GamerFitNation presents the Superman Game Project, in which 20 video game developers answer the question: Is it possible for a game developer to create a good Superman game? This came about when we asked Rocksteady Studios if they could do something no video game developer has been able to do yet: create a good Superman game. Tell us what you think, gamers: Is Superman too big for gaming?
The video features developers from Capcom, Rocksteady Studios, PlayStation, Naughty Dog, NetherRealm Studios, Marvel Comics, DC Comics and more.
Collectively, the developers cover most of the issues facing a Superman game. Superman’s essentially invincible, so there’s no risk to the player unless Superman’s powers are diminished, but a Superman with diminished powers isn’t really Superman. The game could instead revolve around Superman saving people as quickly as possible instead. Plus, the game will need a great engine in order to handle Superman’s controls both while flying and while on the ground. A great superman needs great writers, great controls and a great engine. Some of the developers suggested that next-gen consoles may be the medium required to make a spectacular Superman game, so gamers eager to play Superman may not have to wait long.
