I have some thoughts, and my thoughts are trending towards sim (simulation) games. There's a bloggable series in this, I just know it.
The idea for this came from a combination of 2 sources:
1. My love for games like Harvest Moon
2. Changing a poopy diaper
Weird, I know! But work with me on this one. Harvest Moon - Concept: Build up a farm. Plant seeds. Water, wait, harvest. Get animals. Feed, groom, kill & eat. (Ok not kill. Or eat. But you can eat their by-products, I'm looking at you, Chicken!) This game would not be fun in real life. I mean, yes, farming has its definite advantages, like providing me with food which I love...but it is hard work. And I believe 4 hours of watering plants would not be quite as delightful in the hot sun as it is on my nice, soft bed.
So I know you're wondering how the poopy diaper comes into play. I was changing my little baby and thinking, "Would this be fun as a Sim game?" I know there is a sim baby game on DS but I have never played it. Maybe when you you it is just totally awesome to get a poopy diaper, and you feel a real sense of achievement when the baby is spotlessly clean again. Maybe I would like to change poopy diapers if I got 10 gamerscore for doing it.
What other things in this life seem totally boring, but you know you would lose yourself to if it was a sim game? (That is if you're like me and sim games just seem to suck you in and make you lose yourself.) Sim-Watch-Repair? Sim-Garbage-Man? Sim-Dental-Hygenist? The possibilities are endless!
