I was kicking around this idea today as I was making a demi-glaze from scratch.
There are games that were never made but should have been.
1. Groundhog Day
The idea of replaying the same day over and over making different choices in a sandbox setting is awesome. I mean if only I could pick up a shotgun and go blasting the Ned Ryerson character in the face would make me a very happy person.
2. The "Madden Curse" game.
C'mon how cool would it be. To be the evil force behind the Madden curse. You could damage and destroy pro-athletes using environmental kills, psychological attacks, or through bad karma.
3. Super Christian, Happy, Stimulating, socially acceptable game.
It's kind of like Grand Theft Auto. Except you don't steal anything, kill hookers, or anything else for that matter. You work a 9 to 5 job. You get a house. Then get married. And have children. Then get a second mortgage. So pretty much it's like the Sims. Except you can't be gay. Or own a robot.
4. Rock Band : Reunion
Just like rock band, except it's been years since you played together and one of your members died tragically so you have to settle for some douche bag. And instead of having a meter to gauge how well you're doing you get one to gauge your animosity toward one another. And if it peaks you have to pound furiously on your instruments as your lawyers discuss licensing rights to your songs.
5. Call of Duty 5: Brother Against Brother
Only problem. Noobs will claim lag whenever they have a muzzle loading musket.
