I watched this movie obsessively as a kid.

Strange idea for an MMO.

Dear Hollywood,

If you're reading this, could you pretty please stop it already with the pointless remakes, redos, re-imaginings and any other word starting with "re" that you can possibly come up with of classic movies that are fine as they are?

Not only will this force you to use your imagination and come up with something original, it will also ensure that crappy tie-in "MMOs" never see the light of day.

Thank you.

@Lenn Well said but I have to say that I will hold off until they release a "Big" MMO, you heard me Hollywood now that we have a "Total Recall" MMO it's time to start work on "Big" and you better hire Tom Hanks for the voice over work. ^_^

@Unshra

I want a home alone MMO. I'll play as a kid though, since they'll be overpowered while the thieves will be gimped.

I might log into it to see if the three breasted hooker made it in but otherwise I could care less.

Based on the remake? The one that has nothing to do with Mars?
NO THANKS.

Too bad, since it would be awesome to run around Mars with triple-breasted whores, alien tech and Quato.

I hadn't even heard about this remake. So at least there's a reason for the license, and it not just being a random tie-in mmo like The Mummy. Though I also really liked the Mummy, though I haven't played it much lately, so I'll at least give it a try. It still seems surprisingly random to me though.

Would love to see a sandbox MMO based on GTA where I could be a pimp and have my own whore house. Oh and it should have a PLEX system so I could gain gametime with my digital wh*res.

You know, I never read the original novel (is there a novel)? But I know the Schwarzenegger movie takes the concept of "Walter Mitty" and expands it in a simplistic way.

Maybe the new movie will be different and explore the idea of "discovering exactly who you are"?

Or it could be like left-over clam-bake that has sit outside for three days: untouched, unwanted, unloved, and stinky and rotten! :P

@Space Cobra I think it was a short story.

@Space Cobra Yep, it was “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick.

Well it seems like they are ticking all the boxes to make yet another crap game from an IP that could of been so much more.

Yay for mediocrity.
