It's no secret a heap of people really liked the GM Mode in the SVR games and some people consider it one of the best things that they've done.
Personally, I loved it, and would actually buy a game specifically made for GM Mode.
I had this thought though - imagine if WWE grab another bunch of developers to create a GM Mode that goes for five years... ten years... even twenty years?!
Say that the "storyline" mode of the game went for fifteen years. You started as the GM of RAW in 1998. Each WWE superstar in 1998 is on your roster, and you control each show (maybe house shows?) and every superstar. And every superstar (or at least, every recognisable and semi-important superstar) the WWE has ever had will come in as a 'free agent' that you can pick up if you want to, at the time of their real WWE debut, and this goes on from 1998 all the way to the end of 2013.
You would decide who stays on the roster, who gets fired, who gets what title, which WCW/ECW guys/girls to pick up, and even have a partial say in who would draft to Smackdown and WWECW!
Naturally, there would be a different mode where you can just control it the way you want, which would be non-canon and you could pick up any of the superstars/divas/legends the game includes at any time, ala the SVR games GM mode.
I dunno about you guys, but I think WWE could make a killing off of this, and it doesn't even need to be graphically intense, just intriguing, and canonically correct.
