A couple of weeks ago I had an idea for a very story based video game, (no cut scenes though, and all the story sequences are skippable!) here's the plot synopsis in around about 7 lines:
You are an army veteran who had you're squad leader turn against you and became the leader of an evil alien organisation. You were a 20-year old then and now, about 10 years later, you're ex-squad leader has made a doomsday device. So you leave you're Mum to go save the world. But... You're team is assembled of rookies who don't even know how to fire a gun. So you'll have to train them, survive, steal alien's weapons and still save the day. You've got you're work cut out for you. You defeat your arch nemesis, although you're friends were shot and when you come back, you come back a hero. But.. you're Mum's got lung cancer. She dies in you're arms and of course you are terribly sad. You find a machine that could revive you're Mum (for one week, to say goodbye.), or it could revive you're friends (for the rest of their lives.). YOU make the decision.
The game would be a hard-as-nails, FPS/Strategy game set in the year 2028.
