i got a great idea for a pokemon game.
it could music themed!, moreso guitar themed but you get the jist of it.
you can start out as a boy or girl getting your first electric guitar.
before that it starts out as all pokemon games do, you pick one of three guitars which can be a starcaster, les paul or ibanez RG or something basic (the cheap hundred dollar ones) like that then your set out on your own to become an amazing guitarist and earn all of the eight BOSS pedals (like the pun there?) the eight boss's can be famous guitarist but they must each be from a somewhat different style, the first boss can be Angus Young since he does mostly chords in his songs and then a solo (which is relatively easy) and the list goes on to include BB king , Rhoads (he will be one of the last) Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix, Santana, Slash, then Marty Friedman is the last boss until the Elite Four which will consist of Vai , Satriani, Malmsteen, Petrucci.

Instead of moves , you learn to play the guitar, and as you reach higher levels your learn better moves, you start off knowing only chords and you soon reach an old man (Jimmy Page) who teach's you age old way of the "solo" and the basics of it which can be a basic pentatonic scale or something and as you progress though the game you learn new skills like tapping and arpeggios and as your grow levels you get better and better at the skill you already have.

the battle system will be like pokemon but your on a stage and you have to impress a crowd. for example angus uses a 3 chord progression , you can do "pentatonic lick" to do better, get the idea?

instead of potions and items and things of that sort you get amps, the better the amp the better the healing power or better it makes your "attack" or defense or w/e. you start off with being able to buy roland microcube and then move up to things like the dual rectifier, the JVM's or w/e and you can use things like poison which hurt your opponent, they are the marshall MG's and the line 6 3's and things of that sort. all the items come in different combo forms starting from 15 watt to full blown 120 watt halfstacks.

as you progress through the game you can tell the time changes, as this goes through time rather quickly, the beginning you find dave mustaine as he is getting kicked out of metallica and later in the game you hear about the pink floyd founder dying and things like that. somethings in this game are relevant to the music world and some are not. Randy Rhoads dies on the plane ride home after you beat him in a "battle".

now down to the basics , well sort of. you go through the game collecting guitars and you can keep six guitars at once and you get all sorts of guitars which the commonness of the guitars are relevant to the real world, like strats and les pauls you see everywhere basically in a lot of areas and then there are legendary guitars which are the original frankenstrat , the original polka dot rhoads guitar, the burnt jimi hendrix guitar and slash's 59 les paul and they are HARD TO GET just like legendary pokemon are.

anyway you dont just find random guitars laying around (well not usually) you have to battle people for them. the rhoads guitar you get after digging on rhoads grave after you visit it, which is hard to find. the frankenstrat you have to battle eddie in a lost abandoned music store that he is rebuilding. slash's les paul you get after you beat him when you find him in a drunken haze after a GNR show. The Jimi Hendrix guitar you get when you reach level 60 and learn six string tap sweep arpeggio, then you go back to the boss stage where you battled hendrix and play an encore but you must use the hendrix wah pedal and the six string tap sweep arpeggio, when you use it a hidden door pops up and walk in and open the guitar case and there it is.

during the game you battle people but a lot of them are famous people from bands that you and i like, ranging from pantera, to derek tucks band to darkest hour to michael jackson (beat it had guitar) to cobain to so on and so on.

when you begin the game you have a rival and he is......HERMAN LI! he pops up at the most annoying places just like gary oak did in pokemon.

there are different types of guitars, the blues, versatile and metal ,jazz, classic rock and so on and so on. seeing as there are thousands of guitars, well just stick to the basic 151 for now.....ranging from basic starcaster to the lengendary guitars. later in the game you get the rr1's the expensive Les Paul's and strats and SG's ,Explorers, RG's , ESP's, and so on and so on, itll have all the major brands and a few custom shop brands and things of that sort.

how you attain the guitars is in many ways, you can play people for guitars, buy them, find them, steal them (thats hard to do), but mostly play people for them but you dont always have to take the opponents guitar if you have a billion strats, you can trade it for extra money.

i yeah you know the "i herd u liek mudkipz" thing?
that can be " so i herd u liekd jaguars?" hahaha

anyway, would you buy this???
this is just a rough draft i made in an hour in my head and im most likely will never make this but still.
DISCUSS THIS!.

Sorry doesn't even cover it....
I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money.I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down.

Gay. It could never amount to Pokemon's actual gaemplay.

No, I was referring to the scary amount of thought you've put into this.

Quote by Suav Nitebeest
Two better ideas:

1. How about some kind of real-life RPG where you buy a guitar and learn to play it?

2. As for the video game, I hear Pokemon is a good one.


1- that wouldnt sell , not saying mine would but i know yours wouldnt sell, people like pretending to play it, like guitar hero.

2- i based this off pokemon, its a great game but i just thought a guitarish one would be more suitable for guitarist.

yes but no, there are no actual songs in this and you dont press five buttons in a certain speed and order, its like the pokemon battle system, its explained in the wall of text.
#22
i thought it was a cool idea
Gear:
PRS SE Singlecut, blue with stoptail (my baby)
Line 6 Spider III 75 (shut up)
Epiphone Les Paul standard
Cheapo Yamaha nylon string
even more cheapo Fender steel string acoustic

I see an epic game on the horizon...


OK, not as good as Pokemon, but close enough for me to like it!
And Herman Li as a rival?
He would be more of an "inconvenience" than a rival.

#38
So, is anyone going to actually make this game? Obviously not as an official thing, but just for fun?...

I mean with like, RPG Maker or something.
#39
