That’s exactly what was discussed above, Jesusrapper. I’ve watched a video of a guy having great fun with his friends climbing up a single pillar with ladders on the side… for hours. (King of the Ladder) That same guy played a few games of what people are calling “Hunger Games” (like in that video) and he said it was too boring to post. MORE BORING THAN A LADDER.
You don’t have to dig to hole yourself in, though it makes it much easier.
The thing that really bugs me about this idea (besides the broken gameplay) is that it’s a very simple old concept that people keep wanting to label Hunger Games for no good reason other than there’s a movie. It’s like suggesting we play LOTR: one side is gondor and the other side is the orcs… and we shoot each other with arrows… go! We can do so much better without restricting ourselves to that intellectual property.
