PlayStation Game Runners Create Real Life Games

Do you ever get tired of grasping a plastic controller and thrive to use your body and mind in a real life “video game"? If not, ignore this and carry on with your vegetative state. If this does sound intriguing, you may want to check out PlayStation Game Runners. The new Facebook group depicts a group of twenty somethings competing to develop the coolest game to play in your neighborhood. With your friends. Without the Internet.

Blocks sees players stacking up cubes while aligning PlayStation button symbols. Think Jenga meets a Rubik’s Cube.

Flags has two teams compete to occupy a grid of flag poles and have their team hoist the greatest number to the sky. This is sort of like Risk meets territory control mode.

Hoops is all about finding caches of hidden balls in the streets and their corresponding hoops, and then trying to sink a few. This is like a scavenger hunt combined with a cheap carnival game.

It’s up to you to vote on which game you think is the coolest, and the winner will later be revealed at a live public event.

Oh yeah, there are also reality TV-style bios. One gamer apparently likes to play MMOPGs (Massively Multiplayer Online Player Games?) and RPGS, especially Call of Duty. Call of Duty is a great RPG, right?
