Ok, here is one. I would love to see a NASCAR type of sim game. There is a company called Medley Games trying to do one now but it's taken them 3 years and they still don't have anything to show for it. Since Grey Dog games rock I would love to see Grey Dog make one like this.
Some base ideas......
It would be cool to be a team owner. As a team owner you have several different drivers racing for you. Each driver has his own team working with him, crew chief, front tire changer, rear tire, gas man etc.... A team owner can have a lot of teams. Maybe 2 to 4 teams in Nextel, 2 to 4 in Bush, 2 to 4 in the Truck series and maybe some teams in ARCA or a localized race league. To build a team you hire a driver, build a team around him, get sponsers. The more money you have the better the drivers and team members you can get and the better cars you can build for your driver. If your a new owner with low funds then maybe your race in the Bush Series or maybe in ARCA or maybe in a localized racing league. Just depends on how much starting money your character has which should be editable when you start a game. Obviously Jeff Gordon or Dale Earnhart Jr. wouldn't accept a contract for ARCA because they are famous already. A driver who is as good but not established would accept an ARCA deal. The game should have an in game editor because sometimes its just fun to cheat and help your cause a little. Maybe as an owner you could sell products for you driver like t shirts, model cars, hats, whatever. Anyway, I think its a great game idea since NASCAR is the fastest growing sport right now. I like the idea of having a created/false game world with the ability to create your own game worlds. I like both. Oh well, what does everyone think about this?
