Could Kylo Ren Really Be Rey's Brother?

Could Kylo Ren Really Be Rey's Brother?



  1. Kevin Chaisson says:

    A sequel to RED DEAD REDEMPTION, and I would love it if Bethesda would redo ALPHA PROTOCOL like it did for FALLOUT. Hell, give me another FALLOUT or KOTOR game, too. KINGDOMS OF AMALUR: RECKONING sequel? Anyone?

  2. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City in sequel form …
    Grand Theft Auto: Return to Vice City! All those great 80’s movies had a “Return to” or “Return of” sequel. Why not a game based on the 80’s doing the same. Still the BEST game of that franchise. 🙂

  3. Tim G says:

    A proper Banjo Kazooie game would be nice. No karts, just some good ole fashioned platforming.

  4. Tezi says:

    Xbox one needs to bring back the Oddworld series. Those games were gorgeously designed and funny as hell… in a depressing kind of way. BUT FUNNY NONE THE LESS!

  5. Crissy D. says:

    I would love to play Psychonauts on XBox360 and share its awesomeness with my kids!

  6. EV says:

    Xbox One needs a new Star Wars RPG like KotR.

  7. Anne K says:

    Fable. The original Fable. That is all.

  8. gman says:

    I want to see Fable on Xbox One!

  9. The Big D says:

    One franchise I would like to see return to the Xbox One would be Star Wars Battlefront. Definitely one of the best Star Wars games ever, and if they could incorporate 64 player matches it would be amazing. Other games would be Mass Effect and Gears of War, although they were for the 360.

  10. Ian says:

    I’d love to see Jade Empire make a return!

  11. Sarah says:

    I just need a 007 game. Game collections aren’t complete without it.

  12. Charles Tran says:

    Jet Set Radio Future. Who would have thought a game that involved roller skates and graffiti could be so fun.

  13. Joe Cuffe says:

    It’s gotta be Lego Marvel Superheroes. Because Lego DEADPOOL!!

  14. SR says:

    A new MechAssault game would be top. Chromehounds was the last good mech game that I played and before that was MechAssault. A new one would revitalize the genre.

  15. Chris says:

    I would love to see Tony Hawk Pro Skater, those games were a blast to play and just alot of fun to explore. Plus all the guest skaters and side missions were interesting too.

  16. HollywoodGeek says:

    would love to Knights of the Old Republic again on the new hotness that is Xbox One. #sorryBowsersmom

  17. Ashley Jackson says:

    Lego Marvel Superheroes! I love the Lego games.

  18. I would love to see Star Wars: The Knights of the Old republic remastered for the new generation, or just KoTOR 2 finished… Either one is cool with me.

  19. JNMshore says:

    I want to see Crimson Skies. I own the Original X-box disk, then purchased it game for download onto 360. Just take my money and let me keep playing.

  20. Omar Akbar says:

    Mass Effect to the next gen! (With a playable Diana Allers)

  21. Typo_Firebird says:

    Psychonauts for sure!

  22. Frank Szymanski says:

    I’d love to see a new Jade Empire or KOTOR

  23. The original XBox launched on November 15, 2001. At that time all I played was Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. Not sure that game would do well in today’s market.

    Xbox One games to look forward to – Mass Effect…Portal….Some sort of Star Wars flying game…you know how it is.

  24. Stephanie Oehmen says:

    btvs: chaos bleeds
    we need a new buffy game 🙂
    updated with the last few seasons and the comics universe plot too… have to be the original voices though
    although the guy that said we need another evil dead game had a point too, that’d be sweet :-p

  25. Paul says:

    I want more Borderlands. I’ve played so much of Borderlands 2 it’s outrageous.

  26. Emily says:

    I would love to see the Mass Effect series come to the Xbox One. I only got to play through once. There is more exploring and romancing to do. 🙂

  27. Chris D. says:

    Portal and Portal 2 would make me very happy.

  28. David Kiser says:

    I’d LOVE to see Jade Empire on the XBox One. A sequel would be better, but the question was about a classic XBox game. Yeah, that one. 🙂

  29. Layne LaVanway says:

    I see someone already snagged mine but I’m still going with Evil Dead Fistful of Boomstick. We have got to see an evil dead game in HD. “Honey you got real ugly”

  30. Matthew says:

    I like the suggestion above of bringing back the original Mechwarrior (key point: The first one!).

    As for Apple’s purchase, I would think they are trying to do something useful with that camera on the screen side. Especially after Samsung’s new controls in the Galaxy 4.

  31. Chad Goodman says:

    Probably seems like an odd choice but I would like to see a new Fusion Frenzy game. My wife, kids, and I had a blast playing that game on the original xbox.

  32. Ian says:

    Crimson Skies. Bonus if it had oculus rift support – that would be awesome.

  33. Abhishek says:


  34. Eric Mahaffey says:

    The next Fallout game and a sequel to PSYCHONAUTS!!!

  35. Nick says:

    You have reminded me about the unyielding march of time. My initial reaction to this was Classic games? The Xbox isn’t that old… Oh my god it came out in 2001. For the most part I am getting my wish as the Oddworld series is being rereleased on this generations hardware. I remember being really bummed that Project Gotham Racing was not a Batman game, so let’s make that. It would be nice if they remade some of the old games on new hardware, but hey, we can’t all be Nintendo.

  36. Kristoffer Bakken says:

    I would love to see Psychonauts come to the Xbox-One.

  37. Jaz says:

    I need a new Evil Dead game. Fistful of Boomstick or Regeneration were both my faves!

  38. Nick says:


  39. ljmclean says:

    They need to bring back MechAssault. The first game, not the failing sequel.

  40. Wes C. says:

    Any Star Wars, like Republic Commando or KOTOR.

  41. Tim says:

    I want to see Crimson Skies on the Xbox One!

  42. Jeff Wynn says:

    Splinter Cells were all great games. Bring another SC game out in honor of Tom Clancy.

  43. Chase314 says:

    I think Republic Commando deserves sequel! We need a new high quality squad based shooter and not just another C.O.D clone. Vor entye, ner vod!

  44. Morgan Barry says:

    There deffinately needs a re remake of conker’s bad fur day.

  45. Yalamar says:

    I would love to see a new Lost Odyssey game. That is one of the few games my wife actually watched me play all the way through.

  46. Daniel says:

    I would love to see Crimson Skies. Game still deserves more.

  47. michael b says:

    I’d like some conkers bad fur day

  48. MandalorynOranj says:

    I’ve gotta go with either KOTOR or Jedi Academy, there hasn’t been a good Star Wars game in too long.

  49. Mags says:

    I’d want one of the older Elder Scrolls games. they were so buggy that I never got to finish Oblivion which was such an awesome game. But if it is true that there is a BtVS game out there then I want that!

  50. Matt Hendrick says:

    I want the next Fallout game! You know what else deserves to be brought back, Psychonauts! That game was awesome!
