Late last night, I opened my e-mail to find a rather long message sent from a reader by the name of Zach. In a nutshell, the e-mail contained ideas for a potential Legend of Korra/Last Airbender RPG Video Game. In case you’re unfamiliar with the term, RPG stands for Role Playing Game. In RPG’s, players take the role of a single player and play out the life of that player in a fictional setting.
Zach had a very interesting idea of incorporating the aspects of an RPG style game with Avatar. We’ve seen plenty of Avatar games over the years that have pretty much set gamers on the path of playing out specific story lines. All of the games were very basic and, in my opinion, too simplistic. Personally, I love RPG styled games. Even thought I’m not much of a gamer anymore, I’d prefer to play some sort of online RPG game over a lot of other genres in gaming.
I just love interacting with people, and doing so in a gaming medium has always been sort of intriguing. This is one of the reasons why I love Zach’s idea so much. But before I get into the nitty-gritty details on how I would see it shaping up, check out the e-mail Zach sent to me so you can get a better understanding on the vision:
