What I'd love to see is an FPS/RPG done with super heroes with an emphasis on controlling how your hero develops. I would want it done in one of two ways. The first is you could do something similar to the honorable mention. You would start out picking either a basic power or archetype with a set of basic powers and then from there depending on how you played either your current powers would become stronger or you would develop new powers.
The other way I could see it working is similar to how Mutants & Masterminds or the HERO System works. You start off with a set number of points to spend on abilities but instead of buying specific powers you build your powers off of a long list of effects and modifiers. So for example if you wanted to create a fireball you would start with the Ranged Attack effect then add the AOE and Fire modifiers to it.
I just think it would really interesting to start off with a hero who is only capable of taking on street level thugs at the beginning and then to see him evolve into someone that is capable of taking on Galactus-esque villains at the end all based on your decisions and play style. Kind of like what Grant Morrison is currently doing with Superman.
On top of this maybe you could also throw in a fully destructible environment and reputation system. So if you start wracking up a ton of collateral damage in your fights the police, military, or some anti-super agency could be called in to deal with you. The same goes if you start killing your opponents. On the other hand though if you start killing your enemies it could give you bonuses against other enemies since they know your a ruthless killer. We could even take this a step farther and if your reputation becomes negative enough you become a villain.
Let's face it, everyone at some point in their life has wished they were a super hero. I feel a game like this would be the closest any of us actually gets to becoming one.
I would also like to see the Fable we were originally promised back when it was Project Ego made.
