I just this morning thought about making a video game where you could go back in time and assasinate major figures who messed up our time to create a whole new reality that is peaceful and protected. And you would have to select the correct way to assissinate them in order to achieve the proper timeline change and perhaps factor in variables as well. I know this is alot like assissins creed but i was thinking something more realistic and less avatar like.

I had to check the URL at the top of the page for a minute because I thought I was on the wrong site.

It may interest you that this morning I had the idea to fashion a trombone out of banana skins and monkey poo but it might sound a bit like Justin Bieber so not sure.

Maybe I shouldn't have replied...

Sounds rubbish. How about a game where you take over the money supply of the world and set about creating an agenda of chaos, corruption and mass murder............

Hmmm... could be cool. The only thing I can thing of that would make it cooler would be if it weren't only about death. There are all kinds of actions that could be taken in the past that would change major events. Like, instead of assassinating Hitler, maybe another option would be to make Hitler's dad use protection or something.

There are all team behind a game... This idea is good but not easy to make.

Sounds like a city sim on a world scale.

Problem isnt programming in the worlds history and linking them all togther, its about the sea of people who disagree "what would happen instead".

At the end of the day, any man (or woman) that makes a decision could have as much to do with the mood they were in when they got up as any political influence, especially for royalty and dictators.

All in all, FAR too complicated for a game that only a small percentage would ever consider playing.

Play 'civilizations' instead

And let's make this game a third-person, open world, with a lots of trophies and achievements.

And who would publish this??..Ubisoft Montreal of course!:

There is a game that is sort of similar to the one you describe. It was a first person shooter on both PC and XBOX 360. It was called "The darkest of days."

I would definitely enjoy a game like that.

Or maybe going back in time to fix natural disasters or try to prevent wars... I like time travel

A lot of people think you're crazy trutherman and I have to probably agree with them. However, putting that aside, I've seen your "idea" pop up in some of the stories I read. So your idea is not unique to crazy people, unless the stories I've read are written by crazy people.

Should I associate with someone who's crazy and possibly be thought of as crazy by others? Interesting idea. Feels like school all over again, except the bullies use words like "crazy".

The Terminator films deal with this topic. A bunch of films do.

Probably the most famous questions is what would happen if you traveled back to 1910-1920 and assassinated Hitler before he rose to power? My idea to insert into this is what would happen if you DIDN'T have to kill him? What if all you had to do was make sure he didn't do XYZ?

You know... there's a video game forum for epic posts like this.

Not really seeing this Science and Technology to this more of half baked fantasy.

Just don't talk about the voices and microchips and I'm on board with the topic. But like someone else said, this probably belongs in the video game section, not Science and Technology...

And before entering into this sort of discussion it's clear that it's just hypothetical, right? I mean, you won't start grabbing guns and thinking you're a time traveler sent here to kill somebody???? And this is the whole problem with exposing your craziness on loudspeakers. Nobody will trust you...

Here're a couple stories similar to your idea:
He Walked Around The Horses (p. 513) by H. Beam Piper, A Science Fiction Argosy, edited by Damon Knight
10^16 to 1 (p. 10) by James Patrick Kelly, Asimov's Science Fiction, June 1999 issue

It deals with changing a timeline. I've read many. Sci-fi magazines are FILLED with this kind of stuff. I think the reason it's so common is because we don't like not being able to change the past. We're manipulators. We're creators. We don't like hard boundaries. Laws are made to be broken.

I think a game like that would tickle all my brutality buttons. I reckon if you made it so that the aim of the reconstruction of the time line, was totally amorphous, like you could make the timeline any how you liked, prevent us getting out of the stone age for example, or murder every Roman Legion to step foot outside Rome in the bad old days, that would be just brilliant.

Endless fun of seeing how many different paths could have been taken, just by tweaking one event, or causing devastation on a scale unimaginable in the time you visit... Thinking about gaming on that level is making me salivate a bit. I am off to eat a dry cracker now

Oh, and while I was enjoying truthermans idea, I have to say that I almost blew tea out of my nose all over my keyboard when I read your post. Totally blindsided me. It was like a brain mine, waiting to detonate and spread tea frag everywhere!

Awesome. Plus, it would DEFINITELY sound better than Beiber. Hell, Beiber will make a nice noise one day, probably when his vital sign monitor flatlines. That monotonous Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep will have more tone to it than his entire back catalogue.

If it was possible, that would be awesome. Another thing that would be good in such a game would be to prevent the assassination of a historical figure. What would be the consequences of saving Lincoln, JFK,and RFK, or what about a non-political figure like John Lennon, would the Beatles ever do a reunion?
