Your ideas would make for the ultimate Gundam game! If people had the money,
it would be great. This sounds like it would work best in an arcade. I.E. Set
it up like those huge Mech Warrior cabinets at select entertainment centers.
Here's what I would like in a Gundam game:
I would be happy for just a good Gundam with a good selection of Mobile
Suits. I would like an alternate story for a Gundam game, so you could choose
any Mobile Suit from any Gundam animation. I.E. a super Gundam cross over!
RX-78 Gundam vs. Turn A Gundam would be fun! :)
Of course you could have your choice of a 3rd person view or a cockpit first
person view. Some controllable Mobile Armors would be nice. An action game
version of those SRW style Gundam cross over games is basically what I would
