Weekend Debate: Your everyday life as a videogame
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!
