    "Professional" Trolleyboy 2012. You get bonus points for stopping directly behind people who are about to pull out as you take your sweet time loading up those trolleys. Character customisation would involve choosing a beanie colour. Excitement.

    There certainly are, but they're training simulators, not commercial products. My uncle worked on one for China.

    I kind of like them (the games). Not that I like them, but I admire the way they're engineered to give their specific audience exactly what they want, unlike AAA games, which keep trying to please so many disparate audiences and inevitably making compromises to that end.

    Actually, such a game could probably be awesome, with healthy doses of added corruption and scheming.

    One great use of game is to learn, all kinds of games, not just video games. Simulators are just something so natural I believe.

    Well, real-world accuracy would obviously be the top priority.

    The way people play a lot of MMOs (EVE comes to mind), that already exists. The only thing really missing is the virtual donuts and coffee.
