EA Should Use These Star Wars Games as Inspiration

star wars ea

We all know that EA is a big leader in Star Wars video games. With the new canon, we know that they can also do pretty much anything they want in terms of story and put a Star Wars spin on it. But is this really the best way to do it? Are we steering too far away from what made us all fans in the first place- the original story and movies? What if new Star Wars games complemented the new movies coming out?

cinelinx tells us what they think EA should use as inspiration for future Star Wars games:

  1. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
  2. Star Wars Starfighter for the PS2
  3. Star Wars Republic Commando
  4. Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic (no complaints from us on this one)

They go on in their article to explain why they think these games are the best representation of

EA could even be creative and use the incoming VR headsets to do something entirely new…. let US be the Jedi. Put the game in first person and give us a lightsaber, then add in Mirrors Edge style gameplay. Oooooh!”

Now that’s an interesting idea. I’m a big fan of Mirror’s Edge and similar games. I’d love to see a Star wars themed version of something like that. What do you think? Do you agree with the suggestions made by Cinelinx or do you want to see something completely different from future Star Wars games?
