I'm a huge fan of the "Mercenaries" modes in the modern Resident Evil games and feel like they would make for a great topic choice. They have a bit of a cult following but most players dismiss them as just another unlockable when this couldn't be further from the truth! I honestly think that they provide some of the deepest and most rewarding 3D action gameplay out there with one of the highest skill ceiling I've ever seen. The surprising amount of strategy and planning needed to achieve highscores completely overshadows more popular modes like Gears Horde or CoD Zombies and changes the entire game for the better. You guys are no strangers to diving deep into arcade mechanics and scoring systems, especially when it comes to shoot 'em ups and the like. So imagine my disappointment when the whole topic was over and done with within 30 seconds on the Resident Evil 4 show!
I understand that this is a rather unorthodox idea, so what I would suggest is to take The Mercenaries 3D on the 3DS as the official template and then analyse each incarnation in chronological order. It'd be worth it, I swear!
Bonus argument: I would venture a guess that most of you already own at least a few of these games, so it would just be a matter of popping them back in and taking a different look this time around. "Always appeal to people's greed", that's what my dad always said.
