    Idea for racing game.

    I just had a great idea: A racing game with all the famous fictional cars. Imagine racing as The Batmobile, KITT, The General Lee, Mach 5, etc.

    Imagine starting a new thread every time a random idea pops into your head…

    I’m sure that no one ever though about that, just as you clearly never though about they money they would need to spend in licenses just to be allowed to do it, sort of the main reason why titles such as GTA make up their own car brands, take the “Vigilante” for example:

    Most Smash Brother characters are already owned by Nintendo.

    And the few that aren't are usually put in there for promotional purposes.

    Ok then make it a Disney game. They own most IPs anyway.

    Sigh...

    Disney owns, what? Marvel, Lucasfilms and... Pixar? (I'm probably missing some shit.)

    That's still quite a stretch to cover "all the famous" cars.

    Edited: Also, the closest example for what you were looking for is probably Dead By Daylight, now go check how those famous characters were implemented and the price behind it.

    Shonen jump is all owned by one company.

    Most of the smash roster is owned by nintendo. Having a character as a fighter in smash is great marketing regardless. Even though square had a tizzy about Cloud being in smash again which is why he wasn't in the world of light cinematic.

    Ed Boon spitballed a horror movie fighting game a while back. I would love to see that.



    Oh wait it was actually a thing.

    Licensing all those vehicles would be a challenge, but it could be fun.

    Fox, ABC, ESPN... they're not a small entity.

    That's not the point. How many of the cars the OP mention are part of that? How many "famous" cars are part of it?

    I don’t know how many in total, but there are at least a few.

    OP really didn't name anything but outline a concept. It doesn't have to be those cars.

    You didn't answer the question though. What are the "famous" cars are you going get then...?

    Because it seems that the “racing game with ALL famous fictional cars” is suddenly changing into a “racing game with a few sorts of famous fictional cars”.
