I'd be willing to bet I was one of the few people who actually owned a Saturn and the original Nights with the analog controller ... That being said, I really don't understand the obsession with Nights. I thought it was a mediocre on-rails semi-platformer with music that made me want to die. I'd much rather play Rez for a similar experience. No offense to those who enjoy it, but it's one of those games that kind of leaves me scratching my head.

I wish they'd do something with Burning Rangers, that game was pretty cool. I think a Fireman game could actually work pretty well — A sort of quasi-simulation where you could drive the trucks, spray the hoses, climb the ladders, swing the axes, save the children, mini games to stay in shape or get different buffs, etc. Different types of structures and fires would require different equipment and strategy. Wrap that up in a LA Noire storyline about a murdering arsonist (and a wise-cracking chief played by Denis Leary), and you've got a quality game.
