It was only five days ago WWE '13 was released in the United States for Xbox 360 and PS3 and many fans are already calling it the best game in the series.
I am one of them. The game features enhanced gameplay, great online servers, fantastic graphics, and —quite possibly for the first time since WWE Smackdown: Here Comes the Pain—a story mode that is actually fun.
WWE '13's main theme this year was revisiting the famous Attitude Era and allowing gamers to relive some of the greatest moments in professional wrestling history. While I've enjoyed playing the mode as well as everything else offered by WWE '13, it's just in my nature to wonder: what's next in the series?
Well, we'll likely see some slight gameplay and roster changes as well as improved graphics like every year, but how can they top this year's main feature of the Attitude Era?
One thing that continued to come to my mind while playing Attitude Era mode and checking the ratings tab was the idea of featuring the Monday Night Wars.
Now, the only bad part about that is that you'd likely have to feature some of the events from this year's Attitude Era mode to truly relive the Monday Night Wars. But wouldn't it be nice to be able to go back to WCW and relive the arrival of the NWO, Wolfpack, Goldberg, and the other stars of WCW?
Unfortunately, that will likely never happen. Two of the biggest names from that era, "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan and Sting, are employed by rival company TNA.
Another idea that came to mind was the thought of continuing to focus on generations and feature in WWE '14 the post-Attitude Era. Feature storylines including McMahon-Helmsley Era, the debut of "The American Badass" Undertaker, The Invasion, Evolution and possibly even include the beginning of the Ruthless Aggression Era with the debut of Randy Orton, Batista and John Cena.
I don't know about you, but I would love to relive the McMahon-Helmsley era as Triple H, Vince McMahon, and Stephanie McMahon took over the WWE while superstars such as Mick Foley, The Rock, and Chris Jericho fought to keep the company.
Then, how about playing The Invasion? Get Shane McMahon to buy WCW and Stephanie to buy ECW, then start having run-ins during matches. These were two of my favorite storylines in the WWE and I would love to revisit the events on a modern WWE video game.
Many gamers who weren't fans of the WWE series purchased WWE '13 solely on the Attitude Era, so what game mode would lead you to purchasing WWE '14? Don't like any of my ideas and have your own? Let us all know in the comments below!
