What might NOT be Realized

Okay, like how we wonder what might be Realized, one must keep in mind what might NOT be.

As mentioned in Captain Gamer: Digital Defender, Master Chief won't be Realized, at least not for a looooooooooong time.

Yes, I know that Halo weapons are in the comic, but it is OOC; it does not really have an effect on the story, its a look at what might be in the future of our beloved hero.

Also, there is Grand Theft Auto. No one in their right mind would - with a good heart - unleash another street-gang or a mafia guy on the world. I mean, in GTA, you can pick up a rocket launcher and blow up cars. You can steal TANKS! You can take bats and beat up innocent passerbys, wait for the paramedics, beat THEM up, and then swipe their vehicle.

So think about it...

Who might not be taken from their games and given an existence in the real world?
Chocolate Ninja

Tetris blocks. You could try building with them, but they'd have to be buildings with holes in them or dissapearing ones. Razz

Also, The Sims. That would be too boring to realize. Probably not very many RTS games in general. Strategy RPG characters, perhaps.
Konoko

Yeah, a lot of strategy RTS games wouldn't, or MMOs. If they had their own world, maybe, and even then its pretty doubtful. I mean, sure, some people might think the Warhammer 40K stuff is really cool. But actually realizing that sort of stuff, theres not many places it can go.

I would be doubtful about some others being created by IDR, simply because of what the rest of that persons world is like. Pretty much anything thats very violent, post apocalyptic, various Anti-Heroes...I'm sadly aware that the chances for Legacy of Kain stuff to show up are really slim. xP
Koji_Tsunami

None of the Army Men games will be realized. I just can't see what the world would do with little, moving, gun wielding, plastic green and tan figures.

Any game with custom characters will not be realized, e.g. Morrowind. Probably not even most Final Fantasy games. (Maybe FF IIV...) but anything with a lot of room for customization won't be made, at least, that's what I think.
Anomaly

Based on the Professor's stand on creating weapons, I don't think any RTS games will be Realized. No matter the genre otherwise, they're all focussed on war.
In that vein, the IDR probably won't Realize any FPS or 3PS, either. Shooter games mean weapons, and we've already seen the Professor's stance on this as being as such:
Skybait J

But they'll get realized in the end anyway, it seems. Or at least Halo will. Maybe by the Untold Villain....because Czar gets the Needler in OOC.

...What about horror genre games? Even those without untold amounts of gore and guns. I have one in mind....but I cant remember the details of it....

I mean, what about Resident Evil? Having any charactors from those would almost be asking for a zombie invasion <.<

Er....FFVII? Razz

....Why FFVII anyway? Why not VII or IX or X? >.>

Then again, there is the case of Kirby, where he was actually Realized after his nemesis, because of the way that nemesis was affecting the world's sleeping patterns. So, one possible (if unlikely) situation could be a zombie invasion coming out of nowhere, and the IDR Realizing Chris, Jill and the gang to stop it.

Because 7 is, in my experience, the best-known and most celebrated of the games, I'm guessing.
But, seriously. Who wouldn't want to see Cloud Strife pop up, and then Sephiroth pops up, and then the Captain pops up to help fight him, and then he establishes a link with Cloud (God only knows how you'd get through to that guy), and gets Omnislash, and then they both Omnislash at once, and then Sephiroth goes "I'm die!"?
...well, ok, I'm guessing most of you wouldn't want to see that.

Another possibility for why 7 and no other is because Constable Gamer was listed in the Gamer Games as having one of Yuffie's limit breaks as a Game Card. Hmm... while it's likely that's non-canon, ignoring that for a moment and following that train of thinking leads to the interesting possibilities of Darkstalkers and Shantae being Realized...

Or so it SEEMS he was realized after the sleep patterns changed. He could've been realized before, but we dont know, because Kirby was realized in secret <.<

Yes, but that guy could've had a string of bad dreams weeks before anyone else did. Anybody could've been having sleeping trouble before the whole lack of sleep epidemic came about, so we still dont know if Kirby or the insomnia plauge came first.

Speaking of Dreamland, I doubt NiGHTS will be realised.
Despite my personal fondness for the character, I don't even think that the IDR knows about the dude(tte)...
The game just isn't very well known.
Nuts.

NiGHTS is not really a guy, girl, or an it.

But still, I think they would know of NiGHTS into Dreams, especially since there's a new NiGHTS game coming out on the Wii (Journey into Dreams).

But still, I'm not entirely sure if it would be Realized, since there's not only nothing much the characters could give to humanity (through the characters themselves or the items in the game) and we already have a dream-based Realization.

Also, they're all dreams. Who would want their dreams to actually become manifest?

1.NiGHTS' gender is variable to what you want him/her to be.

2. I concede. You're right, Journey of Dreams would cause them to know about the character.

3.Actually just based on how NiGHTS moves, you can get a basic outline of her personality, and with JoD coming up, I'd say it's very possible to have a NiGHTS with very hman emotions.

4.Depends on the Dream. I've had a few which would be nice to have realized...
Anomaly

Well, actually, Kirby sets a precedent. He's from Dreamland, but they still went ahead and Realized him; clearly, something being a dream isn't much of a barrier to IDR scientists.

And wasn't NiGHTS referred to as a 'he' at some point in the manual? I'm not sure about it, but I have no idea if we even still have a copy of NiGHTS, so I can't really check.

Though, in any case, we do at least know that NiGHTS won't be Realized yet. A properly Realized NiGHTS would have to have all acrobatic flight ability intact, and based on the Warp Star, the kind of flight which Digital Reality is capable of providing so far is far from acrobatic.

You'll note SEGA's kept the gender ambiguous on purpose. And then gave NiGHTS a female voice actress for JoD.

Hmmm... maybe the whole thing that the IDR is develpoing flight means that they'll at least try to make NiGHTS?

1. Yes, but, like Koji showed, its gender is not clear.

2. And there is bound to be at least a couple people who at least heard of the game.  I'd say that the Professor may had heard of it when it was released.

3. Yes, NiGHTS' movements indicate a playful nature, but keep in mind that NiGHTS is a Nightmaren.  Nightmares can seem to be friendly, but they quickly turn on you.  Of course, this could mean diddly-squat due to NiGHTS protecting the kids from Wizeman...

4. But imagine if ANY dream could be manifested.  The implications would be terrible.  I have had dreams in which I was tortured or killed.  Would you want such dreams to become real?

Its a whole different ballpark with NiGHTS.  His 'dreamland' is of a different sort.  Unlike Kirby's, NiGHTS' realm is segmented into two parts: Nightopia and Nightmare and creatures exist in both places.  In Kirby's world, it is a great big place which is itself a happy dream.  The nightmares are evil monsters rather than places.

And yes, NiGHTS will be Realized only after the Warpstar is fully figured out.

Just because a voice actor is female doesn't mean anything.  Bart Simpson is voiced by a woman.

Maybe, maybe not.  They could develop flight with Arwings or a Clank-backpack, as an example.
Majin Luigi

I wonder what kind of propullsion the Warpstar uses?

On girl voice actors: Bart Simpson, Ash Ketchum, and various other guys with female voice actors all sound like guys, at least to a point.
NiGHTS sounds distinctly female.
Koji_Tsunami

It occurs to me that this entire conflict could be resolved if they realised silver-age power Superman (even without flight) with modern-day logic (which they didn't have in 60s DC comics) and a badass motorbike, and the story would end pretty easily.
Of course, that would be cheating, but it would make sense just to summon a guy who can juggle planets, and have him silence the violence for you.

But of course, all of Superman's video games SUCK! And since he's a comic book character, he doesn't get to be realized.

Yay for illogical lack of clearly possible deus ex machina.

Oh and also... The army men games don't get realized either. But it would be funny.

Badass Motorbike?
Koji_Tsunami

Why not?
They could use it to replace flight.
And besides,
I've always wanted to see Supes ride a motorbike.
And crash.
And then laugh at him.
Majin Luigi

*sigh*
Yeah.

oh. Um... Pac-Man.
Don't see what the point of realizing him would be.
Skybait J

In that line of thought, Pong.
Koji_Tsunami

Pajama Sam.
It would shock me to no end if there was a chapter about Pajama Sam.
