When the digital world is simply too boring for the rich…
“What?! You continue to play your video games on TVs? Like a child?” was not a phrase I anticipated us to get to as a society so rapidly. Or, at the least, it is going to be – if the nameless millionaires on the market have their approach.
Okay, possibly you’re missing some vital context. ICYMI, there’s an nameless wealthy dude who desires to fund a real-life battle royale event on a non-public island. Certain, they are saying it should solely be utilizing airsoft weapons, however I’m betting there’s nonetheless at the least a 40% probability that this ends with folks being hunted for sport, Harmful Recreation-style.
No matter how the precise event seems, this obtained us eager about different video games that crazy-rich folks (or loopy wealthy folks) may try to replicate in actual life…
Let’s get the obvious alternative out of the best way first. There have been even firms that did Mario Kart-themed go-karts, however (A) they have been mainly simply go-karts with costumes, and (B) they obtained tremendous sued by Nintendo for copyright infringement and now do “Superhero” races as a substitute – although you are mainly simply carrying mix-and-matched licensed onesies.
However how enjoyable would a custom-built sequence of kart tracks (based mostly on the very best MK circuits, in fact) in carts designed to appear like their in-game counterparts be? The [?]s might be linked to the carts through RF or Wifi, providing velocity boosts or debuffs on different automobiles, too.
Star Wars: Battlefront
Regardless of how you’re feeling about EA’s shooter, you possibly can’t deny that you simply’d have a blast combating by means of Star Wars’ most well-known battles in what would mainly quantity to the final word sport of laser tag.
Give everybody duplicate blasters and outfits (with built-in sensors) and set them free in huge recreations of units from the flicks. Be it the wide-open ice plains of Hoth or the dense woods and tight bunker corridors on Endor, it’d be a wonderful approach to spend a weekend.
We’ve all hear (or been) the one who prides themselves on with the ability to “Tetris” their approach by means of packing up a automobile for a highway journey or an residence throughout a transfer, however what about taking that sensible talent to increased (and considerably bigger) degree.
Our nameless millionaire buddy shouldn’t have any hassle offering the development tools and supplies wanted to play the world’s greatest sport of Tetris – the actual value would come from the insurance coverage, as a result of let’s be trustworthy: it wouldn’t be any enjoyable if all that heavy equipment needed to be operated by educated professionals.
Tremendous Smash Bros.
Actually, I’m shocked this one hasn’t been executed but. Smash Bros is all about Nintendo’s most well-known characters beating the hell out of one another till a champion emerges, which is basically the plot of each actuality TV sequence ever (although these normally focus extra on emotional beatdowns).
The IRL equal may forged real-world celebrities, from A-listers like Chris Hemsworth or Michael B Jordan right down to fan-favorite CW present forged members, in a trial-by-combat themed present set on platforms floating above a large foam ball pit. For any TV producers on the market: patent pending patent pending patent pending.
Have a look at this:
You possibly can’t inform me you don’t need to see this occur for actual. Even when they couldn’t afford actual lava flows, you understand watching Ostritch Knights combating evil Vulture Riders would kick all types of ass. The true trick right here could be getting the ostriches to just accept human riders.
We understand that there are many video games that might be produced in a a lot darker timeline – someplace there’s a billionaire desirous to hurl endangered birds onto an energetic building website – however we needed to stay to ones that wouldn’t make the world extra of a dystopian nightmare than it already is. What are the video games you’d prefer to see turn into a actuality? Tell us within the feedback, and for extra video games made by batshit-insane wealthy folks, stick round on IGN.
Jon Ryan is IGN’s Senior Options Editor, and hopes the subsequent sport wealthy folks make actual is Common Well being Care. He’ll most likely complain concerning the graphics on Twitter.
