    ... put up a dart board with types of game, another dart's board with types of game, throw darts at both and combine them and task my R and D chaps to come up with a mobile game within x months. Repeat this until my main home console PC team have finished their project and then get them to work on the most successful or most promising mobile game and convert it to a big game.

    An on rails kungfu game would be mental, as would a dancing platform game. You get the idea.

    You'd lose an awful lot of money.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Not really. The r and d team would be small and quirky titles are well placed on mobiles. Only ones that look like they have legs would be put for a console or PC release.

    You'd play Game Dev Story and try and apply it to reality?

    Make some gun crazy game with a load of twattish American characters. Set it in a country the Americans do not like and have hundreds of inventive ways to kill the locals.

    Sell millions of copies to idiots and then sell the rights for the franchise to Activision.

    Then I would invest 10% of the profits in Nippon Ichi and pocket the rest.

    I'd probably start to find the public very annoying, going online and complaining about every little thing they didn't like.

    I'd copy all Zynga's games and see how they like it.

    I'd also lawyer up to the max level.

    Playstation Mobile publisher licences are free just now. So if you really want to own/be a game developer, get to it! Or use Unity on PC. Lots of free ways to learn, at the very least.

    If just being the ideas guy is your thing, then fair enough, those will be no good to you. In which case I'm stealing your ideas.

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    And yeah, I'd make a Pokemon game for your phone where the creatures are spread all over the actual physical world and you need to get them based on your phone's GPS signal.

    I'd use Apple phones, of course, as this information is already included.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    I'd eat a curry. The hottest, most bowel destroying curry you could possibly imagine, washed down with laxatives. I'd then place buckets labelled 'A', 'B' and 'C' in my front garden, and wait until my arse started twitching. Then I'd proceed to squat over the edge of the roof of my house, pointing my arse vaguely towards said buckets, and see which one collected the most fecal matter as I rained down firey, shitty hell from above. After determining the winner, I'd open one of 3 pre made envelopes with a random game genre inside, and begin work on my master project.

    The proceeds of said game would then go towards some form of rectal replacement therapy.

    Then I'd employ a load of people from the forum, get them into a room tell them they are the game design "think tank".

    Set up cameras to record the results and post those online. With hilarious consequences.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Cleaner FPS, broom and toilet brush weapons. Squirt cleaning fluids in each others faces.

    Instead of capping flags,you have to clean up crap to take control of the zone.

    A game where you play as the civilian survivor of a war, for some reason the psychopathic enemies want your blood. Mirror's Edge mixed with Amnesia, make it fucking scary. Throw in some Silent Hill 2 type of psychological horror for good measure. No weapons, no safe spots, lots of darkness, some breaking the fourth wall mindfuck moments. Just lots of running, platforming and stealth.

    'Look at you, hacker: a pathetic creature of meat and bone, panting and sweating as you run through my corridors. How can you challenge a perfect, immortal machine?'
