There is a game called Supreme Ruler 2020. I picked it up in a used book store and have put a few days into it. I can say I have taken over the
world except for Europe. This game is like simcity and command and conquer with enough things to modify you will be overwhelmed. Complexity.
Another good feature was from the Warhammer series. You could do a top down satellite view or zoom in to a 2nd person POV and get a good "almost
first person POV"
Skyrim, Love the environment. Open space. 1st person to 3rd person view.
COD, Battlefield 2042 or any current 1st person shooter. Take the teamwork strategic play and apply it to the above.
So my dream game would be to take the above and combine it. I want to be able to control armies and resources globally and drill down to the first
person POV if need be. Control armies like Supreme Ruler 2020 but have the actual battles be dependent on the individuals and team play like in the
current first person shooters. So instead of winning matches you are actually wining or losing battles on a global scale. Make the environment as
real as possible. Let me control taxes and education levels of my citizens.
Farmville. Millions of people play that game. Now make it into a much more global game like I propose. I know there are people that "sim-farm" but
don't like the 1st person shooters. Cool. I don't actually want to control where shrubs are placed or what crops are planted but someone does and I
want them to be part of the complexity.
Same for the sims, train tycoon, and all the nitch games. Roll it into one huge online game where you can play at any level.
Spore is close. It's a game I forgot that comes close but is WAY simplified.
