Strangest Game Ideas
This article would be about strange game ideas. What would it be like to play a side-scrolling Wolfenstein 3D? A Super Mario Bros. MMORPG? Or a Simulator Simulator?!

Quote of The Month
Stupid comments, funny quotes from games & forums or from anywhere related would go there. Yikes!
Music Soundtracks would be better suited for a site where people can hear a fragment of the song. Even if we put the songs on the website for people to listen to, it will be too inconvenient to really work well.

Strange game ideas: the title sucks but it might make a nice article but I would really give it a comic angle with doctored screenshots to illustrate.

Quote: this has been said before - if someone else wants to take on this part and make it something interesting, no problem - but I wouldn't have time to do it.

I see it would take some time do these - the second one (the "stupid ideas" - with some better name) is probably the most practicable. Like you said, only with illustrations, of course!

Help Me!

Someone sends in where they are stuck in a game and someone from the staff(maybe a forum member) will reply back on how to get "unstuck' and continue.

Thanks for the idea You're not the only one who has asked for this but I fear the 3-4 monthly cycle would be too long for people to wait.

Actually, it might not be a bad idea.
Altough instead of answering specific questions, the article should act more like a FAQ for points in the game at which the players often get "stuck".

I haven't gone though this whole thread yet, so I don't know if this idea has already been said. If it has, sorry.

Behind the Pixels
It'd be like a parody of the VH1 Behind the Music specials, where someone would write an article pretending to interview a famous character from Abandonware games, and find out what they'd been up to since there's no more games with them and such.

That's identical to the "Where are they now" article PC Gamer used to feature and I think that this has already been mentioned before? It can work well as long as it's written well too. Thanks for posting your idea though

More needed, now, is some actual work on these
