return in a game on the 3Ds and what would it be about?

  • MacGyver: has to be! Would make perfect sense as adventure game with tricky puzzles thrown into the Mix, heck if MacGyver wasn't so cheesy by today's standards I could even see it being massively successful!
  • Knight Rider: also a given. Unfortunately everything they ever did with the franchise after "the Hoff"'s time was lackluster at best. I could see it as something like GTA-like only that your trusty problemsolver is your nearly indestructable car instead of your handgun and baseball bat.
  • Alf - need I say more? This could be revived as a parody on itself and how cheesy the 80ies were all on its own, a few lines of that little muppet still make me chuckle today.

Your turn!

No regrets.

Fame - obvious insperation for a dance game (probably better for the WiiU)
Airwolf - cool helicopter cop show. could be cool to use the 3DS accelerometers for shooting bad guys from an above head perspective.
Dukes of hazard - nuff said
A-Team - could be cool as a guns for hire game; while earning cash to buy, build and upgrade vehicles and weapons.

I seriously see the good ideas in all of your suggestions. Hmm I wonder if any indies will ever pick up on something like this. But even if, I guess it would be more of a parody since an indie dev most likely won't be able to afford licensing...

No regrets.

yup, all 10 of us. :p jk
I 2nd Alf btw. Another fantastic sitcom from the 80's, followed by Growing Pains, Punky Brewster, Who's the Boss, the early years of Full House, Small Wonder and Saved by the Bell ect ect. What i loved about a lot of these 80's sitcoms is that the performances by the children especially seemed miles more genuine, grounded and real (this also goes for kids game shows or interviews on Johnny Carson/Jone Rivers ect not to mention the Bill Cosby show) rather than the overexagerated fake over the top tweeny bops in many of these cringe worthy moraless & 'plastic' superificial glitzy lazy unfunny sitcoms you see of today. I'm no fan, but iCarly is probably the only decent kids sitcom there is on tv nowadays by the looks of things... But back on topic, I wouldn't mind seeing an actual videogame based on Captain N: The Game Master. Too lazy to go into detail at the moment, but the the possobilities would be practically endless.

Somebody also created an unfinished Full House fighter, I'm sure you've seen it! :p

There is more of us then you think!! :P

As for the question. It's not as old but how about Saved By the Bell. It at least started in the 80s. Who wouldn't want to play as Zack or Slater to see who gets Kelly!?!

Also mentioned but the A Team would be awesome!!

Aww Waveboy Small Wonder was the worst acting I've ever seen! No way I want to see that one. Yes Alf was awesome though.

11 maybe? :p hehe. I've noticed that the majority of the old time VC-Reviews/Nintendo Life users that are still here just post on the site's main articles. I'm sure there are many, just not in the forum. Most of the users in the forum i'm guessing are 18 - early 20's.

Also, I wouldn't mind seeing a new A Nightmare on Elm Street sequal rear it's head someday of course based on the original franchise(1 & 3 would be nice) rather than that abomination that was the remake. eek! As for Saved by the Bell. I wouldn't mind playing as Zach, with screetch being your lacky sidekick who invents new gadgets to help Zach progress through certain stages, while Slater stars as your rival. Ultimately, your main goal is too save Princess pea--I mean...Kelly Kapowski who's stuck in a horrible dream Where Mr. Belding has her inprisoned in an Endless class of detention!....Can you save the girl of your dreams in time before AC Slater? Find out in Saved by the Bell: Detention Nightmare!....All in stereoscopic 3D! ;p
Now you're playing with power!

As for Small Wonder, I agree, but it's got so much charm. :p

That description of Save By the Bell is awesome. I would so play that game!! You need to throw Jessie and Lisa in there some where though.

lol Hmmm, well since Jessie is the brains, maybe she could provide you with clues as you progress, while Lisa could just be a 'money icon sprite' that you'll need to obtain to put towards Screetch's Inventions again in order for Zach to reach new areas. :p Once you finish the game you'll unlock 'Screetch's Quest' where you and Screetch's Robot 'Kevin' will have to save Lisa from the Evil Nerdlings, aka The Chest Club. lol

Bananaman looks pretty darn unique and i love the gummy animations, The fact that TrapDoor is 80's stop motion makes it an automatic win, the Announcer/music for Duckula is extremely impressive and MASK is of course another gem of the 80's. Haven't seen Danger Mouse though! Anyways looks like we've got 5 users in here including myself that are over the age of 25 or in their 30's, let's see how much more we diggy' up.lol

When they turn golden girls into a video game already? Its weird I got alot of strange looks when I was still in school back then & said I watched the golden girls I don't know why I guess the show is for older people but I still liked the comedy in it lol. :D

@MadAussieBloke

Thanx! :D

I'd love to play alf but never got a chance back then hope they re-release either the sega or nintendo version lol. Only seen stuff of them on youtube never actually played them but loved the show.

I have an old BeetleJuice GameBoy game lol that is going retro. Loved the cartoon on cartoonnetwork & the movie. ;) :D

Happy Gaming! (^_^)
