    I think they should make a game with the WFC engine and gameplay elements but they should bring the story down to earth. It could be like a legit G1 game and it could be based off the "More then Meets the Eye" mini series and other G1 episodes.

    A Transformers RPG set on Cybertron, maybe in the early days of the war. You'd get to create your own Transformer, explore Cybertron, talk to other characters, decide which side to fight for, etc. Something like that would be pretty fucking awesome.

    ^This. Character developing, upgrading, and customization IN GAME. WfC had that to a degree in Multiplayer, but there was no way to develop your character in any permanent way in campaign.

    A Transformers action RPG would be a homerun.

    Mass Effect + Transformers = <3

    mechafires idea would be equally awesome, but id love to see something where you're in the midst of the war or maybe just at the start of it! both Autobots and Decepticons are sending squads [ala IDW's Infiltration type stuff] out to other planets or are already in the midst of attempting to conquer them. Autobots come to the rescue or set up outposts and space station bases. Trying to find energon whilst also trying to protect other planets from the cons

    thatd be pretty tight

    great shooting mechanics + the integration of transformation [somewhat ala ROTF only more refined] + the ability to engage in full on melee combat FTW

    Going to be lame and agree with an RPG, hand it over to Bioware and sit back and wait for it(just kick them once in a while to make sure that they don't re-hash environments LOL).

    Story-wise it would indeed be a lot better of you are not an Autobot or Decepticon but a regular Cybertronian stuck between the two just trying to survive and maybe the ending will be decision time which side you'll choose (insert awesome outro movie).

    Action RPG Transformers game. Kingdom Hearts style but with transformers. I think that would be awsome as long as it has free roam.

    A game set on Earth with some human interaction. Perhaps missions where you had to pose as their car. Transformers games rarely keep the sense of scale that makes Transformers so deffinative. Placing the game on Cybertron completely obliterates one of the most interesting aspects of the franchise. Make it a linear campaign over a predetermined (yet constantly changing, think Batman: Arkham Asylum) world, with different play types for the campaign (such as shooting, stealth, puzzles, but don't just use them once and be done) and have side missions that use these same play types. the 'pose as a real vehicle' mechanic could be integrated quite well.

    The Armada PS2 game was pretty darn good, I think something updating that would be the perfect game.

    Also I've been wanting to see a Transformers spin on racing games for some time now.

    Well like it's been said before, an RPG, perhaps MMO, with massive customization, faction choice, open world etc. Would be a fine dream game but it's been mentioned countless times before so...


    I think a First-person DOTA (Defense of the Ancients) style game for Transformers would be interesting.
