Well I would really love to see how it would end up, if Obsidian would ever had a chance to make their own version of fantasy JRPG :-D

African tribes era or Aztec empire based fantasy would be something fresh.

I will say, something I've always wanted to try out is something set to the Arabian Nights style background. The closest I've seen is TSR's old Al-Quadim, and I could never persuade my gaming group to try it out. 

 

It would be interesting to see what Obsidian might do if they overloaded on old Sinbad movies and the Thief of Bagdad, sprinkle in a bunch more from the 1,001 nights, and see what emerged.

One word: Wuxia

 

If BioWare won't ever give us the Jade Empire sequel some of us crave so much, maybe someone else can have a crack at the genre.  Whether actiony or tactical (Wuxia more lends itself to an action RPG, but it could work as a tactical RPG too), I just desperately want another martial arts RPG.  Also, I'm not completely sure how you would fit this into the game, but I also would want a training montage where our young hero gets trained by the silver-haired, long-bearded, wise master, complete with the hero slacking off while they think the master is dozing off, only to find out that he was completely alert the whole time and he comically beats our ass as punishment.  I suppose it could be a mini-game.

Anything that isn't fantasy.

I guess I would vote sci-fi. But more like an arpg. I dont want none of Obs "srs bsns" mechanics or any form of countdown timer.

After reading Eisenhorn i would absolutely love a 40k RPG. Although chances of that happening are probably close to zero. :)

Or Star Trek RPG

Since we're discussing "clones" of other games, I'd like to see Obsidian do their own spin on the Mass Effect-type game.

 

Or maybe a wild west type game!

Sooo much this, a Dark Heresy RPG by Obsdian could be so, so awesome.

 

Or maybe they could do some kind of modern day, maybe 20-min into the future spy action RPG...

They could call it something like...  oh, I don't know...  maybe Omega Code?  :-

You mean something like...  <insert shifty eyes>  Alpha Protocol Plus?  8)
