ONM Remembered – #394

“You get given money and you have to decide how to spend it. Or you can spend it on girls, or Vodka Martinis.”


from N64 Magazine issue 17 (July 1998)

A couple of sterling game ideas sent in from N64 Magazine readers.
I imagine at least one 007 game has made steps towards the level of procedure and freedom James and Daniel expound upon, and I hear Alpha Protocol was one step towards the interrogation/communication angle, but there’s something nice and intangible about ideas on paper like this. The notion of booting up a game where the goal is to stop an international ring of criminals, smugglers and ne’er-do-wells, and spending all your time in the casino or the backseat of a car just amuses me.

Animal World 64 also sounds mighty nifty, if just because I’m still hungry for a regular old animal simulator, though Tokyo Jungle might have that genre covered. Not that I wouldn’t be amiss to a bit of competition to liven things up.
