I need video game ideas!

I am currently starting to design an Xbox 360 game using Microsoft XNA Game Studio (a library for rmaking X360, Zune and PC games in the C# language), but I am stumped at thinking of ideas. I have thought of many that seem good at the time, but while starting to plan, program, or make graphics for them, i realize it wasn't that good of an idea and give up on them. If it is good enough, it will be sold on the Xbox LIVE marketplace (under Community Games) and can win a contest. If you do help me and give a suggestion, please know this will be a 2D game (i can do all the work for a small game, but I can't do 3d modelling). Also, I can use an advanced physics engine and there aren't really any limits to ideas I could use. If you do give me an idea, I can even give you credit in the game. Also, it should be something original and innovative, think outside the box! Thanks in advance if you do help me out, this is probably the hardest part of game making!

I see it's a few people up here and, I'm sure they have great ideas but, I'm certain none of them are as original as mine. If it is in fact a new game idea you desire you must seek out those who see things from a different perspective. I my friend, can definitely help you in fact we can help each other my email is betterourselves720@gmail.com. If nothing else you owe it to yourself to find out this jewel of a game we can create together. Thanks in advance.

If you email me I'll tell you all about my game idea of supergods it's supposed to be a 3D game but it could work as 2d as well but we will need to form a team for communication if we want to get this right my email is andrewvincente311@gmail.com I look forward to making this game idea happen i haven't thought of a name yet so for now I'm just going with "Supergods: Unchained" to describe it.

my name is torrey and my gmail in trowe0420@gmail.com and I have a game idea called survive which is like a first person shooter and has split screen and co op but basically it is a zombie game where you wake up and your the only one left kinda like I am legend but you have to find guns but not like last of us where you have no bullets but you can buy more ammo and food and you have to survive different attacks in states in the us until you make it to the safe zone or build your own fort like walking dead until you build up enough recruits from multiplayer to make it to safe zone.your friends and you find wood and build and reinforce houses you find and players can keep on fixing up the houses while you are offline but the recruits you add on multiplayer are limited to maybe 20 a group and other games modes maybe more.you can patrol on foot or in armored cars you found parts to fix the cars with and fight from alabama to new york and its never ending from zombie survival battles to fixing your houses and cars on conquest to making it to safe zones .its alot more to it but it can be kinda like a battlefield with split screen and zombies and walking dead and be a open world game.

I have a completed plot outline, characters, levels and settings for a futuristic sci-fi Action/Adventure/RPG game. I have a paid illustrator working on the characters now, and editors polishing the all the text.

If this seems interesting to you, let me know and we could discuss. I could share the project document with you.


I would love to here more about this idea

I have an idea for a some what educational video game for natural selection. What if you made a game through the eyes of a predator, where it was your job to catch your prey. The prey that you catch get removed from the gene pool and the prey that you do not catch go on to have children with slight mutations. This could continue for many generations and eventually the prey would be superbly adapted to their environment and it would be much harder for you as the predator to catch them. Then maybe you would have to evolve to catch your prey (It would be cool if you could pick your own evolutionary traits - something like catch 30 prey for improved sight or catch 50 prey for improved speed...). I would play that game.

For some more context, this is the video which inspired this game idea. 8:30 minutes in - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFZxU4sA6qU
