I want a action adventure/beat/shooter in 3rd person, like say Final Fight/Metal Gear combonation.

I agree with Draven on this.

I also think that it'll far more likely to see this kind of game as opposed to an RTS. While RTS games are great & would make an excellent way to experience the Joeverse, they are rather involved. An action/adventure game would more likely appeal to the casual gamer.

I'll third that. Although I would go further and say it needs to be a Final Fight/Metal Gear/Call of Duty type of game - you need to have the all out firefights like in the cartoon (maybe include an easter egg where you can switch all the gunfire to cartoon-type lasers!), it can't all be Snake Eyes-style.

The multiplayer option would have to rock - basically mirror the wars we all had as kids when we'd get a bunch of guys together and combine all our forces, tanks and jeeps and FANGs everywhere!

I think 3rd person is key as you'd want to see which "action figure" you're playing with, but even better would be the ability to toggle between third and first person views as preferred.

here's some stuff to whet your appetite....

I just wish ea's would be half as good as some of this stuff.

Wow! What game is that from? They got a few of the vehicles wrong. The Stinger needs missiles. Although it is a WIP the Rattler's engines seem to be a bit to high.

WHOA! Now those are some nice graphics. But if EA is going to make a G.I. Joe video game I'd prefer an RTS to just some run of the mill shooter.

This sounds like awesome news. Whatever it's based on i'm pretty sure i'll enjoy it. I enjoyed Superman Returns alright XD Either way, it's about time.

As for it bing a PC Battlefield game, OH DEAR GOD, I HOPE NOT! I actually want to be able to play it!!

A multiplayer shooter or strategy like game are the best choice for the Gi JOE brand... #tank#

The new GI Joe game needs to look and play similer to Konami's Metal Gear Solid series.

Nuff said.
