What would have been really nice is if a SIM PC Developer did an AL()ENS game on PC. Cause all I ever wanted was a simple SIM of the AL()ENS movie experience, in PC game form using an edge pushing Next Gen vis engine. Not really hard to deliver.

Make the Marines look LIKE Marines. AL()ENs look LIKE their movie counterparts. Set pieces enviros look LIKE they did stylewise in the movies. Have some level designers create some very cool locations to duke it out on.

Do NOT use voice actors who suck. Do NOT mix in ANY forced 3rd pov for ANY characters/Species. Since you plan to actually SELL this game to the masses, do some polls to ask for a general concensus on ideas you are not sure will be well accepted by those you intend to market to.

If unsure on stuff LIKE 3rd povs? Add BOTH 1st AND 3rd povs so ALL player bases are covered. Make sure the PC version HAS Dedicated server support. A huge 1 on this list??? Leave your EGOS at home. If ya can`t do the above, don`t touch this particular licence.

If you just have to vent your creative licence, build YOUR own game from scratch. Don`t go re engineering the wheel with a carved in stone licence like the Alien universe. Cause when ya do, we end up with Spitters, and Boilers, Crushers, Lurkers, and 3rd povs where they are not wanted. We end up with Marine chicks that look more like they are about to go Clubbing repleat with Princess Leia hair buns and tight pants. Mohawks, tattoos... iron sights... the list goes on.

I`d always hope iD got the chance at bat to do an AL()ENS PC game. Loved DOOM IIIs sp campaign. It moved good, looked great.... atmosphere you could literally cut a knife with. Aaaah well. There is still hope, but previous attempts have beat this franchise to death.
