4. Death Note

What would you do if you had the power to kill someone simply by writing their name down in a notebook? Whether you choose to play as Kira or L, Death Note would be a great battle of the wits. One of the strongest parts of the series is watching how Kira and L play a game of cat and mouse. Kira naturally doesn’t want to be discovered and have his notebook taken away from him, whereas L wants to bring Kira to justice.

It’d be exciting to play a mystery game with a huge emphasis on the player’s ability to outsmart their opponent. In fact, you don’t even need to keep it between Kira and L. A developer could take the idea and put a twist on it. What if you were given the notebook, how would you use it? How would you avoid getting caught? With a series as popular as Death Note, we’re surprised a game like this hasn’t already been released.
