This is why we get so many sequels: they're a safer bet than an entirely original IP. And yet there are so many old games which remain unexploited - games which never got a sequel, or franchises which were left to die and/or stagnate.
Here are just ten which could be brought back to do good things.
Furthermore, in the original games, Crash was just wearing a pair of tattered jeans and some trainers. A new version could do away with those altogether, and have Crash running around in the nude.
Let's see a new Ant Attack, still set in a dusty, crumbling, abandoned city overrun with giant, mutant, ants. The original was possibly the first game where you got to choose the gender of your character. A new version could also allow you to choose how nude the characters are.
You could even see their nude bodies getting dirtier and dustier, the further you get into the adventure. All that dust would really get everywhere. Right up there.
Bully was alright - and a fair attempt to make a Skool Daze-type game work commercially - but it was so immersed in the world of a private American boarding school, that it was hard for most players to buy into. A new Skool Daze would be set in a proper British school, with working class characters. A struggle against authority for the ages.
Best of all, with modern graphics, you could make all the teachers completely nude, in a properly realistic way. You could show literally everything. No need to hold back at all.
Let's make Donkey the bad guy again, and see a new Donkey Kong game with Mario as the protagonist. Let's set it on a succession of construction sites, as a sort of vertical platformer. At one point, Mario could pause to look down at the city below him with a pair of binoculars.
Surprise: everyone in the city is completely nude!
They could be sunbathing in the nude, or sat spread-eagled in restaurants, or straddling statues, rocking back and forth while grunting. Using modern graphics, we could have a city full of thousands upon thousands of nudes doing these things.
Nevertheless, it remains yet another of Nintendo's many under-exploited franchises, making flying accessible and fun, for those of us who couldn't ever be arsed with a proper flight sim.
Its skydiving has been much emulated/ripped-off over the years, but there's so much Nintendo could still do with the format; nude pilots, nude bystanders, billboards covered with pictures of nudes...
It's an idea that is ripe for being re-exploited with modern technology; you could make it really feel like you were exploring the pages of comic book. Better still: an entire comic shop; it could be like a Toy Story or Wreck It Ralph.
Your character could make his way from his own comic, through super-hero titles, cutesy, cuddly, bunny comics, and obscure indie books... all full of fully nude characters, striding around in the nude, having conversations in the nude, and rolling around in fountains in the nude.
Basically, think of San Andreas from Grand Theft Auto V. Now imagine smashing your way through that with a variety of trucks and weapons, to clear a path for a runaway nuclear missile carrier.
Now imagine that it wasn't a nuclear missile carrier, but a massive nude man! You could do so much with modern game physics. He could look really fantastic, if you know what I mean... <WINK>
Surely it's about time we messed with the heads of a whole new generation of gamer, by making them think they're nude when they're not?
You would've thought that the release of the WoW movie, earlier this year, would've been as good excuse as any to throw open the doors to new players, but... no. No it was not, apparently.
Surely a World of Warcraft 2 - which promises a fresh start to new gamers - is long, long overdue? Perhaps you could invite new players to try the franchise by retitling it World of Nudecraft, and taking away the option of armour and clothing.
There's one surefire way to make people sit up and pay attention to the series again: graphic nudity, in 4K virtual reality, with surround sound. The troops you control could be more nude than they've been in any other Command & Conquer game, running into battle fully "sky-clad".
There would be no need to hold anything back. You could show it all.
