How cool would it be if they made a video game where you could pull off all kinds of parkour moves to escape ememies? They could even make a parkour specific game in the Tony Hawk vein.

This new animation technology would be a perfect fit for a game with those kinds of elements.

Neal, I think you just made someone a lot of money. Great idea.

Actually, Eidos should be releasing a freerunning game this year. It's basically like Tony Hawk without the board, which surprisingly enough actually looks pretty lame. I was quite disappointed!

Lets take a fun, free, form of exercise, then make it so kids can enjoy it from the couch! just what our obese nation needs.

Neal, I dont mean this as rude to you, just my take on how activities that people could be actually doing get corrupted.

I saw the Eidos game advertised a few months ago, looks pritty cool, also the charactors are based on members from the London Parkour scene.

I'm sorry but i don't get playing sports on a computer (apart from motor sport cause i can't afford an F1 team). If i want to play sport i'm going to go outside and play with real people!

I'm with Tom on this one

Besides, this has been done before :-) in 1991 it was called "Prince of Persia" and the whole game was running away from people

I agree wholeheartedly with all of the above. I think it would be fun to play if I got it for free and it was horrible weather outside and I was sick and couldn't work out or work on the house or hang out with my kids...so yeah, pretty much never :p
