Last year, we produced a Gallery of the Day about franchises we hoped Telltale Games would license. But even after grabbing the rights to Batman, Marvel, and Minecraft games, Telltale has barely scratched the surface of what it can do. So here are 8 more games that would flourish under a "Telltale treatment".

Any other license you think we missed? Share them in the comments!

Doctor Who

Doctor Who has a long history of video games that rarely lived up to the show's potential. Telltale's formula offers a great alternative: Episodic, character-focused games where your decisions influence time and space. Actions and conversations held in the distant past might have consequences that unfold over centuries. And if you don't like the outcome, a quick time jump could fix everything - provided you can do so without crossing your own timeline.

What's more, there are all kinds of narrative approaches a Telltale Doctor Who game could take. You could play as a new companion who stumbles across the TARDIS, or the Doctor himself as he travels the Vortex. And it might be an opportunity for the Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi to work with past actors like David Tennant or Matt Smith. Whatever happens, BBC isn't making another Doctor Who season until 2017, so a Telltale game is a great way to fill the void.
