All About Scarbridge
Mondays are never fun, hard to wake up in the morning, long days and a night that ends all too soon. Luckily it's Thanksgiving week, only two days in school and then a five day break, so I guess there isn't too much to complain about. Stayed at school longer then usual, helped the Juniors decorate the hallways for tommorrows contest (we're a sure win, CSI theme ftw).
On my drive home, and after picking up some milk, I was thinking about what game to review next (which by the way is Men of War). But, as my train of throught zoomed on I thought about something, how come noone has ever made a game that is a police simulator? The kindof game where you play as a Patrol Officer, responding to calls and doing investigations in at least a semi-realistic way. It might be interesting, you could zoom down the streets with lights and sirens blazing, deal with high-risk calls and enforce the law, I would like it, anyhow. The only game i've seen that can compare some would be the "True Crime" series, Police 911 (Arcade only), and the retro "Police Quest", but nothing modern or worth playing these days.
No idea, but I think it could make for a real good game, if done right. I think if I ever get around to learning how to program i'll look to create a project like that, who knows.
Comment your opinions, like the idea or not? Scarbridge out.
Second Thought: There is also a emergency simulator available that allows you to command police, fire and medical units. The game is called 911 First Responders. I play the game now and then with the "Los Angeles Mod" which changes the european units to American units. I would reccomend it to anyone interested in the genre, but it would be no match for actually being able to ride in the cars and make arrests in first person.
