Weekend Debate: Your everyday life as a videogame

The Weekend Debate

First things first, apologies for the distinct lack of any debating last weekend. Alas, circumstances conspired and it wasn’t possible to get a prize together in time. However, normal service resumes today.

This week’s topic is inspired by the brilliantly bizarre Men’s Room Mayhem, announced for PS Vita earlier this week. In case you missed it, it’s a quick-fire action title that tasks you with managing traffic and enforcing etiquette in a gentleman’s washroom.

Duly, I want to hear your ideas for other games based on the humdrum minutiae of everyday life. A side-scrolling brawler set against the backdrop of your morning commute to work? A match-three puzzle game based on re-arranging your CD collection in alphabetical and/or chronological order? Fire away.

The authors of the four most entertaining responses win themselves the rather incongruous pairing of Twisted Metal for PS3 (signed by co-creator David Jaffe himself) and Little Deviants on PS Vita. Good luck!

Terms & Conditions

Did you enjoy this?

easy it would be another line drawing game set inside a game retailer, you would have to guide customers to the latest releases ensuring they don’t accidently pickup the pants knock off game of a similar name, whilst making sure the staff kept the shelves stocked, nobody wants an angry customer who cant get the new game

How about a game where you are the parent and your child is destroying various things around the house. The challenge is to find resources in a Terraria style way to fix whatever is broken. You can slow down the childs’ whirlwind of destruction by placing food as bait. If you want to find resources from outside of the house then you must wait for the babysitter to come when the sun sets and you can scavenge the town for parts. The end game will be catching the child (watch out for it’s tantrum of terror move) and locking it behind bars in it’s cot.

I found the announcement of Men’s Room Mayhem to be particularly amusing, especially regarding the etiquette described in the blog post – an unwritten, unspoken set of rules to which every man adheres!

Anyway, regarding the question, I can’t help but think that a gardening-based game using hack ‘n slash mechanics would be amazing fun! Being given a badly overgrown garden and having only a minute to neatly trim hedges and prune trees before your efforts are assessed, and you’re given a mark out of 100. Additional features could involve precision-based hedge shaping, using controls similar to Metal Gear Rising’s precision Blade Mode. On harder (and larger) levels, you could have to contend with various dangers, such as wildlife and brambles.

Supermarket Rush: you arrive ate a supermarket with little time to make your everyday shopping. A randomized list of things you need for the day would be generated, and then you would go on the quest of getting those things. Quick-time events and quick puzzles would be the challenge for every item on our list. If you were to miss any item, that would affect your performance the next day.

 
NekoRoksaks 3 May, 2013 @ 5:16 pm   7

A game where you try to change TV channel with the TV remote, when there are strange things happening sametime. Like being super drowsy or just had an snack time of greasy chips.

-Ask a cute girl out,
-Throw paper at a garbagecan,
-Play on your phone
and much more.

My suggestion: Traffic Buster. It’s everyone’s annoyance, but allows for some great gameplay: Your task is to commute to work (or home) in time, so you have to try to find the fast lane, switch lanes to open spots, overtake whenever possible, and try to find those shortcuts (past the gas station?).

You have to choose between the busy highway, or the secundary roads, with less traffic, but with the possibility of running into a tractor that will slow you down.

Are you going to take the risk of speeding, or overtaking by the safety-strip? You might get caught by the police, and get a steep fine!

Of course there are difficulty levels (different cities, day before christmas etc). The game could use Google Maps, Streetview or similar.

Come to think of it, why doesn’t this game already exist??

 
dale619 3 May, 2013 @ 5:26 pm   11

How about a game where lots of things get in your way whilst your walking to a certain destination (such as work) and you have to get there in a certain time limit. You could have slow (old)people taking up pathways in front of you, parents taking up room with pushchairs, cars not stopping at zebra crossings, pathways closed off for maintenance and other normal occurrences that happen everyday whilst walking to work.

 
chrisboers 3 May, 2013 @ 5:26 pm   12

Ow, didn’t see you actually mentioned something like this in your post.. Oh well, it’s the first, and best idea that popped in my head..

 
Nebbs 3 May, 2013 @ 5:28 pm   13

Super Shaving Ultra Extreme Edition…..Trim those whiskers as close as possible, starting with a humble cut throat razor eventually gaining enough experience points to upgrade to a Triple Head Rotary electric razor complete with battery level meter and self cleaning head! Watch you dont cut yourself tho or miss any rogue stubble as experience points will be deducted when the timer hits zero. Have you got what it takes to avoid the dreaded five o’clock shadow!!!!

 
Timmerson- 3 May, 2013 @ 5:28 pm   14

You’re in a Classroom taking an exam. Each question is like a minigame level, and if you can lean over and look at a classmate long enough (while the teacher’s back is turned) you can ‘cheat’ and change the paramaters of the minigame. The maze levels will have less obstacles or enemies, etc. or the background goes all psycadellic if you ‘cheat’ with the class stoner or something.
The real fun starts when you play multiplayer. If you and your friend can get into the same game then you’ll work on the same questions together.
A combo of puzzles and mazes where you have to avoid little dots (or math symbols) that are bouncing around and will kill you if you hit them.

 
Golwar 3 May, 2013 @ 5:29 pm   15

Hm, maybe it should reflect life as a gamer. You want to spend as much time as possible with your games, but are restricted by physical needs (hunger, thirst, sleep etc.), duties (work, school, chores etc) and temptation (social media, girlfriend, some other huge events as CL football etc.) with random events on top.

So you as the gamer have decision to make, that come with a cost.
If you don’t sleep and didn’t fill your fridge to eat, you might not be so well prepared to face the rage of your gf.
And maybe you shouldn’t always react when Twitter alerts you about a new incoming tweet. Or revisit that PS blog all that frequently. But the reward might be a gifted game or two, so it might be worth the effort?! ;)

Actually reminds a bit of those Japanese dating sims. Yes, I played even those somewhen in the distant past. :P

Extreme Jar Opening (Granny Version)

In this game you are tasked with opening jars for your granny. At each level you receive increasingly older jars with jam and pickled vegetables that your grandmother found in the attic where she hoarded them for eons (“I made this when I was 55, you know”).

The sheer amount of time that has passed forces you to use elaborate equipment, like forks, knives, spoons etc. and intricate contraptions and long-forgotten techniques, increasing the danger involved in opening the pesky jar. You need to open the jar before the time runs out and your granny gets bored starts talking about her time during the war.

LucoLoss 3 May, 2013 @ 5:34 pm   18

And what about getting in the front line on some show/performance through the whole crowd? With different types of “enemies” and slowdowns like thrown beer, cigarettes, bar etc.

 
Stonesthrow 3 May, 2013 @ 5:44 pm   19

It would pretty much be an infinite loop of me playing videogames..

 
lukethegooner08 3 May, 2013 @ 5:51 pm   20

A cool game for me would be if you got shrunk kinda similar to the ‘Honey, I shrunk the kids’ where you have to navigate around your whole home whilst on an adventure facing what you deem to be giant dogs/cats to get to the device which shrunk you to get back to your larger former self!

 
Lunastra78 3 May, 2013 @ 5:57 pm   21

WHAT DID I JUST TELL YOU?!!… A family-unfriendly memory game which consists of my girlfriend droning on about work/family/life/opinions for half an hour. Temptations will arise in the form of an in-game net browser and in-game movie viewer.

At the end of that half-hour, she will ask a question concerning what information has been shared, like “what color was the neck-tie my aunt wore at the family gathering eight years ago?”.

Failure to answer correctly will lead to my girlfriend screaming “DIDN’T YOU HEAR ANYTHING THAT I JUST TOLD YOU??!” and another half-hour of lecturing, this time with web-browser and movie viewer turned off.

After the inevitable success of this game, I am already planning the sequel: WHERE DO YOU THINK YOU ARE GOING?!!

 
adamteee 3 May, 2013 @ 6:00 pm   22

Daily commute vita!You’re sitting at the back of the bus and other passengers are filling the seats. Reach into your bag and choose from a variety of objects to throw, flick, hurl, fling and lob at the non suspecting passengers. But don’t get caught by the bus driver!
Available weapons:
Sling shot (pull back using the front and rear touch screens)
Chewing gum (use the front touch screen to flick it into their hair)
Peanuts (front touch to flick)
Paper aeroplane (throw with a flick of the screen then control it through the air with the vitas gyroscope)
The possibilities are ENDLESS!!!!

 
BluSpykz 3 May, 2013 @ 6:00 pm   23

I don’t expect to win with this answer, but I expect a lot of people would agree!

Resident Evil. A game based on your mundane life in society, and the thugs, hooligans, and noisy neighbours all around that spoil the serenity.

Your role will be to take only the action that is necessary. Any over-the-top actions will duly bring the cops around.

Loud music from your neighbours? Take a baseball bat to their stereo system. Meet thugs face to face with a baseball bat – Grand Theft Auto style. And people graffitiing local places? Simply spray THEM, ala PS2′s The Warriors. (I think we’re looking at a Rockstar 18s + game here!)

And for DLC, available for people who pre-order? Take on the role of one of these thugs, and get swift punishment by someone else!

 
Avengerrr 3 May, 2013 @ 6:10 pm   24

Health & Safety game. A mix of identifying the faults of H&S as well as being assigned environments (as puzzles) to map health and safety precautions. Combine with some leader boards, and see who has the best score and knowledge/intuitiveness. Environments would have to be quite open and sandbox style, so the score is subjective enough. Ha, might be good with the Vita’s AR mode too.

 
MafiaCub 3 May, 2013 @ 6:18 pm   25

Breakfast Run 2013.

A game of skill and memory. Starting at 6am your character will get up, can you waddle downstairs without falling over in order to get your morning coffee pick me up?

Then you need to start preparing lunchboxes for your children, yourself, and your partner. A game of tetris ensues as you try and fit all the food in the tiny box.

Memory skills are on the line next, as you wake your family and have their breakfast orders bellowed out down the stairs. Are you able to get everything right to keep your family happy?

Finally, time management skill are at task as you make sure everyone is dressed, and have all the things they need for their day before you try and cram them all in a car and leave for your day.

as levels increase, start times change with new jobs, and new babies join the family.

 
link1983 3 May, 2013 @ 6:21 pm   26

My daily routine currently consists of desperately applying for paid work and looking after my 4 week old son. Not easy. I see it as a massive open world RPG with a strong villain organisation. The Villain is the Job Center. It has many sub level characters you fight with but you will never get where you want to be. They will often send you back to the start and always succeed in belittling you and making you feel insignificant even though your character gets no benefits because his love interest has a job, he is still made to feel that he is lower than an estate agent (no offence intended, but their practices are just awful).

The happiness and lighter sides come into their own because of the Nappy changing mini games and the freedom to walk around town with his partner and son.

It has 2 outcomes, 1, a job is secured and his world becomes a much better place. 2, His hate morphs into something worse and he finally becomes a politician to wake the rest of Etonia up.

 
DsonicX 3 May, 2013 @ 6:23 pm   27

I’m Chris the bin man forever taking people’s rubbish and recycling it but everyone keeps creating more rubbish than myself and my fellow bin men can handle and it’s beginning to destroy the planet
One day I mad scientist doing mad capped experiments disposes of his biological waste and it mutates the garbage in his bins into a living, breathing mutated creature hell bent on accelerating the earth, and humanity’s demise
Able the eat more rubbish and grow more powerful and create other mutated creatures only Chris and the bin men can clear this mess up and hopefully reverse the damage that has been done
This would be played in a side scrolling beat em up way similar to streets of rage 2 or final fight and of course be awesome :)

 
TheNudgeMan 3 May, 2013 @ 6:32 pm   28

Play! Station!

A rhythm action game where you control an avatar who sits on his…chair all day playing Playstation.

You help him play a variety of games like RPG’s, shooters, sports titles, and other rhythm action games. You control him via a constant barrage of quick-time events and try and help him get the Platinum Trophy in an ever expanding backlog of games.

There is no end to the game, as thanks to DLC and Playstation Plus, he will never run out of games to play.

 
chriseggy 3 May, 2013 @ 6:35 pm   29

Would love to see a video game simulator! All the fun of playing video games…in a video game. Just imagine, it could play like sims, as you decide what pizza/various other junk foods fuel your gaming session, and make sure you don’t stay up too late playing Modern Shooter 7: Duty Calls :P
Plus, it would incorporate the various game mechanics from the games you play, so it’s got something for everyone!
If no one makes this, I will.

 
A_Nonny_Moose 3 May, 2013 @ 6:52 pm   30

Summer Garden Rock Festival

A rhythm game compilation using classic Guitar Hero gameplay based around garden activities.

There would be getting the washing off the line, where you have to catch it in time with the music as it falls to the ground. If you press the button at just the right time you fold it for extra points! Then there’s cooking and serving a BBQ. Flipping the burgers and serving friends and family to a catchy beat. And scoring penalties, selecting the right lanes and shooting at the right time to avoid the family dog, who will puncture the ball if you make too many mistakes.

Song selection would be done using the radio, and each song would play differently for each activity. You’d start off with the easier songs of course and work through to hard ones, and you’d also switch between family members along the way, depending on the activity. For folding the clothes, you’d start off as Dad, doing the easiest songs, and end up as Mum in the toughest final stages. Dad would have the hardest songs at the BBQ, while the Kids would have the hardest songs for penalties.

 
XzSlLENTSNIPERzX 3 May, 2013 @ 7:06 pm   31

My life game would be a mixture of Grand Theft Auto’s exploration and the Sims’ level of engagement. Let me elaborate, I enjoy doing lots of cycling, therefore, the cycling in GTA: San Andreas matches my life as I like to explore whilst cycling. With regard to the Sims aspect, I do lots of studying so that aspect would tie in with the Sims. If I were to actually have a game it would be completely linear as I rarely stray from my distinct daily routine. Thus, because of this it would be a sidescroller – much like Castlevania games on the PS1 – but with a large world to explore.

On the journey the player would be able to learn things by collecting collectible books and boost statistics as is done in the Sims by doing that skill’s respective activity.

 
KRadiation 3 May, 2013 @ 7:14 pm   32

Game name: Where the heck did I put it?

The first level would have you load into in a living room. Seconds later the familiar sound of a mobile phone is heard. “Where the hell did I put ‘the phone’?” Sounds out. You now have the length of the ringing to find it. Check down the sides of the sofas, under the tables, behind boxes, your back pocket. Bonus points awarded for finding it before the ringing stops. Failure to do so makes finding the phone even harder.

Other levels include looking for the tv remote as Loose Women comes on, finding your car keys when you have to leave for work, finding your kids school shoes 30 seconds before you have to leave to take them, where is my playstation joypad, the missing USB stick, the pen that’s usually next to the phone and you have to write down an important message (with extra points for remembering the exact message when you have the pen and have to write it)

Complete them all and unlock the super hard difficulty of ‘vague wife ‘.
Struggle to even figure out what my wife has lost as she describes ‘that thing I had the other day’ or ‘remember on the news they had that new thing, where’s the one I had that wasn’t the same but I said it was?’

 
Winckle 3 May, 2013 @ 7:23 pm   33

I would make the “I NEED some SLEEP!” videogame.

You are in the skin of a high school student who desperately needs some sleep. The ennemy of your game is your whole neighborhood. They will do everything in their power to prevent you from sleeping.
The first level for example would be simple like shutting off your alarm clock or lying to people so that they won’t bother you early in the morning.
Then, when you get to the last levels of the game, it will get much harder. People will organise events in the neighborhood that you will have to undermine to be able to sleep. You will have different approachs : you can manipualte people so that they will do actions in your favor or you can take actions in your own hand like sabotaging the nearest power grid so that you can sleep in peace.
According to the amount of sleep you will get at the end of each level, you will be rewarded with a certain score. The “ZzzZzz” is awarded when you get the maximum amount of sleep in a level.
Finally, if the game is succesfull, a DLC can be done where the roles are reversed.

sabien29 3 May, 2013 @ 7:36 pm   34

A game that focuses on your ability to dodge destractions to get your work done before deadlines. Every student knows that getting your work done (especially this time of year around exams) is vital to you being able to pursue your dreams.

However there is a catch, with the rising of destractions such as internet and video games getting your work done in time is becoming an impossible task.

The aim of the game, complete the alloted exam period by handing in all assignments on time. The catch, the lure of the internet, and chatting to friends using the PSN network. This is a multiplayer game that encourages you to waste time talking to friends and strangers about tactics ultimately leading to your downfall and the failure of your character in the game.

 
ten-bucks 3 May, 2013 @ 8:03 pm   35

1st is garden manager. you’ll start with a patch of land then have options for a greenhouse/shed. playhouse for kids or trampoline. you have to maintain by giving paint job, oiling shed/greenhouse doors. replacing parts of playhouse after storm. planting grass seeds/buying turf and tools to maintain it. plants, fences, pots. summer-autumn-winter-spring decide when best to plant. deal with moles catch them in the act and tap touchscreen. thief nicks your tools so buy an external night light, cheers

pewpie99 3 May, 2013 @ 8:14 pm   36

Ladies and gentlebugs, I would like to introduce you all the foreseeable future of mind-altering games..

The game where you sit down in front of the console and play a game; in which you sit down in front of the console and play a game; in which, you sit down in front of the console and play a game etc etc etc..

It’s called Existential Mindfraktal. Coming to a store near you!

 
Gary485 3 May, 2013 @ 8:16 pm   37

My game would be called Smoker.

The gameplay would involve the player attempting to smoke as many cigerettes/roll ups/cigars as they can in a given stage. Top down camera. You have to find as many things as possible that you can smoke and then find a good place to quickly smoke them. You have a bar on each stage that says how much you need to smoke before the stage is clear. There is an addict timer that counts down and if you haven’t smoked enough before the timer is up then you fail the stage.

Not only is it a challenge to find the right fags quickly enough, but you also have to figure out how to light them. Sometimes there’s a lighter to find, matches or anything in the stage that has fire. You also have to watch out where you’re smoking. There are no smoking areas with guards(bouncers, children, wife etc)in these areas that will take everything away from you if they spot you smoking. By taking risks in no smoking areas you’ll get the rebel bonus and fill your bar quicker as well as get a higher score. It’s a risk reward system. You also get a bonus at the end for causing the least amount of second hand smoke as possible. Stage specific gimmicks for score as well.

Damn 1250 ch!

 
Gary485 3 May, 2013 @ 8:17 pm   38

Wow that post took ages to cut down. Am I allowed to state my ideas for my one game in more than one post?

 
ten-bucks 3 May, 2013 @ 8:20 pm   39

2nd is IRATE MATE. best played with at least 1 friend online. go to the pub for beers. start with £50. each buys a round. get a packet of crisps. stick a couple of pound in the bandit. buy a lady a drink. swipe your mates pint and blame someone else. he forgot who bought the last pint so he buys another one and the winner is who goes home with the most money. usually never me lol

 
S-o-h-a-i-l 3 May, 2013 @ 8:39 pm   40

An open world collectible heavy adventure game in which you travel around the globe, crashing any place at all that serves food of any kind, in search for what seems like a non existant dish that your fiancé will actually enjoy (that woman seriously dislikes food !).

The collectibles will be in the form of brochures from the different food joints visited, and many cinematic heavy cutscenes are involved with an overarching, highly tense and emotional story with many twists along the way such as the spoon instead of fork blunder, and the perfect wedding cake search, that serves as a secondary (optional ?) goal which consequently leads to an entirely different ending (that’s right, multiple endings ! Bet you weren’t expecting that).

Release date: Winter 2013, Platforms : Playstation 3, Playstation Vita & Playstation 4.
Cross Play, Cross Buy, Cross Save across all three platforms ! (Have I let slip Sony’s cross generation support plans…whoops !).

 

A university based game revolving around ensuring your students don’t fall asleep in lectures. It’s all too easy to get distracted by ipads, phones, sleep or even blank sheets of paper in an extremely boring lecture, so I suggest a reactions based game involving watching over a whole lecture room and making sure everyone keeps their attention on the boring stuff. Different actions could be required depending on the nature of the distraction, with higher levels giving you larger lectures with more students and more interesting problems. Students still feeling the effects of the night before require extra attention, couples who give attention only to each other may need separating.
Overall, your performance is gauged by the grades of the people in the room, the more you let the distractions go, the lower the average grade falls. Once you reach a low enough standard, it’s game over. High grades also allow you to buy bonuses, such as the lecturer telling a joke to regain attention, or show a short video. Lectures each have a set time you must manage through, with ever increasing difficulty.

 
declan__watson 3 May, 2013 @ 8:43 pm   42

Hello Fred
Hello PlayStation Nation its great to be back on the blog, sorry for my 2 months of unactivity. :)
Anyway back on topic, my everyday life type game would be my adventures in my home town in Scotland. So, say I was playing a game, it would be like PlayStation Home. Id be able to play a mini game of Killzone or Gran Turismo and it would be like me raging whenever I get killed or get beaten in a race. ;)
Listing to my own music or poducer like Daft Punk. My song I would choose would be “Get Lucky” which is a really good song and ive listened to it about 100 times. :)
Then if it was watching my own favourite film on my Xperia S like Men In Black, id make a sketch of me with an xperia, just sitting around and relaxing.
So that is as much as I will explain trust me if I explained my whole 15 year of life it wouls take me about 15 years to tell you ;)
Have a nice weekend gamers, you too Fred :)

 
Mark917 3 May, 2013 @ 8:46 pm   43

My life would be a 2.5D Sidescoller RPG located in Dublin, Ireland. It would consist of making trips to the grocery store in the village to get supplies like bread, milk, butter, drinks and pizza!
-Avoid traffic in eye-popping 2.5D gameplay
-Travel to 9 amazing locations (with DLC soon on the way)
-Gain abilities such as fastwalking and better eyesight to get across levels faster and to make night levels easier
-Jump over obstacles obscuring the sidewalk like cracks in the ground, large puddles and horse droppings
-At the end of each level, purchase items in the store with spare change found on the street to upgrade your characters abilities and appearance
Yes, don’t delay on your pre-order, get “Mark917 Goes to the Shops” today! Pre-order comes with special bonus “Jogging Shorts” DLC for the fastest possible movement right off the bat!

 
silmorat1 3 May, 2013 @ 8:47 pm   44

the school run
the game is based on a typical family in the pursuit of happiness. you get up, shower, get dressed etc get the kids up (not easy) clothed, breakfast,pe clothes ready, school run time. deep breath hundreds of kids and other parents hustling and bustling to get to school you get the picture?

the game would be tofind the most efficient way, strategizing, working out the best packed lunch combination, dont forget pick up time and helping with the homework too.

dlc would be based on the teachers day,and of course the zombie edition with err……zombies

 
declan__watson 3 May, 2013 @ 8:51 pm   45

@silmorat1
To add to that, bring out DLC where the school is deserted and all the teachers and children have turned into Zombies and call it ZombieBeings DLC :) ;)

 
DoYouLikeMyID 3 May, 2013 @ 8:54 pm   46

Part 1/2

I think I’d like a game about school… I’m serious.

A game that will make school much more fun and will fit every single person’s needs. In school today, teachers have to teach up to 30 students at a time, not necessarily acknowledging every students individual needs, just think how much more relevant the education would be if it was specifically tailored to every single person’s needs. You would be able to freely choose which subjects you want (some will still remain obligatory though), and the game would teach partly based on your strengths and weaknesses, and you’d be able to go at your own pace.

In the game there would be lessons from teachers, animated characters of course, not just video lessons, and you’d have to give your input every once in a while. There’d also be, for example, multiple choice assignments, you’d get grades, and of course there’d need to be encouragement to play, for example, a really hard to get platinum trophy, which includes a gold trophy about finishing school with straight A’s, and that should be as hard as it would be in real life.

 
DoYouLikeMyID 3 May, 2013 @ 8:55 pm   47

Part 2/2

The game could also have features like checking online to see how well other people did on the test you just took, and with the PS4’s special traits, you’d be able to chat to other people who are playing the game, other “students”, if you will. They would be able to help you out if you had problems with a subject, or a similar issue.

Obviously the game shouldn’t replace school, but rather supplement it, or function as a tool for self-studying. And best of all, every student would be able to keep up with the education, because they’d be able to take it at whichever pace they’d want, like replaying past lessons and such. And when they feel like they’re ready they can take a real exam (not in the game, but in reality), and thus, get an official education.

I think it would help a lot of people to not only do well in school, but actually enjoy it :D

You’re aWkwArD anDY, facing increasingly awkward situations. 1st day at high school? At lunch you bite into a chicken nugget, but it’s actually fish. You’re allergic. Your tongue swells up, eyes stream, & you have an uncontrollable need to go to the toilet. You’re a blabbering, crying, incontinent, mess, trying to maintain normality. Somehow you make it to your 1st kiss, but you’re chewing gum shoots into your loved one’s mouth, requiring the Heimlich manoeuvre (dextrously using the Sixaxis) & a visit to the hospital by bike, through a nettle field. In shorts. Your Confidence levels up, unlocking missions like your 1st house party, and abilities like Joke-Telling or Flirting. But you can also shun the limelight, earning aWkwArd stealth points, allowing handling embarrassing situations with ingenious anonymity. (You can also while away the hours, alone, playing a familiar social awkwardness mini-game..And, if your Confidence is high enough, online – & when higher still offline – multiplayer is unlocked.) Push your Confidence too far though & you will become ARROGANT ANDY, rapidly diminishing your popularity, but become too anonymous & you will be known solely via the web as anon, losing your name, friends, identity.

Here’s a good game mockup for me

Supersmith’s Adventures:
This focuses on life and adventure as well as his mood. The aim of the game is you must perform tasks at college and at home and even at town and other places (some are DLC). The game starts on Spetember and ends on August and consists of four acts, Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer. Should his mood go down or under 30%, it’s game over and you must start the day all over again.

During the gameplay, you must watch your mood meter. This mood meter consists of three sections, green, neutral and red. The better the mood, more chances you will progress and you will unlock extras for flawless days and even weeks. Any incidents on that day you will fail that day and it’s game over. You can improve your mood by calming down or drink water throughout. You can also replay the days you has already played. One goal, try not to go into rage mode and be happy for the week. That’s my game.

Super Metro Eye-Contact!

Scrutinize the anatomy of all the girls in your subway wagon while using stealth to not get caught.

Also you have to avoid crossing your sight with the strangers at all costs because they shoot plasma balls from the eyes.

Done by SCE Japan Studio and I’m sold.
