"Arabic Folktales as Videogames"
This certainly had been stuck in my mind for quite a while. I have been wondering: Why can't Arabic Folktales be translated into videogames? Putting aside all the Iraq-war-based videogames, I am certain that within each culture, especially Arabic ones, there lies a folktale that literary can be made into a videogame.
We cannot deny that we have seen Greeks myths being so, Western folks, and Japanese as well. People would mention Aladdin as being related to Arabic culture and whatnot, but how about those which are not perceptible on the surface? Digging tales of the past folklore would surely add waves of cultural as well as interesting historical consciousness...!! Let alone being totally new concepts and original and new to many (including people in the same region)
I am not well-versed on this matter, but I think it is a great idea...!!! Seeing all the emulation of a certain community with different settings that we usually are familiar with, and with stories that are not quite known to all is what I like to see in future videogames...
Any suggestion on this matter?!!!
