Any one play Libero Grande?
Was that the Playstation game that let you be the goalkeeper..?

That game (lets make a soccer club) looks ok, a bit to "real" for my liking as I would really like to see it done in a Theme Park style but I'm still going to give it a go :)

OK one for my fellow Aussies.

An NRL game where you play as the Ref, but you don't have a Labrador and cane, you listen to the linesmen and don't cross to the video ref every few minutes. :wink:

It was a ps1 game but I don't recall you playing as the keeper. Just one player. It was more 1st person.

My idea would take a licence of Highlander, but it might work on the Wii controller. Online beheading swordfighting game in first or third person in which there could "be only one". Maps of cities with lots of NPC's, you have to sense an immortals approach through force feedback. From each kill you get a little stronger. probably some balance issues, but would be cool.

Dull is when every game pitch is football based. It was intentional this time...

I'm not really a fan of statistic / management sims. Quick burst action / minigames are my fav.

I always thought a game involving birds (flying kind) would be cool (bare with me)....

Right from collecting twigs for a nest as a sparrow in a back garden.... to a diving eagle looking to grab a jinking rabbit in it's talons in the desert. Tonnes of possibilities, but all with a similar mechanic.

It'd work kind of along the same lines as pilotwings (pure retro genius). Once levels are completed, you'd keep the animals in an aviary where you could check them out. I think that would be a pretty decent hook and keep people playing.

...Well I like the sound of it!

There is a 3rd party football FPS that was made for the HL engine, called International Online Soccer. I didn't like it much, but some people seem to.

Oh and Libero Grande was a bit crap :P

There was a pigeon game


As for not a fan of statistic/management games, how about this.


Champ Man type thing, but instead of watching the game play bars, you get a little Wario Ware type mini game to play for a couple of seconds, this would determine the score and off you go to the next match in the season.

But then there would be no need for the management element because it would be all about how well you play the match.

Yeah, but it maybe the better a team you have the longer the game lasts or something, I dunno, it would be better for those people who like ststistics but don't have time for that kind of thing.
