I'm not game developer inclined but I did once imagine/think aout an RPG battle system similar to Breath of Fire V and Valkyrie Profile 2 (hybrid turn-based/real-time action battles), but then those two games were released so my "dream" became redundant.

Not quite thread related but I have had literal dreams about games in the past. e.g. I dreamt I was playing Super Metroid, except the world in my dream Super Metroid was very huge and Ridley (the big-sprite dragon) was a basically a normal enemy and there were multiples of them. Actually, I'd like to see more super huge enemies in games in general. I rarely feel threatened by a monster unless it's a horror game or it's Shadow of the Colossus. I want that sense of scale. I think halfway or two-thirds into Final Fantasy VII, you encounter a massive giant enemy in a crater area (probably unique to that location?) that basically just steps on Cloud and friends as its attack. That sense of scale. Also, in the movie The Mist where in the end, all hell breaks loose and monsters start flooding the human world via a portal, including one massive monster that steps over the protagonist's car while the characters inside can only stare in not just in fear, but wonder (Wander and the Colossus pun?) too. That sense of scale.

Other dreams include personally starring in a Warcraft-esque strategy game complete with two pieces of possibly original orchestral music. Basically I was seeking refuge inside a castle with other villagers away from the man/orc warring outside. While I was inside the safe concrete walls, the music was tranquil yet with a slight sense of unease with the main melody played with a harp. For whatever reason, I had to leave the castle straight into the battlefield, and the music turned full bombastic orchestral. Either my subconscious brain composed these music or somehow the music in real life (e.g. someone watching TV) found its way into my dream. On another occasion, I was once in a state of half-sleep/half-wake and in this state, I managed to compose a short guitar riff. I forgot it as soon as I woke up though and the only thing I remember is the faint knowledge that my half-asleep brain did attempt to compose it. Also on two separate dreams, I dreamt about buying a complete in box copy of Secret of Mana and Super Metroid (SM with strategy guide book). Yes, I really love SoM so much that I dreamt about acquiring it only to wake up and be disappointed with reality. This was back in the day when I didn't know about emulation or PayPal yet and the games were hard to find in store, and if I could, I would've bought the for-rent copies (there's no way I could finish an RPG game in one week!).

Underwater survival horror. You must escape an underwater lab. No monsters, save for a giant underwater behemoth that attempts to stalk your every move. Diminishing oxygen, water pressure and the ever present threat of this monster wrecking an integral part of the station if it sees you are the biggest threats.

Add a cast of intelligent characters, psychological horror (is that giant underwater behemoth real?) and a general sense of paranoia and claustrophobia. In other words, a video game version of Sphere would be perfect. Or if you prefer, The Abyss.

Omfg yes. And Sphere, for the record.

I've mentioned this before, but: a Souls game, with the Souls feel and approach to lore, but set entirely in deep space aboard a gigantic, ancient, forgotten space station teeming with killer machines as well as monsters.

Also FFVIII.

The most impressive thing to me, out of all my gaming memories, is the "second quest" from the first Zelda. My dream game would be a second quest to a game I already like, such as Super Metroid or Mario 64.
