Founded in 2004 Telltale Games has since emerged as a juggernaut in the choose your own adventure video game market with episodic adaptions of everything from Game of Thrones to the most recent Batman and Guardians of the Galaxy series. With their continued success in adapting these franchises here are some other franchises I would like to see adapted with Telltale's signature formula.

Supernatural is still going strong even into Season Thirteen and since Telltale already adapted both Walking Dead and Game of Thrones it wouldn't be too much of a stretch to do Supernatural. I would like to see the Telltale series go back to the earlier seasons offering an untold tale from early in the Winchesters' career. I would also like to see the return of both Bobby Singer and John Winchester for this one.

If Telltale is going to adapt Supernatural they might as well adapt the series that inspired it and many other serialized fantasy shows. With Season Eleven on the horizon now would be a good time to release a Telltale series. Like Supernatural I think they should go with an untold tale approach and go back to the earlier days of the series.

So far Telltale's adaptions of Batman have gone really well so I would love to see what they could do with Batman's less-exciting counterpart. Like the Batman series I don't think a Superman series would have to be tied to established comic continuity and could offer a different take on the last son of Krypton. Who knows, if a Superman game does well it could pave the way for a Wonder Woman game and maybe even a full-blown Justice League game.

With Guardians of the Galaxy Telltale has proven they are able to adapt a more light-hearted team property and I would like to see that continued with everyone's favorite reptiles: the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I would love to see an art style similar to Guardians with perhaps a little more cartoony feel to it. Like the Guardians of the Galaxy Telltale series I would keep the focus on the leader, Leonardo, with the chance to play as the other turtles.

ONE PIECE

This is probably the least know property on this list, but I think the adventures of Luffy and his pirate crew are worthy of a Telltale adaption. The main focus of the series would probably be Luffy with plenty of room for his crew mates also. An anime inspired art style would be cool to see.

This is probably the least likely adaption on this list, but wouldn't it be fun to solve mysteries with the Mystery, Inc gang?

Those are my picks for some Telltale adaptions I would like to see. What are some of your picks?
