I saw commentary on Left4Dead online today and thought “Hell if I was making a Zombie survival game I’d have it either crawl the users HDD for pictures of their friends or look online for photos of people from their area, then skin the zombies to look like that, hell I’d even let people online create and vote for features to put into areas of games to recreate the real-world as a zombie plague (zombie 6-for-a-pound-lighters guy? Zombie Pickwicks baked potatos? Zombie County South Coffee Shop at the Uni?, Zombies at Walkabout and the Town Hall?)”
Now that would be a fine and scary game.
And like all my other fine tech predictions (in-game online radio station for rockin’ out and snowboarding anyone?) I expect it to be done inside 6 months.
