I see more and more games like this and I never understand why someone would want to do this. I go to work to do this. Why would I want to do it at home when I could be having fun?


Because it's a game and has game-like elements that would ideally be "fun" for the people interested.

Like Papers, Please. It's a game about being an overworked/underpaid border patrol dude with a family that's hungry and dying.

But it's still fun because it's like hardcore Simon Says.

I can see how it could be fun and, definitely, the addictive quality of these kinds of games. I just would never play them, personally.

Here's my idea: Vikings. Everything that has to do with Vikings.
Norse Mythology.
Seafaring.
Naval combat.
Raiding.
Brutal battle.

Part action game, part ocean exploring game, part naval RTS, part GOING TO ASGARD AND ****ING S*** UP.

Some day, I will learn to make this a reality


so you want a viking remake of sid meier's pirates

Except with more mythology and raiding battles where you plan the raid, weapon loadouts, but then play as one viking, wrecking people's faces.

A work simulator? No thanks! I'd never play it.

indeed.

sounds utterly boring.

even if you are the boss, i don't wanna be reminded of work (or even reality) when i'm gaming.

It's been done already. HOWEVER, what if we had a sim where you were in charge of a group of people who were working on a sim game where you were a guy who was in charge of a group of people? They'd model the Boss of their game based on how the Boss of the game you're playing treated them. I'd call it Sims Sim: The Simulation. GotY contender right there.
