Memorial Day Weekend is about to launch, here in the US. It's 90 degrees (F) with air so humid you can chew it, and my office closes at 1:00 p.m. today. I can't even pretend that I'm focused enough to work on one of the 6 or 7 long-form, serious-matter, detailed-research drafts waiting for me in the post editor. They'll have to keep for working on over the weekend, while my spouse is away (which means I can't play Mass Effect 2 no matter how much I want to, because it's an "us" game and I promised).
So instead, let's get chatty, silly, and idealistic.
Every gamer has one: that idea you've been harboring forever, that you wish you could get someone to make.
Here's mine: a Neverwhere-based MMORPG. It doesn't even have to take place in London Below; it could take place in any of a hundred cities Below. But any way, it would be fantastic. The markets could be special monthly server events. The appearance customization options are fantastic and enormous. And the very patchwork nature of London Below would allow for unique class / skill set-ups, different from any other MMORPG out there.
I mean, sure, that much variation and customization means you'd never be able to balance it and it would probably end up being a PvP world prone to griefing and absent the magic of the book, but still... it's nice to dream, right? ;)
So, that's mine. What's yours?
